Public Speaking Topics

  • How to Lead an Effective Meeting
    Perfect for a keynote, corporate or business speech, “How to Lead an Effective Meeting (and get the results you want)” is based on a book Dick Massimilian wrote to address one of the most common problems facing businesses today: inefficient meetings. This speech is perfect for up-and-coming talent, middle management and leaders all the way up to C-suite executives.

  • Public Speaking Strategies
    Public speaking is a highly prized skill that is difficult to find in the business world. Dick provides actionable strategies that demystify this skill and challenge audience members to become more persuasive and effective speakers themselves.

  • Building Better Teams
    All businesses, regardless of industry or size, must address the question: “How do we build a better team?” For some, the answer is to make better use of their current workforce or to bring in new talent. For others, it’s a combination of both. Each industry has unique factors and characteristics to keep in mind, but Dick speaks directly to the heart of team-building.

  • Listen More to Sell More
    The best sales people listen more, talk less and sell more. In this interactive session, Dick shows people who sell both products and services how to do that.
