Hopefully you saw the announcement that I’m partnering up with my colleague, Monica Ricci, to offer a fabulous online program this summer called Speak Up: Creating and Delivering Killer Presentations to Boost Your Business or Career. The program begins on September 8th and the early bird rate is in effect until August 11th.

Monica and I got together using Google Hangouts last time we offered this program and created a short little video to give you an idea of what Speak Up is all about. Click here to watch the video. (Please note that the video mentions June 12th as the start date. This year’s program starts on September 8th. Everything else in the video is accurate and describes the program and our passion for teaching it, so we decided to keep the video the same and figured you’d be able to overlook the date issue!) The video should answer many of your questions about the program, and hopefully get you excited about joining us!

This program will help you learn how to be a dynamic speaker! Whether you’ve hardly presented at all and need to overcome your fear of public speaking, or if you’re a proficient public speaker but really want to up your game and start knocking your presentations out of the park, this program is for you.

Speaking has done wonders for my career even before I started my business, and has become a huge income stream for me in my current business model. Monica also has benefited from adding speaking services to her business, both as a marketing tool and as a standalone income stream.

We want to take everything we know about speaking . . . The art and craft of it, the snafus that occur and how to handle them, how to add in your unique voice via humor, storytelling, and authenticity, how to really connect with your audience, and more! We won’t be holding back at all. We have stellar content that we are ready to share with you.

All you have to do is Watch, Listen, Act and Speak. That is … watch and listen to this video, act on it by registering to join us, and then get ready to speak up in September!

Make the most of your upcoming speaking engagement! Lisa offers additional options to drive home the message and help apply it in your organization.

Speaking Plus Reinforcement is a way to reinforce the content and customize it for your organization by offering any of the following additional opportunities:

Pre-Speaking Engagement Options

Teleclass or Webinar – A teleclass or webinar can be arranged before the speaking engagement to introduce the material and start the creative juices flowing, to allow participants to get to know Lisa a little better, and to gather feedback from attendees to get an idea of their biggest challenges in order for Lisa to further customize her presentation.

Feedback Gathering/Focus Groups or Train the Facilitator – Having Lisa conduct interviews with select members of your organization prior to a speaking engagement is a productive way for her to gather information and get feedback that directly pertains to the topic of her presentation. This allows for an even deeper customization of the material. Focus groups allow participants across all levels of the organization to express both their concerns and their ideas to make the organization an even better place to work. They are very positively focused, build morale, and amazing ideas have come from them. Lisa can also do a “Train the Facilitator” session to teach several of your employees to run these groups themselves on a regular basis.

Big Event wavingPost-Speaking Engagement

Teleclass or Webinar – A teleclass or webinar can be arranged after Lisa’s presentation providing attendees further opportunity to ask questions after they have had a chance to incorporate the ideas of her presentation, as well as to give upward feedback of any continuing challenges.

Consulting or Coaching – Many corporate and organizational clients benefit from a combination of speaking plus consulting or coaching. Usually, this involves a presentation followed by consulting or coaching with individual managers/employees/team members in person or by Skype or phone to apply the content at an individual, department or division level. Because attendees participated in the presentation, they are ready to work at a deeper level to tackle the challenges and apply the content learned. Some of Lisa’s clients have utilized her on a retainer basis where she spends  1-3 days per month in some part of their organization, encouraging, advising, and training.

Team Building Exercises – After the initial excitement of a speaking event, it is essential to find ways to encourage others not only to find commonalities but also to honor and value differences. Team building exercise are designed to create a new spirit of “We’re all in this together, so let’s enjoy one another and make it the best experience possible for everyone.”

Articles for Your Organization’s Newsletter or Website – Lisa has a ton of great written content in the areas of work-life balance, professional and personal development, leadership, time management, productivity, business and entrepreneurship. Visit the Article Library. You may use any of these articles in your newsletters or on your website by simply including Lisa’s Reprint Box and copyright, notifying us for permission, and sending us a hard copy or providing a link to our website. Lisa is also always willing to write a new article for your organization if you allow her to retain the copyright and you request it with enough lead time.

Reinforcement Package – Many clients choose to purchase Lisa’s written and multi-media materials for participants to reinforce what they learned during her presentation, apply it to their work and lives, and continue the experience of improving personal and professional development. These materials may include books, workbooks,  e-books, home study courses, MP3 audio programs, CDs, and videos. And don’t forget about the free e-zine, Create Your Purpose, Live Your Passion. Many clients choose to give a subscription to attendees as an added bonus after one of Lisa’s speaking engagements. It’s a great way to keep the message reinforced long after the speech is over. Ask Lisa for assistance in putting together a Reinforcement Package that best meets the needs of your event and your group.

A Pint Sized Powerhouse

The stage presence of a performer, the brains of a lawyer, and the heart of a teacher of the deaf ~ all wrapped up into one to deliver a productive, purposeful and passionate presentation!

Looking for a Dynamic Speaker? Look no further!
Lisa Montanaro is The Real Deal!

Lisa is what happens when brains, charisma, and heart collide! Lisa will captivate your audience with rich content, solid strategies, powerful stories, and interactive exercises, blended with humor and warmth that ties it all together. Hailing originally from NY, Lisa offers “straight talk” in a down-to-earth style so that participants leave her presentations feeling like they had a powerful and directed conversation with a whip-smart and funny friend. Lisa instills in audience members that “I can do this” attitude so they walk away uplifted and ready to get started. Participants will have a clear road map that provides clarity and structure in all aspects of their lives.

It is a great thrill and honor to use the public speaking platform as a way to change people’s lives, impact their work, and to ultimately contribute to the transformation of society and this world. Exploring new places and engaging with new people is one of my favorite things to do.

I find people and places fascinating and am a lifelong learner that tries to see the world as an amazing school that can constantly fill me up with knowledge and insight. Traveling around the U.S. – and hopefully soon, the world, as one of my goals is to speak globally – to share what I’ve gleaned from my background as a performer, educator, mediator, lawyer, entrepreneur, coach, consultant and writer is an absolute joy and privilege.

I love to connect with audiences that are hungry for something new – something that just might positively shift their thinking, their business/career, and their lives.


Lisa is the right speaker for your upcoming meeting, conference or event if:

  • Your group consists of business owners or career professionals;
  • You want attendees to feel inspired and motivated;
  • You want to increase productivity and change their mindset;
  • You want attendees to feel passionate about their work and life;
  • You want attendees to feel more focused on a daily basis;
  • You want a powerful, uplifting presentation that will empower and move your audience to action.

Deaf and Hard-of Hearing Audiences Welcome!
