Performative Speaking (PS) is about using other forms of art as references to create a specific vibe, mood, or feeling in the listener using different speaking tools and techniques.
Performative Speaking is art and just like other art forms, the goal is to create emotion in the audience.
The philosophy behind Performative Speaking developed over my career in 102 jury trials on cases such as murder, robbery, and child abuse.
Over the past 4 years I've taught this as part of Persausive Speaking at SMU Law School & as a coach of the national mock trial team there.
I've worked with leaders from Apple, Google, Reddit, Facebook, Venture Capital Firms, and many founders from the seed to Series C levels as a coach and consultant.
I speak on why everything in life is sales and how the best leaders and companies create powerful stories to become unbeatable.
