Connect With Your Audience And Inspire Them

"Our program is completely out of the box, which is how we consistently achieve life-changing results.”

~ Lynn Kirkham, Founder, Yes You Can Speak

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

You're prepared. You've thought it all through. You're ready to share something meaningful with your audience.

 

And then...

 

Your words come out jumbled. You start sweating and forgetting. ​You're overwhelmed and feel that you'll never find your way through this moment. Ugh!

In the Speak Like a Pro training program, you’ll clear away those internal thought monsters —and learn to confidently and clearly convey your message online and in person.

Through this journey to find your authentic voice, you'll:

​

  • Learn to connect deeply with yourself, your message, and your audience

 

  • Build courage and confidence to trust your voice

 

  • Be part of a community of mutual support where you will rise together

 

This is the training program that transforms awkward, terrified public speakers into successful presenters who enjoy the accomplishment of totally landing their messages one-on-one, in meetings or even on stage. We've seen it countless times with the hundreds of people who have walked through this process with us!

OUR PROMISE

​

You’ll graduate from this program being comfortable in the spotlight (even enjoying it), able to connect with your audiences, make a great impression, and inspire them with your message.

​

We also promise:

​

  • You’ll stop freaking out when you think about your audience and instead find resonance like you would in a 1-1 conversation 

  • You’ll learn multiple ways to let go of the jitters so you can speak with conviction​

  • You’ll embrace your inherent value and feel comfortable in your own skin

  • You’ll find ease in slowing down and becoming a master of ‘the pause’

  • You’ll build on your natural strengths so others feel the best parts of you

  • You’ll be supported at every step by a tribe that “gets” you and fully accepts you

Heart of Peace
Here's what won't happen:

​

We won’t critique or shame you in front of others. If you can Google it for free, you won’t learn it here. We won’t make you do anything you don’t want to do. We won’t make you memorize a script or create a slide deck. We won’t count your “umms” or other filler words. We won’t bore you with outdated material you’ll never use. We won’t record and dissect a video of you speaking either.

We’ve seen that having multiple positive experiences in front of others (instead of judgments or criticism) will enable your self-confidence to soar.

EMBRACE YOUR STRENGTHS

So You'll Feel Comfortable in the Spotlight.

During each class,

you’ll have several opportunities in the spotlight where we’ll build on your natural strengths. And you’ll learn to receive and embody those strengths at your core when you speak so that you come across as authentic and genuine. 

 

There will be moments of meditation, mindfulness, and out-of-the-box exercises that will enable you to understand yourself better and appreciate the qualities that make you special. Each time you speak in small groups, you’ll have a coach so you get personal and positive feedback that will inspire you to believe in yourself, because believing in yourself is key.

Heart of Understanding

about things that don’t matter to you, you’ll be asked questions so that you get to know yourself better and then naturally be able to advocate for yourself personally and professionally.

Instead of Speaking

When you choose to know that your ideas are worthy of being heard, those in your audience will reflect that back to you.

HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Devin | A Previous Student of Yes You Can Speak

"The inspired speaker program is different from any other public speaking course you will encounter. It is deeply rooted in healing your relationship to yourself and connecting you strongly to your heart. From this place of trust in who you are and connection to what you stand for, the correct words flow effortlessly. As I continue the practices I learned in this program, my love for myself and my belief in my presence continues to grow and honestly just blows me away. Lynn and her team are absolute powerhouses. They push you to love harder, connect deeper, and keep the vibes as high as possible. No matter what arises in their container, you feel held and supported the whole way through. They are truly changing the game. Thank you, Lynn, from the bottom of my heart. I love who I am and I love how I speak more than I ever thought possible."

A few common questions we get from people looking to join.

Most speaking programs have an outside-in approach, which will never permanently shift the fear response in your brain. On the other hand, the Yes You Can Speak method is an inside-out approach, which uncovers and releases triggering past experiences, limiting beliefs and behaviors that sabotage you. We then help you to reprogram your nervous system so that being in the spotlight and speaking well becomes second nature.

Toastmasters is a fantastic organization that gives you a place to practice public speaking. They will teach you how to structure and memorize a speech. But if you've got a lot of fear, it may take years and years to feel comfortable. Once you have a strong foundation and get past your fear, Toastmasters is a fantastic place to practice.

How is YYCS different from other public speaking programs?

We employ a strategic step-by-step system that uses neuroscience to release patterns in your brain that cause stage fright.

 

Most speaking programs use an outside-in approach, which we believe will never permanently shift the fear response in your brain, body, or nervous system. These programs focus on critiquing you in front of the group, reinforcing the feeling that people will always judge you. So we don't do that, and direct our attention instead to building on your strengths.

​

The Yes You Can Speak method is an inside-out approach that uncovers and releases triggering past experiences, limiting beliefs, and sabotaging behaviors. Since research indicates that 90 percent of human behavior is subconscious, this part is essential because if you don't address it, the patterns of staying quiet or having continual self-doubt may never go away.

 

We then help you to reprogram your nervous system so that being in the spotlight and speaking well becomes second nature.

 

Powerful meditative and experiential exercises will help you to access your inner wisdom, tap into your purpose and illuminate who you are meant to be in the world.

How are the Level I and Level II group trainings structured?

Both the Level I and Level II trainings are online and four weeks each. Class meets for 3 ½ hours once a week, during which you will have multiple positive experiences in front of small groups. The curriculum includes meditations, self-reflection, and lots of ways to build your resilience, let go of the jitters and step into your authority and your heart.

 

You'll have unlimited access to Lynn so that you are sure to get the results - plus a huge bonus of warmth and support from the community between sessions to reinforce the teachings and keep reigniting your light.

Are you going to teach me  how to make slides and structure talks?

We do not teach how to create slides or structure talks because you can look all that up online for free. Instead we focus on your inner transformation, period.

 

Being able to speak without fear is our promise, no matter who is in your audience.
