Just Because You’re An Expert…
Doesn’t Make You Interesting
Inspiring People to Act on Your Ideas
“Remember, you’re more interested in what you have to say than anyone else is.”
– Andy Rooney
It sums up what so many content experts struggle with; they confuse being knowledgeable with being interesting. Consequently, their important conversations and presentations are delivered in uninteresting ways diminishing their influence on listeners. My workshop Just Because You’re an Expert…Doesn’t Make You Interesting solves this problem.
Just Because You’re an Expert…Doesn’t Make You Interesting speaker development program is available as private one-on-one coaching, small group live workshops, and large group seminars. The content and duration of the coaching are customized to your specific needs. The outcome of this program is developing your ability to say what’s important in compelling ways that listeners remember, are influenced by, and act on.
Dr. Paul Homoly, CSP
I hold the highest earned designation in professional speaking – Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) – from the National Speakers Association. I am the first dentist worldwide to earn this distinction.
I have written two books on the topic of becoming an interesting expert; Just Because You’re Leading …Doesn’t Mean They’ll Follow and Just Because You’re an Expert…Doesn’t Make You Interesting. This is important to you because the content in my books are gleaned from the hundreds of hours I’ve spent in classrooms coaching experts. You can have confidence in my coaching process.
I practice what I preach. I make a good portion of my income from speaking at meetings and hosting workshops. This is not a hobby; it’s the real deal for me and can be for you too.
I have a 20 plus years successful track record as a speaker development coach and thought leader. I’ve personally experienced most speaking situations and coached an incredibly wide range of experts

With one-on-one coaching you and I will work on your specific content, stagecraft, and rehearsal. This coaching can be done live at a location of your choice or via Zoom video conferencing.
Small Group Workshops
Small group workshops are usually one to two-day events. Typically, I limit enrollment of Just Because You’re an Expert…Doesn’t Make You Interesting to 15 full-participation attendees. As a full-participation attendee, you’ll present content you develop as part of the workshop experience. You’ll present in front of the room while I personally coach you. I take great pride in developing a safe and supportive coaching environment where you’ll be able to access the best version of yourself.
I offer limited-participation enrollment if you’re not quite ready to get in front of the room for coaching. As a limited participation attendee, you’ll attend the workshop as an observer and join in workshop discussions, but no front of the room speaking | coaching | peer evaluations or videotaping. There is no limit to the number of limited participation attendees.

Large group seminars are well suited for study clubs, associations, and corporate events. The program duration can be from 90 minutes to three hours. Like one-on-one coaching and small group workshops, the content and duration of seminars are customized to your group’s needs.
