Beyond the Basics

Applying the Zen Speaker System (Level 2)

This is for those who have taken The Zen Speaker - Beyond the Expected course. In that course, you learned to no longer begin your speeches with pleasantries, and instead have compelling openings to engage your audience immediately. You learned to incorporate stories into all your communications and do so now because you know it’s the best way to connect with your audiences of one or one thousand people. And you learned to make it about the audience.

You are now more relaxed when you speak than you were before the course. And, hopefully, you remember to use the “hissing” breathing exercise to calm your nerves and focus your energy.

So now what? Isn’t that enough to know about public speaking and communication? No! You’re better than you were and now you’re ready to go Beyond the Basics! Don’t worry if you forgot some of the above-mentioned techniques; we’ll do a review of those basics and then go zooming beyond them!


What’s the same about Beyond the Basics:

  • The environment will be safe and respectful

  • Sessions are once a month for 4 months; I pick the first date (FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2020 is the next one), and when we’re together as a group, we choose the following three dates so everyone has input

  • Classes are from 8:30 am - noon

  • Class is limited to 10 people

What’s different about Beyond the Basics:

  • You’ll get specific, in-the-moment coaching on your practice presentations

  • You’ll learn, from an expert voice coach, vocal variety and voice exercises you can use daily

  • You’ll gain more empathy through improvisation techniques; empathy connects you with whomever you are communicating

  • You’ll experience 1-minute exercises that will crush that anxiety you still sometimes have when you’re in front of an audience


What do you need to do to make sure you don’t miss out on Beyond the Podium and go from a less nervous, competent speaker to a Calm, Confident and Compelling speaker:

  • Clear your calendar for the morning of Friday, February 21, 2020—you can do it!

  • Reserve your seat using the link below. Payments must be made by Friday, February 14, 2020.

  • Exhale and know that in 2020, you will no longer dread giving presentations or speaking in any situation; you will look forward to it! You might even seek out opportunities to speak!




Buckle up! We’re going Beyond the Basics!
