Do you wish you could press “rewind” after meetings so you could say things differently? Do you find yourself spending a lot of time writing your presentation, but very little time actually practicing the delivery of your presentation? Do you wish you had more tools to be a better communicator?

Whether you are communicating with your team, your customers, or your manager, speaking in front of an audience – large or small – is a daunting task. In today’s workplace, you need the ability to communicate ideas and recommendations successfully. This is more than just a public speaking course – it’s a real-life case study. Our trainers present to thousands of people around the world every year, and have years of experience as corporate trainers, keynote speakers, auctioneers, improv comedy performers, and even bingo facilitators. With this unique expertise, we share inside information on communicating tough messages, leading meetings, and wowing crowds. The audience leaves with the confidence and advanced skills to deliver effective presentations and lead lively meetings – without feeling the need to read words off the slides. Participants have a hands-on experience (literally) to practice gestures, identify filler words, and even share updates about a work project.

Participants leave this program with the ability to: 

  • Reduce stress and nervous tension related to giving presentations
  • Utilize posture and gestures to command attention
  • Master eye contact, volume, and tone to increase trustworthiness
  • Reduce filler words and learn to pause for effect
  • Lead with conclusions and close presentations with power and persuasion

This program provides remarkable knowledge, critical practice opportunities, and constructive feedback to achieve maximum impact in all communications.


Space at this workshop is limited due to the format of the course. Each company may register up to five employees.
