Sharing in the excitement of our student’s success is such a privilege for our team at The Speaker Lab. Our Director of Student Success, Maryalice Goldsmith, is taking the mic for our Student Highlight series so you can hear more about our students’ experiences and what they want you to know about growing your speaking business.
Chris Failla has got an awesome story to share and you’re sure to leave this episode feeling inspired and encouraged to take the next big step in your own career. He’s full of heart and has a really unique narrative to share about what has inspired him to take the stage. Chris and Maryalice talk about finding your “deeper why” and how to use your message to make an impact.
During this conversation, Chris unpacks his process, how he came to find The Speaker Lab, and how this investment in his business and himself brought him to stages he never could have imagined. Chris is motivated by the desire to help others love their work for the long haul and have a sustainable impact on a human level. He’s the real deal, and he’s here to share!
If you’re ready to hear a life-changing, vision-defining story of gratitude, then you’re in the right place.
John Israel is a friend and entrepreneur-turned-speaker who has redefined success in his unique niche of the industry. After serving for nearly a decade as the leader of a strategic gifting company, John found himself with a message of gratitude that holds the power to impact client and employee attrition.
In this episode he’s sharing his journey to defining the problem he solves and the vision he’s committed to living out. He unpacks the social experiment that changed his life and why it’s important to find your right audience and then teach them (rather than sell to them)! John also talks about why free events are the way to start and how strategic marketing and a willingness to pivot are essential in this industry.
The one and only Geoff Woods joined us for Episode 376 to explain what “the one thing” is and why you need to find it to achieve your goals.
Passionate about how small things make a big difference and why world-class content is a must, Geoff’s approach to productivity and building a business is contagious.
Not only will this episode help you begin your journey to finding “the one thing,” but you’ll also get to hear more about Geoff’s road to becoming co-founder and president of the organization, The One Thing.
How did he get started? By asking a simple question, “How might I be able to help?” And the rest is history! If you’re looking for the one thing that will reignite your “why” and lead you into the future, then this episode is a must!
So how do you find your inner performer?
Our lead coach, Rick Clemons, is the expert on helping others find where their star shines the brightest, and how to take delivery and content to the next level.
Rick takes a deep dive into what speakers should be doing to bring their craft to life while balancing the value of performance vs. being in the moment with your audience. He shares a few of his own first-hand experiences on the stage and how he’s relied on strong fundamentals and creativity to adjust his stagecraft for each audience.
What’s exciting is that Rick will also share about a special cohort we will be launching SOON here at The Speaker Lab.
Through live virtual sessions, Rick will be working with students to develop everything from volume, cadence, receiving constructive feedback, and navigating the technical things that make all the difference.
If you’re excited about what you heard in today’s episode and interested in learning more about our stagecraft cohort, visit thespeakerlab.com/stagecraft to schedule a call with one of our enrollment advisors. Rick is an amazing coach and he’s planned an incredible experience for our students - we hope you’ll join us!
