Marty M. Fahncke was tricked into being a speaker … literally. But has fully embraced it since then. “Every opportunity I’ve had to present has made me a better speaker, a better presenter,” he said. “I’ve built on that and that’s really been the key to success.” In this episode, Marty talks about the importance of audience engagement. “I have worked tremendously hard to make sure that my audiences are engaged with what I’m saying and what I’m doing,” he said. “Because if they’re not engaged, then there’s no point in you even being on that stage.”
Marty Fahncke’s Big Tip: “Be decisive about what super powers you want to enhance,” he said. He suggests that you focus on one or two “public speaking super powers,” those that most resonate with you. And “then focus with intention on every speech you give on enhancing those powers.”
