“A healthy male adult bore consumes each year one and a half times his own weight in other people’s patience.”

Those are the words of John Updike, the Pulitzer Prize winning author who passed in 2009.

Of course, he wasn’t talking about public speaking. But it’s certainly a good thought to keep in mind as you plan your next presentation.

In our workshops, we help you learn how to never bore your listeners. We focus on two areas:

  • How to organize a message that is tight, simple and focused on audience needs. Speechworks teaches a simple Formula for focusing on listener needs. We believe that if you have strong content, you will be more confident when you get up to speak.
  • How to deliver the message in a style that connects with the listeners.  We focus on eye contact, gestures, voice energy, and facial energy. Our coaches will give you private feedback on where you most need to improve.

Consider attending an upcoming workshop. We’ll help you learn how to make your presentations exciting.

Speechworks is a communication and selling skills coaching firm. We teach professionals how to craft and deliver complex messages in a simple, persuasive manner.
