I'LL NEVER FORGET
One day, early on in my career as marketing director, I watched our vice-president, a tall imposing man dressed in a black power suit, stride onstage to give a speech. As he reached the podium, I could see – we could all see – his trembling hands and the stress in his eyes. Was he nervous! That was bad enough, and then things got worse. When he started to speak nobody listened. As he tried to catch our attention, it was clear that he didn’t know how. He was visibly and painfully embarrassed and looked, well, powerless. The rest of his speech wasn't any better. Ouch.
That was a defining moment for me as I thought, “There’s got to be a better way. Nobody should have to go through this.” I decided then and there to make it my business: helping speakers perform effortlessly with calm, poise and power.
LOOKING FOR A MAGIC FORMULA
Presentations are complex so I needed to find a formula that made it easy for anyone to present their ideas clearly and confidently. Over the years, I studied with the world’s top presentation and public speaking specialists, always looking for best practices that would make becoming a powerful speaker as quick and easy as possible.
Although there were endless options, none had the efficiency, quality or breadth my clients needed to create exceptional presentations with ease.
When I couldn’t find the magic formula my clients deserved,
I created it.

Coaching sessions made a huge difference. I feel I now have a full backpack of tricks and ammunition to speak in a crisp and clear manner. I developed a lot self-confidence.
Aerospace, Senior Manager, Customer Service
The course was a tremendous value. It’s one thing to understand the theory but it’s a whole other thing to apply it. Having your outside point of view really helped me creating a presentation that makes sense to audiences and delivers a clearer message.
