How do you stand out in this noisy world of influencers, thought leaders and experts? Your rehearsed webinar or stage performance means the difference between a presentation that LANDS and a presentation that’s just BLAND.
Got customers? Got funding? Let’s get your pitch deck nailed down and your sales game dialed in. Whether presenting to Sharks or speaking at a local networking meeting, you’ll show up better prepared and blow away your competition.
For Professional Speakers
Practicing in front of the mirror won’t show you your blind spots. Running a new keynote speech by a seasoned peer is one of the best ways to polish your performance. I’m your “secret weapon!”
Your Virtual Speech Rehearsal: How It Works
Your Rehearse With Me session is perfect for any kind of presentation– whether virtual or in-person. Ballroom or boardroom, keynote speeches, training sessions, pitch decks, sales presentations, or an important Zoom meeting… let’s practice it!
Step 1: Check out below and choose a time for your session. (Leave yourself enough time to assimilate the feedback given and re-rehearse several days before your actual speaking event takes place.)
Step 2: Get ready to present by finishing your slides and preparing your notes, even practicing a bit on your own. Ideally you’ll want to have everything as close as possible to the presentation setting itself. If it’s virtual, let’s use the same background, sound, and lighting set-up that you’ll have for the “real thing.”
Step 3: Relax and enjoy! First we’ll have a clarifying conversation about what you stated in your intake form. We’ll make sure you’re all set up correctly, then you’ll perform your presentation. Afterward I will go over my notes with you. Read more about what your session includes.
Your Practice Session Includes:
For virtual presentations, we’ll assess background, lighting, and personal appearance. If you’re speaking in person, we’ll talk about your plans for attire and give you the right questions to ask the meeting planner to make sure you look your best.
If virtual, we’ll test your set-up for camera, sound, and screen sharing. If you’re doing a conventional stage presentation, we’ll discuss what you’ll need to know to be the A/V guy’s favorite speaker ever… what to ask and do to reduce the chances of tech problems.
I’ll be taking notes on your timing and your content’s effectiveness, sequencing, relevance, and achievement of goals. We’ll retool a section if we need to, discuss your title, and make sure your message is as clear as possible.
Your slides can be an incredible boost to your presentation, or they can have a distractingly bad opposite effect. I have special training in slide design, and so often speakers either have too few slides or too many. It’s a science and an art! I’ll make detailed recommendations and show you examples of ways to improve your deck.
I’ll give you kind and honest feedback about your vocal tonality, cadence, demeanor, and level of audience engagement. I’ll also advise you about memorization, stage presence, and anything else you need to know.
You’ll also receive my exclusive checklists and guidelines for making sure your presentation is as professional and effective as possible.
"I will never do a talk without Lorie! I was the only speaker who got a standing ovation at the event– in front of 1300 people. The typical meet-and-greet lines after the talk for the many other speakers were about a 15 minute wait – mine was 1 hour long!”
Betty Jean Bell – Marketing Consultant
