Presentation Skills: Individual or small group

When you and your team have been invited to give a client presentation, it is already assumed you have the credentials to do the work. What your clients want to know now is, are you the people they want to work with?

Developing and delivering winning presentations is all about two basic things:

(1) Showing your potential clients that you care about them; and

(2) Conveying benefits to the client in everything you say.

Establishing trust and rapport with your clients is the goal of any great presentation. Anna will help you and your team land on the messages you need to convey, and help you deliver those messages in a way that will foster trust and rapport. In addition, you will learn how to respond to questions and concerns in the moment with ease and finesse.

Anna will also offer suggestions on how to tailor your presentation content, organization, and visual elements for maximum impact and results.

Training begins with five one-hour sessions; additional sessions as needed.

Anna helps you unpack presenting and public speaking and then shows you how to deliver on the goals of a presentation brick by brick. It is invaluable guidance that has helped me become a more engaging speaker at every level, from presentations at work to reading stories to my kids!

Anna clearly has mastered voice coaching. Whatever concern I raised, she had a technique right on hand to resolve it. She helped me let go of my ‘little girl’ voice. Now my voice and speaking style reflect the confidence I have in my subject area.
