No bunk or junk or gobbledygook
No scam or sham, it’s a damn good book
It’s all in there, whatever it took
But maybe you don’t like to read
Indeed, my friend, you can still succeed
I know exactly what you need
A way to learn with relative ease
A bit more modern, if you please
How ‘bout a couple of mP3’s
You can listen to Jack and the way that he reaches
The students he works with, the system he teaches
And learn how to make spectacular speeches
One of these choices should be ideal
I know how you feel, but let’s be real
This is your time, and oh, such a deal...
A personal & pathetic poetic pitch from Jack

• THE SOUL OF SPEAKING
Tools and techniques to learn how to connect and communicate your ideas
effectively and deliver your presentations with confidence
When it comes to speaking and performance, the audience may say they want information, data, and entertainment and overtly they do. But what they're really after is an exchange. They want inspiration, and they can't get it unless you're inspired. More to the point you won't be inspired unless you're available to the audience's energy.
Jack calls this COMMUNION.
The Soul of Speaking will teach you how to relax into the present moment,
embrace the audience and its energy and take us on a memorable ride.
• ONCE UPON A TIME: STORYTELLING
Spice up your presentations through storytelling
The art of storytelling is a necessary part of successful speaking (whether keynote or training).
People learn easier if they can visualize your idea. The ability to visualize a concept or idea enables the listener
to see what is being said as well as hear it, and the subject matter then comes to life for them.
Storytelling has been used for centuries to pass on information. And using stories to illustrate and emphasize points today is still the best way to create picture images that help your audience comprehend and retain your message.
• MESMERIZE YOUR AUDIENCE
About openings, closings, humor and involvement -- which is about energy, excitement and heart-felt emotion
Mesmerize Your Audience is about connecting with your audience -- getting them on the "Us Bus" --
and then surprising them, taking them on the ride of their lives. You’ll learn the formula for retention and dynamic audience involvement...how to hook your audience with an engaging opening...how to use the magical power of humor to connect with the audience...how to use sharings, processess and exercises to enhance audience participation...and how to motivate, stimulate and move your audience with an effective and memorable close.
SPEAKER SUMMIT mp3’s
These mp3s that were recorded from various Speaker Summits. They’re not as long as the 3 Workshop mp3s.
Jack’s cheeky, mischievous presentation, called Four-Play, pulls back the covers
and reveals the four essentials that must be present if the audience is going to have
the blood-rushing, toe-curling, experience that they deserve.
(He calls these four conditions the Fun-damentals, because
"if you're not having a good time out there speaking,
you're definitely in the wrong business.")
• THE MAGIC OF SPEAKING IS INVISIBLE
You can have all the outside stuff together, you can be command-branded, media-trained, slickly structured;
have well-designed, colorful One-Sheets, possess a commanding voice, connect like peanut butter and jelly,
and look like Dr. McDreamy…but if you're not truly cozy surfing the present moment, results are compromised.
It's all about the present moment. That's where the promise of speaking and presentation is brilliantly delivered.
• STRUCTURE AND BRANDING
An ecstatic audience experience should be structured in the way the audience best absorbs it.
Instead, we speakers often give too much information and not nearly enough engagement.
Good branding is a shortcut for your various audiences. It helps them see not just what is unique
about you and your message, it provides a consistent and vital window into the heart of your matter.
Good branding — Command-Branding — is not just what you call what you do, but the
compelling conversation that follows and the convincing dialogue that follows the compelling conversation.
