BECOME A BETTER SCREEN VERSION OF YOURSELF

The world of keynote speaking, performance and presenting has changed. Probably forever. We've left the theatrical world of the conference stage and moved into the cinematic world of the screen. That's scary and very exciting.  A new form of presenting is emerging - a new format and a new genre. I call it speakery - and I've created a program that will help you master the dark art of presenting now and in a post-pandemic keynote world. You'll become a better screen version of yourself.

I will help you to:

  • write and craft better virtual presentations
  • keep an online audience engaged
  • shine in virtual Q&A sessions
  • delight virtual audiences with amazing on-screen performances.

BECOME A BETTER STAGE VERSION OF YOURSELF

Some day soon the pandemic-lockdown-hellscape will be over and we will be standing on stages again. Conferences, audiences and stages, however, will never be the same. Speakery is a format that dramatically and quickly improves your presentation skills - both on a stage and online. I work with people who want to:

  • craft better hybrid presentations that mix the best of virtual and real-life
  • impress investors
  • manage your stage fright
  • win pitches
  • delight audiences around the world

In April 2021 I founded a studio for speaker training in Munich. The studio is based on the out-skirts in Taufkirchen.

VIRTUAL OR LIVE - WHEN TO BOOK A SPEAKERY SESSION

I created the speakery format to help people dazzle and delight audiences, staff, customers, investors and shareholders with confident performances that are always on point - onstage or virtually online. If you're planning or taking part in one of the following things then we should talk:

  • Livestream event.
  • Virtual conference.
  • TED, TEDx, conference, trade fair.
  • Annual strategic kick-off, townhall.
  • New business pitch.
  • Venture capital/investment pitch.
  • Academic symposium.
  • International product launch.
  • Live television, media interviews.
Marcus is a genius when it comes to understanding people. In just a few moments he understood me and was able to reveal all my insecurities when it comes to presenting. He approached our session with humour, empathy and compassion. He highlighted certain habits of mine without it being embarrassing or uncomfortable and he gave advice that was personal and went far beyond simple presentation skills.

It only took a whiff of an idea to fuel Marcus’ brain. The rest was intuition. From the very first second, there is this proper sense of the situation and a high level of mutual understanding and empathy. Safeguarded in such a way it was easy letting oneself go and letting oneself drop, realizing that what you need for a successful presentation is.

Marcus’ ability to push you to your limits and still make you feel comfortable doing it is one of the many things I appreciated at the training. He has an eye for the small details that make a difference. The training helped me find strategies to work with my personality and bring out the best of it on stage.

WHAT IS SPEAKERY?

Hello, my name is Marcus John Henry Brown and I created the speakery format. I'm a performance artist and speaker trainer. I make performance art for business and conference stages.

I use everything I’ve learned from these performances to train people who want to be better performers, presenters, keynote speakers. People who want to get better at pitching and win more business book me too.

I’ve taught hundreds of speakers, teachers and academics, activists, politicians and business people the dark art of keynote speaking for both live and virtual events. I’ve ghostwritten speeches and created and scripted virtual events for some of the worlds biggest brands. I’ve helped win the odd multi-million Euro business pitch too.
