Who's ready to jump into Chapter 5 of the SPEAK With Confidence podcast series?! Did you already finish Chapter 1: Brainstorming Like a Boss, Chapter 2: Just Be Yourself (but better), Chapter 3: Organize Your Talk (for maximum impact) and Chapter 4: Getting It Together (just don’t get too attached)? (Go listen if you haven't before you jump in here.)
For week 5, we’re finally jumping into Module 2: Delivering your talk.
DELIVER YOUR TALK: Memorizing
THIS EPISODE SIMPLIFIED: Once your talk is written out, you can break it down into easy-to-remember steps that will make sure you never forget where you are – even if you go off on a tangent.
Let’s jump into Chapter 5: Memorizing (without memorizing). One of the scariest thing about being a public speaker comes after you’ve brainstormed your big idea, figured out your dictionary, created a beautiful outline and wrote out a fantastic talk – it's memorizing! If you’re freaking out about remembering a 45-minute keynote – don’t. I have a simple method that you can use for everything from your short demo video to a full day workshop.
This simple method includes a 20 Points breakdown along with a Take 5 breakdown to get you to remember the basics – because you already know your content. Memorizing isn't memorizing if you already know what you're going to say – so let's hack the system and make sure you know what you're going to say next without sounding like a robot.
We even go through everything “demo video” – why you should have one, how to get one, and how the hunt for creating a great demo video for my speaking career led to building SPEAK With Confidence.

Since this is also the episode of #alltheshoutouts – I’ll let you meet all the fantastic people that have helped make SPEAK With Confidence what it is.
Patrick Frank of Patchbay Media and his team have been a part of the process from the start. They’ve made all the fantastic videos in the course and make the demo videos from our yearly live event.
Dan Russell is an amazing neuromarketer, founder of Speaking of Brilliance, my boyfriend, and has been essential to developing the online portion of SPEAK With Confidence.
Lisa Hoover is the ah-mazing designer behind my personal brand. She’s worked with companies huge and small and is absolutely incredible at what she does. If you like my brand, she's the reason.
Mindy Black is an Air Force Intelligence Briefer, all-around incredible woman, and the one of the best storytellers I’ve ever met. She also has a special magic for helping others share their story.
Sarai Johnson is a best-selling author, sought-after speaker and creatrix coach. She lives boldly and is amazing at getting people to share those tough, but important stories.
Gisell Paula is the helpful human who keeps everything moving (and is NOT for hire!)
