Whether you are giving a keynote in person or virtually, you do not want to prepare for it without knowing these 5.5 tips! Our friend, Mike Pacchione is a professional Keynote Coach, and he wants YOU to deliver an unforgettable keynote that will inspire, educate, and even convert (into clients!) your audience.

Mike has coached people with their keynotes and TedTalks over the last 8 years. Names like Donald Miller, Amy Porterfield, James Clear (Atomic Habits), Ian Cron (of Enneagram fame), and so many more! He has also spoken to big companies like Nike, Starbucks, and The State Department.

5.5 Tips to an Unforgettable Keynote

  1. Push them into the pool! (Metaphorical!!! Don't push people into actual swimming pools. Thank you.)
  2. People remember visuals better than words
  3. Err on the side of a shorter explanation and speak faster than you think you should (especially when presenting virtually.)
  4. Find the villain (your audience's resistance)
  5. Be the emotion you wish to see in your audience

And a little bonus tip:

5.5 Finish early!

These tips will truly help you to prepare for, and deliver an absolutely incredible, and unforgettable keynote! If you think about any good keynote you've ever heard, the thing that sets it apart is the fact that you probably forgot you were listening to a keynote! When your audience feels like you are a friend who is talking to them and helping them with something – that's a win!
