PresentAbility is an innovative, interactive public speaking course designed to create a new and more powerful speaking paradigm for participants. Whatever size
the audience, after PresentAbility you will think differently about speaking and
even have fun making presentations.
In a sense, every time we communicate we are making a
presentation. It may be more or less formal, highly prepared or
impromptu, but there are certain constants that underlie all
communication and all presentations, e.g., the speaker always has an intended message for a particular audience. PresentAbility™ focuses on each of these constants to assist the participants not only
in building skills, but in shifting paradigms in regards to how they think about themselves as speakers, how they structure and deliver their messages, and how they pay attention to and learn from the audience. The instructors model the concepts and techniques as well as teach them.
The instructors also provide personalized coaching to address the specific style, issues, concerns, needs, and goals of each participant. The PresentAbility™ approach
works with both the rational and non-rational aspects of the
speaker's experience to help each participant discover new resources
and abilities within themselves and enable them to break out of limitations
to achieve greater confidence, power, and effectiveness in speaking.
