Technical Presenter Series:

You just experienced a spectacular movie. As you and your friends exit the theater, all you talk about is the movie. The movie connected with you.

Now think of the last technical presentation you delivered. Did your audience leave with that same connected feeling? If they didn't,  perhaps a workshop specifically designed to elevate your presentation to that spectacularly connected level is in order.

Every presentation should leave the audience with a connected feeling and an understanding of the content at a very basic level. After years of coaching good technical presenters, I have come to understand some of the shortcomings of today's technical presenter.

Non Native English Speaking Presenter Series:

I have worked extensively with presenters that feel their native language is an obstacle when presenting to an English speaking audience. I personally feel a presenter with a foreign accent is an exotic addition to a well crafted talk, in as long as the presenter is articulate and presents their content with passion and an understanding of the elements of communication. I crafted this series for the presenter that may have a language articulation challenge and desires to improve on their delivery. This  workshops consists of learning and understanding the following:
