[On] Point to Ponder: The “I Nailed It!” Blog Series

I recently finished Steven King’s masterpiece, The Green Mile. He did an interesting experiment when writing it – releasing it as 6 “novelettes,” one at a time. After all 6 parts were in circulation, he sold it as a box set. So I am following King’s Example. (in this case Steven, not Martin Luther)

If you’re a self-starter, have no or low budget, and like to learn on your own, this is an excellent “starter set” as you craft your message. You can apply immediately what you learn in this ‘virtual classroom.”

3 key posts, right here, in one place.

3 posts that go deep on Speaker|Audience|Message.

AKA, the essence of Persuasion.

Below you’ll find the “How to Nail It” Blog Series. Read it one at a time a few days apart, or all three from start to finish.

  1. “When You’re The Speaker
  2. “Bring Your Audience Aboard”
  3. “Building The Message

This series is a summary of the most common coaching feedback I give speakers on how to improve. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, what your specialty or expertise is, what your product does. Persuasion is persuasion. It all starts with the Speaker-Audience-Message triangle. And although context and content may differ between speakers, I provide a lot of the same tips to all of them.

Testimonials

When speaking at the CTL conference this spring, I had the privilege to sit in on Cindy’s Storytelling talk. Cindy has an impressive background, and a wonderful approach to helping you present more effectively. Telling a compelling story is crucial for effective presentations that connect with your audience, and Cindy can equip you to prepare and present in a structured, but seemingly unrehearsed way.

Kristin Sherry, Author|Speaker|Coach

“Cindy, Your coaching was fantastic. You are so good at this. I have done a lot of this too, but I am in awe of your approach, the simplicity of your suggestions and your general professionalism. Thank you.”

Susan Strong, Director at SAGE Boulder

Cindy was selected to present at the Career Thought Leader Conference in Denver. I attended her session and was impressed with her presentation and content marketing expertise. I have been a trainer for over 20 years and her presentation added specific impactful strategies that I will include in my next training. Cindy has a natural engaging style that is persuasive and professional. I would highly recommend working with her if you are looking to increase your business presentations.

Beth Kennedy, Executive Coach

“The On Point ‘Investor Pitch as Story’ online course was a great fit because of my heavy travel schedule. It gave me flexibility as a student to learn and connect with Cindy as necessary. The videos and homework helped me to prepare strong, compelling presentations for potential customers (coaches, directors, school districts) and becoming investor ready.”

Justin Fleming | CEO at MyPerforma

“Cindy, I’m in your Career Thought Leaders Conference session right now and you’re absolutely delivering on what you promised when we first met! I’m so excited to keep making progress in developing my brand story.”
