Nearly every public speaker makes the same mistake in the first 15 seconds of their talk.

And yet research teaches us that your audience will develop their impression of you within those first 15 seconds.

So if you shank that opening, people will tune you out and spend the whole time futzing with their phones.

And there you’ll be, feeling like a fraud in front of all of those people.

But if you completely nail those 15 seconds, you’ll have them held rapt at attention.

This can lead to leads, book sales, donations, or even shares online.

By clicking through you’ll find a short 5-minute video that will help you to never make the mistake that nearly every speaker makes in those critical opening moments of your talk.

And no email is required.

So click through and find out how you can completely captivate your audience as soon as you speak:
