Top 3 Takeaways From This Value-Packed Conversation

  • The art of conversation is one of the most coveted approaches to success, no matter what industry or space you exist in. When you can have powerful conversations with others and communicate on a powerful level, many pieces of the puzzle will fall into place. Honing this skill set will also impact your audience as a whole, bringing them the transformation they sought when they decided to turn to your guidance. As Peter says, “Don’t speak to inform. Speak to transform.”
  • Preparation plays a critical role in public speaking. If you try to “wing it,” it’s the epitome of disrespect to yourself and your audience. People are investing in you to bring them a result and if you fall short because you didn’t prepare, you cause irreparable damage to your brand and securing future speaking engagements will become much more difficult.
  • Breathing is one of the most important elements to success in any public speaking engagement. Practice breathing techniques prior to your presentations and, of course, breathe naturally during your presentations as well
