PUBLIC SPEAKING TRAINING

NOT YOUR TYPICAL COMMUNICATION TRAINING.

// TRAINING

Public speaking and storytelling are both a science and an art, formulas mixed with messiness. These interactive, unconventional, improvisational, customizable, academic, and scientific workshops, for small or large groups, focus on the critical elements of speaking art and science: thoughts, words, actions.

THE CONFIDENT COMMUNICATOR

Transform speaking fears into fuel! Our communication can often be muddled with irrelevant details, vague messages, that lead to awkward and inefficient interactions. This inspiring and practical workshop reframes speaking nerves and unlocks clarity, confidence, and comfort in every speaker through science-based speaking, storytelling, and emotional intelligence strategies.

THE PERSUASIVE SPEAKER

Inspire and persuade audiences into action through ancient speaking and storytelling strategies with a modern twist. The original rhetoricians coined the terms logos (logic), pathos (emotion), and ethos (credibility) to define how human beings send and receive messages. This inspiring and practical workshop explores how to leverage these approaches in all presentational opportunities.

THE INSPIRING STORYTELLER

Energize and inspire your teams through a culture of storytelling. Our brains read stories like computers read code. Yet, we often don’t consciously know the power of our own storytelling capabilities. This inspiring and interactive workshop teaches effective storytelling techniques to capture and retain your audience and advance your mission and goals.

All workshop experiences have options for additional group and individual coaching programs.

TESTIMONIALS

Peter Myers

“As the Director of Professional Development of Young Professionals Connection (YPC), an initiative of the Greater Des Moines Partnership, I had the opportunity to work with Erik in designing a public speaking workshop for young professionals in Des Moines. Erik led a highly-interactive and engaging workshop as he guided us through relaxation techniques, practicing articulation, and even speaking off the cuff. Erik is an outstanding expert in the public speaking realm, providing multiple steps and fun ways to perfect our skill. I would highly recommend Erik’s public speaking workshop to any organization!”
