“My team told me repeatedly that this was the best money I’d spent all year."
My team told me repeatedly that this was the best money I’d spent all year, and I couldn’t agree more. Seeing the vast improvement in participants’ speaking skills over the course of just a few hours was remarkable. Even more remarkable is how they’ve all retained the information from our training several months later.

How our programs are different
Questions about our classes? Interested in customizing a workshop for your team?
Incorporating new skills and refining existing ones takes time. “One and done” doesn’t work. So we won’t disappear after your training. You’ll receive 10 clients-only reports, a one-on-one follow-up consultation, and an annual refresher webinar—for free. If you invest in us, we’ll invest in you.
Our custom sessions are, of course, highly personalized. But even our group sessions are about half the size of the competition. That means more personalized attention while working on your real materials.
We Are Industry Leaders
Our first book, The Media Training Bible, was an Amazon #1 Public Relations best seller. Our second book, 101 Ways to Open a Speech, was a Kindle #1 Public Speaking best seller. We’ve trained tens of thousands of people for the world’s biggest stages—and have earned the repeat business of dozens of clients who were thrilled with their results.
We Know How to Teach
Knowing how to deliver a successful presentation or interview isn’t enough. It’s far more important to be able to transfer our knowledge to our trainees in a manner that enables them to act on it immediately. We’re rooted in theory but deliver practical advice. We’ve regularly refined our teaching methodology since 2004 and have created a fast-paced, fun, and highly effective workshop that has been delivered successfully hundreds of times.
We offer a small number of transformational courses built on many years of experience. Our courses lead to “a-ha!” moments and deliver long-lasting results. Our clients leave with new perspectives and the tools they need to feel empowered and genuinely confident in their ability to achieve their most ambitious goals.
We’ve worked on the world’s biggest stages and know how to translate our experience. We’ve trained clients for TED Talks, prepared members of Congress for high-pressure interviews, and helped CEOs navigate challenging audiences. We’ve played at the highest levels but know how to translate our experience to speakers at all stages of their careers.
