"The Effective Presentations course was wonderful! It really shows how to make an effective presentation that is useful. The techniques are simple but the results are outstanding. I will be happy to recommend this unique course to anyone, just have them call me."

Pat E. Murdock, Director of International Sales, Sales Tool - Houston, Texas

"I cannot say enough about the effectiveness of the three sessions that were conducted that week. I trust that Steve and Kristine receive my hand-written thank you and description of how much value they brought to the group. I am still continuing to receive phone calls from some of the participants with testimonials of 'that was the best time spent in one day that I have had in a long time'.

Aside from developing their skills as an effective presenter, often more valuable, they realized how lacking they were in their skills and recognized that this was being done in front of the customer….scary! Although I don’t believe most of it, I think they are a good group and the represent some of our best sales folks we have.

I want to thank you as well for all the coordination and arrangements that you made. You are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to more and more in the future.
Jayme Sperring, Corp. Sales Operations Mgr. , National Oilwell Varco

"The class and my experience with the Baker staff were outstanding! The immediate, interactive feedback really helped me."
Kalim Sawires, Services Sales Executive, Dell - Round Rock, Texas

"The instructors were very knowledgeable, interesting, and supportive. The video-taping of the presentations and feedback were great."
Elyn Bastien, Sales Manager, Dell - Round Rock, Texas

"No Comments on the course. It was EXCELLENT. But now I am realizing, that everything we were taught, is in everyday life. I.E. the Airline Stewardess in the Power Stance and gesturing the exit rows, the Price is Right girls with the open hand gestures, I was watching a video about Austin TX on their website and they had the Power Stance and hand gestures down. So, now after the course I am watching everybody. It Is Addicting."

Kent K. Anderson, Instructor , Accubid - Houston, Texas

"I really appreciated the class. The instructors adapted well to your audience, had great content and the delivery skills are enviable. You are where I want to be and this course gave excellent training and take away tools that are simple, adaptable and repeatable.  It‘s kind like Golf. You provided the equipment, training in the form, and ball delivery techniques. Now it‘s practice, practice, practice with focus on minimizing the weak points and enhancing the good. I‘m usually not a big talker, so I was surprised at how I have to squeeze my stuff down so I don‘t get caught droning on. A golf analogy might be like taking way too many practice swings before hitting the ball. "

Chris Corcoran, Operations Manager , Houston, Texas

"I liked the repeated taping and positive feed back, the instructors also know the material very well and use it with great flexibility."

Josh Walters, Geophysics, Conoco Phillips - Houston, Texas

"I liked the recording and practicing and reviewing. The instructor was flawless."

David Parks, Project Manager, Praxair, Inc. - Houston, TX

"I liked the learning new tricks. I will most likely take another course. The instructor was very pleasurable to work with."

Steve Austin, Director of Sales, Avocent - Austin, TX

"I liked the how they explained how to better present, very good stuff. Shelby did a fantastic job."

Austin Harrison, Well Control Trainer, Chevron Texaco - Houston, TX

"I liked the tape plus reviewing it. Good to see yourself on tape. The instructor was very professional plus very good."

Chris Dahlberg, Sales Associate Dell, Inc., Round Rock, Texas

"I liked the interaction and videos, as well as feedback. Peggy was excellent and outgoing."

William Behler, Sales manager, Dell, Inc., - Round Rock, Texas 78682  

"I liked the recordings, the one on one feed back. Bridget‘s styles were honest feedback. I would recommend my staff and trainers."

Maryann Smith, Project Manager, Maximus, Houston, Texas

"The recording was the most powerful tool, a picture is worth a thousands words! The instructor was very positive."

Jeff Brienen, District Engineer , Unocal - Sugar Land, Texas
