this innovative, online speaker training teaches you to take off your speaker hat and put on your rockstar hat to apply the techniques of performance artists to your business speaking.
Sekou Andrews, the world's leading poetic voice, is finally teaching the secrets that make him one of the most dynamic, innovative speakers in the industry.
Ok, let's get personal. This is Sekou... I'm giving my copywriter the rest of the day off so I can talk to you directly. I'm sure one of the first things you're wondering is… really? A poet is going to teach me how to be a successful, engaging and well-paid speaker?... Really? My answer is emphatic "Yes!"
How have I been so successful as a speaker?
I trained as a PERFORMER, and I apply that training to my business speaking.
What else moves us like powerful performances? That play that left you in tears. The comedian who left you in stitches. The concert that left you singing along for days after. This is the power of a might performer. Why? Because performers tend to harness ALL of their communication power, whereas speakers tend to rely primarily on their words.

Research shows that only 7% of your communication power lies in verbal communication. That means that WHAT you say is only responsible for 7% of how effective you are in reaching, engaging, or moving someone. The rest comes from NONVERBAL communication - 38% from your voice (tone, inflection, etc.) and 55% from your body (movement, gestures, etc.) In other words, 93% of your impact on an audience lies not in WHAT you say, but HOW you say it.
So how do YOU say it? You may have great content, but when you get in front of an audience...
Does your body betray you?
Do you become stiff or awkward on stage?
Do you start doing some weird gesture and think "why the hell am I doing that? Stop it!"
If so, you need your 85%!

Scientists believe human beings only use about 10-15% of our brainpower. I believe that most speakers use only about 15% of their SPEAKING power.
There is arguably 85% of untapped speaking potential within you, but you can't access it by thinking like a speaker. You can only access it by thinking like a performer. The STAGE MIGHT: Confidence & Connection program trains you to apply the techniques of artists (actors, dancers, comedians, poets, improv artists)
to your public speaking so that you can do more than give your speech, you can PERFORM your speech. This is a speaker training unlike any other that will help you electrify audiences and unlock the hidden 85% of speaking power you didn't know you had.
I saw Sekou from the main stage and I thought, "Wow, look at his amazing presence!" Everything that he has to offer, [it all] looks so natural. I wasn't going to attend his session - I do a lot of speaking, but it isn't what I do for a living. So I thought, "I'm not that nervous" and "I can get up on stage and kind of manage an audience." But when I saw him, I immediately [received] nuggets that I can apply to my own speaking engagements and things that I'm doing on a regular basis – [like] the two minutes of diagnosing the stage and the audience - that's a BIG takeaway for me and something that I'm excited to put into action. So thank you Sekou, you are awesome!
To take a topic and turn it into, not just a conversation, but a story that keeps the audience focused for the entire time - I've never seen anybody do this the way Sekou does. Sekou keeps the message going, regardless of what it is - it could be on medicine, social media, on travel - the message is clear, concise, entertaining, and memorable. Sekou makes it all happen, all the time. He has never, ever let any of the events that I've done down... ever!
Your content is only as powerful as your ability to deliver it powerfully. So STAGE MIGHT: Confidence & Connection focuses on the delivery of your message. Don't worry if you haven't yet created the most powerful speech. Someone once told me "Sekou, your words are great, but there's something about the presence you have on stage... I could listen to you read the phone book and be wowed!"
In just 4 dynamic, fun, power-packed webinars I'm going to teach you how to ROCK A PHONE BOOK- meaning make even the most mundane content 10x more powerful using the same Stage Might techniques that have catapulted my speaking career to new heights. When you apply them to your great content, it amplifies your confidence and connection on stage, whatever your stage is.
Basically... if you open your mouth, and words come out, and go into the ears of people you want to inspire, enroll, or impress, then you need to UNLOCK YOUR 85% with Stage Might: Confidence & Connection.

People look at rockstars and think "I could never do that. That is just THEIR magic."
There is a point at which the magic end an the mastery begins.
You need only watch the audition episodes of American Idol to remember that being able to carry a tune does not make a star. The star is trained in every subsequent episode, where they learn strategic, proven techniques that enable them to ignite any audience and sell their products. Those techniques can give your speeches, your sales talk, or your boardroom presentation the same power it does for singers, actors and comedians. For the first time, you now have access to them! Stage Might teaches you how to MASTER techniques that bring out your MAGIC when speaking!
PUT SOME BRANDO IN YOUR BOOK TOUR, AND BEYONCE IN YOUR BOARDROOM

I just felt so incredibly blessed and honored and in the end... the [speech] was absolutely amazing. If you're looking for someone to coach you and guide you on how to really uniquely tell your story and get your voice and your message heard, Sekou is definitely who I suggest you work with!
Sekou is one of the most amazing keynote speakers that I have seen in years - and I've seen several. The top of my list would definitely be Tony Robbins or Lisa Nichols and he's right up there with them. Charismatic, powerful message and extraordinary delivery with take-home value - which is the biggest thing. After the [Stage Might] break-out session, I know now that I can use these tools in my every day life. And I'm not a "speaker", I'm not a trainer. I don't have any aspirations to be a trainer or a speaker. But in my day-to-day we deal with a lot of busy executives; we manage executives and their companies to…take them to the next level. There are tools that I can now use to deal with all the different departments that I deal with and all of the different personalities that I deal with. One of his best is how to deliver your message without being distracted. Phenomenal speaker! We recommend him highly!
