Compelling Voices, Powerful Ideas
Presentation Training

Are you ready for this?

Maybe you're a veteran public speaker. Or perhaps you haven't been in front of a live audience before, and you're suffering from a little stage fright. Regardless of your experience level, presentation training can make a difference.

Podium Prose trainers will provide tips on how to prepare to give a speech, how to deal with nervousness, and how to feel comfortable in front of an audience. For more experienced speakers, we'll analyze your style and offer advice on how to bolster your strengths and improve any vulnerabilities in how you address your audiences.

We also work with executives and political figures on how to handle media interviews. This involves a variety of skills, from eye contact to body language to effectively summarizing your message and following your agenda, not your interviewer's.

Public Speaking
Tip of the Week:

Don't use PowerPoint as a crutch in your public speaking. Too many speakers use Powerpoint simply to reiterate visually in short phrases what they're already saying vocally. They end up speaking to their slides instead of connecting with their audience. Use PowerPoint for simplifying complex data, for sharing an interesting image, or for posing questions to the audience. Don't rely on a slide deck to give your speech for you.


Winning Words
of the Week:

"Each time I look at that flag, I'm reminded that our destiny is stitched together like those fifty stars and those thirteen stripes. No one built this country on their own. This Nation is great because we built it together. This Nation is great because we worked as a team. This Nation is great because we get each other's backs. And if we hold fast to that truth, in this moment of trial, there is no challenge too great, no mission too hard. As long as we're joined in common purpose, as long as we maintain our common resolve, our journey moves forward, our future is hopeful, and the state of our Union will always be strong."

President Obama, State of the Union Address, January 24, 2012
