Coach Lisa will share some of her absolutely fool-proof techniques (and one of them is a big mental shift, so get ready…) for giving a presentation that grabs your audience’s attention and keeps it, while raising your professional profile more than a few notches!

Why Do I Recommend This Program?
You must consider attending this free teleseminar if you want to sell anything. Selling is about influence and influence is about keeping your customer’s attention. Coach Lisa has been my personal public speaking coach for a couple of years now and has a gentle approach to turn your white knuckle introvert into a dazzling conversationalist.

Is public speaking the same as selling my art?
Yes, in many ways it is. In your booth (or shop) you may be speaking to one person about your craft, on stage you may speak to dozens about your craft.

Here’s a quick tip: In this tough economy, artists are immediately pushed off Maslow’s hierarchy of physiological needs (eg. food, shelter, medicine) when customers feel threatened by the lack of money due to company downsizing, layoffs, and stupid things banks do, they stop buying luxury items. Yes, art is a luxury item. No more boats, expensive cars, jewelry, fine art, fine wine, or even handbags. It’s the vice that people love to have to bring meaning to their lives in addition to Maslow’s staples.

If I can do it, you sure can.

I’m not getting any kickbacks or anything from Lisa by recommending her seminars or programs. I’m just a huge enthusiast that wants to help other introverts feel better about selling the incredible work they make and invent.

Here’s to Cultivating Your Creative Independence

How to Promote Your Business Without Sounding Like a Commercial

Have you thought self-promotion is only for the aggressive saleperson? Do you choke when it comes time to talk about your art? Are you of the belief that your portfolio should sell itself?

We’ve all been there!

In many cases, art schools merely tell us that we’re supposed to talk about our work, but they really never give us the tools to do it properly. We rely on reason and technique to get us through to the next project but rarely do we know how to do this successfully.

Lisa Braithwaite, a Public Speaking and Presentation Skills Coach is going to guide us on how we can move through our own awkwardness and embrace self-promotion with aplomb.


How to Host a Trunkshow – An Interview

After I launched a brief a few weeks ago on how to launch a successful trunkshow, I was invited by by my Twitter bud, John T Unger, a fellow creative pyromaniac, to talk on his Art Heroes Radio Channel. I readily accepted and we’re scheduled to hold our chat, Thursday, June 3, 2010. While it’ll be pre-recorded talk (he doesn’t trust my raw language), I believe you’ll be able to hear it after 9pmEST that day.

Here’s a bit of the synopsis to get you sitting on the edge of your seats… ready?
