Speaking skills lands John Graden on the Dr. Oz Show.
In support of my book, The Impostor Syndrome, I recorded and posted a short video on How to Build Self-Confidence on YouTube.
The next day, I was contacted by someone who said “I’m a friend of Dr. Oz. You’re an excellent speaker. People need to hear your message. I’m sure I can get you on the Dr. Oz Show.”
Six months later, my wife and I were in New York for my guest spot on The Dr. Oz Show.
I’ll teach you the speaking skills that put me in this picture.

High-Performance SPEAKING Coach
Some of the Schools I’ve Worked With
“John Graden is an excellent speaker and black belt level trainer.” – Brian Tracy
“John Graden’s presentation skills workshop was excellent. I loved it as did the other attendees I spoke with. He made learning fun with a great mixture of education and entertainment. I HAVE ATTENDED OTHER SUCH WORKSHOPS, AND HAVE RECEIVED ONE-ON-ONE COACHING, BUT JOHN’S WORKSHOP ADDED MUCH TO MY CONFIDENCE AND FUTURE ENJOYMENT OF SPEAKING, AND INTERACTING WITH OTHERS. I MORE THAN HIGHLY recommend it for any professional.” Alan Gassman, P.A.
“John Graden has an ability to connect in a one-on-one, hands-on manner that likely stems from his decades of martial arts instruction. He thoroughly engages everyone in the class which increases active participation by all. He introduces and reinforces the principles of his workshop in a way that is absent in typical lecture-style public speaking seminars. This unique style aids in the retention of the material and helps participants quickly incorporate what they learn. I wholeheartedly recommend John Graden’s speaking workshops.”
