Jim Cathart in his 101 Prosperity Series is bringing the country's best speakers to address his Southern California business invited. You may be interested in some of his keepers. To see his compete write up with a photo of us with Gene Perret, Bob Hope's head comedy writer link.
The amazing Miss Fripp not only taught, but also practiced the techniques and strategies that have allowed her to reach the absolute top of the field of professional speaking. She is:
•Past President of the National Speakers Association and its first female president,
•a regular presenter on many of the most prestigious programs in the country
•a speech & sales presentation trainer to celebrities, politicians, and corporate executives around the world.
Some of her key points, as remembered by the attendees, include:
Focus on what the audience will get, not on what you will tell them.
Reduce your “I” count, talk about them not about you.
Structure Frees you, it doesn’t “freeze” you. Organize your information into a logical flow.
Use your technology, don’t let it use you. Learn how to use PowerPoint and your other tools well.
The packed audience was engaged from beginning to end of this 3 hour program. Host Jim Cathcart, president of the 101 Leaders Institute and also a past president of the National Speakers Association, said, “I’ve known Patricia Fripp for over 30 years and, of the thousands of speakers I know NOBODY is a more dedicated student of their craft than Patricia. She is amazingly dedicated to learning: story telling, script writing, speech craft, stage techniques, choreography, voice control, writing techniques, comedy, acting and performance. There is no better presentation skills coach on Earth! And I defy you to prove me wrong.”
The next seminar is scheduled for February 25th at Westlake Village Inn. The featured speaker is Don Hutson, coauthor of The One Minute Entrepreneur, one of the nation’s leading sales trainers. His topic is “Selling Value over Price”.
