    I read a recent study by tech giant IBM that came to a pretty startling conclusion:  In the next three years, approximately 120 million professionals worldwide will need to develop more effective behavioral skills and new ways of working together in order to succeed in the evolving digital age. 

  • The Late Night Experience: Learning from a Master

    They’d just done a tour of the NBC studios in New York City and were walking down to the merchandising area when someone from Seth Meyers’ Late Night show walked up and asked if they’d like to sit in on a rehearsal of that evening’s show.

Cisco

This is a very different class from other types of presentation classes. A more structured and valuable approach.

Dave Cronberger / Customer Solutions Architect

Roche

We wanted to give something to both our bench scientists and our director-level people. PowerSpeaking, Inc. was the only company we found that could provide programs at those levels. One crusty senior scientist went in skeptical, and came out saying ‘This the best thing I have had in the 17 years I have been here.’

Margaret Greenleaf / Training and Development

Hitachi

I believe this will definitely be a key to the advancement of my career.

Quenda Robinson / Senior Inventory Accountant

NetApp

This was the BEST class I have taken to date. I am very introverted and didn’t want to take it, but am extremely glad I did. Will recommend it to everyone.

Michelle Blank / Support Account Manager

Trimble

There were so many topics and tools that I never thought about before taking this course. I am confident that it will further my career within Trimble as well as help my business unit make better decisions.

Aaron Phillips / Regional Sales Manager

SAP

Your course validates the basics/common sense things and brings attention to details and importance of the right preparation to communicate effectively.

Ruchi Sethi / Lumira Business Development Manager

Oracle

Better presentations leads to better decisions. This leads to better profits.

Dillip Praharaj / Database Architect

EMC

Any success I’ve enjoyed here at EMC is due in large part to the great training I got from you guys back in 1989 when I was with HDS. You gave me the skills and the confidence to present with passion that opened the doors to traveling the globe many times over.

Tom Burns (upon retirement from EMC) / Innovative Partner / Client Solutions, Experientially Based Course Design

Genentech

PowerSpeaking was the best and most practical workshop I have ever taken.

Ariel Mihic / Group Product Manager

Excellent feedback sessions. Great ideas to make presentations more effective.
