Never Again Take the Stage. Instead, Own it

Dear Fellow Presenter,

Ever notice how some seemingly gifted speakers make it look so easy? How do they do that? What if you could?


Most speakers take the stage, but they don’t own it. They don’t keep their audiences on the edge of their seats, leaning on their every word. They don’t energize their audiences and keep them wanting more. They don’t seduce and transform them with emotionally gripping stories. And they don’t leave them with a message that sticks.

Here’s our guarantee to you: By the time you complete this two-day workshop, you will have the tools needed to own the stage yourself. When you put these tools to work, you’ll become the kind of speaker people will travel far and wide to see.

How would you like to create a groundbreaking speech?

How would you like to know the PROCESS for creating more of them?

That’s what you’ll get at the Get Coached to Speak LIVE Master Workshop … the best PROCESS in existence to take a presentation from average to awesome.

This is the same process that helped one company raise 17 million dollars. A CEO from another organization requires that his presenters learn this process in order to advance to the next level in his company. These presenters are selling $150,000 in contracts each month. You can get the same process that these successful people are using. Join three world-class presentation coaches and get inside their minds to see what they do differently to create powerful speeches that incorporate personal, transformative stories, and life changing messages. Once they’re on the stage, learn what they do to grab and keep the audience’s attention, using techniques that most presenters overlook. And that’s just the beginning. This Get Coached to Speak LIVE Master Workshop is a unique experience. To make it transformational for all who attend, it is limited to 25 LIVE seats and 5 VIP COACHEE seats.

Here’s the Problem, the Biggest Mistake

The biggest mistake that stops presenters from greatness is usually one of two problems, ego or lack of direction. Most presenters are not willing to take a hard look at where they are and what specifically they can do to own the stage. That is exactly where Darren LaCroix was in 2001. Self admittedly, he was getting too big for his britches and thought he was good enough. When he first went to his coach, his intent was that he only needed a few little adjustments to become great on the platform. When his coach, World Champion Speaker, Mark Brown looked at the first version of his contest speech, he slowly shook his head and said, “Oh Darren, we have some work to do.”

Darren had no idea how much growth potential he had, which is putting it nicely.

Because of this experience, Darren realized the fastest way to personal growth is to be coached by experts. You need guidance from experienced speakers and consultants who know exactly what to look for and can then reach inside you to draw out the power of your own presence, life experience and message to captivate your audiences.

Darren also realized without letting go of his ego and getting coached by Mark, he would have never reached his full potential on his own. Because of this experience Darren says, “If you are not coachable, there is no cure.”

The insights Darren received will comprise just a portion of what you will acquire from this life changing workshop. And you will acquire these skills in two days, rather than over the course of two months as Darren did.

Join World Champion Speakers, Mark Brown, and Darren LaCroix as this dynamic duo shows you the secrets to owning the stage.

“Everyone LOVED it…
They told me that it was “totally engrossing” and “captivating”… None of these elements – or my delivery – would have been there had it not been for the support and guidance I got at Get Coached to Speak. It was an amazing experience!”

Not Sure You are Ready for this Workshop Yet?

Why learn “bad habits” when you’re just starting out as a speaker? Those habits could take years to overcome. If you start early and use the right tools and techniques, you will surpass many of the speakers around you. They’ll want to know your secret!

Carmelita, one of our VIP COACHEEs, wrote her speech the night before the LIVE Master Workshop. She was an average speaker with very little experience when she walked in. And she walked out completely transformed; she owned the stage.

If Carmelita can apply these principles, so can you! “My wife and I just attended the Get Coached to Speak LIVE Master Workshop. You moved my speaking years ahead in one single weekend. Thank you.” – Latta Johnson

What if I’m an Experienced Presenter
Who is Already Confident on Stage?

Even better! As a professional, you know that most paid speeches are booked as a result of someone’s having seen you present live. So, the better you are live, the more referrals you can get; and the faster you can raise your fee. Bottom line, the best speakers get coached (though some may not admit it.) Here is a perfect way to get the same insights without spending thousands of dollars.

“Mind blowing!
I flew across the Atlantic for this Master Workshop and took four days off work to come. It has been a revelation for me… It massively accelerates your learning curve as a speaker… Mind blowing!”

Forever Change How You Look at a Presentation

People who are world-class look at their expertise differently than the rest of the world. That is exactly what makes them world-class, their perspective. When Mark Brown looked at Darren’s speech, in just two minutes he could see what Darren could not see even after seven years of experience on the professional stage. Think about it. That is powerful. Isn’t that the perspective you want?

If you are getting on stage time after time with no direction, you are just reinforcing bad habits. Join Mark, Michael and Darren; and you will see things differently after this two-day experience. You will literally never be able to look at a presentation the same way again.

In those two minutes, Mark could clearly see the common mistakes that Darren was making. In order to own the stage, you must methodically remove one mistake at a time. It is very rare that anyone is born as a natural presenter or storyteller. For those 2%, guess what? We hate them, too. Most presenters had to learn it the hard way! Mark and Darren will point out to you exactly what these mistakes are so you can identify them and see how to avoid them.

Mark could also clearly see what was missing in Darren’s first version of his speech. It was obvious to Mark, but at that point Darren had no idea. That is the value of a great coach. They see things you do not. You will leave this two-day workshop with a coach’s eye. You, too, will know what to look for. “Wow, This Coaching Form is Gold!” –Fredrick Marckini, Founder of

Get Coached to Speak

“World Champion Speakers, Darren LaCroix and Mark Brown, coached me live…
…during their podcast. What I learned in just one coaching session has improved my storytelling for a lifetime! The stories I tell on stage, and even in the books I write, are so much more impactful because Darren and Mark taught me how to let my audiences “behind the curtain” of my thinking and how to paint such vivid pictures that my audiences can clearly see in their imaginations where my stories have taken place. In fact, two editors working on my newest book said, “Denise, your stories are so good, I forgot I was working!” Both editors said they had to start re-reading my manuscript to complete their edits without getting caught up in the excitement of the writing. Thank you Darren and Mark, I’m officially one of your biggest fans!

What’s on this Coaching Checklist?

We break the coaching form down into the following:

  • On-Site Preparation – Exactly what Mark and Darren do when at a meeting site
  • Your: Own the Stage Foundation
  • What the Audience is Thinking
  • MUST HAVES (27) Are you…? The crucial elements that you must have to Own the Stage
  • MUST AVOIDS (8) Are you…? Presentation killers that we see all the time!
  • 6 Steps Success Stories – how to give the audience an emotional experience that will MOVE THEM TO ACTION.
  • Slide Presentations: Be careful. Are you…?
  • Your Next Step
Get Coached to Speak

You’ll love having all of this in on one clear simple form. In fact, you’ll actually use this form during the three-day workshop. You won’t believe how valuable it is. Why? Because it was developed by three world-class coaches after coaching presenters at all levels over more than a decade. That is why it is gold.

What Will You Walk Away With?

Seeing live coaching first-hand is fascinating. A qualified coach will see things that you and others do not. Darren intentionally limits the size of this workshop to enhance the transformational experience. Many big seminars have hundreds of participants, and it easy to get lost in the crowd and walk away without the specific answers you need.

When you are in the room, you are part of the experience. Even though Mark and Darren will be leading the coaching and you will be directly involved in it. In fact, these two Master Coaches will be asking you about how you felt as certain portions of the presentations are delivered by the VIP COACHEES.

Because all participants are part of the coaching process, you will leave deeply understanding what a coach looks for and the adjustments that need to be made. You can then go back and look at some of your own presentations and know what you can do to get closer to owning the stage.

Why Now?

You may have heard the old adage, “Those who can’t do, teach.” Our world-class faculty is comprised of working experts. They are out on stages around the world doing what they do best. They take time out of their schedules to give back and teach what they do, how they do it, and show you the most up-to-date insights in the industry.

To assure that you have a transformational experience, we have three leading industry experts running this workshop for you.

Wait! This is not about our faculty; this is about your transformation. So, what are you waiting for? Graduates of our live events were just like you. They were waiting. Waiting for the right time, waiting to see how it goes, waiting for their careers to take off, waiting to invest in themselves, not really sure what they were waiting for – until they attended a LIVE Master Workshop and experienced the breakthrough of a lifetime.

Our graduates overwhelmingly agree that attending a live event was the turning point for their presentation careers. These graduates say that attending a LIVE Master Workshop is the only way to get:

  • A major breakthrough of understanding that launches a transformation
  • A change of mindset from a hobby level to world-class professional
  • Motivation from everyone in the room
  • Rapid growth from the ideas shared by masters in professional speaking
  • Personalized insights from the masters
