LarsonEd’s Mini Public Speaking Tutorial Part 1

LarsonEd’s Mini Public Speaking Tutorial Part 1


Welcome to part 1 in Florida real estate school Larson Educational Services’ 3-part series on successful public speaking!

Florida real estate school

Public speaking is a necessary skill for every professional, but real estate professionals especially must be adept speakers because garnering trust and confidence will help you increase your sales. In this part we are going to focus on the eye and how successful public speakers present themselves visually.

The Eye Factor

  1. The first step to establishing trust and credibility is to “speak” to the listeners’ eyes. Choreograph what they SEE!
    • Dress appropriately. Concentrate especially around the face and the feet
    • Arrive at least 30 minutes early
    • Double check to be sure that supplies and equipment are in place and working
    • Use the wide felt-tipped markers (primarily blue and black) to write your name on the whiteboard
    • List the schedule on the board, including break times

  1. Upright posture and natural movement convey confidence. Stand tall with shoulders back and stomach in. Practice standing in the “ready” position – lean forward, flex knees, balls of your feet, hands and arms forward.
    • Exude confidence when you greet people. Look in their eyes
    • Make friends with the back row
Florida Real Estate School

  1. Smile a warm smile and use open gestures as you lay out the ground rules.
    • Start the presentation on time
    • Welcome the audience and introduce yourself. Answer the question “Why should I listen to you?”
    • Make sure everyone is “on the right plane”

Follow this advice to better present yourself  as an adept public speaker. Check back next time for part 2!

About Larson Educational Services:
Family-owned and operated Florida real estate school Larson Educational Services has had its doors open in Fort Myers since November 2008, but the beginnings of the business date back to the 1970's.

Rick Larson,  Larson Educational Services co-founder and manager, opened a real estate education company in 1979 in St. Paul, Minnesota, called PROSOURCE Educational Services. The business grew to include real estate, mortgage, appraisal, insurance, securities, contractor, home inspection and computer education.

In 2001, Rick, along with his partner, Joe Coyne, sold the business to Kaplan Professional Schools, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Washington Post. 

He and his instructors have assisted more than 500,000 professionals to pass their exams and achieve their career goals in real estate, real estate appraisal, residential construction, insurance and mortgage loan origination. 

In 2007, two of Rick's five sons, David and Brad Larson, approached Rick and talked of starting up a family-owned education company. The only place they talked of operating the business was in Southwest Florida where they had spent countless winter breaks vacationing from school.

After finding a great location to build two classrooms in  Royal Palm Square Shopping Center in Fort Myers in early 2008, Larson Educational Services offered its first Florida Real Estate Licensing class in November 2008, and has since added many new classes and has become very involved in all of the Southwest Florida communities. In March 2010, the Larson's expanded by adding an additional classroom location at  Horseshoe Park of Commerce in Naples, just North of the Naples Municipal Airport, and in February 2011, the Larson's began offering courses in Sarasota at the  SpringHill Suites, across the street from the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.

Have you seen the new photos of Pluto from the New Horizons spacecraft?
There seems to be some sort of heart shape on the distant dwarf planet, along with some other very interesting graffiti.
Looks like we're loved all the way to the distant reaches of the solar system.
