Speaking Topics, Promotion Material, and Suggested Questions
Two Areas of Interest for Podcast Hosts:

 

1) Uncommon Keys to Presentation and Speaking Success

Promo Copy:

For speakers, business leaders, coaches and experts ready to amp up their message so it truly lands. The energy you bring to everything you do is what matters most? Whether speaking from a stage, on a screen, to a small group or one-on-one, how people experience you in unspoken ways can push them away or draw them to you.

“Energy” is more than healing modalities like acupuncture or body work — it shows up in the stories you tell, both in terms of WHAT you say and HOW you say it.

Vicki Dello Joio has guided hundreds of clients to step into the spotlight, speak their message with passion, presence and power so they can serve people in the ways they know they were born to do.

Your audience will learn how to

  • Command the stage, screen or room while staying authentic.
  • Explore techniques to keep their mind alert (even with stage fright)
  • Discover Uncommon Ways to Amplify the Power of your Presence (who knew that qigong, ancient Chinese practices for energy management, could make all the difference?)

Transformation is the process of a lifetime, based on the choices you make each and every moment. When your energy is blocked, emotions run amok, body-mind-heart connection gets disconnected, we do NOT make good choices. Certainly not in the moment nor for living our fullest, most Joy-fueled life.
