Judy Carter is bringing part of her The Message of You workshop to New York City! In this two-day workshop, you will learn the following:

- Day One: Saturday, April 26, 2014 -

Finding "The Message of You" in the Smaller Stories of Your Life
Every day of your life is full of stories. In this segment, you will learn to connect these seemingly minute moments to universal messages and larger themes. Using improvisational skills, you’ll learn how to think on your feet and use your intuition to find new stories and explore quick ways to turn the smaller stories of your life into inspiration and entertainment.

Finding Your Heart Story & Eureka Moment
To really connect with an audience, you have to be willing to reveal your vulnerability, open your heart, and share your most life-changing moments. Judy will help you find those stories, and show you how to use them to touch other people’s hearts with your message. Also in this workshop, you'll learn how your Heart Story can be the foundation of a book, television project, movie, or cross platform opportunities.

Compelling Story Structure
Telling your story requires more than a chronological list of events. It requires a basic knowledge of dramatic story structure in order to hold an audience’s attention. In this workshop, you’ll get a fast primer on structure but also learn some secrets to keep your listeners on the edge of their seats.

Finding the Funny
Getting laughs isn’t always about telling jokes. Here Judy will take the stories that you have been working on all day to find the character “act-outs,” exaggerations, and the “what ifs…” to show you how to get laughs in even the most dramatic of stories.

- Day Two: Sunday, April 27, 2014 -

"The Message of You" Speaking Workshop
Judy will show you how to build a speech based on The Message of You. Using timed writing prompts, you will write the first draft of the full version of your speech using Judy Carter’s Six Step Template. Partner work and guidance will provide support during this intense but effective process.

Your Opening – Getting an Audience to Love You in 17 Seconds
Can you relate to the problems of your audience? Can you even convince them that they have a problem in the first place? In this on-your-feet workshop, you’ll have to win the votes of your peers to prove you “get” the problem. In this writing intensive, you’ll uncover the methodology you used to solve your own problems and then create a series of Action Steps that can be taught to your audience as well as be used as the chapters of your book.

Finding Your Credential Story
To be a commercial success and prove yourself to the audience, you need a story illustrating your capabilities as a leader, healer, teacher, guide, and helper. In this writing workshop, we capture the story of how we have affected another person’s life.

Your Heart Story and Call-to-Action
This is where you tell your "mess-to-success" story that opens hearts to your message as well as giving your audience a powerful, yet simple action they can do to be successful.

Marketing Primer on Making a Living from Speaking Your Message
Joining Judy will be a VIP guest (speaker agent, meeting planner, and/or book editor) who will give you a step-by-step instruction on how to negotiate a contract and turn free gigs into "fee" gigs.
