While there are other “presentation trainings” available, our program is dramatically different. Here’s why:

  • We focus on bringing out the strengths of each individual student, rather than defaulting to a “cookie cutter” approach.
  • The tools students learn are useful for presenting in front of a group, one-on-one, and even in email and voicemail- skills for communication everywhere.
  • Our training is centered 75% on live practice and feedback, giving practical tools to ensure that communication will be effective and impactful, even if you are presenting online.

Who should participate?

You don’t have to consider yourself a “public speaker” for this seminar to be enormously helpful. Presentation Boot Camp will assist you in formulating your message at the board table or at the dinner table. It’s about presenting any information in a persuasive, confident, and structured way in order to get results. Whether you present in front of groups of two or two hundred, live or online, learn how you can get even better results. And even if you have a fear of speaking in front of others, this is a supportive, tactical, non-threatening way to finally find your voice.


We incorporate the latest research along with constant feedback from our students about what’s most helpful to them as we teach our core methodology:

  1. Credibility
  • Who are you as a presenter?
  • What messages are you sending outside of just words?
  1. Connection
  • How do you connect with the audience?
  • There’s more to presenting than slides!
  • How to Enter, Enlighten & Exit™
  1. Construction
  • Making complicated messages clear & concise
  • Staying on track and preparation techniques
