Technical Presentation Skills
“Throughout my career both military and civil service, I have had opportunities to receive different types of presentation training. The Technical Presentation Skills Class outshone them all. The techniques presented not only met the class needs but they were down to earth easy to use. The difference between everyone’s first presentation and their last presentation was amazing.

It was not only the course, the instructor was excellent. She had a passion for the training and she made you feel it. I went into the training to sharpen my skills and walked out with so much more. The presentation tips and briefing organization tip will greatly improve my next briefing and any future presentations.”—MICHAEL MERCADO, EPA

“ Laurie has trained the team of the BMW Group Regional Office in Panama. After a two-day workshop of presentation skills for non-native English speakers, I could see substantial improvements in the presentation skills of most team members. Some of them came out of the training with surprising improvements.” —JOHANNES SIEBERT, BMW Latin America

“ The feedback from the studios indicates that you walk on water. All four studios were extremely happy with the two-day sessions you conducted. One of the comments (from Kansas City) was that often we get trainers who try to adapt their presentations to the way we do business and many times miss the mark. You, however, were right on target! They especially appreciated the one on one sessions you held with the individual instructors.Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us. I know the quality of the product that we produce will benefit from the advice and training that you provided.” —JOHN BUTORAC, Social Security Administration

“Laurie worked with our client to design an interactive, concise meeting to coach district managers at Kmart Corporation on the basic skills of effective presentations and instruction. She covered relaxation techniques, verbal and non-verbal delivery skills, dealing with difficult situations (such as class members who are bored, disruptive or hostile), tips for managing flipcharts and exercises, and the general qualities that make the difference between an adequate presenter and an outstanding presenter. She also worked one-on-one with many of these people, providing individual coaching on their presentations to improve their skills and confidence. My client was extremely pleased with the results; all the executives believed that their session with Laurie was valuable and prepared them quite well for the upcoming conference.

Laurie was able to accomplish this so effectively because she is an outstanding presenter herself. She is relaxed, poised, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the art of presenting in a business setting - all important qualities for a coach. Moreover, her sense of humor, dedication, and flexibility make her a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Laurie to anyone in need of consulting in the area of instruction, facilitation, or presentation.”—KARYN PATTERSON

“Thank you so much for helping make our management training session such a success! I have received a lot of feedback from the team and have to say it was our best in memory. Today I can see the extra “jump” in the step of our managers who left feeling listened to. You ENGAGED them and that made a world of difference between a meeting and a productive work session. We left with a working mission statement and a focus on how to make it “come to life” and for your assistance I sincerely thank you, again. ”—ALAN GRAHAM, General Manager World of Erhard
