In House Training

Sending an individual staff member to a public seminar can be a convenient way for that person to learn new skills and gain new knowledge, but what if there are a number of people in your organization who need presentation development?

Then in-house training may be the most effective and economical solution for your organization. All of our in-house workshops are customized and also provide a follow-up report. Each party assigns a liaison to coordinate logistics. The client is responsible for travel and normal expenses, the venue, equipment, and refreshments.

Presentations With A Business Success Focus

Business presentations and sales rank high on almost everyone’s list of greatest fears. Yet in today’s business world we make presentations all the time: staff meetings, planning sessions, outside agencies, special interest groups, board meetings, unions — that is before we even get to the customer!

The marketplace and client are competitive, constantly changing. The customer is busy, educated, and has more access to information than ever before. They carefully select who and what they listen to. They are looking for professional, well researched, accurate, and usable information that is presented professionally. In this time-pressured, competitive world, having a specific proven model for delivering and scripting customer based presentations is essential, not only for the peace of mind of the presenter but also for continued success.

“There are two ways to persuade people. The first is by using conventional rhetoric, which is what most executives are trained in. That’s not good enough, because people are not inspired to act by reason alone. The other way to persuade people, and ultimately a much more powerful way, is by uniting an idea with an emotion. The best way to do that is by telling a compelling story”
– B. Fryer, Senior Editor at Harvard Business Review
