With the popularity surrounding stand-up, podcasts, and on-line lectures, the hunger for engaging public speakers is insatiable. More than ever there are opportunities for writers, teachers, students and leaders of various stripes to spread their message, and make a living, by communicating in captivating and compelling ways.
With this in mind, I’m keen to work with a small group of people who'd like to develop their public speaking skills, learn how to cultivate a platform, and carve out a living from the technology of speech.
This event will happen off the back of the first leg of the Holy Shift tour with Rob Bell. We'll have just just returned from speaking to around 20,000 people over 20 cities. I'll be breaking down my talk as a way of analyzing how to blend storytelling, humor and theory in a compelling way.
Is this a big event?
No. Tickets are capped at 30 to ensure we have an intimate workshop environment that can address the issues that attendees are facing.
How is the day structured?
While I'll be talking about various aspects of being a public speaker (crafting talks, building platform etc), this is a workshop where we'll be dealing with the issues in the room. So whether you’re preparing for a Best Man’s speech, wanting to become a professional speaker, or preaching every week in front of thousands, we’ll be able to address your questions and concerns.
We'll work hard from 9:30am - 4:30pm. Then, for people who're able to stay, we'll relax, drink, and hang out in the evening.
Where is the workshop taking place?
The venue will be given out within 48 hours of buying a ticket. It's in North Hollywood (zip code 91601). The nearest hotel (a 5 min walk away), is the Holiday Inn Express in N. Hollywood.
What's included in the ticket?
There will be a small gift pack for everyone, as well as tea, coffee, and soft drinks. I'll also provide lunch and drinks for the evening.
