On this episode, my guest is Grant Baldwin, who returns to The Productivityist Podcast. Grant is a speaker, blogger, podcaster, and founder of The Speaker Lab – where he helps people (specifically speakers) become more effective in their craft. We spoke about the processes in planning and delivering an effective talk.
Grant expounded on the logistical needs prior to a speaking event, the mental process of writing a manuscript, and the importance of rehearsing. This is not just a podcast meant for professional speakers as we discuss points and ideas that may also be used by anyone who might have fear of speaking, or is preparing for a presentation or public speaking of any kind.
In this podcast episode, you’ll learn about:
- The process of building talks as Grant sees it; from logistical preparation, marketing, selling, sourcing speakers, to the talk itself.
- How Grant constructs a talk and how having a polished template that can be tweaked with slight nuances based on the audience demographic is the most efficient way to go through this.
- The difference in speaking for keynotes vs. a workshop.
- The two questions the audience have in mind, that as a speaker, one must accomplish to answer.
- How rehearsing well is the key to give you liberty to go off the planned manuscript.
- How to be a Productive Speaker with Grant Baldwin
- The Speaker Lab
