The bliss point in the food industry is the right mix of sweet, salt, fat, and crunch. The bliss point in the pop music industry is something that’s danceable, memorable, meaningful and melodic. What is the algorithm for business speakers? Does it even exist--the “secret sauce” that can woo an audience? From my start as a speech coach--throughout my journey of ups and downs, a variety of clients, the yin/yang good/bad what I do--my love for eloquence has propelled me to search for the answer. What I’ve found has surprised me. What You'll Learn: Effective communication is important and can be learned over time The first hurdles are usually fear and loathing The real hurdles are the changes we want the audience to make Success is a mysterious mix of things Bio: Sims Wyeth I launched my presentation consulting practice in 1996 to offer clients not just a great training experience but a path to personal and professional growth. Public speaking activitates many parts of us, and tests us on many levels too. I offer my clients a range of 1:1 programs for senior executives, as well as programs for small groups to high potential individuals. Typical executive engagements are six-to-twelve months long, during which I collaborate with the client on speeches and presentations, enabling me to be a real-time coach and sounding board. Group sessions for high potential candidates are usually one-to-three days in length, and occur over a period of weeks or months. Training with follow-up coaching is the most effective approach. In these programs, clients acquire knowledge, skill, and new behaviors that help them sell themsleves, tell stories, structure arguements, prepare messages, and increase their professional stature and personal appeal. I am the author of The Essential of Persuasive Public Speaking, published by W.W. Norton, and I write a weekly column for called Words@Work, which focuses on the subject of persuasive business communication. I live and have my office in Montclair, NJ.
