Imagine hearing a presenter and thinking, “They remind me of Tony Robbins and Les Brown. The perfect Motivational Speaker!” Then you meet them in the hallway and they sound ‘normal’…as if they turned off their ‘speaker voice.’

In this episode, Mark and Darren discuss authenticity and pose the challenging question: Are YOU ‘Super Speaker?’



• Be yourself. Bring your personality to every presentation


• If your assignment warrants a dramatic voice, then use it.


• No need to try being the ULTIMATE EXPERT


• Your audience is already there and they want to hear YOU


• Record and watch yourself on video


• Do a gut check and assess yourself


• Avoid the risk of seeming disingenuous


• Authenticity + Vulnerability = Credibility
