Maybe It Wasn’t Public Speaking That Got You Here…

But it will be your public speaking that will take you to the next level.

Most leaders advance their career through a variety of skills and competencies but public speaking is seldom one of them. If, for example, you lead an engineering firm chances are it’s because you are a great engineer. If you had a killer idea that launched your business, more than likely you’re a creative or pioneering leader.

How do you hone that craft?

To Lead At The Next Level…

You have to acquire a new skill: how to speak effectively, authentically, and in a way that advances the company forward.

Whether you’re a CEO presenting to a venture capital firm, an entire sales force pitching new clients, prepping for a press conference, or you’re speaking at a trade show, LBC works with you to craft, hone, and deliver a message that inspires, provokes, and mobilizes people to action.

Core Areas of Focus

We’ve developed a comprehensive ten step system that’s designed around three main areas of emphasis:

  • Dedicated Messenger: how will your audience come to trust that you know who you are, where you are taking them, and mobilize for action?
  • Disruptive Message: what can you not NOT say— that truth so deep in you that it launches a thousand ships, moves others to action, and could even change the world?
  • Deft Methods: how can you eliminate every distraction, create an echo, stick your landing, and offer your full presence?
