Ready to audition?
Do you have a passionate, compelling, heartfelt or funny story you’d like to share? Then it’s time for you to audition! Auditions for our upcoming Walk the Talks are typically 4 to 6 weeks before the scheduled event date. You will audition with 25 other speakers. We ask for you to prepare a 10 minute memorized speech/story based on the topic we’ve chosen, what you feel about it, and/or how it has influenced your life. If you’d like to use a PowerPoint slide show please bring it to auditions on a thumb drive.
Your audition will be at a select location, which you will be informed of. Auditions will be closed, with the only you and the judges. When we judge your speech we look for passion, knowledge of the subject, ability to deliver your speech, the “through-line”, commitment, if it has that “sticky” factor, if your speech has a message, and the ‘wow’ factor. (That ‘wow’ factor can be defined by a speech unlike any other, and, where the speaker leaves a bit of themselves on the stage.)
After auditions, we choose 6 people for each event. If you are chosen, your commitment to Walk the Talk will include one tech and one dress rehearsal prior to the event date. Plus we have an intimate group dinner before each Walk the Talk. Everyone has a heartfelt story in them, our goal is to help you bring it out!
