129 Seminar Speaking Success Tips is comprised of 129 tips. Each tip is based on David R. Portney’s real-world experience doing literally thousands of seminars, classes, trainings, workshops, keynote speeches, presentations, and public speaking engagements for the last 26 years.
These tips are not in any special order or sequence—and that’s on purpose. You can open up to any page at random to ﬁnd a tip you can use in the real world starting right now. The first tip listed is not ﬁrst because it’s meant to be read ﬁrst, nor is the last tip meant to be read last. You can treat this book like “a box of chocolates” and just open to any page and be surprised and delighted by what you ﬁnd.
Taken altogether, this collection of tips comprises a serious body of knowledge and experience that you can put to practical use in the real world starting right away. This is not a theoretical work, nor is it a compilation of other works. You’ll ﬁnd that this book stands unique as compared to other works on the topic.
- You’ll ﬁnd tips that help you to conquer stage fright.
- You’ll ﬁnd tips that help you to overcome fear of public speaking.
- You’ll ﬁnd plenty of terriﬁc tips on how to find bookings and speaking engagements.
- You’ll ﬁnd tips on how to handle questions, tips on how to structure a ﬂowing and ﬂawless presentation, and tips on expert presentation skills.
Taken as a whole, this book allows you to conquer stage fright, know how to organize any kind of seminar or group event, and become a master of seminar speaking.
“I’m a beginner at public speaking and seminars, but sometimes I have to speak to groups as part of my job (insurance). What I like about 129 Seminar Speaking Success Tips is that each tip is short and to the point and gives me a powerful strategy or technique that I can start using right away. I can’t find any fluff or filler like in some other books I’ve seen on the topic. I like to open up to any page at random and read that tip and then implement that one specific tip. That keeps me from going into “information overload” and keeps me focused on just one thing at a time. Using this book I’m sure I can build up my public speaking and seminar skills in a fun and easy way. To me, this isn’t just another book you read and then put up on a shelf and say “nice book”, this is a book you can really use.”
—Kevin M. Durkin

That’s why I loved this book: It was quick and to the point! I would highly recommend this book to anyone – whether a beginner or expert! Two thumbs up for “129 Seminar Speaking Success Tips”! Well done!”
—Nancy E. Partington
“I’ve been doing seminars for over 10 years and many of these tips are exactly what I have experienced. The great thing about this book is that it contains strategies that I’ve never thought of or used before.”
Why You Should Read 129 Seminar Speaking Success Tips
If you’re not doing seminars or some kind of public speaking, then you’re just throwing away money. If you are doing some form of speaking, I can guarantee you’re making mistakes that are costing you a lot of money and keeping you from earning what you’re really worth.
Let’s put it this way: You are throwing money away because you’re not doing seminar speaking right — or at all.
Either way, you’re lucky you have this book right now because these proven, real-world tips and techniques are going to save you a lot of money — and make you a lot of money.
In this book, I like to use the generic term “seminar speaking” when I talk about any kind of public speaking. I use the term “seminar speaking” to include any time you speak to a group of people. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an actual seminar, a workshop, or a meeting. It doesn’t matter if it’s a class, a boot camp, or training. It doesn’t matter if it’s a conference, a charity fund raising event, or a political dinner. I don’t care if it’s a wedding speech, a keynote speech, or a presentation to the board of directors or a group of sales prospects. If there are people there and you’re speaking to them as a group, you are doing what I call Seminar Speaking.
If you’ve never done seminar speaking of any kind before, you’re going to ﬁnd a treasure chest full of tips, tools, and techniques here. Each tip, tool, and technique has been road-tested in the real world and proven effective — and can be put to use immediately.
If you have done some seminar speaking before, you’re going to ﬁnd some missing pieces in what you’ve been doing (or not doing) that will take your skill, ability, and effectiveness to a whole new level of success.
Finally, if you’re a seasoned pro, you’re going to be able to take these tips and put a ﬁne shine — a high-polish — on what you’re doing.
