Veronica Rueckert: Speech Topics


① UNLEASH THE POWER OF YOUR VOICE | ② TABLE TALK | ③ TAKE OFF THE MASK

① Unleash the Power of Your Voice


What if you had a Ferrari in your garage, but you never did more than drive it around the block every day? For most of us, this is precisely the way we treat one of our most precious assets – the voice. Even worse, most people say they can’t stand the sound of their own voices. But by learning a handful of basic tools and techniques, we can learn to love the way we sound and bring joy to the act of speaking. In this talk, you’ll learn how to unleash the passion and persuasive power of the voice and how to finally understand what your own voice is capable of.

② Table Talk


Did you know decision-making groups need to be comprised of 80 percent women before women will talk as much as men? Or that crossing your arms and legs can actually make it hard for you to speak at all? In this talk, learn how men and women are different when it comes to communication, and find out how to flip the script so that everyone gets a voice at the table. From the mechanics of interrupting to how to stop an idea-poacher in their tracks, let a long-time radio host teach you skills to shine at meetings, along with the breathing techniques that can fight the fear of public speaking and give you strong voice you always knew you had.

③ Take Off the Mask


No matter who you are, you've probably had to put on a mask to get there. A mask to help you appear less passionate and more like everyone else. When it comes to public speaking, being one of the herd isn't an asset, it's a liability. And what's more, it's much less fun. In this talk, find out why it's finally time to take off the mask and why authenticity is the secret ingredient to becoming a great – and joyful – public speaker. Stuck in bland-land? You'll get techniques for tapping into your unique identity as a speaker and understand why it’s never been more important to sound like you when you talk.
