Sharpen your team’s speaking skills to cut through the noise, be remembered, and make a difference.

It’s endless: the barrage of content, cacophony of voices, and showers of sound bites your listeners are subjected to.

How does your team break through?

By knowing the communication skills they already have, then developing those principles to more impactfully speak.

You and your team can rise above the competition with masterful speaking. No one “swipes left” hearing a great story, sharing a captivating conversation, or watching an inspiring leader share their vision of the future.

Master Speaker Lab transforms leaders and teams into the assured speakers they need to be to represent the brand, serve their people, and build towards their shared mission.

Our Programs

How are your people and their words remembered after they leave the room?

How are your people and their words remembered after they leave the room?

Whether from a virtual space or an auditorium, giving an “elevator pitch” or high-stakes conversation, you need your people to be intentional with their impact.

Your team and leaders need to know how to utilize body language to connect, use narrative structure to make their point, and have skills both to inspire action and to navigate change as it happens.

As Maya Angelou said, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

How can you weave together the solid information you have with the human cognitive principles for your listeners to remember?

If your people don’t speak impactfully, what will be lost?

Lean In Conversations with teammates

It’s a tough time for communication in general, but it’s also not the time to shy away.

It’s a tough time for communication in general, but it’s also not the time to shy away.

We start with you. After training hundreds of speakers and thousands of performers, we show people the skills they already have.

MasterSpeaker Lab then provides training to boost and utilize those skills based on principles from neurology, psychology, and biology.

We train communicators not just for one stellar performance on a stage, but for consistent and upgraded speaking strategies with body language, meeting structure, facilitation, navigating surprises, and of course public speaking and presenting.

 “You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the levels of your systems.”

Speakership Fundamentals
Talks Night Program
One to One Coaching

Practice

We believe great speaking takes attention, experience, and repetition. Just as a musical prodigy or a sports star took time for mastery, our programs are built for practice through time, participation is expected, and we get results.

Principles

We believe that “the way you do something is the way you do everything.” Whether someone is conversing with a client or standing in front of a packed auditorium, there are principles of great speaking that can be trained at every level.

Progress

We see that there are principles of spoken communication that are true across cultures, but that each communicator has their own individual skills, style, and path forward. Our groups and individual sessions give an opportunity for every voice to be heard.

Every now and then, you work with someone who is so truly gifted and skilled at what they do that you gain a sincere appreciation for their position. Margaret is one of those amazing people who is not only able to quickly mentally digest complex concepts, she’s able transform, refine, and restructure them in such a way as to make their communication effective. I was honored to have had the pleasure of working with Margaret in preparation for my TEDxSaltLakeCity talk and much of her influence is directly present in its final rendering. I would wholeheartedly endorse her for any and all aspects of communication, public relations, and public speaking strategy functions. She is a rock star.

I had the privilege of getting acquainted with Margaret when I reached out to her about speaking at our virtual Women in Technical Infrastructure (WITI) Meetup during COVID-19. From the minute we connected, we hit it off. Margaret is extremely personable and I truly enjoyed brainstorming relevant topics for this event with her. We settled on Confidence for Critical Conversations and it was fantastic! We had amazing attendee participation throughout the event with tons of virtual engagement. That is saying a lot when everyone has Zoom-fatigue! After the one hour presentation, I received countless messages from people who enjoyed Margaret’s relatable approach and immediately applicable content. In fact, an SVP reached out to thank me for securing such an incredible speaker because she received so many tips for an upcoming speaking engagement she had the following week. If you get the opportunity to work with Margaret, seize it! I know I will be staying connected to her for years to come.

Margaret has trained hundreds of TEDx speakers, but I believe her greatest value is helping people improve their everyday communication skills. Her process helps you get out of your own way so you can be yourself, spend less time preparing for meetings and calls, have greater confidence, and get the results you want. Whether you’re an executive giving presentations or just want to improve your skills working with and leading teams, Margaret gives you the tools to deliver your Everyday TED Talks.

Margaret is an incredible leader.

Over the past three years, Margaret has been an invaluable resource to me in my role as the Chair of the Board of a not-for-profit organisation. Margaret brought together a group of people that all volunteer in related organisations, and inspired us to communicate openly with each other, to learn from each other, and to maintain these new connections across a vast geographical distance (international!). Margaret has a talent for facilitating free wielding discussions, drawing out the key ideas, identifying the right people to focus on these ideas, and then holding us all accountable to follow up and turn these ideas into something tangible. Through Margaret’s leadership, my own Board has become a stronger group, and our connections to similar Boards is a change that I believe will last much longer than any of our individual terms.

Thank you Margaret!

I’ve had the privilege to get to know Margaret and attend several of her workshops and presentations. She has an authentic heart for leading others to uncover and communicate their passion. Margaret guides them through the process of telling their story in such a way that the audience is transported into the story and they can feel every emotion of the moment. She demonstrates and teaches the ideas behind public speaking for the highest level of connection, the message and the greatest impact to the audience. Margaret has my highest recommendation!
