TAKE YOUR SPEAKING TO THE NEXT LEVEL
You've been given the opportunity to speak to a group of adults. Perhaps it's a weekend service at your church, or a midweek Bible study, or maybe a sales meeting or business presentation. Because you only have occasional exposure to speaking, you're good, but you want to get better. Or, maybe you speak every weekend, but you want a little tuneup.
BCI has been created with you in mind. We want to take current and emerging communicators to the next level in their speaking. Through lectures, on-site student presentations, and one-on-one dialogs, Bill Butterworth wants you to find your speaking voice so that you can be the teacher God designed you to be.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
BCI is an intensive three-day workshop designed to make you the best communicator you can be. Unlike other workshops, BCI is intentionally kept small in order to maximize personal attention to your speaking needs. Three days weave together a careful blend of:
Presentations by Bill Butterworth on the key issues of communication
Preparation and delivery of several presentations by each student to be given in front of the class and evaluated by Bill Butterworth and other class attendees
Videotaping each speech to aid in personal evaluation and progress
Spending one-on-one time with Bill Butterworth who will personally discuss how to find the most effective style for you
Bill Butterworth will be your instructor for this Institute. Since 1988, Bill has been speaking full time in major venues throughout North America. Bill is a regular at the weekend services of churches like Willow Creek Community Church and Saddleback Community Church. His corporate clients are as diverse as American Express, Walt Disney Company, Daimler Chrysler, and the National Football League.
Prior to speaking full time, Bill worked for Chuck Swindoll at Insight for Living. And prior to that, Bill taught at the college level for eight years, where he specialized in public speaking courses.
Bill holds a Master's Degree in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Master's Degree in Adult Education from Florida Atlantic University.
