I am very fortunate to be working
with you. With your help I've been
able to pull together a number of
very engaging and effective talks.
They have all gone far better than
I expected. I look forward to
continuing to work together.

What a difference! I wanted to
improve my ability to connect and
engage with very large audiences
(1000+ people). Not only did you
greatly increase my impact with
large groups, you also gave my
very valuable skills for any size
audience. Your process was very
effective and enjoyable.

Executive Public Speaking Development Program
For executives who know that being a dynamic speaker is a “must have” skill
This is a customized public speaking coaching program for executives who give important presentations. You work one-one-one with one of our professional speaking coaches who will tailor a program unique to your needs and interests. You will receive the specific feedback and tools you need to significantly shift your delivery and content, and become a dynamic speaker.
How does the program work?
Based on our initial conversation, we determine together what are the best topics from the list below. At the first session you will receive the Executive Speaking Development kit which is designed to provide you with all the tools you need to develop more relevant and memorable presentations. Included in the kit are 23 different presentation formats, a 40-topic color tip card series, articles on communications, a resource section covering subjects such as better PowerPoint and more than a dozen different tools you can use every time you put a presentation together.
What outcome can I expect?
Our goal is to cover topics that you can immediately apply to your presentations and therefore, receive noticeable value from the coaching time. We will help you to project your executive presence and deliver a message that inspires and leads others to action.
