HPS CORE | STARTING July 19, 2019

MAKE PEOPLE
THINK, FEEL, AND ACT DIFFERENTLY

You’ve witnessed time and time again that the true show-stealers are also the most compelling communicators. Forget the early bird. Just showing up before everyone else isn’t enough. And, even if you think just showing up is half the battle … what’s the other half?

If you want to do big things in the world then you need to be a top-notch performer.

  • If you want to move up to (or excel in) a C-Suite executive role
  • If you want to speak professionally
  • If you want a
    promotion or raise
  • If you want to use speaking to bring more attention to your business
  • If you want to pitch or present with confidence

YOU NEED TO
INSPIRE

Talent is overrated. We’ve seen thousands of talented people go nowhere fast ... but people with skill and craft? They’re best in class.

If you want to change the way people think, feel, and act then you need a process you can rely on every time.

You may think effective communication stems from what to do with your hands. (It’s not.) You may think you need a tip or hack or trick. (You don’t.) Even if people tell you that you’re good, you know you can be a lot better. You’re just scratching your potential’s surface.

TO BE THE BEST
LEARN FROM
THE BEST

Getting well-meaning advice from your friends or family or random people at a meet up, isn’t going to help. In fact, it can send you in the wrong direction.

Think about it like this...

IF YOU WANT TO...

MASTER THE ARTISTRY OF FRENCH MACARONS

Your friend Molly who likes to indulge in a macaron once a month

A French pastry chef who makes 1,000 macarons every morning

Become a better speaker and communicator

A group of strangers passionate about public speaking but who lack a methodology to teach it

Masters of public speaking with years of experience and proven results

Play the cello

Your Uncle Frank who listens to classical music, but doesn’t play cello

An expert cellist who solos annually at Lincoln Center

YOU’D CHOOSE THE EXPERT
AND YOU SHOULD

WE ARE THOSE
EXPERTS

We are the best at teaching public speaking because we have decades of experience doing so: creating content, writing scripts, and performing on stage and screen. But, more importantly, we have a process that took years to learn … but we can teach it to you in a fraction of that time. This way, you too can be best in class.

HERE’S HOW
IT WORKS

  • Once you’re enrolled and have completed your registration, you begin the process.

  • You’ll receive all the information you need to plan your training: your weekly schedule, the full curriculum, information to help you arrange your in-person trip to HPS HQ (Lambertville, NJ), and a self assessment.

  • Set your goal. We’ll ask you to articulate what you want to get out of this training.

  • Each Friday for 7 weeks, you will receive:
    • Video classes to watch on your own schedule
    • Weekly assignments and action items
    • Livestream Q&A (every other week)
    • Interactive study groups

  • During week 8, you’ll join us at Heroic Public Speaking HQ in Lambertville, New Jersey for a 2-day in-person training with the HPS founders, Michael and Amy Port, and expert HPS Faculty.

  • Break out the party hats and kazoos. At the end of your training, when you have successfully completed the course, you'll be a better speaker.
