Do you feel that your keynote is flawless as it is, or could it use a little work? We are of the mindset that you should always be working on your craft and improving your presentation. On this episode of The Wealthy Speaker Show, I’m so excited to welcome my good friend Darren LaCroix.
Darren is currently the only speaker in the world who is a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), an AS (Accredited Speaker), and a World Champion of Public Speaking. In 2001, he outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to become the World Champion of Public Speaking. He did it with a very funny speech. Some said it was one of the best speeches in the history of the contest.
“If we don’t stretch ourselves in that comfortable bubble, we’re never going to reach our full potential in the real world.” Darren LaCroix
