What's the one thing that makes my presentations or workshops a success?

The single biggest factor that determines the success of my presentations/workshops? ๐—ง๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜.

Iโ€™m at my best when Iโ€™m given the creative freedom to craft my content in the way I think will be most effective.

That means finding ways to connect with my audience that you wonโ€™t get with other presenters. Not a criticism of them; itโ€™s just that Iโ€™ll do things my way.

I never give the exact same presentation twice.

Chances are, Iโ€™ll suddenly be inspired by something in the hours โ€” maybe even minutes โ€” before I go on stage that will require me to make last-minute changes. It might be one slide, or it might be a whole new section.

That takes a lot more effort than just repeatedly rolling out a pre-packaged presentation. But itโ€™s far more impactful.

What I do isnโ€™t for everyone.

It requires my clients to trust that Iโ€™ll deliver and not want to see or approve content in advance.

I canโ€™t expect them to do that if they donโ€™t know what I can do.

Which is one of the reasons I post so much content on social media. What you see here is indicative of what you get when you hire me. Thereโ€™s no difference between LinkedIn me and โ€˜on stageโ€™ me.ย 

If you donโ€™t like whatโ€™s here or you want something entirely predictable, please donโ€™t hire me.

But if you do, then know that the same creative passion and processes that go into preparing ๐˜ฎ๐˜บ social media content will be deployed in preparing ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ presentation.ย 

Iโ€™ll also make certain that, well before I begin crafting my content, I understand why youโ€™ve hired me and exactly what impact you want me to have on your audience.

And then I need your trust.ย 


Oh, and if you're wondering what the image represents? While it's not a very good representation of the way I like to present, I thought it was important to live up to the values I'm espousing by putting my trust in ChatGPT as an illustrator.
