Do you have a public speaking opportunity on the horizon? 

With COVID somewhat weakening (fingers crossed!), summits and conferences are starting to happen in person. If you are able to secure a speaking opportunity, how do you prepare for it? In this episode, I am breaking down my process for how I prep for a speech with confidence and hope it can help you do the same!

I recently went out to Arizona to speak at a leadership conference on the very last day, on a topic that I've become pretty accustomed to speaking on, which is vision. I've spoken in front of over 10,000 people and in rooms as small as 10 people, but this particular talk was the one I'd been dreaming about giving, industry leaders all in one place. Before I took the stage for one of the most elite audiences I've spoken in front of, I started to realize that I had a process I utilized to prepare for my speeches.

Today, I'm sharing what that actual process was. What did I do to write it and practice it, how often did I go through it, what did I do to physically prepare to be on stage, what did I do to emotionally and mentally prepare for this speech? I'm walking you through my personal strategy to deliver a speech with confidence.
