Banner for Speaker

Started by Kent Julian. Last reply by Jen McDonough "The Iron Jen" Mar 17. 1 Reply

Jen McDonough asked me about banners I use for booths when I'm speaking. I don't do this a lot. In fact, I only do it when I'm vending because usually, when you keynote, you get a table to set up your product. If you ask for your table to be…Continue

Kent, thanks for teaching me about developing my message during our one-on-one coaching and the Mastermind group sessions.  I was asked Friday to come speak again to Caterpillar International on "Developing Weeders to Leaders."  Erin Shaw gave me that great title in our Mastermind group.  Speaking this week for 2 days at the Biltmore, one day I will be showcasing.  Thanks Kent for coaching me!  Of course, I am very grateful to Dan Miller and how much he has given through his books, podcast and seminars. I am blessed. 

Comment by Don Roulo on June 14, 2013 at 4:47pm

Thanks Leo.  I appreciate you words of encouragement.  I love speaking.  It really is my groove. It is my passion and what makes me tick.  Get me in front of people and I really do 'come alive'.  (Not meaning that in a boastful manner.)

Kent...you bet you see an E+R=O bracelet.  I wear it a bunch.  It is a great conversation starter for me with kids and adults alike.  I tell them it is a buddy's idea and bracelet, but it allows me to transition to things I do as well.  I have shared the meaning with first graders to 60 somethings.

Kent...having you say excellent is a great compliment and I feel humbled by it.  I really do!  I do NOT say things like..."Amen, praise the Lord, Hallelujah"...or churchy stuff when I am in a non-church setting.  I absolutely shift gears.  I am still me and my core is obvious, but not 'churchy'.

Other than saying those things please share what other things would be good to change?

I know I can use your insights again and I am sure there are others here that speak in churches and then go to non-church settings that could benefit with you sharing more detail.

Please share more...

(I know we have talked about using notes before too.  I use them for church things because it is a different message each time.)

BTW...this is the service that started slow for me because of a four school bus accident that happened just a couple hours before the service.  I taught that day at that school and I just missed the accident.  Threw me off for just a bit.

Don...you are a natural. You are easy to listen to. You are laid back yet have good energy. Very cool balance. Excellent!

From our past conversations, I think you know this, but when you speak in a non-church setting there are probably some things you might want to do differently.

Don...do I see an E+R=O wristband :)

Comment by Leo J. Lampinen on June 13, 2013 at 9:57pm

Great work Don, that was really great.  You should be proud.

Comment by Don Roulo on June 13, 2013 at 7:08pm

Finally!  I have a full length video to share of me speaking.  When I say finally, I really mean it.  The last four times I arranged to have a video done of me speaking it was all set and done, but when it came time to find them...they were lost or no good.

This video is of me at my home church a couple of weeks ago. 

If it sounds an awful lot like Dan...no wonder...LOL.  Dan is a great mentor. It is information many of us have learned here at 48 Days, but with my twist and my personality.

"Your Gifts For His Glory"

I would love to have some feedback on what you think. Remember, it is my home church.  I am very familiar with everyone.  I do apologize for the video and audio quality.  They had someone filling in and they recorded it on a different system.

Would love to hear any feedback.  Thanks!!
