Corporate Workshops

Whether you’d like to develop your professional image, sharpen your presentation skills, boost your creativity, or think more clearly on your feet, you can count on our training to be content-rich and immediately applicable in the real business world. Usually offered in one-day or two-day formats, we’ll bring our workshops right to your door. We suggest that enrollment be limited to 8–10 participants (depending on the topic) to assure that everyone receives personalized feedback and coaching.

Projecting Credibility and Confidence–One-day Workshop


Whether you are meeting one-on-one with clients, interacting with colleagues, or delivering a formal presentation, appearing credible and confident will significantly raise your effectiveness. Through a combination of lecture, videotaped speaking exercises, and direct feedback, this one-day workshop will give you a clear understanding of the image you project—both strengths and weaknesses—and what you can do to help your listeners get the best possible impression of you. We limit the workshop to 8 participants to assure that you receive plenty of on-camera practice and individualized feedback. Call or contact us for more information.

Powerful Presentations–Two-day Workshop


Develop the practical tools you need to deliver dynamic, professional presentations. Through a combination of on-camera exercises and follow-up discussion, this highly interactive two-day workshop will show you how to establish a great first impression, organize your content for impact, interact effectively with the visual aids, and manage nervousness even if the stakes are high. Best of all, you’ll learn how to create a strong connection with your listeners so that they truly hear and retain your message. The workshop is limited to 10 people to assure plenty of on-camera practice and individualized feedback. Call or contact us for more information.

Thinking On Your Feet–One-day Workshop


You need to be able to think and respond quickly and clearly when the pressure is on. This one-day workshop helps you explore strategies for doing that. Through a series of impromptu exercises and on-camera practices, you'll develop skills for organizing your thoughts when time is tight, managing nervousness when the stakes are high, and learning how to effectively handle difficult questions. We limit the workshop to eight participants to assure that you receive plenty of on-camera practice and individualized feedback. Call or contact us for more information.

Creativity Boost for Business–One-day Workshop


This playful all-day workshop uses improvisational games to train your brain to innovate, create, and take risks. This format is perfect for any team that needs to generate innovative plans, brainstorm new concepts, get a fresh perspective, or just take a break from a routine. Its unique combination of creative, team-building exercises and games will spur your group to new heights. Both entertaining and energizing, this workshop can also be presented as a two-hour off-site retreat. Call or contact us for more information.

Advanced Presentation Skills–One-day Workshop


Once you’ve taken an initial workshop, you’ll want to continue to hone your skills. This full-day workshop gives you the opportunity to practice your skills under the watchful eye of a professional coach. We limit the advanced workshops to eight participants to assure that you receive plenty of on-camera practice and individualized feedback. Call or contact us for more information.
