Speech Coaching to Simplify Your Job & Electrify Your Executives with Patricia Fripp

Patricia FrippThe Silicon Valley Speechwriters Roundtable hosted Patricia Fripp for a webinar on ‘Speech Coaching to Simplify Your Job & Electrify Your Executives’. A full video recording of the event is available.

Please ignore the terrible delay on my video which makes it seem as if I’m heavily medicated – there is no delay on Ms. Fripp’s video whatsoever. You’ll hear her describe:

  • How she first became involved in professional speaking
  • How she works 1:1 with executives to prep them for an important speech
  • What it takes to launch a freelance speechwriting business
  • What speechwriters can learn from Hollywood scriptwriters
  • How to deal with executives who are boring onstage

and much more…

During the webinar we addressed a number of audience questions. However there were two questions we did not have time to answer. Here’s Ms. Fripp’s response:

  • Question from Chris: Ms. Fripp, How do you balance the tension you just mentioned on having a back story and get in the story early? As well, can you elaborate more on leaving it with more there (as Hollywood writers suggested)?

    Ms. Fripp: Chris, no I said “get into the story late and leave early.” This relates to getting to the main action of the story earlier. The person I am quoting is Michael Hauge. Check out his website and sign up for his newsletter. Most speakers give too much set up.

    (Ian adds: Read this meeting report on the May 2014 NSA Northern California meeting where Michael Hauge and Patricia Fripp discuss how Hollywood Secrets help Professional Speakers.)

  • Question from JoAnn: Is there a way to incorporate these tips into our every day life and conversations in order to practice these tips?

    Ms. Fripp: JoAnn, yes. Getting to the point, focus on the listen, give examples and application for your ideas is just as important in conversations and 1-1 meetings.
