Podcast: Mastermind, Episode 39

World Champion of Public Speaking Darren LaCroix shares what it means to be heard and how you can get there.



Darren LaCroix

People listen when you speak in front of others, but are they actually hearing you? That’s the question that Darren LaCroix asks us in this episode of Mastermind with Heather Christie. From his bold move into stand-up comedy and the stumbles he has had along the way, to his journey into professional speaking and his ascent to the World Champion of Public Speaking, LaCroix shares the trials, tribulations and takeaways he’s come away with.

It all starts with the question, ‘what would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?’ LaCroix answered that for himself, and the unfolding journey that answer has taken him on has brought him to his own purpose, and more success than he could have dreamed of.

Whether you’re a professional speaker or just present to clients or teams, you’ll gain powerful tools to help you polish your next presentation. Listen to the latest episode here or on iTunes
