Did you ever attend a presentation where the speaker used Power Point and read off every slide, and there were only 329 of them, said the same phrases over and over to the point of absolute annoyance, told jokes that were lame or inappropriate, or that had half the audience either falling asleep, visibly yawning, or tapping their feet impatiently before getting up and leaving anyway?
Sadly, it happens a lot – and it’s not until you see a real professional presenter in action that it really strikes you just how awful some of them can be. You don’t want to be that guy/gal! Ever!
You don’t have to be – and your staff don’t have to bore the pants of people if they are also put in a position of having to verbally represent your company either.

” Maria has provided personal coaching to assist my presentation skills, particularly speaking engagements in front of groups. I’m so pleased to report that I gave my first presentation today since working with Maria, and successfully delivered our message without a hitch… AND my audience remained ‘awake’ and engaged the entire time! Thanks Maria, you are a fantastic coach, and I look forward to continued learning and personal development, you’ve provided real value.l” Karen Huckstep – Business Development Manager, IVS, NZ
