So speaking isn’t just speaking is it? It’s a performance. Whenever you’re in front of a crowd, the energy of the room changes and you have to change with it.

This episode, Cindy and Jason welcome a guest whose life has been steeped in stagecraft – singer, speaker and tribute artist Dave LaThangue aka Dave LaFame (stage name).

Dave discusses the bridge between speaking and entertainment in the conference and events industry. He gives great tips on how to start a show and draw in an audience as well as revealing one of the best tools to get better at your craft – the video camera.

He also shares some hilarious stories from his career as “Tom Jones” and more.

Cindy and Jason finish the show by taking on a viewer question about ending your talk. How do you finish with maximum impact?
