Presentation Skills Training
Ed Barks wrote the book about speaking in public — quite literally. It’s titled The Truth About Public Speaking: The Three Keys to Great Presentations.
Put Ed’s expertise on your side as you prepare to deal with the wide range of audiences you might encounter.
There’s more to delivering an effective presentation than mere words. Your public speaking and presentation skills training program shows you how to sharpen performance while magnetizing your message.
That means more opportunity to achieve your organizational goals while advancing your career.
Today’s executives deliver speeches, participate in panel discussions, lead internal meetings, and more. Whatever the format, a customized presentation skills workshop shows you how to:
- Reduce anxiety—The unchallenged number one enemy of good public speakers.
- Make nervousness your ally—Channel that nervousness and make it work to your benefit.
- Deliver memorable presentations—Utilize quotable quotes that will make you the talk of your meeting.
- Discover how to “work the room”—Find friends in any audience, even among a crowd of strangers.
Your program offers plenty of opportunity to rehearse and to internalize your messages. Your performance is captured on video by our professional videographer, with each round followed by an on-the spot critique designed to quickly sharpen your strengths and bolster your challenges over the long run.
We have resumed a limited number of in person engagements in areas where circumstances permit. This is subject to change with little advance notice as conditions evolve.
To protect everyone’s health and safety as much as possible, we strongly advise client organizations to ensure that all participants are fully vaccinated, physical distancing is practiced, and masks are worn except when actively participating in simulated exercises.
Clients who prefer may still opt for remote sessions.
