Executive Presentation Coaching

Transform your presentation skills with proven strategies to break through and truly engage audiences.
How You Succeed – As a leader, you are expected to deliver compelling and engaging presentations that sell your organization’s brand, ideas and initiatives – and studies show you have less than 30 seconds to engage your audience. However, just because you present, does not mean you are heard– because you are competing with audience filters such as emotions, beliefs, perspectives, values, culture, criteria, etc. Our presentation experts are also Certified Master Practitioners in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), the study of behavior and language patterns. We will show you how to use these filters to immediately engage your audience and shift their thinking.
What You Will Learn – You will learn new strategies to increase your Credibility and Likability Factors. The Credibility Factor has to do with presenting believable, compelling and clear information. The Likability Factor has to do with your approachability and how well you connect with your audience. Studies show that people are more influenced by emotions than data, so you should avoid data dumps to truly connect with your audience. You will also learn a host of powerful delivery skills that will transform your use of space, body language and other nonverbal cues. A UCLA study reveals that nonverbal cues account more than 85 percent of how people respond to you, so these skills are important! Studies also show people recall only a small percentage of what you present, thanks to ever-shrinking attention spans – so you will learn dozens of strategies to hold your audience’s attention: the proper use of PowerPoint, themes, sensory elements, sound bites, visual language, props and much more. Storytelling is also a foundational engagement skill, and you will learn the verbal and nonverbal strategies necessary to be an effective storyteller. Our goal is to give you the edge you need to be your very best!
