2020 is the year of the Remote Speaker Camp! Woohoo.
So you can improve as a speaker, from wherever you are in the world.
I’ve designed them to be super fun, practical and supportive. The perfect environment to build your speaker skills and make a new talk, while still having the flexibility to fit it around your work and home life.
Who are they for?
The first public one – open to any speaker – is a Remote Speaker Camp for INTROVERTS.
Honestly…I am an off-the-scale introvert myself. I once went to an in-person business course for 2 weeks – it was all zipwires and non-stop groups tasks, with one solo task set for the final day. A presentation. I literally sobbed the night before and tried to figure every which way to get out of it, because I was soooo exhausted. I won the prize for best presentation, but I still cried most of the way home too, and then got mad in a ‘this is not the only way to train people!’ kind of way 😊
Suffice to say….the speaker camp will be designed so you can challenge yourself and improve your speaking skills, but not in a way that will exhaust you!
When will it be?
It will start in September 2020, and run remotely for 6 weeks (Sat Sep 19th – Sun Nov 1st).
How will it work practically?
You will select a timezone to ‘camp in’. There will be a maximum of 6 people in that speaker group, and you’ll also be part of the bigger camp community (max 60 speakers).
This means that you will have the chance to get to know your fellow speaker campers, but also be able to get wider feedback as you work, in ways that suit you.
Each of the 6 weeks will have a focus, to help you develop as a speaker in the following 3 areas: MINDSET; CONTENT; DELIVERY.
All of the tools and materials you need will be provided in written and video form each week, so you can apply them to making a talk in a way that fits with your schedule.
There will also be a live schedule of fun activities and small group coaching calls with me throughout the 6 weeks, to support your progress. Plus, access to me as the camp coach for the 6 weeks. It will be my full-time focus to coach you through, provide prompts and pep talks, and answer your questions! 😊
Other fun elements will include:
- welcome weekend
- your speaker camp-kit
- short talks from awesome guest speakers
- a remote ‘movie night’
- speaker badges
- camp (quick) fire questions
- guest specialist coaches
- show and share zones
- and themed small-group challenges (no zip wires, I promise!)
What will I work towards?
I suggest that you work on making a new talk – one that you may have been wanting to make and share, but haven’t got to yet! It will be a highly supportive environment to take risks, and try out new tools. Plus you will be encouraged to share your work in a number of formats throughout the camp, building up to sharing 15 mins of your talk live.
$1500 USD per speaker
