Most rehearsed ​speech ever

Lake McDonald Lodge
Hoping to speak in Glacier National Park in the near future. Lake McDonald Lodge pictured above.

Most rehearsed speech since 1999? Tomorrow’s Leadership keynote.

Why?

Experimenting with doing more in less time. Same speaking client as last year, but with 60 minutes less time. To convey the same message with less will require a great level of precision.

Perhaps after speaking for 20 years, i’ve finally learned how to rehearse. It sure feels like it. And it feels good. Better late than never.

Make it fun even if it’s foreign to you

Disney Leadership Keynote Speaker jeff noel
Jack the bear is a road warrior, and he gets a lot of practice.

 

Anyone who’s great at what they do makes it look easy.

But it ain’t easy.

Practicing was much easier in real time at Disney. When you work for Disney Institute as a professional speaker, you speak nearly every day.

When you are a solo entrepreneur, your speaking engagements are farther apart. The only way to practice then is to do it over and over again without an audience.

So that’s what i’m doing.

Morning, noon and night.

Day in, day out.

Fun.
