You're in front. They're all looking at you. Are you ...
Completely at ease, effortless?
Creating a great personal connection?
Communicating with tremendous clarity?
Blowing them away?
Inspiring them to act?
Exhilarated by results after your presentation?
That’s what will happen after this workshop.
When your ideas are powerful, how you express them must be powerful too.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
This intensive workshop is one of the highest rated training experiences in the world. The name, Transforming Your Presentation Skills, came from our clients. A couple of years ago we looked through all their workshop evaluations for the one word they used more than any other to describe how they felt after this workshop. The word was transformed.
expect to be completely transformed
It’s not enough to connect with some of the people in the room. If you want to be powerful, you need to connect with ALL of them.
Having that connection stops time, makes you relax, makes your words FLOW so you don't need a script.
It makes you communicate with compelling clarity. You OWN the room. You come across as a natural leader. People WANT to hear more. They're moved by the power of your ideas.
It's a profound experience for you and for them. The energy that comes back to you will blow you away.
This does NOT happen naturally for most people, especially not when they’re in front of an important audience, a big audience, an audience they don’t know or one that’s tough or cold.
That’s why it’s a SKILL.
Why is this skill valuable?
It’s rare to find someone who can connect with, move and inspire everyone in the room. Think about it. How many people do you know who can do it?
“I presented to senior staff yesterday. The entire room was in complete silence and so engaged during the entire hour that you could practically feel the energy from their eyes and minds. If you have ever sat in one of these meetings, you know how unusual that is. Normally it is a multi-tasking fest! The compliments I received afterwards were overwhelming. They could not have been more complimentary… I was told it was the best presentation they had ever heard.”
It's beyond words.
Your presentations define your career
They create tremendous opportunities for you to be visible, heard, valued, respected, to reach many people at the same time, make an impact, make a difference, be a force for positive change, to lead.
Being front and center creates career-defining moments that require SKILL. Blowing your audience away doesn’t “just happen”.
Even if your content can blow them away, it doesn't stand a chance if your skill in presenting doesn't match up.
When you have these skills, you can give the exact same presentation, but expect a completely DIFFERENT outcome.
“I made the exact same presentation to management last week that I made before attending your workshop. The presentation before the workshop failed to get approved. My most recent presentation was unanimously approved! The chair of the meeting even commented that I made a very good presentation.”
If you have a fear of public speaking
If you have a fear of public speaking, we'll get you through it by lunch on the first day. There are thousands of tips out there on how to deal with the symptoms, but none of them address the root cause, so they don't really work.
Once you know the root cause and do the exercises that make the anxiety completely VANISH, you'll be in front, completely calm, at ease and relaxed, you'll immediately connect, you'll be really good even before your first, “Hello."
You can stop worrying and be completely at ease
When you know you can connect with, move and inspire any audience, even a cold one, you don’t need to endlessly rehearse or fuss with your slides.
You’ll sleep well the night before any presentation, regardless of who's in the audience, regardless of how big that audience is, regardless of how high the stakes are.
You know you’ll be persuasive, you know you'll communicate with compelling clarity.
It’s a natural high like no other.
“The most beautiful moment was when I walked on stage in front of shining lights. Could not see the people, but felt their energy, and there was no stopping me. I gave them total honesty about the issues and my recommendations. Lots of positive feedback. Some even said they got goose bumps.”
Having this confidence gives you a good night's sleep the night before.
WE'RE NOT TAUGHT THESE VITAL SKILLS
There are very specific skills you need to master for you to be able to give a powerful presentation to any audience. To move and inspire them, whether there are 3 or 3,000.
This is a SKILL SET you can master.
To a level where it looks like magic to everyone watching.
We’re not taught these skills in the course of our education, so we need to learn them as adults.
This particular skill set isn't something you're going to learn from trial & error, reading a book, watching videos or analyzing what other people are doing.

what to expect
Transforming Your Presentation Skills workshop is a combination of:
Eye-opening lectures. Even clients who have attended many other programs, including expensive executive level courses, tell us they learned things here they've NEVER seen anywhere else. "Eye opening" is the most frequent term used to describe our lectures.
Intensive, expert coaching while you practice and master these skills. The amount of practice you'll experience truly is beyond anything you've experienced before. These are not skills that can be polished without real practice. The precision coaching you will receive will surprise you. It will enable you to achieve mastery while being 100% true to yourself.
Videotaping is not only an extremely effective coaching tool, seeing your transformation in your "before" and "after" videos will blow you away. You'll have solid confidence you can execute on these skills. This ensures that after you leave you'll be able to create what we at ETS call "miracles as usual".
You'll leave this workshop with abilities you never even knew existed.
Imagine blowing an audience away. Imagine transforming any audience. Imagine having that skill for the rest of your life. What you just imagined can become reality in 2 days.
