National Speakers Association: Own the Stage with Darren LaCroix

What is the biggest difference between a good speaker and a great one? Simple: a coach. In 2001, Darren’s Coach, Mark Brown gave him the exact opposite advice that many “well-meaning” experienced speakers did. Mark’s coaching advice was crucial to help Darren out-speak 25,000 contestants from fourteen countries. What was Mark’s advice? You’ll walk away from this program with a check list developed from Darren’s coach and his on personal experience coaching professional speakers and corporate executives, "Darrenteed."
