EP 34: How To Make Sure Your Talk Delivers Real Value


Have you ever been to an event, conference, workshop or retreat (in person or online) where you expected incredible presentations that lead to actionable steps? Have you ever left feeling like it was such a waste of time because the presenter didn’t deliver valuable or actionable content? Well, I want to help make sure that you aren’t doing that with your presentations! If you want your audience to feel like you really showed up, did the work, served them, and really helped give them results and feel like they got something valuable from you, then this episode is for you! As creative speakers, it is our job to encourage others in the business and give them presentations that deliver real value. And I believe you can do that!

Episode takeaways you don’t want to miss:

  • You have to be willing to put in the prep work. Understand who your audience is, what they need from you, and how you can best serve them through your presentation.

  • What is the message you want your audience to hear? What is the problem you are going to help them solve or the new thing you are going to teach them?

  • Once you’ve mapped out the main teaching points of the content, work the rest of your presentation around them to make sure you are taking your audience on a clear journey from where they are to where they want to be.

  • We are often blind to what is most valuable to others. So, test out your main points on a friend to make sure they make sense and bring value to your talk.
