50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong
There was only one Elvis. He was paid a large sum of money to be Elvis and he will always be remembered. There are a million Elvis impersonators. They are paid small sums of money to be someone else and they will never be remembered.
Being an authentic presenter begins with you deciding who you are, understanding your uniqueness and working hard every day to bring the best of your genuine self to each presentation.
You have a unique path. No one in the world has ever walked through life just like you. Your audience deserves all of you, not some of someone else. Your stories. Your beliefs. Your shortcomings. Your expertise. You.
To tap into your inner-Elvis, answer the following questions as quickly and honestly as you can…
What is your greatest strength?
What do you most believe in?
Who are you in three words or less?
What do you know the most about?
What are three interesting personal stories?
Describe your favorite type of presentation.
Describe your favorite audience make-up.
If you only had only one thing to say to the world, what would it be?
