About Our Classes

A Lifetime of Improvement in Six Weeks

Beginning on September 14, 2021, we’ll meet for six 90-minute classes via Zoom on Tuesdays from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET.

(This class meets on September 14, 21, 28, October 5, 12, 19.)

In between each class, you’ll do small homework assignments to help you grow your skills. During each class, you’ll participate in an exercise to apply your skills to your real-life material.

After your final class, you’ll receive the video of your practice talk and schedule a free one-on-one session to refine your presentation further and receive feedback from one of our coaches. You’ll also receive digital access to our 90-page presentation training binder and a monthly subscription to our 10 in-depth clients-only reports.
