What have you done to refine your presentation skills?

Accelerate Your Career & Transform Your Life in 2.5 Days!

Imagine...

You spend all month preparing for a big presentation. Learning the material, the content and even going through dry runs with your colleagues and family members.

The day finally comes... it could be a sales pitch, a Keynote Address at an industry conference, or an internal pitch for resources.


Despite feeling a bit anxious, you flow through your content and at the end… a hand goes up! Then two! Then three!


You think to yourself, “yes, they are engaged and asking questions!”


The first two questions are people asking you to clarify your main message… the most important point you tried to get across!


Then, your mood changes and your stomach drops... politely, you try again.


That’s when you get to the third question... “something new”, you hope!


This person seems to understand but isn’t understanding the significance.


It was “lost in translation” as the ole’ saying goes…

"Mastering the art of public speaking is the single greatest skill to boost your career." - Warren Buffett

    I saw you on LinkedIn today and thought it would be nice to say "thank you" for the training you provided to me and my teammates when I was just starting my career at Apple back in the mid 80s. Who would have imagined in 1984 that Apple would one day be the most valuable company in history? I've had a wonderful career in high-tech and I've used the skills I learned in your course every step of the way.

FAQs

1How much does it cost?
$2,250
Customized group sessions are available, please call or schedule time with us for details!
2How long will I be out of the office?
Two and a half days. A big commitment. Now, you’ve already seen how our students find the investment more than worth the time investment. But is it right for you? That’s a decision only you can make.
3Do you offer refunds?
When we offer refunds, there’s always one person who shows up with no enthusiasm, not willing to commit. That’s not good for anybody. So our rule is this: If you’re in, you’re in all the way. If you’re out, you’re out. At the end of the day, this is not a spend, it's an investment. You will earn your money back many times over if you use the tools we give you. And you will. No one walks away from this course without transforming their presentation and communication abilities.
4What if I already have similar training available in-house?
If you have free training available in-house, you should definitely take advantage of it. But similar? We’ve spent years refining our methodology and tested it on thousands of students and some of the world’s largest employers. We’re quietly confident our coaching system is unrepeatable. That said, the Excellence in Speaking Institute requires 100% commitment. If you’re on the fence about committing, we recommend saving your money and training in-house first.
5What if I’ve already done other sales or presentation courses?
We hear you. You’re wondering if you really need to invest the time and money on yet another course. But since you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you didn’t find what you need yet. Perhaps the last course you did was jam-packed with acronyms and mental models. This can be a dangerous approach. After all, if you struggle to remember an acronym or mental model in the heat of the moment... You become more self-conscious, not less. And that’s going to kill your sale or presentation dead. That’s why we don’t flood our student’s brains with any unnecessary acronyms or models. The ones we give you? They’re the only ones you really need. And our coaching method will guarantee you “get” them, and our practice routines will “embed” them in your brain. Using them will just become second nature, a part of your daily routine you barely have to think about.
6What about COVID-19?
Your safety is our number one concern and we take great care to keep our training facilities virus-free. That said, you might have an existing precondition that makes you particularly concerned about attending. In that case, we recommend joining one of our online sessions from the comfort of your own home. (*we need to update this because we no longer offer online sessions)
7What if I want you to train my entire team?
No problem. We’ve trained many in-house teams, including Compass Group, the 6th largest employer in the world. To find out how we can help your team, please schedule a 20-minute call with Carlyn. You’ll be taken to our Calendly page where you can choose your spot. On the call, there’s no sales pitch. Instead, Carlyn will explore your needs and show you what our in-house coaching can do to level up your team. From there, it’s your decision.
