The Zen Speaker's Weekend Writing Retreat

“Talent is helpful in writing, but guts are absolutely necessary.” Jessamyn West

 

This is for you, yes, you.

Imagine 13 hours of relaxation with space and time totally focused on your creativity. You’ll be in the heart of Las Vegas and feel like you’re a million miles from any troubles, challenges or expectations.

This is for you, yes, you.

You have information that needs to be shared in a way only you can. It may be a story that will let others know they aren’t alone; it may change the way your audience looks at an issue; it may move people to laughter, tears and then action; it may move people from a place of mediocrity to excellence; or, it may bring them peace and joy. You have something to share in your unique voice.

This is for you, yes, you.

You’ve been asked to give a keynote and, although you’re excited, you keep procrastinating writing it…
You have always wanted to give a TED talk but you don’t know if you would be good enough or your idea is right for that venue…
You find yourself giving numerous short speeches: you introduce others, you give out donor/employee appreciation gifts or you accept awards – those short ones are more time consuming to write than a keynote!
You just took over as president of your favorite nonprofit board and you want to blow their socks off at the first meeting…
You’re often asked to speak and turn it down, and you think it’s because you’re afraid of public speaking; maybe you’re afraid of speech writing, too. Everyone, absolutely everyone, says you need to share your story…


This is for you, yes, you.

Take a deep breath. Now imagine yourself with a small group of 11 others feeling what you’re feeling. This time, though, it’s going to be different. No excuses. You’re in the right place, at the right time, with the right people. And, you’re leaving with the speech(es) you’ve had in your subconscious for a long time. Out of your head, out of your heart, on paper and on the way to those who need and want to hear it. Finally.

This is for you, yes, you.

Bernhard

When I met Amy I had already delivered 200 keynote addresses on six continents, and I had been the recipient of positive teaching evaluations over thousands of university lectures, so I felt relatively well-versed in the art and science of speaking. Moments into our first conversation, however, I realized how much there was to learn, and how crucial the "little things" were in public speaking, and that Amy was exactly what I had needed all along. I gravitated to her helpful teaching style immediately, and I could not believe how much my presentation skills improved - and quickly! She took a pacing, rambling, academic talker and turned me into someone who was capable of delivering a captivating TED talk. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to have met and worked closely with the very best.
