DESIGN & DELIVER PRESENTATIONS

Transform Your Skills And Become
A Confident, Clear & Compelling Presenter
9-WEEK MASTERCLASS

WHY I DEVELOPED THE COURSE

Too many smart, capable professionals are fearful to communicate their ideas and expertise.  This holds them back from speaking up in meetings, let alone delivering a presentation.

Others are not necessarily fearful but their message lacks clarity, their delivery is long and boring, Q&A is mismanaged, and ultimately their audience tunes out.  What at first is an opportunity to inform, motivate, and persuade becomes a disaster nobody wants to relive.

When you excel at designing and delivering presentations, it increases your confidence and can even transform how you see yourself.  The truth is, with the right instruction, practice, and coaching, everyone can improve and some can become really great. 

When a client asked me to help their their sales leaders, executives, and technical professionals improve their skills, I knew I could help. They wanted custom content, professional virtual instruction & coaching, and for participants to deliver live zoom presentations to their peers.

We rolled out the project which delivered measurable resultsI was convinced the process could be repeated but felt it could be even better. So I reached out to my network to learn what they wanted and believed should be included in the course. 

Introducing

Design & Deliver Presentations

A 9-Week Master Class combining Live Online Instruction with Assessments, Group Feedback and 1:1 Coaching.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE

It's for Business Professionals who...

...   Lack experience and training in designing and delivering presentations.

...   Present to senior leaders, peers, teams, training audiences, civic groups, or investors.

...   Stumbled, even bombed in the past, and are now fearful of ever presenting again.

...  Feel you have to memorize your presentation to deliver it well.

...   Experience deep fear, even terror at the thought of presenting.

...   Take endless hours designing your presentation or wait till the night before.

...   Make changes right up to the last minute, many of which prove unnecessary.

...   Spend more time designing slides instead of rehearsing your presentation.

...   Fail to motivate and engage their audience.

...   Use PowerPoint as your presentation instead of a visual tool to reinforce your message.

...   Mismanage Q&A, especially from senior leaders or tough audiences with hidden agendas.

...   Become overwhelmed, distraught and sick to their stomach with out of control nerves and anxiety.

...   Hold on to self-defeating, limiting beliefs that keep you from delivering a great presentation.

...   Possess overconfidence in your skills which leads to “winging” your presentation.

...   Believe delivering effective presentations is critical to your success.

Wow... that sounds like me!

PARTICIPANTS MAKE REAL PROGRESS

Listen To Graduates Describe Their Progress & Increased Confidence.

COMMON SOLUTIONS DON'T WORK

Watching YouTube Videos.  There are simply too many to find the really good ones plus they offer conflicting instruction on the same topic which becomes very confusing.

Going to Seminars.   In many, you only listen to the speaker and don't practice what's being taught.  You acquire knowledge but you don't develop skills.

Observing Great Speakers.  This often results in trying to copy them which keeps you from using your unique gifts, developing your own style, and speaking authentically.  You can't be someone else!

Practicing By Yourself.   You receive no feedback  so you don't know what you do well or where to improve. Anyone who has ever mastered a skill had a teacher to guide their development.

WHY THIS COURSE GETS RESULTS

You learn a proven approach that works for all types of presentations and audiences.

You practice what you learn, receive group feedback and formal evaluations plus weekly 1:1 coaching.

You have lifetime access to workbooks and recordings of your classes, presentations and coaching sessions.

CLOSING THOUGHT

Enroll by 9/22/20 and receive 3 BONUS Coaching Hours good thru 12/31.  

First, let me thank you for considering this course. Chances are you’ve read other course sales pages and if you’re like me, we’ve found them to be overly emotional and full of dubious claims.

Using appropriate emotion and credible claims are what makes a message persuasive and a presenter memorable.  But don't enroll just because I’m suggesting you should.  Simply reflect on the presentations you’ve delivered - both formal and informal - and visualize your audience.  Now ask yourself, "Do they want to hear more or less from me"?

Whether it's presenting to teammates, pitching to customers & prospects, leading training classes, facilitating webinars & zoom calls, and even 1:1’s with people you lead, we're always presenting.  To succeed, you must have a clear, concise message that moves people to action.

When you excel at developing and delivering presentations, it increases your confidence, bolsters your reputation and advances your career.  The truth is, with the right instruction, practice, and coaching, everyone can improve and some can become really great.  That's what I want for you!
