Speaking Skill Level 1 (Getting Started)

Public Speaking Course Skill Level 1 (Getting Started)


Want to jump start your public speaking, FAST?

Whether you just want to improve your public speaking fast or start a public speaking career, the Fast Start Pack was created with you in mind.  Better than a public speaking course because you learn directly from Darren and you can listen again and again


Ask yourself these four questions:

  • Do I want wisdom from a World Champion Speaker coach?
  • Do I want more laughs?
  • Do I want to get paid as a speaker?
  • Do I want to be inspired to make it happen quickly?


If you answered “yes” to any one of these…
this could be one of the most important web pages you’ll ever read.


Want it all… FAST?

Go at your own pace.  Then this public speaking course is a no-brainer.  Darrenteed!

Most speakers wish they were better. Most speakers don’t know what they don’t know. If most speakers don’t get new tools and techniques, they will just keep reinforcing the same bad habits and become more and more frustrated.

Many “seasoned” speakers have heard this first program and told me it improved their speaking immediately. In fact, I’ll bet that this first program will bring you more than the full value of this whole set. I Darrentee it.

Want to connect better during every presentation?

(Laminated card to carry with you with my 4 mindset-shifting questions)

Don’t leave home without it!

The moment you take the stage, your “mindset” is everything. You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to be the ultimate expert. The audience will forgive almost any mistake, but they won’t forgive you if you’re not there for them. I’ve developed Four Crucial Questions I ask myself before I take the stage to make sure I connect with them. I’m proof they work. How powerful are these questions…?

Well, Ed Tate, the 2000 World Champion of Public Speaking, called me just before a big presentation and asked me to remind him what my famous four questions were. After his presentation, Ed sent me a text that said:

Thank you for the four questions. I knocked it out of the park!
It was the World Championship of Public Speaking all over again.”

~ Ed Tate, 2000 World Champion of Public Speaking

People love the My CONNECT Card . . .

“WOW!… Your advice was great and helped a lot and I love the 4 questions to ask myself before I hit the stage.
I asked myself these things and then I asked God to help me to accomplish these things for the audience.”

~ Jamey French, Keynote Speaker / Greenville, OH

“Hi Darren, I think this is great! I still have your questions on my dashboard and
I read them before I teach every one of my classes. I like the idea of carrying it with me.”

~ Charli Douglass, Fitness Expert / Las Vegas, NV

“I put MY CONNECT CARD in my wallet as soon as I got it!
~ Craig Valentine, 1999 World Champion of Public Speaking
