A presentation is an important business tool. Whether you’re persuading colleagues, selling a client, energizing a team or showing an idea to senior management, the power of your presentation can make the difference.
Success depends on your presentation ability, so don’t miss this opportunity to sharpen your skills. Participants will present at least six times over the course of two days, while being videotaped and evaluated with expert, one-on-one coaching.
We'll empower you to communicate boldly by helping you learn to connect confidently with any audience. You'll develop essential skills, attitudes, and behaviors that distinguish powerful communicators. You’ll see gains in better communication, enhanced company image, increased sales of products and services, and the bottom line.
The class is small. The environment is supportive. The work is intense. And the results are outstanding. Join us.

A peer, who shares presenter duties with me, said that because he had seen me giving these talks before, he was taken a back by my change in delivery, but then further stated that it was the best presentation that he had ever seen by any previous presenter.Andrew Gee
Before taking this class I only thought my presentation skills needed some polishing up. However, my old methods of presenting have been tossed out the window and I have started implementing these new developed skills. In such a short period of time I have already started receiving such great positive feedback.Xilomin Salazar

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this class only for executives?
No, we have people in many roles attend this course. Managers, salespeople, professionals, recruiters, and others have benefitted substantially from this course. If you give at least 2-3 presentations a year, then this course be very valuable to you.
How many times will I be videoed?
We will video you presenting during the course a minimum of six times. After each video is made, you'll get to review it immediately in order to discover as much as possible about where you are improving and what you can do in future presentations to enhance your skills even more. You'll receive the files for these videos at the completion of the course.
I don't like seeing myself on video.
Few people enjoy seeing themselves on video and we hear this comment often at the start of the course. However, almost everyone who attends the course finds the immediate video review to be of great value in developing skills quickly. By the second day of the course, many of our participants tell us that they are looking forward to the video review, since they get to see visually how much they have improved.
What should I bring to class?
There's nothing you need to bring to class outside of whatever will make you comfortable to learn with us. Outside of class, we recommend that you have access to a computer between the first and second day of the course. We'll optionally ask you to prepare a short PowerPoint between day one and two that will help you maximize your skills in using visual aids supported by technology.
What should I wear to class?
We recommend that you wear whatever you would normally wear when giving presentations. This will allow you to gain the most for the presentation practice, coaching, and exercises.
Do I need to prepare presentations in advance of the first session of the course?
There is nothing you need to prepare before the first day of the course. We'll provide a full roadmap for your presentations.
Is there a lot of homework between day one and day two?
We'll ask you to prepare at least one presentation in advance as a capstone experience for the end of the second day of the course. Depending on your experience and comfort in preparing presentations, this may take 20-30 minutes or up to an hour or two. Past participants tell us that this is a valuable time investment that allows them to fully maximize the value they gain from the course.
Is lunch provided during either day of the class?
Lunch is not included either day. Due to varying dietary preferences, we schedule a full lunch break each day and provide you with a number of suggestions for close and convenient dining.
Will I benefit from this class if I don't give presentations regularly?
You likely will, but we'd recommend you speak with us prior to attending the course so we are sure to be in alignment with your goals. In the past, we've had participants attend the course and have great success in building skills for interviews, supporting other presenters, and for their own personal growth and development.
Let's talk more so we can make sure you make an informed decision about the course or recommend another option, if High Impact Presentations is not the best fit.
