The Path to Powerful Presentations: How I Went From Chump to Champ
Color, NR (nothing offensive), 45 Min., Available now First Run: Video Premiere THE HUMOR INSTITUTE
Award-winning public speaker and self-admitted failed stand-up comedian Darren LaCroix is filmed on video in front of a small live audience, demonstrating the aspects of what makes an effective speaker. He doesn’t overwhelm with technology or gimmicks. Instead, he literally does fall on his face. In fact, he only breaks his narrative to show clips of his first (horrible) attempt as stand-up and his presentation that won him the World Champion of Public Speaking title nine years later, proving his tricks of the trade can be learned. His bottom line: practice and get in front of audiences as much as possible. - B.McC.
