Focused on the human side of business
Do you fear standing up in front of others? Do people not hear the message you attended? Do “uh” your way through your business presentations? Do you get flustered when asked a question?
I have delivered hundreds of presentations to thousands of people both in person and virtual. Yet, it wasn’t always like that. I can remember when my boss asked me to deliver a simple presentation to a hundred employees. I was so nervous. I stood up there mumbled said more “uh’s” than you would have thought possible.
Later, I was asked to facilitate leadership development classes for my company. And as I learned how to prepare, speak clearly, use the room to my advantage, tell stories, and most importantly have fun, I realized that all I ever wanted to do was use my presence to help others.
Facilitation is public speaking, but it is more than that. Facilitation is helping the audience find the wisdom in the room. Sometimes, it is challenging them. Sometimes, it is listening to them. Sometimes, it is just sitting there and doing nothing.
I love it. And I want to help you love it, too.
I use the same proven process for developing leaders to also develop facilitators.
Before any journey, you need to
know where you're going. To
maximize training effectiveness,
we start by discussing your
unique goals for facilitation
Where we start is as important as
where we are going. No one can
help unless they know where you
are. We start by assessing your
current facilitation abilities and
areas that we'll need to work
together to develop.
We cover several presentation skills, including:
It's one thing to know how to
present; it's another to stand and
deliver. Practicing gives you a
safe environment to implement
what we learn and receive
Using what you've learned,
deliver presentations and training
Engagements can last anywhere for a single meeting to a six-month engagement. It will depend on the requirement of the student.
Over the years, I have created a simple methodology with a powerful impact called True Star Leadership.
Let’s find a great time to discuss how I can help you become a confident presenter and trainer.
