Episode 136: How to Conquer the Stage, Engage Your Audience & Connect with Your One Person

Apr 17, 2023

What do you think of when you hear the phrase “charismatic speaker”? Do you picture someone who is engaging and people naturally want to be around? Are they almost magnetic in the way they present themselves? You know the type of speaker I’m talking about, and I’m sure you can name a few. There are two main keys for building this type of stage presence and charisma, and in this episode, I start from the very beginning for how to do so.

In this part two of three, I’ll be talking about growing your confidence as a speaker and owning the stage.

Highlights from this episode include:

  • Becoming a confident and charismatic speaker
  • How charisma comes across on the stage
  • The first thing to do when you step on the stage
  • The importance of grounding yourself
  • Some dos and don’ts

Do you know what I want for you? I want YOU to become a confident, charismatic speaker that people can’t wait to book. And creating warmth from the stage is just one way to become that magnetic speaker who connects with the audience so well –– and more importantly, glorifies God. My question is, do you want that for yourself, too?
