For Participants

Preparation Process:

To get the most out of your session, we want you to feel confident and prepared.  To ensure your time is used productively, our coaching team does hours of prep work to design a training that is all about you.  From pre-training surveys, to conference calls and in-person meetings, our coaches get to know your issues inside and out.

Prior to your session, we’ll email you a pre-training questionnaire you can complete easily online. The questions help guide our coaches to prioritize session topics. These results are critical to our training preparation and we greatly appreciate your assistance.

"Great training! Being trained on how to effectively communicate by two coaches who are very good at communicating, makes it that much more effective and meaningful."

- Presentation Training Participant, 2021

Thank you so much for your feedback and support during this course! It has been one of the best courses I have taken. I liked that it targeted my personal strengths and areas for improvement. I discovered that public speaking (pretty much like everything else) is a form of art and something that can be learned and polished with practice and time.

I feel that after taking this course I am no longer afraid of public speaking or creating presentations, on the  contrary, I have started to enjoy it. For me it was valuable that the course was structured as a one-on-one learning with individual feedback. I liked to learn that every presentation can be turned into an interesting event by using stories and connecting with audience.
