Excellence in Speaking Institute(ESI)

This signature course concentrates on arguably the most important business and life skill: communicating more effectively.



Course Description:

Ty Boyd’s Excellence in Speaking Institute® (ESI) is an entertaining, interactive class where participants prepare short talks on simple topics. Limited to a small group for maximum effectiveness and personal instruction, this 2 ½ day course provides an experiential learning experience. Our approach to speaking and presenting combines peer review with professional coaching. Participants are on their feet presenting several times throughout the course. Presentations are videotaped and reviewed one-on-one with an executive faculty member for personalized coaching.

Expected Outcomes:

Participants are given proven techniques for preparing and delivering effective presentations; greater confidence in their presentation skills ability; and new tools for effective communication. Each attendee also receives an individualized game plan for how to further improve and enhance their skills after the course.

At the end of the course, students leave with a course workbook, Ty Boyd’s book of tips, techniques, and strategies, and access to several of their videotaped speeches. These tools serve as exceptional resources for further study.
