Unearthing Your Unique Message: Discovering What Makes You Stand Out with Judy Carlson

Raise your hand if you’re used to giving presentations chock full of information, facts, and figures?

You are not alone!

Many of us get comfortable doing this, probably because that’s how we got started as speakers and presenters.

But, your audience doesn’t need to hear tons of facts and figures; they need to understand the big picture of your topic, how it relates to them, and what they should do next.

This is precisely the evolution that our guest, Judy Carlson, did while she was in our Thought Leader Academy.

She worked with our lead speaking coach, Diane Diaz, to create her new signature talk and framework.

In this episode, Diane sits down with Judy to chat about her goal to do more public speaking and how she developed her unique framework and signature talk. 

Judy also shares about her career path, personal story, and what she learned from her time in the Thought Leader Academy. 

Plus, she gives us the lowdown on her VIP Day and how her awesome WEAVE framework came to be. You’ll love this story!

Here's the scoop on what you'll hear in this episode:

  • Why Judy decided to step up her public speaking game now

  • Judy's reasons for wanting to switch gears from training to thought leadership in her speaking

  • How Judy's personal story influenced her unique message and framework, to help her stand out from the crowd in her industry

  • The inside story on Judy's time in the Thought Leader Academy and her biggest takeaways

  • The step-by-step process we followed to create Judy's WEAVE framework - hint: WEAVE wasn't our first idea

  • What Judy thought her VIP Day would be like and what it was actually like


Our Thought Leader Academy is currently open for enrollment for our next start date of August 29, 2023.
