Publisher's Summary

How to write truly compelling presentations and deliver them like a champ! From two-time world champion of public speaking finalist Rory Vaden.

Imagine coming offstage to thousands of fans cheering at the top of their lungs while they give you a thunderous standing ovation. Picture a lifestyle where you regularly meet the most influential people in the world and you network with some of the wealthiest people on the planet.

Imagine performing in front of all different types of audiences in numerous cities around the country or even the world. You'll be changing people's lives as you inspire and motivate them with meaningful solutions that you have for their lives or their businesses. Picture sitting at a table with your Sharpie in hand as a massive line forms, wrapping back and forth as people wait anxiously just for the chance to meet you and get your autograph. Most of all consider the fulfillment and true joy that you will experience when you hear back from people who have made tremendous progress in their lives based on what you taught them! That is the life of a champion presenter!

If you are ready to turn your message into money, your hope into happiness, and your dream into dollars then this is exactly what you are looking for. It's like nothing that has ever been created before.

This audiobook includes all of the real, honest secrets that Rory used to become one of the fastest rising speakers in the world in just a few short years. This is not just the basics of how to tell a story, what to do to write a speech, or how to use simple gestures. This is industrial-strength mastery level advanced mechanics for how to make audiences erupt with laughter and explode with applause. The only way you'll ever reach your maximum potential as a speaker is to become absolutely dynamic onstage - this shows you how.

Much of the information contained here has never been shared outside of Rory's immediate circle of speaker friends. It is the equivalent of a magician exposing every one of his tricks. The primary reason Rory created this content was for training his own team of speakers at Southwestern Consulting. But we followed him around with a microphone as he was letting his business partners in on these highly personal secrets and strategies. Rory is arguably one of the most compelling presenters on the planet. At 24 years old, he was the youngest person in history to make it to the World Championship of Public Speaking - twice! By age 27 he had built a multimillion-dollar speaking and training company and created six different books and was keynoting for companies like Morgan Stanley-Smith Barney, Bank of America, Trane, McGladrey, and HCA. He has been one of the fastest speakers in history to gain international notoriety. As you will learn, all of this can happen for you once you understand the techniques of being magnificent on the platform!

Lots of Takeaways

The only reason I can't give 5 stars is it's a little unorganized (which is ironic being that it's about presentations), the sound wasn't always great and there are a lot of references to slides from the workshops they did.

There are lots of great takeaways here, Rory obviously knows what he is talking about and is passionate.
It starts off with him doing a class on comedy, so not having slides and I couldn't always hear what the people were saying made it hard to follow at times.
It goes from comedy, to sales, to presentations, to sales, more comedy and then again to presentations.

Get your notebook out while you listen, because he goes over a ton of valuable lists and acronyms.
Definitely worth the listen, although I wish there was a PDF to Accompany.

Boring and unorganized

I had to return it as it seemed unprepared and unorganized to me, couldn't continue more than 2 chapters, wouldn't recommend it if you like serious planned presentation.

Excellent for all levels

As you would expect Vaden is a fantastic presenter and any public speaker would gain valuable guidance from this book, regardless of experience level. In particular he deconstructs humour and how to work this into any speech. Highly recommended.
