When Jean Hamilton founded Speaking Results in 1998, it was the natural next step in her career. Early on, she began to develop and perfect her skills as a performer and artist, working for 15 years in modern dance, mime, and theater with various professional companies that toured extensively in the U.S. and Pacific Rim. After this successful career, Jean pursued a new direction studying Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). She was soon hooked by what this discipline could accomplish and began using the tools of NLP to make profound, positive changes. She pursued her NLP studies and training with the same fervor and energy she brought to the stage. In 1993, certified as an NLP Master, Jean opened her private counseling practice.
As satisfying as she found working one-on-one with clients, Jean realized that she liked being on stage and began to explore public speaking. She started this endeavor through a local chapter of the Toastmaster’s Club. She quickly began winning awards and trophies for both her humorous and poignant presentations, drawing on the rich material of her life. Jean soon graduated into the professional world of keynotes and National Speakers Association meetings, where she saw scores of the country’s best presenters.
Presentations like the pros
The more pros she watched, the more she realized how much her current work drew on the performance skills she had honed earlier in her dance and theater days. She saw how she could combine these skills with the personal development tools of NLP to create powerful and profound presentations. Jean recalls with real pleasure the “Aha!” moment when she realized that these skills could serve others as well, and Speaking Results was born.
Today, Speaking Results has helped hundreds of CEOs and CPAs, presidents and vice presidents, engineers and educators to overcome their fear of public speaking and improve their communication skills. Working with Jean, they have been able to develop their message, discover where they honestly connect to it, and deliver that message with presentation skills used by professional performers. Through Speaking Results, you can learn to do this too.
