A huge thank you to Keith Scott of TALLspeaking-public speaking made easy for coming out to help our loaned executives yesterday at our training. Keith is a public speaking rockstar!

“As a pageant girl, the ability to speak confidently and eloquently in front of other is absolutely essential. Even after one session working with Keith, I was able to see a major improvement in my level of comfort and ability to communicate effectively. Keith is fun to work with and makes you feel at ease! He is an excellent coach and I would recommend him to anyone looking to significantly improve their public speaking skills– regardless of the field of application.”

In just one easy session, I walked away with the perfect “pitch”…
Keith helped me to toss out the “old” way of speaking, and made it simple and to the point!

Keith’s honesty, sense of humor, and interactive conversational style motivate his audience in a really fun way. I originally met Keith through the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, and I’ve seen him speak at several different networking events. I have been so impressed each time! He helps you shake the fear of public speaking and uses a no-holds-barred approach to do so. His attitude about living life authentically, particularly in business, is refreshing!

MaryBeth Furman – United Way

When I attended my first TALLspeaking seminar, I was so nervous. I thought to myself, “Not another public speaking class!”, as I told my boss how excited I was to attend. I couldn’t believe how interactive and fun the seminar was! Not only did I pick up on some great tips and tricks of public speaking but I also learned how to be comfortable in front of a group of strangers. Keith does an amazing job in getting the group to actively participate throughout the seminar. I was so impressed with his presentation that I recommended to our CEO for Keith to come in to do not just 1 but 2 seminars for our credit union. Keith’s first seminar was on Intrapersonal Communication, the entire staff attended. The second seminar was on Public Speaking for our supervisors and leaders of our organization. I have received an incredible amount of positive feedback from the staff. Each staff member was enthusiastically engaged while Keith was presenting. It was truly a pleasure to work with Keith and he is remarkably good at teaching Communication skills. I highly recommend TALLspeaking, I promise that everyone at all levels of your organization will benefit from this seminar!

Keith Scott is able to motivate an audience and inspire even the most shy to conquer their fear of presenting. Through improv games and interactive conversation, Keith captured everyone’s attention while speaking at our Marketing Association meeting.
-Jenifer Rawlings – Student at Towson University

I participated in Keith Scott’s “Say It! The Art of Presenting” class at United Way’s Emerging Leaders conference last year. I was so impressed with the way he made me think about my own communications that I knew he could help me take my presentation skills to the next level.

In my first session, Keith accurately pointed out my areas improvement in a way that was digestible. He gave me easily applicable tips and tools on how to change my bad habits. They paid off immediately. I now meet with Keith whenever I have a big presentation on the horizon so we can prepare and plan my remarks based on my audience. I am much more confident and effective since working with Keith. As a fundraiser, I have seen a direct correlation between an increase in donations and my presentations since taking lessons from Keith.

I wholeheartedly recommend Keith Scott to help improve and polish any speaker’s presentation skills.

MaryBeth Hyland

I just gave several presentations at a national conference (one was even live-streamed) and am so grateful for the preparatory boot-camp that Keith put me through was immensely helpful!! I ponder and ponder and then talk with my hands…Keith asks me 200 hard questions for me to answer so that I can get to the point. I got such great feedback for my presentations and I have Keith to thank!!! Thanks Keith!!

“Like many, Keith Baird Scott doesn’t let his 6’9″ frame intimidate.” I recently met with Keith for help with an important meeting with media executives. Keith not only used his expertise to identify potential pitfalls but he also provided viable solutions. Keith also shared important tips to relating to my audience in a naturally seamless manner. Whether you’re a new public speaker or a seasoned professional, EVERYONE can benefit from a Keith Baird Scott consultation.

With his height and bow tie, Keith Baird Scott is impressive even before he speaks. As our keynote speaker for our Certificate Award Ceremony, he quickly engaged the audience and involved them in learning new skills while having a lot of fun. Speaking on one of his favorite subjects of presentation skills, he put the audience at ease with a topic that usually puts fear in their hearts.

In front of an audience or one-on-one, Keith is personable, knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend Keith and his bow tie to you for your next event.

Speaking in public is something I have done regularly throughout my career. I was always proficient and received good feedback for my efforts. Over the past few years, other activities had taken me away from public speaking opportunities. More recently, I had been approached about speaking in public in a few different forums. Having accepted a few of these engagements but feeling rusty, I turned to Keith Scott to help me get back to my old form. Keith and I worked together over a period of three weeks. Keith concentrated on my body language, the range of my voice and the quality of my support materials. After working with Keith’s easy style and effective methods, my confidence grew immensely. I recently gave my first public presentation since working with Keith and I hit the ball out of the park. During the presentation, I was able to get “into the zone” enabling me to give one of the best speeches I have ever delivered in my 30 year career. This was reinforced by overwhelmingly positive feedback from my audience. I highly recommend Keith Scott to both experienced and aspiring public speakers to help get you to the next level.

” If you desire to receive top-notch, interactive, and thought-provoking information to enhance your presentation skills, then sign up for Keith Scott’s class. I experienced Keith’s class during a recent conference and the 1-hour session was too short! I absolutely loved every minute of the session and, most importantly, I was able to immediately apply those skills to my career”.

When you have the pleasure of attending a session hosted by Keith Scott, he truly makes a lasting impression. Keith has a unique way of grabbing the audience’s attention, engaging them in an entertaining and effective manner. As a co-sponsor of the 2011 BBJ Fall Business Growth Expo on November 3, 2011, SECU was fortunate to have Keith Scott lead the break-out session of, “Conquering Your Networking Fears: Ace the Network Event.”

Keith’s expertise, honesty and charm had all 100+ attendees laughing, attentive and retaining valuable information. After the session we were flooded with compliments, and received rave reviews of the presentation.

SECU was extremely proud to partner with Keith on this occasion. We plan to utilize Keith in upcoming corporate events, as he adds incredible value and can speak to individuals at all levels. We are sincerely thankful to Keith Scott for this opportunity and look forward to seeing him again soon.

I run a team of Financial Representatives in Hunt Valley, MD for a company called National Financial Legacy Group. Anyone in this business will tell you that effective prospecting is key to success. The day after the workshop I received a call from one of my Representatives stating that he had applied what he learned to his daily routine. The results were so good that he stated the workshop was the single most effective class we had provided our firm. As a person that teaches prospecting and marketing to new advisors, I can say this was without question one of the most interesting and effective classes I have attended. Highly recommended!

I really appreciate what you have done for my team. Thanks.

hired Keith as a Career Coach in 2011
“I have to say the experience was 400% better than I ever expected it would be. I felt lost and overwhelmed in the story I was trying to tell and he managed to help me focus and build excitement into the message in a mere hour and half. He was earnest, engaged and truly invested in my success. What else can you ask from someone whom you’ve just met? What are you waiting for? Book him!” May 10, 2011

I met with Keith just a few days before my emceeing experience and he was such a great help! He helped me put things into perspective concerning microphone use, voice tone, speed, and much more! I’ve been emceeing for years, but you can never learn enough! Thanks so much for the tips, Keith! I’m definitely coming back for another session/tune-up before my next experience!

Keith’s approach integrates improvisation, acting and professional speaking into a fun and engaging session. I have spent my entire life dreading speeches, introductions and networking, but with a few short sessions with Keith I have coping techniques to allow me to confidently represent myself and company in any setting.

1st Katrina Wilson,
hired Keith as a Speech Mentor in 2010, and hired Keith more than once

“To say Keith Scott is a driven and energetic teacher is a harsh understatement. Speech is undoubtedly a passion of Keith’s; whether you see him in a personal or professional venue his talent is evident. Keith Scott is one of those rare individuals who have the gift to inspire and educate, he is an astounding resource with immense compassion and understanding. Keith’s commitment to education is beyond compare and as his student, I can assure you will have Keith’s full devotion at all times; he is truly an amazing mentor. Keith recognizes the value of your time and will make the most of it; you will walk away from every consultation having learned something new. Keith’s guidance and instruction have helped many, including myself, develop skills and abilities which have permitted us to surpass all performance expectations and grow as individuals. As a speech mentor, Keith is attentive and inspiring, he will never let you settle for anything other than excellence and will show you opportunities you never dreamed possible for yourself.” May 6, 2011
