Ask us about it!


You will learn best practice in presenting and public speaking. Based on our work at Harvard University, MIT, Boston University, and other top organizations around the world, Presentation Skills Training is our flagship workshop that has helped hundreds of thousands of people become more comfortable and effective in their public speaking. Participants will learn the same best practices in public speaking taught to leaders of countries, leaders of companies and people from all levels in organizations. This program will be tailored to your specific type of public speaking because public speaking is not a one size fits all. Different types of presentations require unique implementation of the core communication competencies for maximum impact. Our Speech Coaches are highly educated to know the difference. Presenting internally, externally, at a conference, TED talk, to the media, to investors, accepting an award, telling stories, these are NOT all the same.  Tell us about yourself or your group and let us customize this program for you.

How do you know our approach will work?

It’s simple. We’ve been successful with happy clients returning year after year for over 5 decades.  Our coaching staff studies communication academically. We don’t simply use Google to come up with tricks to teach. We don’t try to embarrass people or play games. No boring lectures. We teach, practice, train and coach. We are highly trained professional speech coaches by vocation. Our coaches are more like doctors (some of us actually are), to diagnose your current speaking strengths, and supplement them with what’s missing.

Our 56 years of experience gives us vast and wide knowledge for how to reach even the most fearful or challenging participant. This allows us to go far deeper for maximum impact. We customize all our training and provide a variety of teaching modes to accommodate different learning styles. This creates a safe space for learning, which allows for participants to focus on themselves and their own development. Because of this approach, we have a 98% return business rate.
