If you have a speech you have to make or a story you need to tell - whether it's updating shareholders at an annual convention, or making a best man's speech or explaining safety procedure to group of elderly ladies, this 4 point checklist can help.

This is a very short course. Really it's just one 6 minute video lesson, which explains the LIFT checklist, so that you can immediately gather your thoughts and deliver a better story or speech to your audience.

You can let us know what you think via the comments or emailing us at [email protected]

Once you've delivered your speech, you might find yourself wanting to tell more stories and do more public speaking. There are plenty of storytelling / spoken word events that take place everywhere - including the world-famous "The Moth" which Lynn has worked with. To help you we have also developed a more in-depth storytelling course available. This course is designed to help you with general storytelling and other story events, even if you don't think you have a story to tell:

Wherever you take this, we hope you have fun.
