Questions like: “How do I begin? How can I connect with any audience? How do I end this with a bang?” swirl through your mind. And it’s frustrating to have so many questions and nowhere to turn for answers!

Darren LaCroix wanted to be a comedian; but he wasn’t funny. He didn’t know how to prepare, or how to give a good delivery. Yet, nine years later, he became the 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking with a very funny speech. How did that happen? With a lot of hard work! Darren stumbled through mistakes and failures for years. He struggled just like everyone else.
Dear Fellow Presenter,
I came to Toastmasters in 1992… shy, lacking confidence, and with no talent. Thanks to Toastmasters, I was able to quit my day job of 11 years to become a full-time, professional speaker. Some say I’m “lucky.” Lucky? I’m just a guy who used the tool of Toastmasters better than most. Toastmasters gave me a place to practice, mentors pointed me in the right direction, and I was willing to fail.
In preparing for the World Championship Contest I studied 10 years of championship videos (90 world-class speeches), practiced at 22 clubs, got 141 written evaluations, and video-taped myself every chance I could. I also went to the previous World Champions and became a “sponge.” Their insight changed the way I presented forever. Do you think their insight could help you? Absolutely!
My speaking and comedy mentors have condensed decades of humor & speaking experience into this proven, simple, and step-by-step system. How would you like to learn in just 12 hours what it took us years to learn? You can. Decades of knowledge. A lifetime of value.
There was no resource like this when I first started it. I created this Master Presenter Pack to help get you there quicker.

P.S. Here is how you can do it, what you will get, and many testimonials from my students:
“I just received the Master Presenter’s Pack.
I stayed up until 2 am making use of it. It’s great!”
~ Mohammed Abdulla Isa
Here is just a taste of what you’ll discover in the Master Presenter PACK. Everything we wish someone had told us…
“I learned more about speaking in the 77 days prior to the World Championship
than in 6 years of speaking and 9 years of stand-up comedy, thanks to mentors and feedback.”
~ Darren LaCroix
The truth is, I thought I knew enough to be good. Most speakers, myself included, think they are better than they really are. I was OK… not good, and far from great. If you don’t believe me, watch the earlier version of my Championship speech on the bonus section of the Path to Powerful Presentations DVD.
“The Master Pack has really helped me to reach where I am now.
Darren, it is a wonderful thing to give back to the organization the way you and the rest of the team are doing.”
Most speakers are concerned about what they say, rather than what people hear. I was one of those people. Here’s what I didn’t know:
Simple. Do you want to speak better, quicker? With even less effort?
I have personally, painstakingly compiled what I have learned from the people who taught me.
Imagine what you could learn from 5 of the best speaker coaches. It’s not too late to get the Master Presenter’s Pack.
I could show you literally hundreds of unsolicited testimonials of people who were blown away by how much my educational tools have helped them speak better, quicker.
Every single jam-packed session was taught by one of these top-level speaking experts. (Have you ever attended a conference where some sessions are good… others are just OK, and a few are totally lame?) There wasn’t a dud in the bunch. We guarantee it!
The Lady & the Champs have invested literally decades of time — and literally tens of thousands of dollars — to get where they are. You can access their wisdom, experience and secrets for just a tiny fraction of that!
It simply takes following a system and learning from the best. I found the people at the top often gave me much better advice, and the exact opposite of everyone else. Why? They think differently and teach from years of experience and wisdom.
When I wanted to be a comedian, I turned to established comedians and became a great student. When I won the regional level of the speech contest, and was about to compete in the championship, I went straight to the World Champions.
Doesn’t that just make sense? Maybe it does to you & me because we think alike. I’m shocked that more people do not do that. Whenever I speak at a conference where there is a speech contest I usually only have 3 out of the 9 contestants sitting in on my session. Isn’t that crazy? I used to be in the front row, leaning forward, absorbing all I could.
“The Master Presenter Pack helped me turn a good speech a great speech.”
The tools and information improved my speech writing and delivery to the point that I won both the
Humorous Speech contest and the Table Topics contest at the same Toastmasters District finals.”
~ Sean P. Barrett – District 40, Toastmasters International
Would you have more fun? Would you be asked to speak more often? Would you earn more? Most presenters want to get more laughs, myself included. I love the feeling I get when an audience bursts into laughter. Don’t you? What if I could show you how to do that more often? Unfortunately, most people believe that you have to be born funny. By now you have likely seen my first time on stage and know that learning to be funny is possible. To help teach you to be funnier, I sat down and interviewed the people who taught me how.
I started in stand-up comedy in Boston and took every class I could and studied the pros in comedy clubs nightly. But this program is not about stand-up comedy. That is a different world. Yet, I discovered that many of the same principles that apply there are incredibly helpful to speakers in the corporate world.

Think like they think. Humor can be a learned skill, Darren is proof. In this program, just one 2:39 minute exercise, you’ll hear four people who never write a joke before, get laughs!
“There is nothing like the feeling of making an audience laugh.”
~ Darren LaCroix
Maybe you aren’t funny? Perfect. You are just like me! I took the stage for the first time at a Boston comedy club in 1992… and bombed miserably. It got even worse. My punchlines were so bad, the only thing I could hear was the ceiling fan. Ouch. Then I discovered a process. I learned that comedians actually use exercises and formulas to generate their own humor.
Do you believe funny people think differently? The truth is they do. You will never be funnier until you change the way you think. That is exactly what this program will start to do for you.
What would it mean to you if you could use humor more effectively? Seriously! How would using more humor help you with your presentations?
But there is a reason I have rarely had any of my educational tools returned. There is a reason whenever I speak around the world someone in the audience tells me how much they love my programs and listen to them over and over. There is a reason I get e-mails from around the world from people I never met who invested in my transformational tools at a higher price individually (rather than investing in a package) and they still find huge value.
One of my favorite e-mails is from someone who wants to be a better speaker and English isn’t even his first language!
“Darren, I can’t wait to share this with you!!!!! After I ordered your products, I’ve listen to those audio programs more than twenty times each… After the contest, one of the audience came to me and said; ‘I saw your improvement and you are totally different!!!’ and I said ‘Stage time, stage time, stage time…’ while he is laughing. I do get a priceless lesson from you. I am not only become more confident but also more willing to try new stuff (Dry jokes, exaggeration gestures, comic voices, and etc.) Thanks a lot, Darren; I am glad I am on the way of learning with you!!!”
Best Regards, Hubert (Taiwan)
Fair enough. Some people are pretty good as presenters. That can be the biggest problem! Why? Because they are better than most and they are comfortable. That is where I was at in 2001 as a professional speaker. When I started “hanging out” with the other World Champions, I realized just how much I needed to learn. I did not know what I did not know. I started realizing that true “professionals” are never done and are forever learning.
On April 26, 1992, Darren LaCroix made his stand-up comedy debut performance. It was a disaster. Ten years later, Darren outperformed 25,000 contestants from 14 countries and became the World Champion of Public Speaking!
That’s right! Darren will shorten your learning curve with this dynamic DVD. Learn fourteen years worth of tips, techniques, and champion secrets in just two hours.
Here’s what Darren discovered during those fourteen years… and you’ll get in this DVD!
“Be so good the only question is who comes in second.”
Does that resonate with you? It sure did with me!
I decided I would become an even better student than ever before. I wanted to study and learn from every World Champion I could. I studied 10 years of World Champion Contest videos (9 finalists each year), that is 90 world-class speeches.
And then I created a video of just the winners of each year and watched it over and over again.
All the World Champions before me had a few things in common, but they all had incredibly different styles. There was no one formula for winning. They were unique. They stood out from the pack and were not trying to be someone else. They were being themselves, but bigger. In Path to Powerful Presentations, you will learn the four commonalities each of the past world Champions have… and apply them to your next speech!
I have seen people trying to copy someone else’s style. You’ll never become great that way. The goal of my educational system is to help bring out your unique style.
For example, David Brooks, the 1990 World Champion, who has probably coached more winners than anyone, has the exact opposite style that I do. He is a writer and wordsmith. I, on the other hand, am a performer. That is my background and style. David’s background is journalism. I learned more from David, quicker, than I had since I started onstage in 1992. He is truly a great teacher as well as an amazing speaker.
“I owe you – BIG time! After hearing you, I made major adjustments to my speech and to my delivery.
The results… I took first place at the Area and Division levels! So, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for giving back.
You’ve made a major difference in my life.”
~ Melinda Condray – Coaching for Success
