You can achieve this in The Empowered Speaker Master Class.

As you learn the tools and steps to public speaking success from an expert trainer and practice real time in a small group, your confidence will increase, and your fear will diminish.




What is the difference between The Empowered Speaker Master Class and Toastmasters?


Toastmasters International is an organization that teaches leadership and public speaking skills via peer coaching and feedback. Unlike Toastmasters, The Empowered Speaker Master Class speaker development program gives you direct access, coaching and feedback by an expert Certified Instructor and Tedx Speaker who has been paid to train Corporations and individuals over the last 14 years.




Am I a good fit for The Empowered Speaker Master Class?


If you are ready: To move beyond your fear of public speaking To advance in your career To be seen as confident and capable To be more influential To be seen as a thought leader in your industry To be heard …then you are a good fit for The Empowered Speaker Master Class!




Do I need prior public speaking or presentation skills training to enroll?


No. During The Empowered Speaker Master Class, you will receive training and instruction based on the proprietary SpeakersTrainingCampâ bootcamp program. The SpeakersTrainingCamp® is an expert, hands-on training that will prepare you to become a more confident and dynamic public speaker, no matter your public speaking experience or level.




Will I have the opportunity to speak, practice, and receive coaching at each meeting?


Yes. By design, each Master Class will have a maximum of 8 participants. Each session, up to 4 speakers will have the opportunity to present a 3-5- minute live presentation for coaching and feedback. The remaining participants will practice extemporaneous and impromptu speaking, developing confidence in organizing thoughts, sharing, and responding without preparation...a crucial skill!




Will I be learning public speaking and presentation techniques from Christy, or just practicing in this group?


The Empowered Speaker Master Class offers you the best of both worlds! You will receive direct coaching and feedback from Christy, feedback from your small group peers, and practice live in this group.




Do you provide topics for us to speak on, or do I decide?


The topic for your 3-5-minute presentations is your choice!




What if I need to practice a speech that is longer than 3-5 minutes?


I firmly believe if you can deliver a shorter speech with excellence, you can easily expand to the longer version. However, in those situations when you want feedback on a longer presentation, you will have the opportunity to either upload a recorded version of the longer presentation for small group feedback outside of the sessions.




Can I just listen during the sessions?


How you choose to develop is ultimately up to you. However, I would recommend you leverage the opportunity to receive live coaching and feedback. Whether you have an upcoming business presentation, an upcoming sales pitch, a Ted Talk, a bible study...whatever...this is a great opportunity to gather input on your content and your delivery, in a supportive environment.




When are meetings held?


Once you register, you will have the ability to sign up for the group time and date that works best for your schedule. For multiple Master Classes (groups of 8), additional times will be scheduled.




How long is each session?


Each session is 2 hours long, 1x per month.




How often are the sessions?


Sessions will be held once per month for 2 hours. This frequency allows each participant in a group the opportunity to practice and receive coaching and feedback on both formal presentations and extemporaneous speaking each month.




Why is a Master Class format better than 1:1 training or courses?


There are some benefits to different types of public speaking and presentation skills training. The benefit of the Master Class format is ongoing access to your own "personal" expert coach to help you achieve your level of success as a confident communicator. While other training options are "one and done," The Empowered Speaker Master Class gives you coaching, community and curriculum, all in one place.
