What qualifies me to coach you?
I have experience and a proven track record of getting results for my clients.
After 20 years working as a technology evangelist, presenting ideas and innovative products at conferences, trade shows, and in customer meetings, I began teaching others how to become more confident and more effective communicators in 2008. Since then, I have been coaching hundreds of presenters to reach deep into any audience.
My coaching clients include entrepreneurs, executives, marketing and sales professionals. Corporate clients include Ricoh, Sony, IBM, and Microsoft. I’m also frequently working with conference organizers and startup accelerators.
How can I be of assistance to you?
In our coaching sessions, we will work on every aspect of your presentation: structure, content, and how to deliver your message with authenticity and enthusiasm. We will find the right stories and anecdotes to create a narrative that will have an emotional impact and persuade your audience to take action.
Every week in a fast paced 30 minute meeting, one presenter gets an opportunity to practice a 3-min. pitch, followed by feedback from a group of professional coaches as well as participants who want to share their observations.
My blog is the place I share some of my best presentation tips, techniques, and general information to help you become a more effective presenter.
A deliberate change in tempo makes a presentation more engaging and allows the presenter to convey different emotions.
No, I’m not suggesting to get drunk to become more articulate. What I am suggesting is an exercise stage actors have been using for ages.
Pauses in presentations allow the audience to absorb your words and also add credibility and make you appear confident and in control.
