    Yes! I’m doing a lot more speaking recently, on my channel and in real life. Cant wait to absorb this knowledge. And who better to hear it from than one of the most passionate and energetic sounding speakers around

    edit: This is gold material. Funny thing though… the “Create unique interactions with the audience”, and the audience interacting with each-other goes down so much better in the US. Here in the UK, it kinda makes everyone feel super awkward. We are a reserved bunch. In 99% of cases, If you ask the audience to hug each-other, they’d look at you like “Errrr… really? Do I have to?” haha. Although, perhaps we need more of that to break through our stiff upper lip mentality 😉

      Awesome. Will have to take a look at your channel.

      Agreed with your sentiment here. I have been to a number of conferences where there was more ‘ra ra’ and energy in the UK, where it worked. In the main though, we are more reserved. When I speak I feed off the energy of the audience. If they are quiet then I tailor to their vibe. If they’re vocal and energised I also give more upbeat energy. Is a great feeling when you change someone’s thinking after presenting them something of value and they come up and tell you how they’ll implement what you gave them.

      Nice post. Thanks.

    Got my performance planner Brendan and loving it. I’ve been blessed to give a few guest speeches. Sometimes it can feel like your all alone up there. When you are doing good, the audience is doing good, and you both can feed off each other’s energy. Wishing you all the best.

    I appreciate the video! Thanks for all you do

    Your job is made much easier when the audience are there on their own free will. If it’s their passion, they’re more motivated. If it’s because they ‘have’ to be there because of work, less motivated. Different approaches for your target audience. I love speaking in front of an audience, it really gives me a natural high!

    Thanks for this Brendon. And you and Denise really are an inspirational team!

    This was fascinating, I love the point that to deliver a great speech you have to care for yourself first. This is totally true in all respects, to deliver great value, make sure you’re in peak state yourself.

  9. MotiveVideoBook // 4th March 2019 at 10:16 am // Reply

    “proved by life truths” “enthusiasm over fear” “share your struggle first success second” “interaction with the audience” POWERFUL TIPS!

  10. You nailed it, but this can be applied to becoming more than just a great speaker. Having authentic experience, purpose and a drive to help others makes you an awesome person.

    I love your videos! I am still practicing it – getting better! I am practicing on my channel about Relationship advice for women and I hope it is preparing me to actually serve on stages soon! – great advice as always thank you so much for sharing!

    Great info. Thank you for this. I didn’t know what energy it takes to share energy like you do…

    There are always three speeches for every one you actually gave. The one you practices, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave. The way you overcome shyness is to become so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid. Hi guys! It’s me again 🙂 You might have seen me before but my desire to inspire more people is what keeps me pushing to reach out more. We own a cookie shop business in our college town. When we first started it, we just graduated college and were living in our car with very little direction, just a huge passion to be successful. I started it out of a local bagel shop in their off hours at night with my boyfriend, Bran. It was a crazy experience but it worked! We became a success! And how we have our first storefront location (a second one currently under construction but launching soon!) We started it to fund a year long backpacking trip around the world and to be successful while living the life of our dreams.

  14. It’s been a long time since I have clicked on your video…been busy. Last I saw one was in 2017… You seem tired now. I hope it’s just traveling and nothing else.

    Your excitement and energy really shines through in this video! This is something I’m trying to teach my team members…AUTHENTIC ENERGY AND ENGAGEMENT!!!
