Presenting Skills &  Public Speaking

Presentation Skills have never been more important than in today's business world. Everyone is overloaded with information coming at them from all directions - multitasking, time pressed and stressed out. Did you know that most people forget 40% of what they learned within 20 minutes?

You want to Be Memorable and have clients and colleagues Pay Attention to what you are saying!

Presentation Skills are something we demonstrate every day and are a major component for success in business. Fortunately, or unfortunately, our reputation and credibility can depend on the way we communicate and deliver our information.

A little humor...

People fear speaking in public more than death, studies reveal.  Which means, that if you have to be at a funeral, you would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy.” – Jerry Seinfeld
