When he did his first 'How To Run A Successful Workshop' four day training inside the Master Coach program—something he now runs at TCI—Matt found it a "game changer" he says.
"It was the first time I got around the skills and the structures of how to organise information."
A mistake that people make when trying to become a better public speaker is to think you can wing it with random chatting. "You need a thought out pattern behind everything, and to know the structure of how to language something in a way where it actually makes sense."
Matt, who hopes to be a speaker "for the rest of my life", gives a great tip.
"A lot of people hold themselves back from becoming better public speakers because they don't feel confident. I always say to them, 'How would you feel confident? You can't. You don't have any skills. If you don't have skills you can't have confidence'."
So don't make the decision about becoming a speaker based on how much confidence you have.
Make it based on whether you could actually see yourself doing it.
"Take yourself to a place where you've moved through the shame of being seen to asking where you would like to be someone who's on stage ... if the answer is yes, even a little bit of yes, I really invite you to take the journey and learn this skill.
"If I can do it, you can do it."
