Optimizing Your Presentation Skills


In as little as a 1/2 day, you can acquire 'The Skills'.  

Discover how the Lock, Talk & Pause method not only eliminates anxiety, 

but also keeps audiences hanging on your every word.


Say goodbye to fear, sweat, &"practice, practice, practice"!


All great speakers share a common trait: They first wanted to be great, and then learned to do so by studying those that went before them.

None was born with the gift of speech.


Bill Clinton studied Kennedy and Martin Luther King; Obama studied them all, and when he shares stories from his life, (and not using the tele-prompter!) you can even hear tones of Ronald Reagan. 


Speaking well is not about genes.  Unlike basketball or the violin, no inborn talent is required.  Speaking well is a skill, comprised of physical behaviors, learnable by anyone who cares enough to succeed.  


"And now for something completely different..." 

- John Cleese


Participants come away from this class knowing exactly why each of the behaviors they employ when speaking causes a specific physiological result. They learn how by modifying those behaviors, they can change the way their bodies and minds respond.  


We don't use pep talks.  We don't tell you to 'imagine' that you're feeling something that you're not.  We don't droll on about the power of positive thinking, or tell you to "just relax".  


You'll learn that although you can't change the way your body responds to certain stimuli, you can certainly change the behaviors that create and magnify the stimuli in the first place.  



"We show people how to look good, sound good, and look confident & comfortable just being themselves."


More good news: you can also forget what they’ve always told you about “practice, practice, practice”.  Who today can follow “rules” such as “For every minute you speak, spend 60 minutes practicing”?  A presentation designed and delivered with our 3-Step method never needs to be scripted or memorized.
