Effective Presentation Training

 Home / Seminars / Effective Presentations

In this day of high-tech, high-speed communication, it would be easy to assume that the need for powerful, effective face-to-face contact has diminished. That assumption would be wrong. Email, faxes, websites, cell phones and voice mail are no substitute for an engaging, persuasive, personal presentation. Whether for an audience of five or fifty or five hundred, if important decisions or big money is on the table, you must deliver your message in person and you must deliver it well.

Unfortunately, many people feel like they are at their worst when speaking in front of a group, even a small one. If you or someone on your staff fits into this category, our two-day Effective Presentation Training can be a life – as well as a deal – saver.

This highly interactive, hands-on program is the gold standard for presentation training. We go over all the basics – elocution, posture, pitch, tone, pace, etc. However, we also go deeper. We teach you the secrets of eye contact and body language that the pros use to add extra power to their words.

We help you understand the psychology of how to reach your key listeners – the ones who will make the final decision. But the best part is the personal coaching you receive from our professional staff as you work your way through a series of 10 digitally recorded practice sessions. These sessions allow you to practice new techniques as you learn them so that when you complete the course, you will have a final presentation assembled, polished and ready to go.
