Episode #141: Your Sales Speaking Skills with David Newman

In This Episode of The Buyer’s Mind with Jeff Shore:

David Newman and Jeff, both members of the National Speakers Association, talk about the importance of public speaking skills to help your sales skills improve.  While most of the world would rather have a root canal than speak in front of a crowd, most sales professionals are speaking in front of crowds of 2-3 on a daily basis.  Is there really much of a difference?

Topics we’re going to cover on today’s podcast:

[0:55] How do you feel about speaking in front of 500 people?

[3:36] What is your voice?

[7:53] People are brands, living in the attention economy

[14:33] Speaking is scary, mainly because we haven’t learned how to do it

[24:00] How do you establish a personal brand as a sales professional?
