Politicians, company presidents and sales people leaders can learn to speak and persuade like Barack Obama to deliver powerful messages that inspire workers and motivate buyers. A new DVD breaks down 32 of our new President's speaking traits into lessons each of us can use to get ahead in business, job interviews and speeches.
"Speaking to get results is a skill that can be taught and learned," said TJ Walker, author of the new DVD, who has trained thousands of CEOs, authors, and experts, including United States government officials, European Prime Ministers, and African diplomats.
Walker is giving people the elements that make Barack Obama a great speaker and tell them how they can take some of those skills into their own lives.
The first five lessons can be previewed for free at this site for free.
Politicians as well as entrepreneurs and business leaders will learn how to:
- Captivate your audience BEFORE you open your mouth
- Use the 7 essential elements of every successful speech
- Hook your audience in your first 7 seconds
- Create magical eye contact
- Package your key points into personal stories

- Rehearse more effectively
- Develop star persona

"Company presidents, board members and other executives who use the course will be prepared for speaking to large audiences as well as one-to-one presentations and board room pitches," Walker said. "People will become effective presenters at road shows, industry conferences, investor presentations, annual meetings, regulatory hearings, depositions and legislative hearings."
Salespeople who study the course will become better at conducting sales presentations, product announcements and press conferences.
"These skills are so important because clients, employees, customers, and prospects will remember what you say and take action," Walker said. "You will command professional respect, convey style and substance, reduce the amount of time preparing for presentations," he said. "You will also eliminate fears, project leadership and reduce tension."
"You'll be amazed while you're being informed, as T.J. Walker breaks down Obama's style into all the infinite and eminently replicable techniques of voice, gesture, even content. The video is an overwhelmingly good value," said David Murray, Editor of The Influential Executive.
