Look What Former Clients Say about Working with Us!

“I wanted to learn how to become a better public speaker. I teach medical billing and I wanted my classes to be more exciting. I learned so much from Liz; intonation, pitch and diaphragm breathing as well as how to deliver a great presentation. I used to be so unsure of myself. After this class, I am more in charge and show more authority. I have executive presence and no longer fearful.”

- Jill

I didn’t present myself well and sound credible. Liz has been very helpful on what I should do and not do. I am very cognizant of the changes I want to make. When I would introduce myself, I would run out of breath. Liz taught me how to diaphragm breathe. It’s so nice to talk and not run out of breath now. All of what Liz has taught me has been very helpful and this will certainly help me in my career.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of taking a small group, public speaking workshop?

It is very beneficial to partner with other people. Like you, they have similar communication and voice habits and goals. The small group creates an extremely supportive and safe environment to get in front of others and practice a presentation and receive helpful feedback. Participants offer sincere comments and recommendations that often carry as much weight as the instructor because it is coming from a peer. It’s a fun two days. Participants bond during the breaks and over lunch. The presentations are on the second day and the group is well bonded by then and there is safety and comfort among the group.

Is this as good as a longer, private public speaking class?

Certainly. Often better than private instruction. We keep the group size small for individual attention. You will have a speech and voice assessment and poor or unhelpful speech voice habits will be identified. You can state your goals. There is tremendous benefit from working in a small group as people are there for the same reasons. It is a very supportive environment. Great comments and discussion come from the group experience. This seminar also includes leadership traits through communication and voice which is important for the business setting. Many participants network with one another and we have a great time. This is a quicker way to have the learning experience as opposed to a 6- or 8-week weekly class.

Do the online participants feel included in the group?

Absolutely! We do a great job of getting the online and onsite participants to interact with one another. Online participants will be partnered with another classmate who is online or onsite for exercises. You will be able to participate in discussions and ask questions. The workshop will never exceed 10 participants, regardless if students are onsite or online. You will still deliver presentations and receive hands-on private coaching. It is not the same as attending onsite, but the next best thing. Online participants do miss out on our yummy catered lunch and tasty treats though!

Should a group class be taken if I have a severe case of fear of public speaking?

No. If you have a severe fear of public speaking where you feel panic, sick, and have tried to get out of presenting in the past, I will say this is not the course for you. Fear of public speaking is a very real situation. It is the same as the fight, flight, or freeze response. I would recommend private coaching sessions with us first to dive deep into past experiences and create exercises where you will slowly and surely gain the confidence to present. We have worked with people in the past who have required medication to deliver a presentation and are now medication free and feeling a lot more confident. Speaking before a group is often an important skill for many roles. You can learn to speak Infront of others and sound smart, confident, and impactful. Then when you are feeling better, you will be encouraged to join our small group public speaking workshop for a deep discount so you can present in front of others in a safe, friendly, and fun environment.

Will we learn how to organize content and other modern trends for delivering a presentation?

Yes. It does not have to be, “Death by PowerPoint”. In fact, the newest trend is to be a storyteller with only a few words on a slide and use more visual images. This sounds intimidating at first. Many people enjoy this style once they become comfortable with it. When you are a storyteller, you will become a great speaker who stands out. You will make your point more effectively and sound more persuasive while doing so. The audience will thank you as you are more interesting, and you will command respect as an expert in your topic. 

We will have time to practice this, find new ways to organize content, and not have too much on a slide. We will also look at other delivery models other than PowerPoint.
