Public Speaking

There is a common theme for every talk that I do, which revolves around influence and decision making. Tell me if this makes sense . . .

True Influence is when you inspire someone to Feel, Think, and Act. Our rationale for decision making combines emotion and fact. When you merge influence and decision making, it begins with emotion because it makes you feel, it’s validated by fact because it makes you think, and together they culminate in action.

Having spent 20 years in her own marketing company; and 11 years as a fundraising auctioneer, founder of The Auction Divas, Shelly St John has spent her lifetime learning how to read an audience and influence the way they react. Through the printed word and delivery of LIVE messages, Shelly’s focus is on understanding each audience, large or small and what motivates them to make decisions and take action.

“Understanding your audience, on a core level, helps you identify why each person is in front of you; why they care about what your ’re talking about; and why they don’t — key factors in getting closer to YES,” says Shelly.
