Lessons from our Masterclass Hot Seat Coaching

I’m so excited for today’s special bonus episode because it’s the first in a new series where you’ll get an inside look at the hot seat coaching that happens during our masterclass, The Art of The Big Talk.


I host this Virtual 2-Day Live Masterclass twice per year. And during these two amazing days, I am joined by hundreds of aspiring speakers who desire to step onto big stages.


A part of what happens during our time together is the opportunity to receive 1:1 hot seat coaching from me. My hope is that this coaching will serve to inspire you and give you some of the insights you’re seeking as you also work towards taking the stages you desire.


In these hot seats, we’ll explore:

  • Answering the question “What’s important to you?” to find your big talk idea
  • The way to make your talk idea more appealing to producers and event organizers
  • How to be vulnerable when mining for ideas and the importance of allowing yourself space to get it wrong at first and keep going
  • Finding your idea when you have many passions
