Darren LaCroix 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking Darren LaCroix 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking

What’s the fastest way for a speaker to go from good to GREAT? One word: Coaching. Think you can’t be a great speaker? Think again. Darren’s first performance and his championship speech are absolute proof that presenting is a learned skill.

Before becoming the 2001 World Champion out of 25,000 contestants, Darren LaCroix studied ten years worth of World Champion contests over and over again. He discovered what separates the person who wins from the person who comes in second. The winner had three points in common. Want to know what they are?  Earn your way to this event and hear it directly from Darren.

Participants will give 1 to 2 minutes of the opening of a speech and receive instant feedback from a master speaker coach! Objectives: To give you a champion’s perspective on common presenter mistakes, along with techniques and tips that anyone can use to correct them!

You’ll walk out with a coaching checklist and a whole new perspective on speaking. Go from good to GREAT! “Dareenteed”
