How to Open and Close Any Presentation with Joel Weldon

The Idea Climbing™ Podcast

Idea Climbing® Podcast Episode 45 If you’re an entrepreneur you’re constantly presenting to people. But are you doing it effectively? I recently discussed a component of successful presentations with Joel Weldon, a Hall of Fame professional speaker with over 3,000 paid talks and who has personally coached over 10,000 speakers. Yes, he knows a thing or two about presentations. A presentation is anything that you’re communicating ideas to someone else. This could be an email, a phone call, a video call, an interview and, of course, live and virtual business presentations and many other formats. All of those are the same in the sense that they need to start some place and end some place. According to Joel, to successfully open and close a presentation you need to have a S.Y.S.T.E.M. What is that? “Saves You Stress, Time, Energy, Money”. Think about the last presentation you made. How did it open and close? Were you strategic? The key tip for opening your next presentation is to always make it about your audience. You know it’s about them if you use one three-letter word and get rid of one one-letter word. Those words are “you” and “I”. When you’re presenting it’s not about you its about them. Consider something as simple as an email. Open your email by writing about the other person. Instead of “Hello Chris, I’m writing you because…” consider “Hello Chris, I hope you’ve had a great week so far and all is well with you.” That’s a simple twist and now you have them engaged in the email. In this episode you’ll also learn about: More tips for successfully opening your written presentations. How to open business video presentations. A deeper dive into the S.Y.S.T.E.M approach and an invitation from Joel to set up a 30-minute call to discuss your situation and goals. Why Joel believes that a call to action should never be the closing of your presentations, and what to do instead. The three types of calls to action to include in your presentations, just not at the end. 22 words of advice for successfully presenting your ideas to your audiences. …and more golden nuggets of advice!

About The Guest Joel Weldon: At age 18— Joel never stood up in four years of high school and gave an oral report or spoke in front of his class, he was so shy and had no confidence.

If that happened to you, what would you have done? At age 36— Joel was inducted into the professional speakers Hall of Fame, standing alongside the world famous speaker Zig Ziglar.

Speaking Excellence into Customer Service with Joel Weldon

Standing On Service Podcast

Joel Weldon, professional speaker, joins this episode of the podcast to talk about how speaking can help all of us with customer service. He shares his own story of how he got into speaking professionally, and how he has been able to use this to create customer service. For business leaders, they talk about how you can create standards across several businesses, and how you can help foster excellent speaking and customer service in your own companies. Key Takeaways: Joel's exposure to the business world was as a customer. Speaking wasn’t something that was natural for him, but after his first sales presentation, he got life-changing feedback that shaped the course of his professional speaking career of over 46 years. No matter what business you’re in, you are a speaker. There are three keys that tie speaking to customer service: 1. Speaking is a learned skill 2. Being an excellent communicator is being yourself 3. It’s always about what’s going to be best for the customer; they are the lifeblood of your business. Joel and Troy talk about how to standardize communication across different branches or locations. The words that you teach the people on your team are important for creating consistent customer service, not only to foster positive experiences but also to mitigate situations where customers may be upset. If you don’t have the right people, you aren’t going to get the right results. An employee’s attitude is going to determine the results you get out of them. When you find the right fit, amazing customer service can happen. One of the best customer service models is Walt Disney — his philosophy is shaped around doing what you do so well that people will want you to do it again, and will bring other people with them to experience it. As a leader or owner of a business, it is your ability and responsibility to spot potential in your employees. Creating good customer service is about finding good people and making them great, by teaching them the right words and procedures, and rewarding them for their effort.

Learning How To Speak Publicly with Joel Weldon

The Melting Pot with Dominic Monkhouse

How is it possible that somebody who (in his own words) literally couldn’t lead a silent prayer, become a Hall of Fame speaker and a speech coach to Verne Harnish, author of Scaling Up and Rockefeller Habits?In today’s episode we speak with Joel Weldon about how and why he became Verne’s speaking coach, because Verne has been public speaking for decades, so why would he now need someone to help him with speaking publicly? But that’s a story he saves until the end of the podcast. Plus, the episode isn’t about Verne, it’s about Joel, a man who brings life to the phrase: find a job you love and never work another day in your life.Joel is 80 and still working full time. He shares some of his backstory: how he thought he would never be the kid that would go on to speak in public. He didn't go to college, he didn't think he was smart enough. He was a former construction worker who was too shy to speak in public and too shy to sell, until he had his transformational awakening.This is a really fantastic conversation, much of which you can put to work today or tomorrow or whenever you listen to this podcast. There are so many takeaways that can change your business in big and small ways. As Joel so succinctly said: “Let me give you 22 words. If you had to take everything that I've learned about communicating, speaking, and put it in one sentence, here it is - speak to your audience about what they need, in an organised way they can follow and get yourself out of the way.”For more gems like this, download and listen to this week’s episode. On today’s podcast:How Joel got into public speakingSpeaking is a learned skillThe ‘you’ factorHow Joel tweaked Verne HarnishThe importance of CTAKnow your audience Love Joel's work?  He has been kind enough to offer subscribers a fantastic 50% discount on his Ultimate Speaking System! To take advantage of this brilliant offer, subscribe to The Melting Pot and get the discount code here on our website.
