Tomorrow is the big day!
I will interview world-renowned speech coach Christine Jahnke on Books That Transform at 10:00 a.m.(EST). Christine is the author of the most instructional and inspirational book on public speaking, The Well-Spoken Woman: Your Guide to Looking and Sounding Your Best.
I must say that I received way more than I bargained for from the 355-page book. I learned so much about–
- How to write an effective speech,
- How to conquer the camera (because you know it adds as much as 15 lbs. to your figure), and
- How to increase my likeability factor.
I also learned how influential women like Maya Angelou, Ann Richards, Indra Nooyi, Barbara Jordan, Pat Summit, Melinda Gates, Elizabeth Dole, Suze Orman, Madeleine Albright, and Hillary Clinton possess the Power Persona Trifecta and how I can possess it, too.
Well, I thought I would let you in on the questions that I will be asking Christine, tomorrow with hopes that you will meet us there. If not, at least you will have a “heads up” when you listen to the archives.
Questions for Christine Jahnke
- Chris, in the past 20 years, you have been a speech coach for some extremely influential women. Tell us about an experience that you would rank as the most unforgettable moment in your career.
- In the beginning of the book, you say that all well-spoken women share a few characteristics that make-up the Power Persona. Chris, give us an example of someone who embodies the Power Persona Trifecta.
- When we think of a speaker making a connection with the audience, many of us might guess that what the speaker is saying makes the most impact, but on page 81, you say that is not so. Chris, what magnetizes audiences even more than the content of our message?
- Chris, someone listening may be thinking, “Well, I’ll worry about the visual and vocal after I figure out how to write a speech.” Why is it that we might feel comfortable writing a research paper, an essay, or even a blog post, but writing a speech just intimidates us?
- Chris, now it is time for us to really take notes. Let’s say that Well-Spoken Wilma has accepted a speaking engagement at the American Business Women’s Association’s National Leadership Conference in 2013. What steps for speech-writing success would you give her?
- Chris, Wilma is doing her best to follow your steps but she is struggling with two things—writing what you call a bang-up opening and a bang-up closer. How would you coach her through this tough spot?
- Chris, let’s talk about conquering the camera. We know that today’s well-spoken woman will be caught on camera at some point whether it’s YouTube or NBC and she might appear to be as much as 15 lbs. heavier than she is. Please give us a quick overview of how we can project like-ability and SHAPE UP to go on camera.
