Some speakers, even the most passionate ones, believe good content is enough to captivate all audiences. The truth is, without deliberate structure, even the most knowledgeable and experienced speakers struggle to guide listeners from where they are, to where they want them to be, to where they never even imagined! 

In this episode of Speaker Driven Business, Jacqueline explains why structure and framework matter, and why winging it won’t always work, even if you consider yourself highly creative.

Jacqueline outlines the core structures top speakers use to transform listener perspectives. Additionally, she expounds on when to adhere strictly to structures, when expertise and experience grant flexibility and freedom, and why mastering the rules allows bending them once you build necessary muscle.

If you want to guide audiences to unexpected revelations instead of just sharing valuable information, this episode will definitely equip you to leverage frameworks for maximum impact.
