Making Magic Moments with Lou Heckler

It’s always a great pleasure to hear a master story teller at work, and it’s even more so when the master story teller is telling stories to help you understand his craft.

This week the National Speakers Association Australia brought out international speaker and speaking coach Lou Heckler to speak to speakers about the craft of speaking – making magic moments happen.
Amongst other things, Lou talked about asking “what’s this like” – scanning your ongoing experience to “take a slice of life”, something that you can relate back to your work or to your customers’ needs. Lou talked about controlling your focus – putting away visual aids after you use them so the audience’s attention returns to the speaker. In response to audience questions, Lou discussed his process of developing a keynote speech in great detail.
Lou graciously gave his time for a video interview with me after the workshop, but due to a technical issue this footage is no longer available. However I can mention that Lou gave this advice to aspiring speakers: find your passion, be an expert in your area, and to be authentic and respectful with your audience.
