Mark Twain said, “No word was ever as effective as the rightly timed pause.”

In fact, the pause may be one of the most useful tools in the communicator’s tool kit. Pausing helps you gather your thoughts, adds drama, and shows confidence, all at once.

In our workshops, we not only coach our clients on how to pause effectively, we coach on how to stand up and deliver presentations with passion and in a way that connects and motivates.

Our workshops focus on two main areas when it comes to delivering presentations:

  • How to organize a simple, persuasive, listener-centered message: 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 and energy in your body, face, and voice. 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 pause and inspire confidence from your audience.

Speechworks is a communication and selling skills coaching firm. We teach professionals how to craft and deliver complex messages in a simple, persuasive manner. Since 1986, through workshops and one-on-one instruction, we have helped countless individuals become better presenters and communicators.
