• Presentation & Pitching Skills

Learn to present like a pro (and enjoy it when you do.)

“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” So said Jerry Seinfeld. And it’s funny because it’s true!

Which is why we think it’s crucial to establish a warm and positive training environment for participants to practice presenting and public speaking. And that’s what you get: road-tested insights from decades in front of audiences. All delivered with personality and energy. In a relaxed and fun environment that makes people actually want to get up in front of an audience.

We don’t try and turn people into robots: we start with what you already bring, building on your strengths so that you sound like yourself when you speak. But you’ll also leave with new skills. We will help you conquer nerves, craft compelling stories, and bring the full force of your personality into your presentations.

Presentation and Pitching Skills training questions:

  • Do you suffer from ‘death by PowerPoint’? Could your presentations just as well be documents?
  • Do your presentations emotionally connect or are they drowning in data?
  • Is your point being lost in the noise?
  • Do you have presence when you speak? Can you hold a room long enough to land your message?
  • Do you know the most effective presentation structures to hook attention, make your message flow and land your point?
