Before You Speak: Saving the world from tedium, one speaker at a time!
Presented by Tim Ferrell

We all make presentations. Some of us stand in front of group audiences; all of us present to individual clients and prospects. And, we network. We want to ask questions, provide information, persuade, and sometimes entertain!

When we speak, do we reach out and grab hold of people? Do we tap our listeners’ passion? Do they “lean in” or.. ? Are our messages sticky? Do we help our audience listen? Is our story compelling?

Our guest speaker (AND roundtable teacher), award winning comedy writer/director Tim Ferrell sure is… compelling, humorous and an excellent teacher.

For over 20 years, Tim has saved salespeople through CEO’s, trainers and teachers, from delivering tedium to the world. Before You Speak is for each of us. Tim will help us be a presence and speak with panache; step-by-step from preparation to delivery.

Tim has been in front of audiences professionally since high school. He went from college to off-Broadway, where he discovered his comic side. After performing in clubs, Tim started teaching workshops in stand-up and Improvisational Comedy. His better-known students include Jon Stewart, Chris Rock and Ray Romano. Tim has also written for Comedy Central’s “Alan Harvey Show” and Nickelodeon’s “You Can’t Do That on TV.”

Tim now lives and teaches in Maine. He runs workshops and works one-on-one with comics and non-comics alike at Portland’s Comedy Connection and beyond, offering help with speaking engagements, presentations, interviews etc.
This program will help you to: Be more confident in your presence. Help others find you interesting. Reach out and pull people to you to listen. Have fun. Then: Show Up!

BONUS Offering:  Tim will ALSO be running a hands-on round-table after the regular program.

The A.C.E. regular meeting has networking, a buffet breakfast and a speaker. Guests are welcome.
