Influencing Humans Through Presentations

Email us to be notified of our next class.

What makes this class better:
  • A pre-session behavioral survey ensures we customize this small class for you, as an individual;
  • You will practice speaking and receive 1:1 private coaching throughout the day, so you are given tools that work specifically for you;
  • You will receive a series of follow-up learning by email, to help you practice and integrate what you have learned after your session;
  • You will get to see — and feel — your progress immediately.
Your message deserves to be heard and remembered.

In this full-day event, we will help you develop practices that increase your particular influence in presentations. 

You will present and be coached in front of a group, and then leave the room for 1:1 individual coaching focused on YOUR style and abilities.

We use filming to show you the types of practices that bring out your genius, rather than telling you — ridiculously — what to do with your hands or counting how many times you say “um.” We will show you what works for you and how to build on it.

To learn more, find your primary goal in presenting below.

What would you like to work on?

Reducing Nerves or Discomfort

If your physiology gets uncomfortable or awkward while presenting, you are not alone. This public speaking class disrupts patterns that keep you from speaking in a natural style, and does not ask you to be fake. We will help you improve your ability to think on your feet, help you recognize and tap into your physiology, and discover how to use your body’s cues rather than be abused by them.

Storytelling

How people feel about themselves while listening to a story dictates commitment to a message. We will teach you how to use physiology in storytelling that helps an audience find themselves in — and remember — your message.

Motivating Action

You will experience and learn how to keep clients, audiences, and employees curious rather than responsive or argumentative. We will show you how to increase the mind share of an audience so they repeat your message and feel motivated to act, and we will teach you how to inspire in your own, authentic way so people trust you.
