The Impromptu Speech
Tips for Giving an Impressive Last-Minute Speech or Presentation
Learn how to create a powerful presentation no matter how much time you have to prepare with a battle-tested strategy for executing an impromptu presentation that wows your audience.
Proven strategies for wowing your audience—even when you are totally unprepared
For most people, public speaking isn’t enjoyable – in fact, there are studies that show that only 10% of people actually like public speaking. The rest of us experience more negative feelings—ranging from mild nausea to outright debilitating anxiety.
And whether you realize it or not, you’re presenting on a daily basis – whether it’s motivating your team to gear up for a new initiative or pitching an idea to your boss or making a sales pitch to a prospective client, a leader’s life is a series of “presentations” where we attempt to motivate, persuade or influence.
And while most of us would prefer time to carefully prepare all of our points and practice our presentation, the reality is that this isn’t always possible.
So what if you don’t have time to prepare and practice?
What if out the blue, you were asked to give an off-the-cuff presentation?
Would you be able to do it and use the opportunity to showcase your expertise, intelligence and professionalism? Or would you become a rambling, incoherent mess?

In this webinar, Kevin Eikenberry will share insight from decades of public speaking experience, and you will walk away with a battle-tested strategy for executing an impromptu presentation that wows your audience.
