Desmond Byram is an author & Speech-versationalist who spells badly. His passion lies in painting speeches with verbal picture-like stories. He says public speaking is "a sort of painting with the voice." If you can't find him taking chef lessons, salsa classes or surfing on the weekend then there's a good chance he's practicing his favorite art at a speakers’ podium somewhere by either teaching students or being taught himself. His father let him join his first speaking school at age 11 and Desmond has since been a member of the National Speakers Association for several years.
Public Speaking & Communicating: Skip Theory, Master the Art
Speaking in front of an audience of any size will be one of the greatest thrills of your life (if done right) or it'll be a dread, the bane of your existence. People who hate public speaking the most are usually the very ones knowing the least about it. They hear from others that it's tough & scary so they start believing this. Those that ignore that lie, who embrace their message and audience are the ones that see public speaking for what it is: AMAZING!
Speaking to an audience trains you to talk your thoughts out with clear precision. The better you get, the better you’ll be at communicating exactly what your thinking & what you want others to know. Just imagine what being a clear communicator can do for your personal & professional life.
Once you take this journey through enhanced social ability you’ll never look back.
The Sparkwords method was designed to get at the root of developing speaking abilities through being the real you & caring about who you're talking to. Many speaking courses will teach quick, ineffective tips like “adjust your tone & be natural”. Well those ideas are too general, they don’t give us something specific to work on & they don’t focus on the most effective path to being the speaker you want to become and the speaker we need you to be.
To grossly oversimplify, this prescription will show you the heart of what you want to focus on when it comes to creating & delivering a great speech. It will also infuse heart into you to deliver the message in a way that touches our lives.
To define the Sparkwords method is to re-define public speaking. Simply said, it's a form of verbal painting. Sparkwords is an unwritten art that paints clear & simple word pictures with the voice.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, you now see how powerful the Sparkwords method is.
Verbal painting is simple and effective.
Sparkwords isn’t just another way to give a speech, or be a good public speaker through tricks & tips. No, with the Sparkwords method, you don’t give a speech, you take the message you wanted to give & then elegantly wrap it into a story that is quickly understood and never forgotten. You no longer speak/deliver a message, you become the message.
Enjoy the ride in the passenger seat of this course, because once you apply yourself to the Sparkwords method, in short time YOU will be your listeners future tour guide,
from the stage, you will take your audience on a journey of your choice that they’ll never forget.
If you're looking for quick tips, empty shortcuts & promises to make you an instant public speaking star without any effort on your part... Then there's a ton of courses out there for you (do I dare say most of them?) So skip this one.
If you want to truly fall in love with the art of Public Speaking in a sort of painting with the voice kind of way, then this just might be your ticket. My goal is to teach you how to do that, from the stage & with your voice and, as a result, take our minds on a journey we'll never forget.
The Sparkwords method I created is fast paced & intense, but jam-packed with just what you need to be able to speak in word pictures with clarity & with passion.
I designed the entire course to be remembered with one story. Also, the entire course is contained in this acronym: S.P.A.R.K.W.O.R.D.S
🙂 yeah, your catching on alright, the entire course can be spelled out with each letter that stands for a word picture in the course. I did this so that it could easily be recalled by anyone, no need for heavy indexes in a book. The Sparkwords method will build triggers in your memory so you can recall ideas with simple word pictures.

Many public speaking courses regurgitate the same old stuff. The kind of things that are common sense and really don't take you any further forward. THIS course is completely different. It approaches the topic in a far more useful way and provides genuinely useful information – not waffle or theory, but real stuff that you can put into practice straight away. The course is delivered in a style that is easy to follow and is actually entertaining as well as educational, which makes the learning experience a pleasant one throughout. If you want to take your public speaking to a whole new level than I highly recommend this course.
