Passionate about Communicating
I enjoyed participating in speech contests back in high school and then became very active in Toastmasters as an adult. I really enjoyed my Toastmasters experience, and improving my speaking and presentation skills really helped me in my business career. I decided I would like to use my passion to help others learn to become more confident with their communication skills, become more dynamic speakers and learn to manage their presentation anxiety.
As Owner and President of Dynamic Presentation Training, I use my expert communication skills and expertise to help others manage their public speaking anxiety, improve their presentation and non-verbal communication skills to become a more dynamic speaker. I facilitate workshops and provide one-on-one coaching sessions.
Never Underestimate the Importance of Public Speaking
Even if you don’t need to make regular presentations in front of a group, being a good public speaker can enhance your reputation, boost your self-confidence, advance your career and open up countless opportunities.
Business leaders are often expected to present their message with confidence and clarity to staff, clients, partners, investors and sometimes the public. Millions of dollars can ride on these presentations. Being well presented in the workplace in a presentation, in a meeting, during a discussion with a colleague or client is essential. If your career is important to you then you need to develop your presentation skills!
Overcoming Your Fear
Studies show that public speaking is most people’s number-one fear and they would do almost anything to avoid having to give presentations. The good news is that presentation skills can be mastered with the right training.
I target my training and coaching to meet your specific speaking goals, whether you’re looking to win a multi-million-dollar contract, motivate a team or conquer overwhelming nerves. I am passionate about what I’m doing and always strive to make the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I take great pride in helping trainees achieve their communication goals.
You’re Never Alone
I started my business last year and found out that it entailed way more work and expertise than I had originally anticipated. I was feeling overwhelmed and didn’t know where to turn. When I learned about IAW and joined this wonderful organization, I discovered that I was in business for myself, but not by myself. I’m so happy that I found IAW and now have the available resources that I need to help my business grow.
I plan to continue growing my business by helping as many people as possible become more confident, dynamic and memorable presenters. The more workshops I facilitate, presentations and speeches I deliver, and coaching sessions I give, the more I will improve my own presentation and speaking skills. I want to work towards becoming a more experienced, professional and sought-after speaker. By helping others, we help ourselves.
Use IAW’s Resources and Network, Network, Network!
I have tuned in to several of the eCoaching sessions and webinars and have found them to be very helpful. I just started accessing the Star 12 online classes, which offer a wealth of informational topics that have answered some of my business questions and given me tips to help me with my business.
I went to a few of my local networking events and met some really great women who seemed more than happy to offer help and suggestions to help me with my business.
The women in IAW are a group of successful, accomplished and professional women of which many have already gone through what you’re probably going through now. Reach out to these women and benefit from their knowledge and experience. In addition, take full advantage of the many benefits this organization has to offer, especially the great website.
