Optimizing Your Presentation Skills                    


"Interactive workshop - liked the approach.  I feel better about the public speaking experience.  I enjoyed it!"

Cathy Carrara, Allied Domecq cathy_carrara@adssw.com



In as little as a 1/2 day, you can acquire "The Skills".  

Discover how the Lock, Talk & Pause method not only eliminates anxiety, but keeps audiences hanging on your every word.


Say goodbye to fear, sweat, &"practice, practice, practice"!



All great speakers share a   common trait: They learned 

to be great by studying those that went before them. None was born with the gift of speech.

Instead, what makes them good is their common desire to study and learn the basic skills that set great speakers apart. JFK studied FDR and Churchill and then put his own very human stamp on their style.


Bill Clinton studied Kennedy and Martin Luther King; Obama studied them all, and when he shares stories from his life, (and not using the tele-prompter!) you can even hear tones of Ronald Reagan. 


Speaking well is not about genes.  Unlike basketball or the violin, no inborn talent is required.  Speaking well is a skill, comprised of physical behaviors, learnable by anyone who cares enough to succeed.  


"And now for something completely different..."  

- John Cleese


Participants come away from this class knowing exactly why each of the behaviors they employ when speaking causes a specific physiological result. They learn how by modifying those behaviors, they can change the way their bodies and minds respond.  


We don't use pep talks.  We don't tell you to 'imagine' that you're feeling something that you're not.  We don't droll on about the power of positive thinking, or tell you to "just relax".  You learn that although you can't change the way your body responds to certain stimuli, you can certainly change the behaviors that create and magnify the stimuli in the first place.  



"We show people how to look good, sound good, &

look confident & comfortable just being themselves."


More good news: you can also forget what they’ve always told you about “practice, practice, practice”.  Who today can follow “rules” such as “For every minute you speak, spend 60 minutes practicing”?  A presentation designed and delivered with our 3-Step method never needs to be scripted or memorized. 



All participants receive their own copies of our 2 feature length DVD's and the 250-page workbook:


Using our proven system of public speaking that you will learn-for-life, you will have the skills to look and sound like an expert, even the first time out of the box!  At the end of the day, participants deliver a presentation they've never given before, yet look and sound like an expert doing so.  Really quite empowering!


Seeing is believing; you will learn the keys to proper public speaking today and present with them tomorrow. This intensive presentation skills workshop is engineered for those who must design and deliver important presentations for maximum results.  


Our non-intimidating approach to public speaking combines peer review with professional coaching, allowing you to make real-time objective judgments, adjust your speaking techniques, develop more confidence and project truly professional presentation skills.  


"In times of economic uncertainty, when communication skills are paramount to either keeping the job you have or acquiring a new one, 


-wouldn't it be great to have the skills of the world's best speakers?" 


The training focuses on the physical skills required for effective public speaking, structuring a presentation, building credibility, and using proper presentation skills to sell an idea. 


You will learn how to use your voice and gestures to create strong, lasting impressions.  You will gain the skills to bond with your audience, and to comfortably handle a formal speech, impromptu remarks, or a contentious press conference.   


You will emerge with the skills to take control of any environment in which you've been tasked to speak, and with the incredible confidence that comes with that control.


You will acquire the presentation skills to persuade an audience by: 

  • Creating a great first impression

  • Using physical skills to reduce nervousness

  • Organizing content & order for maximum impact

  • Using specific skills to take command of your audience

  • Using eyes, gestures, & voice to become more powerful

  • Thinking on your feet and handling really tough questions

  • Using humor effectively; what type of humor & when to use it

  • Creating and effectively using visual aids that support your ideas

  • Conducting an instant audience analysis to ensure your content is relevant        


This course will change your career - and your life - as it's done for tens of thousands worldwide - Guaranteed!



We'll show you how to avoid entrapping yourself in the actions that cause all anxiety in the first place; you'll instantly feel more comfortable, and become more convincing in the process.  You will do this by simply changing a behavior you've been improperly taught to use since grade school!  This one new skill alone will immediately make a marked difference in organizational results.  You’ll see measurable gains in better communication, enhanced organization image, improved closing ratios, and greater comprehension of your ideas from clients and colleagues.  


"Instead of forcing

 EVERYbody to give

 presentations in 

the same way, 


we lead people to

design & deliver

presentations that

 ANYbody can give

in [their] own way."   



There are no pre-requisites; no prior public speaking or presentation skills training is required nor presumed.  Our “benchmarking” technique allows you to capitalize on your best traits and re-direct your old public speaking style for positive results.  Everybody, regardless of abilities, will learn the specific presentation skills necessary to drive your message home and make your next presentation a memorable experience for all.


This class especially helps those experienced with presentations, and who have had prior public speaking training, to take their skills to the upper 5th percentile of business speakers today.  Some of our most complimentary evaluations come from people who have been in the training arts for years who never knew it could be so easy to be confident and compelling when in the front of the room.  



Have a group to train but just can't get them out of the office for a day?


You may wish to explore the option of having your people take advantage of our self-paced systems for the all the strictly knowledge-transfer components of the training, and then have them perform the delivery segments live, via our proven two-way interactive video system, either alone or together in small groups.
