J. Loren Norris is offering a special free public speaking workshop to five lucky college graduates.

June 13, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

“A recent survey by Adecco Staffing US shows 92 percent of 500 top executives polled
responded that there is a gap in job skills among job seekers and among them is
communicating, CNBC reports.” (source)

“People every day stand up and ask for help only to walk away with empty hands because they
cannot connect with the people to whom they wish to appeal. More sales have been lost, more
visions not embraced and more causes not joined due to poor communication than by any
other means. Good communication is an essential key to sales. Effective communication is also
an essential key to management, leadership and success in general and it is a skill to be
learned, practiced and mastered.” J Loren Norris

Failing to connect is the most tragic result of weak communication skills. The inability to
express empathy and emotion in public speaking or job interview can be devastating. Good
jobs are hard to find and improved communication skills are a great advantage for job seekers.

According to Mr. Norris, communicators can learn to connect better by employing a more effective use of personal stories. People relate to stories. People especially relate to stories that share a common emotion, even when the details or facts of the story are not familiar. But not all stories are created equal. Some stories are too long, some are too boring, some remain without a point, emotion or interest. “Good stories are brief, authentic, emotional, and poignant. Transform stories, transform lives.” Norris says.

Author, speaker and trainer, J Loren Norris has trained college students, executives, pastors
and even professional speakers to connect better with their audiences for more than fifteen
years. As a Dale Carnegie coach, a Certified John Maxwell Coach and Toastmasters
International World Championship of Public Speaking semi-finalist, Loren has developed the art
of story telling from a natural gift to an incredibly sharp tool for connecting and transferring life
changing leadership principles. Norris challenges, pushes and perfects the story selection,
story crafting and stage craft of every workshop attendee regardless of their background.

“I just attended a training led by Loren Norris. I’ve been a teacher and professor for a number of
years, and only thought I knew what it was to be a good teacher and communicator. Loren
takes things to a whole new level! He stretched me in ways I didn’t know I could be stretched. I
highly recommend Loren as a teacher of teachers!” – Dr. Paul Vickers

Scholarships will be awarded to five lucky 2014 graduates to attend a public speaking
workshop taught by award winning speaker and trainer J Loren Norris.
