Winning Presence for Speakers and Trainers

How to Present Yourself Powerfully to Anyone, Anywhere!


This session will give anyone who speaks, presents, presents themselves, voices opinions, leads, persuades, or negotiates the instant ability to be authentic and confident under make-or-break moment pressure!

Best-selling Author, Filmmaker and Spy-Trainer, Dean Hyers has built a profitable business teaching the skills of WINNING PRESENCE to business presenters, but it didn't happen all at once. Learn how Dean, a former business partner of Mike Koenigs, created a business with legs using one skill that was initially hard to market without a track record. During this session he will reverse-engineer principles and processes that put him on the map and positioned him ideally to use the Author Expert Marketing Machines, which he used to build:

  • International speaking that pays
  • Coaching and training clients that do annual retainers
  • Products that create passive revenue
  • A train-the-trainer program that extends the value through others who pay to join
  • An Amazon #1 best-selling book in three categories

Dean will share how he interconnects multiple revenue streams to get clients to pay him more than triple their allotted budget. And he'll share his successes with the Author Expert Marketing Machines, being the current record-holder of the fastest trip to #1 Best Seller status – less than 24 hours from conceiving an AEMM campaign to hitting the top.

This engaging session will guide you through the keys of managing mind, heart, and body to communicate powerfully and genuinely under duress, fully covering:

  • The 3 Keys of Presenting
  • Compelling Connections with Anyone or Any Audience
  • Making "Chemistry" with the people you speak to
  • Structuring messages that say what you want to say powerfully
  • Everything you need to know to be dynamic and engaging in the delivery
  • What next, now that you have connection, chemistry, message, and dynamism

Dean Lincoln Hyers is a film director who became a spy-trainer, and then coached over $2 billion in winning competitive sales presentations using movie-set skills. Dean helps professionals instantly find their winning presence when they present under pressure, even if terrified, unprepared, or not favored to win. Dean began making full-length movies as a teenager and became an entrepreneur in his twenties, directing electronic promotions for Hollywood blockbusters like GodzillaJumanji and Die Hard III. Dean put the first CD-ROM in a Rolling Stones Magazine and the first computer game in a cereal box. Selling Digital Café to Campbell Mithun Advertising in 1999, Dean returned to the director's chair with his debut feature, Bill's Gun Shop, released through Warner Bros. In 2001, Dean was then hired by the US Government to train undercover agents in acting skills for deep cover operations, after which Dean was inspired to apply his expertise to speaking and to helping business professionals manage stage fright. Now a #1 Best-Selling Author with WINNING PRESENCE for Business Presenters, Dean speaks internationally as he continues to write and develop independent movies.
