Don’t be a dummy, learn how to speak in public

Are you tired of people manipulating you like a puppet? Putting words in your mouth just because they have the courage to stand up and speak?

Do you get intimated and tense up when you speak in front of a group sounding like a stiff dummy?

Isn’t it time you got over your fears of public speaking and regained your confidence?

Most people fear public speaking more than death itself, yet it’s not all that hard – you just need to know the tricks of the trade.

Watch this funny YouTube video I had recorded by a ventriloquist, just to make the point.

Don’t be a dummy – register now for the next Corporate Rockstar event.

One of the concepts I will be covering at the Become The Next Corporate Rockstar event is how you can create a persona that is persuasive and engaging.

Mine is “Exponential / Different / Fun” yet focused on producing RESULTS.

This YouTube video is an example of that persona. I came across someone who could do the video on the Internet. I ordered it, posted it up on YouTube and I am now blogging about it.

All with the intent of trying to get the message to you that you shouldn’t be or feel like a dummy just because you’re intimated or scared by public speaking.

The ability to present, persuade and influence is one of the most powerful skills you can develop – especially if you’re a professional or corporate executive.

The top jobs, promotions and pay rises are allocated to those who stand out and stand up. It might not seem fair, but it actually is.

Sitting in your seat, you can only provide or create the value that you can produce.

When you stand up in front of others, you can move mountains and that is MUCH MORE VALUABLE.

Australian engineer in the running for another award!

Ray Keefe of Successful Endeavours is up for yet another business award! Competition is they but we are already on the short list.  Here are the statistics:  15,000 businesses are invited to apply, only 83 do.  So they aren’t competing with 15,000 other businesses, just 83.  Of course those 83 are of a better mindset because they are there. That’s why an Exponential Mindset makes success easier and easier BECAUSE there are less and less people competing with you as you get better!

Successful Endeavours was recently featured in the Casey in Business magazine which goes out to 4,500 businesses in Casey.  Even though there are 15,000 registered businesses in Casey and they all get contacted by the Casey Business Development office and encouraged to sign up for free support and information services, less than a third actually do it.  I think you’ll agree this is GREAT exposure – especially when it’s a FULL PAGE AD!

Of course Ray is a multi-award winning Exponential Marketing Enthusiast, Exponential Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winner… So he knows he’s going to request a full page reprint that he can then send to all his existing clients, prospects and suspects. For those ‘top’ clients, he’s going to request actual magazines for the ADDED VALUE IMPACT… With a post-it note sticking out of the page where his ad is, with another post-it note on the cover…

Totally exponential which doesn’t just win you business awards, it wins you NEW BUSINESS!

Australian Engineering Week 2010

Today is the start of Australian Engineering Week 2010. As an engineer, Engineering Week brings back a lot of memories, most of them fuzzy for some reason…

Anyway, I thought I would remind you of it since Engineering Education Australia is a graduate of our Business Mastery Platinum Program.

I especially like “Make it so” as their slogan – a tribute to Star Trek and the fact that engineers “make it so”.

Plus I like it because it rhymes with my name – Make it so Dr Dussault!

Unleash The Speaker Within Was Frickin’ Amazing

I tell people all the time that the Law Of Attraction works in mysterious ways, attracting the positive things you need just when you need them. This photo was taken by David Conroy, The Lone Drainer And Pronto!, Sydney’s Premier Plumber – it’s not my vehicle, but the plate might as well be!
