Welcome

Stand Up, Stand OUT!

When you speak, do you receive the following results:

  • People approach you to arrange one-on-one meetings
  • They buy more of your products or services
  • They refer you to other groups
  • They hire you on-the-spot.

If you’re not getting these responses after you speak, you’re missing out on golden opportunities to advance your career or business.

Public speaking is the most powerful marketing tool you have…. and also the most misused and misunderstood.

Many people mistakenly believe the ability to effectively and eloquently speak before an audience is a gift you are born with. They think “you either have it, or you don’t.”


Nothing could be further from the truth.

Giving an effective and impactful presentation is a learned skill.

Master this skill and you can:

  • Advance Your Career Faster
  • Attract More Clients
  • Make More Money
  • Master This Skill in Less Time
  • Reduce Your Stress

Every day, people are bombarded with thousands of marketing messages. The ability to Stand Up and attract the attention of other people, maintain their interest, and compel them to take action can make you Stand OUT.

It can be the difference between failure and long-term success.

Whether you are a novice seeking to overcome nerves, or a seasoned pro who is ‘stuck in a rut,’ Speaking CPR can provide the tools and processes you need to take your public speaking skills to the next level.
