New Speech Breakdown for the 2001 Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking, Darren LaCroix!

Darren LaCroix delivered the most humorous speech I've analyzed to date. Not only that, he combined that humor to form one of the most complex speeches I've ever dissected. You do not want skip this one! 

Each breakdown I do brings with it a new technique or perspective that differs from the rest, and that's what makes them so useful if your goal is to become a better speaker or speech writer.

There is a tremendous amount of insight in reverse-engineering a world class speech such as this one. And each one provides a wealth of information.

The speech may look seamless to an audience, but it didn't get to be that way by chance. This speech is built from many different components, and knowing what those components are will give you the knowledge to build your own.

Here's a sample of what's inside:

  • ​Full speech transcript
  • Speech statistics (Word count, time of speech, title)
  • Humor Statistics (Laughs Per Minute and Words Per Laugh)
  • Use of "You" focused words versus "I/Me" focused words
  • Foundational Phrase + how often it was used
  • Time Transitions
  • Stories
  • Stage Movement
  • And much more plus an in-depth speech analysis!

Matt Kramer - Tactical Talks - Public Speaking

Howdy! My name is Matt Kramer and I used to suffer excruciating death when speaking in front of a group, now I LOVE it. Overcoming this fear has changed my life and it can change yours, too. My focus is to help you overcome the fear of public speaking so you can build the confidence to go after what you want in life. I also analyze and tactically dissect speeches.
