346: Get More Speaking Gigs by Adding Body Movement and Vocal Variation with Victoria Moran [In-Person Speaking Series]
Did you know that you will get *more* speaking gigs if you focus on your delivery as well as your content?
Your body movement, use of the stage, and vocal variation are all essential to become a compelling and in-demand speaker.
My guest today is Victoria Moran, an incredible speaker, author and podcaster, whom I’ve known for nearly 10 years, so I’m thrilled to have her on the show.
In this episode, Victoria and I talk about:
Getting started as a professional speaker
What she learned from acting training
How she uses body movement and dance in her speaking engagements (even though she’s not a dancer, as she admits!)
Why your delivery as a speaker will get you more (and better) gigs
The important use of vocal variation when telling stories
Her favorite speaking experience
Her worst speaking experience and what she learned
I know you’re going to get lots of great ideas for your own speaking engagements!
This is the second episode in our new podcast series to help you up level your in-person speaking skills.
