Have you got to give an important pitch or speech very soon, later this week, later this month? Will your evening be taken up by yet another networking event?

Stop-off at Michael-Don Smith’s 2-hour CYSS workshop beforehand and hone your speaking skills to ensure you get the most out of every opportunity. Make sure that yours is the voice that is everybody’s greatest memory from each event. 

How can Michael-Don improve your speech so significantly in just two short hours? 

This veteran of the UK’s finest public speaking circuits will invite you to speak in front of the small, friendly CYSS group. Having studied your current speech patterns, body language, tone and overall expression of your ideas, he will then offer you personalised coaching. Michael-Don’s coaching will help you to Craft Your Signature Speech.

Many seasoned networkers visit Michael-Don thinking that they already have the perfect speech, only to find that crucial tweaks to their speech which only a specialist can pick up on, help them to get so much more business from speeches, pitches and events.

Some CYSS delegates gave an insight into their experiences of Michael-Don's coaching

Having obtained over 90% of my leads from networking, and visited almost every event in the Midlands, I thought I already had the perfect speech. How wrong I was. Michael-Don’s coaching showed me how to instantly grab the attention of the whole room at events (often 60-70 people) rather than just the people I was particularly looking to speak to. Michael-Don’s event paid for itself 10x over that day, given the extra business I picked up after a successful pitch later that afternoon thanks to his advice. 10/10 well done Michael-Don.” T O’Brien

Let’s just say when I signed up to my first Craft Your Signature Speech (CYSS), I did not know what to expect. When Michael-Don asked us to craft our 60-second elevator pitch based on our individual businesses, I started to panic, until he gave us the tools to structure our signature speech. Michael-Don is forthright and does not allow you to make excuses. He wants you to achieve the goals you set yourself at the beginning of the workshop. I came in as a novice. By the end of the two-hour workshop, my confidence in public speaking was boosted and I left with a clear idea of what I needed to do to generate better returns for my business when speaking in public.” Brett Sheldon – Founder of The BSO

I can certainly testify that Michael-Don Smith is a master speaker/trainer and I would encourage you all to sign up to attend his once in a lifetime event Craft Your Signature Speech.” Deirdre LaBassiere - Governance & Compliance Manager & Data Protection Officer at Housing & Care 21

I thought I had trained with the best in the business, but when I met this gifted and calm guy, everything I thought I knew about public speaking changed. He studied my presentation style and took me through the process of presenting by hand. Honestly, thank you Michael-Don. I have managed to master my speech and now regularly deliver speeches with calm and ease as if I have always spoken with this confidence. I am so grateful to you sir. You’ve made an enormous impact on both my personal life and my business. If you have to give an important pitch or speech very soon, you need to stop-off at Michael-Don Smith’s 2-hour CYSS workshop.” Selina Cheshire, Author, Speaker and Health Coach

Michael offered compelling insights into my pitching style. His meticulously detailed analysis gives enormous value to anyone who seeks his advice on public speaking. Ben, Property Developer
