Unconventional Training for Out-of-the-box Results

You’ve sat through too many presentations that make you want to hit the snooze button so you can wake up when it’s over.

You’ve watched smart, talented team members hide in the back of the room, passing up presentation opportunities, swallowing their words and falling back in their career advancement.

You’ve scrambled to fill a leadership position, and when you look around the room, no one is ready to step into that role, because they just can't move a room to action.

What if your company focused on growing the leadership potential of each employee?

What would be the impact if your entire team had the skill and confidence to present more effectively, and understood to the bone the story your company is telling?

When you amplify the communication and leadership skills of everyone on the team, you’ll watch the entire team rise to its highest potential,

and your company will have the leaders it needs to thrive in the 21st century.

While I can support your team long-term through ongoing speaker training, here are 2 of my most popular daylong trainings. Let’s talk about building a program that’s best meets the needs of your organization.

Ignite Your Speaking Power

Your organization has a wealth of talented people with big ideas, change-making smarts and massive leadership potential. But when it comes to sharing those ideas in presentations and meetings, they often get lost behind lack of confidence and self-doubt. That’s costing you real dollars in lost productivity, lack of employee engagement, and buried innovation.

In this training, participants learn tools and techniques to deliver dynamic, high-impact presentations so they can step into leadership and directly impact the bottom-line.

Stop watching team members swallow their message, hide in the back of the room, hedge in meetings, or even go on and on like windbags. Instead, create a culture where they grow into their full potential with the skill & confidence to nail any speaking situation, and become the leaders your company needs.
