BRINGING THE SKILLS & ENERGY
OF LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE TO THE WORLD OF BUSINESS & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
DESTROY THE STAGE
Destroy The Stage is a Keynote that will turn your conference into a performance and your employees into performers. Luther shows business professionals a new perspective on presentation skills using music performance as a metaphor. This is a unique kind of business training for your employees that will help them develop strong presentation skills rooted in confidence and self-belief, all while team building and bonding with their colleagues.
As a Live Music Performance Coach, Luther’s goal is to help companies and organizations equip their employees with rockstar-level stage presence. Stage presence is the skill of commanding attention and influencing an audience. This is the master skill of great Artists and it’s untapped in the world of business. Whether it’s leading team meetings, communicating with co-workers and clients, prospecting, pitching, selling, managing teams or conducting presentations, we are constantly presenting ourselves to others.
However, most people are trapped in overthinking and obsessive judgment when they present themselves. Luther's approach to performance focuses on the psychology of reprogramming people’s brains to find the confidence, energy and guts to take risks and express themselves authentically in their careers. It's about breaking down the fear walls that are holding them back from accessing the most expressive versions of themselves.
Luther teaches the expressive stage skills of voice, movement, story telling, audience engagement, and focus to unlock self-expression. This is how we summon the peak performance state Artists refer to as “The Moment”.
Luther starts by uncovering common audience fears and insecurities that are holding people back from being fearless presenters, speakers and sellers at work and in their lives. He then begins implementing different performance methods. These techniques focus on breaking down fear walls, accessing self expression, building confidence and taking risks. Luther challenges attendees to participate in an impromptu Talent Show and Corporate Karaoke to put these stage presence methods to the test in real- time. Luther can help you launch your business, grow your business and take your business to the next level.
“Having worked with thousands of Artists over the past 10 years, I have created successful methods and practices that have changed the way people present themselves on stage, in business and in life. I want to show your employees the same skills of stage presence I’ve taught to world-class Artists to help them command attention and influence people” - Luther
"I've never seen an entire audience of non-musicians sing a Phil Collins
song together at a business conference. That was wildly freeing and therapeutic"
- Len Davies| DTS Toronto, 2023
"A big part of my work in performance and self-expression is reminding people that they are amazing even if they have forgotten this. My TEDx Talk is a reminder to be fearless in your self-expression because it makes you an Artist.
Everyone is an Artist when they choose to share and risk rejection for the chance at connection" - Luther Mallory | Live Music Performance Coach | Entrepreneur | Artist | Keynote Speaker
"I had never considered accenting my stronger qualities to
differentiate myself. This changes how I pitch to clients and communicate in general"
- Jan Cleary| MYK Chicago, 2022
What I show Business Professionals is how to root into the moment to control overthinking and overwhelm when performing. It's the work I've done with 1000+ Artists and Performers over the last 10 years for the acclaimed JUNO Masterclass, CMI's Artist Entrepreneur Program, in private rehearsals across the continent, and virtually across the world.
I got my start coaching Artists and Performers because I spent 10 years on tour in a band, sleeping in a van with 6 other guys in the West Edmonton Mall parking lot in Canadian January. I played 1000 shows across North America and developed performance methods to deal with the mental, emotional, and spiritual barriers that kept me trapped in overthinking and obsessive judgment on stage, instead of in the moment with the audience and connected to my art. Then I started teaching my methods to other Artists and it made a dramatic difference in how they felt on stage and how they connected with their audiences. After years of working with Artists, I brought these skills over to the world of business. Being an entrepreneur and business owner, I've seen so many professionals struggle with accessing who they are and being conflicted about how to present themselves in the corporate world.
My Keynote Talks are my opportunity to show Business Professionals the skills I've taught to world-class Performers for a decade, and to do it while challenging the audience, and myself, to take risks, get on stage or stand up in your seat, and show us your fearless self-expression.
