Executive Speech Coach, Best Selling Author, Award-winning Radio Show Host
Shy & Introverted Student
George Torok was a shy and introverted student who learned how to become a powerful public speaker. He wasn’t a natural. That means that he appreciates how you might feel about your presentation challenges.
George Torok is on a mission to help speakers communicate more effectively because he’s experienced the frustration of poor communication and the joy of successful communication.
Radio Show Host
As host of the weekly radio show, Business In Motion, for 19 years, George interviewed over 600 community and business leaders. He learned how to nurture engaging conversation.
That means he knows how to ask good questions and listen.
George hosts the podcast, Your Intended Message, the podcast about how we communicate and how to do it better. Listen to the conversations with communication experts as we decode our messaging.
George helps you shape the whole message. Your delivered message is a blend of intended and unintended messages. The result is a combination of your words, voice, body language, props, slides, setting, timing and more.
Most speakers would deliver a more powerful message if they said less.
The leaders we need today are those who can manage when things go wrong. Anybody can manage when things go right.
Breathe like a baby. When we were babies, we instinctively knew how to breathe. We filled our diaphragm from the bottom.
Forget the oopsies – when you make a mistake – correct and move on.
You have all the confidence you will ever need inside of you. It might be hidden deep. You must give yourself permission to let it out.
If the speaker sent a message that the receiver didn’t understand – who needs to change?
If you portray yourself as perfect – we won’t believe you and we might hate you. We’ll like and trust you when we can see that you’re imperfect like us.
PowerPoint is like your presentation suit. A good suit won’t make your presentation successful. A bad suit can destroy your presentation.
You need to follow a system to succeed. Raw talent is never enough.
The more we see you speak in public – the more we believe you to be a leader.
