Speaker's Development Lab
Get the feedback you need for personal growth
There’s no shortage of useful information shared at events and in articles on the business of speaking. But there are very few no-risk opportunities to practice material in a safe, supportive environment.
Whether you’re starting out or have been speaking for years, Speaker’s Lab is the one of the fastest and most effective ways to improve as a speaker. You’ll always get honest, constructive and compassionate feedback from others in the business. Feedback you can use to level up your impact as a speaker.
Because the lab is designed to be a safe space to practice, registration is only open to Professional Members and participants enrolled in the Speakers Development Academy.
Hear what one member says about Speaker's Lab
I love the professional-level quality of the feedback I get when I go to Speaker's Lab. I have the opportunity to get specific comments on content, delivery, staging, tone ... you name it! As an evaluator, I get to witness many styles and observe techniques I can add to my toolkit. All of this is to say that Speaker's Lab has made me a better speaker. The collaboration and support are phenomenal.
How each Speaker's Lab works
Why practice in front of others?
Stepping out of your comfort zone is never easy. We may feel we look or sound stupid at times as we develop new materials or try something different in our presentations. But it’s all part of the learning process.
The Speaker’s Development Lab provides a safe space to practice. Plus, everyone who participates strives to provide honest and helpful advice while protecting each other’s self-esteem.
