You may recall in a previous blog post I shared a video conversation I had with Davide Di Giorgio who is affectionately known as The Unapologetic Speaker because he helps entrepreneurs to embrace themselves and become confident speakers by sharing authentically with their audience.  Here is a reminder of that blog post

Now Davide is coming out with his book ‘Being Unapologetic’, to spread his knowledge and wisdom further in order to make a difference and impact as many people who could do with his insights

 

In ‘Being Unapologetic’, Davide shares directly from his journey rather than a textbook on how he discovered his ‘own voice’ and how he relays his message to the world in an empowering way.

In a world where so many entrepreneurs are focussed on performance and results, Davide’s book re-orientates you to the core issues which will ultimately enable you to be more impactful if you embrace its teachings

I have had a sneak peek into Davide’s book. Here is some of what is covered:-

Across 3 parts, Davide covers the core issues of discovering your purpose, developing leadership and delivering your vision

The clue is in the word ‘being’ and so it’s no surprise that Davide starts with you, understanding who you are, discovering your own truth, embracing yourself, your gifts and talents in celebratory style

In the leadership part, Davide also addresses radical accountability, being unreasonable, taking a stand for what you believe in and embracing difference as normal.

Finally, he covers what it means to be truly unforgettable and unstoppable when it comes to delivering your vision

I like to use this as a framework to evaluate, tweak and adjust my own speaking, and my own reflection is to go beyond whether I am familiar with what I am reading to asking myself how well I apply the knowledge since this is what informs me of the areas that need my attention if I am to improve and grow in my own practice

Davide’s book takes an ‘inside-out’ approach and will give you much-needed clarity and confidence where your own voice and message are concerned, so that you can map out your own speaking journey going forward and share with greater ease and boldness.

Davide has also integrated another aspect of his mission which is dear to his heart, and that is the work with performing art students across the globe to help them develop authentically and to confidently express their gifts boldy without apology

With the forthcoming launch of his book on August 22nd there is an opportunity for everyone to benefit because the price will be only 99 cents, but if you are like me and prefer to thumb through a physical book you can pre-order below and get free international shipping for a while. Or order both and access helpful additional resources as a bonus.

Thank you Davide for being unapologetic and sharing your message and mission with the world

In my years of coaching and mentoring, so many of my clients still struggle when it comes to speaking, as part of their business. I have watched people literally freeze and cringe in front of a camera. I have witnessed many avoiding video talk due to feeling intimidated by technology. The most common feedback I receive is that many are concerned about how they are being perceived by their audience.

This is a real shame since many of those I speak with have an important message to share in line with their vision, yet feel relatively crippled when it comes to using their voice to spread their message. It is ultimately a form of self-sabotage.

When I did my TV Presenter’s course last year, I continued to experience something I commonly share in my coaching of others, and that is the importance of being yourself, rather than trying to perform. So let’s continue with a question.

What would happen if you could be yourself and communicate your message in such a way that combines authenticity with deep impact on your audience, that makes for an unforgettable experience?
