The King’s Speech is the
story of Bertie, the man
who reluctantly assumed
the throne and became
King George VI,




                           and Lionel Logue, the
                           speech therapist who
                           helped the unsure monarch
                           become worthy of it.
The film opens as the Prince prepares to speak before a
crowd at Wembley Stadium. He struggles with his
stammer in front of thousands of listeners and is
considered by himself to be unfit to be the future King.

A familiar scene to anyone who has ever
been called on to present for the first time.

its wide acclaim, it is also filled with useful
reminders of the struggles one can face to
communicate clearly.

                Here are 5 presentation lessons
                we can learn from the film.
1.   HAVE FAITH
     IN YOUR VOICE
As a child Bertie was teased and ignored by
the powerful men in his family. His stammer only
became worse as he believed he didn’t have a voice.
At first many presenters struggle to get their words out.

Just as the throne was thrust upon Bertie you too
will have your moment to step up.
At first many presenters struggle to get their words out.

Just as the throne was thrust upon Bertie you too
will have your moment to step up.

The question is: will you have faith in yourself
and in what you are saying?
2.   ADMIT YOU
     NEED HELP
Bertie was willing to admit he had a problem.

His success was largely due to one man:
a self-taught Australian speech therapist.

He could have been consumed by his ego, but instead
was open to the support of his wife Elizabeth and to
being coached by Lionel who helped him conquer his
speech impediment, turning him into a great monarch.
We are all flawed.

No one can become a great presenter by
themselves. One needs to let go of their ego,
reach out, and be open to feedback.

You’re only as great as the people you surround
yourself with.

Find your own Lionel and Elizabeth.
3.   PUT THE
     HOURS IN
At first Bertie was convinced
his stammer couldn’t be fixed.

It wasn’t until he let go of his
ego and was willing to accept
the exercises from Lionel that
he was able to change.
There’s no substitute for hard work.
There’s no substitute for hard work.

You have to roll up your sleeves and put the hours
in to get to where you want to be, even if you’re
the King of England.
4.   BECOME AN EXPERT
     FROM EXPERIENCE
Lionel believed that getting to the
heart of his psychological problem
could help cure the King.
He knew this, not from his academic credentials (he had
none), but rather from the methods he studied and applied
based on what he found worked for over 30 years.

His experience made him an expert.
5.   BROADCAST A
     TRUE VERSION
     OF YOURSELF
Bertie was not only required to speak to England,
but to the 58 countries in the Commonwealth.
Bertie was not only required to speak to England,
but to the 58 countries in the Commonwealth.
The advent of live radio meant that he couldn’t be
bailed out with his remarks being recorded and
edited as in previous years.
King George VI was loved by his people because
his stammer humanized him.

He was a hero because of his imperfections.

Be genuine and don’t be afraid of your flaws,
they are what make you human.
The King’s Speech is an inspiring film worthy
of the Oscar buzz it is receiving.

Just as you will have your own presentation
struggles there will be people along the way
to help you through the hard work.
With this experience you too will find your own voice.
Thank you.

  • 5. The film opens as the Prince prepares to speak before a crowd at Wembley Stadium.

  • 8. Not only is the film worthy of seeing because of its wide acclaim, it is also filled with useful reminders of the struggles one can face to communicate clearly. 7 Golden Globe nominations ( 1 win for Best Performance) 12 Oscar nominations Here are 5 presentation lessons we can learn from the film.
  • 9. 1. HAVE FAITH IN YOUR VOICE
  • 10. As a child Bertie was teased and ignored by the powerful men in his family. His stammer only became worse as he believed he didn’t have a voice.
  • 11. At first many presenters struggle to get their words out. Just as the throne was thrust upon Bertie you too will have your moment to step up.
  • 12. At first many presenters struggle to get their words out. Just as the throne was thrust upon Bertie you too will have your moment to step up. The question is: will you have faith in yourself and in what you are saying?
  • 13. 2. ADMIT YOU NEED HELP
  • 14. Bertie was willing to admit he had a problem. His success was largely due to one man: a self-taught Australian speech therapist. He could have been consumed by his ego, but instead was open to the support of his wife Elizabeth and to being coached by Lionel who helped him conquer his speech impediment, turning him into a great monarch.
  • 15. We are all flawed. No one can become a great presenter by themselves. One needs to let go of their ego, reach out, and be open to feedback. You’re only as great as the people you surround yourself with. Find your own Lionel and Elizabeth.
  • 16. 3. PUT THE HOURS IN
  • 17. At first Bertie was convinced his stammer couldn’t be fixed. It wasn’t until he let go of his ego and was willing to accept the exercises from Lionel that he was able to change.
  • 18. There’s no substitute for hard work.
  • 19. There’s no substitute for hard work. You have to roll up your sleeves and put the hours in to get to where you want to be, even if you’re the King of England.
  • 20. 4. BECOME AN EXPERT FROM EXPERIENCE
  • 21. Lionel believed that getting to the heart of his psychological problem could help cure the King.
  • 22. He knew this, not from his academic credentials (he had none), but rather from the methods he studied and applied based on what he found worked for over 30 years. His experience made him an expert.
  • 23. 5. BROADCAST A TRUE VERSION OF YOURSELF
  • 24. Bertie was not only required to speak to England, but to the 58 countries in the Commonwealth.
  • 25. Bertie was not only required to speak to England, but to the 58 countries in the Commonwealth. The advent of live radio meant that he couldn’t be bailed out with his remarks being recorded and edited as in previous years.
  • 26. King George VI was loved by his people because his stammer humanized him. He was a hero because of his imperfections. Be genuine and don’t be afraid of your flaws, they are what make you human.
  • 27.
  • 28. The King’s Speech is an inspiring film worthy of the Oscar buzz it is receiving. Just as you will have your own presentation struggles there will be people along the way to help you through the hard work.
  • 29. With this experience you too will find your own voice.
