Nine Hacks Guaranteed
to make your next
SPEECHWORLD CLASS
Congratulations!
You’ve been asked to
speak on the main
stage.
Now fear sets in.
“What if no one
cares what I have
to say?”
“What if I bomb?”
“But I’m not funny!”
“Aaaaarg!”
Here’s the good news…
To deliver a world class speech, you
don’t have to be famous, brilliant

(or even funny).
But you do have to be good.
Here are 9 ways
to make your
next speech
world class.
#1 Nail the Timing
Avoid the mistake of
starting too slow and
ending too fast.
- story (get their attention, build
rapport),

- problem (what are you here to
solve?),

- promise (what can they
expect?)...
- deliver 3-5 solutions with
a story for each one.
50% for content
Use this timing formula:
- summary, call-to-action,
closing story
15% for the close
Use this timing formula:
#2 Start with a Story
Skip the I’m-so-glad-to-be-here
self-serving babble and jump right
into a story.
A well-told story will always
knock the socks off a
poorly told story about, say
winning an Olympic medal.
#3 Use Fewer Slides
Your slides are NOT the
message - they should ADD
to your message

(not make it worse)
• no more than 1 slide every 2 minutes

• no more than 4 bullets per slide

• no more than 8 words per bullet*
My formula ...
#4 Do the Boogie
Every 10-12 minutes get your
audience moving.
They will learn more,
remember more

(and recommend you more)
#5 Be Funny
Question: “Do you
have to be funny in
your speech?”
Answer: “Only if
you want to get
invited back.”
Question: “Do you
have to be funny in
your speech?”
Instead of trying to
be funny, watch for
funny or surprising
moments (kids,
dog, neighbours, or
shopping) in
everyday life.

#6 Get Social Proof
Here’s a secret to getting
booked to speak more: 

Get audience feedback
during your speech.
About halfway, I always ask:

“Are you enjoying this and is it valuable?”
The applause
I get is called
Social Proof
(now they ALL agree
this is world class)
#7 Connect with the Audience
People learn from people
they connect with.
This is true in management,
sales, love and your next
presentation.
4 ways to connect with your audience:

• wear clothes similar but slightly better than your audience,

• use words they un...
#8 Deliver less Content, Better
Avoid doing a ‘brain dump’ on
your audience—you’ll look like
an amateur and they’ll forget it.
Instead, deliver less content, better:

• remove content that doesn’t reinforce your main points,

• anchor every lesson t...
