6 Signals

Ed Wohlmuth wrote the Overnight Guide to Public Speaking in 1983, which led me to use one of his techniques in every single presentation I have delivered since. When you use these 6 Signals with your audiences, you will have an unfair advantage over other presenters who don't:

  1. I will not waste your time

  2. I know who you are

  3. I am well organized

  4. I know my subject

  5. Here is my most important point

  6. I am finished


Simon Sinek's The Golden Circle

The Start With Why concept was popularized by Simon Sinek in his TEDx talk: How great leaders inspire action. If you have not seen this talk, please watch it right now. It is waiting for you below. If you have seen it, but not within the last 3 months, please watch it again. You will learn something new each time you watch it.

  1. Why = Purpose: What is your cause? What do you believe?

  2. How = Process: Specific actions taken to realize the why.

  3. What = Result: What do you do? The results of why. Proof!

After you watch the video, be sure and check out his book, Start with Why. It will give you a lot more detail behind what you hear in the video. The book will give you deeper insights into Why starting with your Why is so vitally important to standing out in the mind of your audience, especially investors.
