The goal of SPEAC University is to help you unlock your public speaking potential, so feel free to watch the videos as many times as you'd like and share them with others who you feel may benefit from or enjoy them. The same goes for the tips sheets and other resources. Go ahead and download them for future reference and share them with friends.


As I continue to develop and post content, I want to hear from YOU! What do you want to learn about?

Speech Structure 

Whether you're writing a letter, dissertation, email or even a tweet, the structure of your language is important so that your reader can make sense of the information you're sharing with them. A speech is no different - it must be structured in a clear, organized fashion so that your audience stays engaged and clearly understands your point.


In this free training video, you'll learn the basics of how to properly structure a speech.

Visual Aids 101

The purpose of a visual aid is to engage your audience, reinforce your message and help simplify complex ideas. When done right, visual aids can enhance your presentation and make your speech memorable. When done wrong, visual aids can distract your audience and take away from your presentation. 


In this free training video, you'll learn the basics of how to create effective and engaging visual aids.

Virtual Presentation Tips

When speaking at an in person event, do you show up right at session start time expecting to be mic'ed up, your slides working properly, comfortable with the room and ready to go? Or do you show up early to get the lay of the land, test the mic, get familiar with the room and lighting, and check to make sure your slides are working? Most do the latter when it comes to delivering an in person presentation, but in the day and age of virtual we've gotten so accustomed to flipping on a web cam that we forget the importance of showing up early and preparing for success. In this LIVE session we are joined by business communication and public speaking educator, coach, and mentor, Gino Perrotte, Founder of Right Brain Journeys, who will dish loads of juicy virtual presentation tips that will make YOU a shining 💫STAR 💫 at your next virtual event!
