Public Speaking Course

On Monday, October 12, 2015 (Columbus Day)

In NYC, at a gorgeous, contemporary theater, join us for an exclusive, one-off live event where Michael will show you how to become a much better performer. This exclusive masterclass is for the world-changers: those of you who are committed to influencing your audience and being a better performer both on-stage and out in the world.

Normally, an event like this would be an investment of $2000 (and worth every penny, we might add), but for this one-time event, you are guaranteed a seat for $199 - AND we’ll give you TEN FREE HARDCOVER copies of Michael’s new book, Steal The Show, just as a thank you for attending.

But that’s not all … keep reading …


When you choose to attend the Steal the Show Book Tour Masterclass,
you will leave knowing all of this and more. Absolutely guaranteed.

(If you don’t, Michael said he’ll lick the soles of your shoes to do penance.)

Join Michael in NYC and you will:

  • Have full command of your audience. They’ll be hanging on your every word, even if they don’t know you from Adam! That means you can get them doing what you want, when you want.
  • Give a performance, not a speech, so you get a rousing round of applause when you’re done, and you’ll get rave reviews from the entire room.
  • Do away with PowerPoint and put down the clicker that fires bullet points and kills speeches. Instead, make every speech a gripping, pre-planned-yet-spontaneous improvisation.
  • Leverage the “rules” of high-level performance and know which rules to break – and HOW to break them for maximum effect.
  • Construct your story from a series of smaller stories, each one with a payoff that satisfies and delights your adoring fans.
  • Have them laughing in the aisles … even if you’re not known for your sense of humor. Audiences love an emotional rollercoaster. Getting them laughing is crucial, even if your story is a sad one.
  • Use Hollywood secrets to crafting compelling cliffhangers so that your audience doesn’t have any choice but to give you their undivided attention.
  • Earn love and respect from the audience BEFORE YOU EVEN SET FOOT ON STAGE. After all, if they don’t like you from the get-go, you’ve got a lot of catching up to do!
  • Make every audience member an important part of the story, whether you’ve got 4 or 4,000 people in the room. When they’re fully invested, they’ll play full out … and make more investments.
  • LEAVE OUT the most important parts of your speech, so that your audience can fill in the gaps and make your story come alive for them. (It’s the secret to being “everything to everybody”).
  • Use skits and bits that bring stories to life and entertain.
  • Structure your material so that your audience would rather pee their pants than go to the bathroom and miss even one second of your presentation.
  • Use ethical, emotional and logical persuasion tactics to move audiences to take action.
  • Exploit structural, emotional and delivery contrast to create a fast moving, entertaining and educational event.
  • Leverage interaction with your audience so they’re engaged and feel part of the experience.
  • Find stories to tell and narrate numbers so your words are emotional and visual for the greatest impact.
  • Create a winning combination of scripting and outlining so your structure flows effortlessly and you never forget where you are—and if you do, it’ll be easy to get right back on track.
  • Sound big, bold and powerful using voice techniques known by only the best-trained actors and singers.
  • Rehearse like the pros—rehearsal is the key to success and if you don’t know how to do it right, you won’t do it at all.
  • Observe everything going on around you while you’re performing like a highly trained actor (this is the actor’s 6th sense).
  • Pick the best audience members who’ll support and encourage you and how to conquer and own the naysayers and troublemakers like the stand up comedian.
  • Answer questions and take Q&A like a pro, answering every question individually and collectively so everyone benefits and gets value.
  • Use props to influence and visualize a story—they’ll also difference you from all the other typical “public speakers.”
  • Handle nerves pre-show so you’re confident and compelling.
  • Stop using the same unnecessary, typical and boring opening and closings used by every other untrained speaker (truth is even the most experienced speakers use this to their detriment).
  • Find your own special, unique and exciting speaking style. Not everyone is like Tony Robbins (nor should they be). You can turn in a Meryl Streep quality speech standing in one place and speaking softly.
  • Get a standing ovation EVERY SINGLE TIME. Seriously. No joke.


Do you speak on stage or need to persuade or influence your clients, coworkers or stakeholders out in the real world? Then this event is for you.

Can you afford to spend $199 to be a better public speaker and performer? Of course you can.

If getting to NYC seems tough, then toughen up. The performer will do anything and everything - whatever it takes - to share their message with their audience.

Get a flight, take a road trip, share a hotel room, crash on someone’s floor. Just get to NYC. You’ll be glad you did.

Book more speaking gigs

Being able to perform is just one part of the equation. You’ve got to be able to get booked to speak if you want to carry your message around the world to the people who are meant to hear it.

Only at this special Steal the Show NYC Masterclass will you get to ask your questions of two of the best in the business. Mike and Dori will share the strategies and techniques that got them booked solid as professional speakers for the biggest companies in the world including Google, Microsoft and hundreds of others.

Don’t Take Our Word For It …

Scott Stratten, UnMarketing Inc.

"I've been a professional speaker for years. I make my living doing it and believed you were either born to do it or not. Then I witnessed Michael coaching someone on speaking. I saw a transformation from an average presenter to a star on stage. I couldn't believe it. I would pay just to watch that happen again. Michael was put on this earth to transform people."

Yancey Unequivocally, Founder Empowered Presentations!

"Michael Port is the best public speaking coach I've ever seen. I should know because I'm in the business of creating visuals for the top speakers in the industry. Everyone should invest their time to attend."

Jordan Harbinger, Co-Founder of the Art of Charm

"Michael cuts to the core of what you actually need to get ridiculously good at speaking and performing, and the results are even more dramatic than I'd envisioned (and I'm a tough customer at this point).

No tricks, just legit results that ensure that I'm the most popular speaker at every event—which has been great for business. I now speak all over the world from the Pentagon, Afghanistan, India and Europe as well as the largest business conferences. I can safely say that this would frankly NEVER have happened if it weren't for Michael and his team. "

Jayson Gaignard, Founder of
