Michelle’s course is without question one of the best programs on presenting I have attended. The way she facilitates this masterclass on the surface seems very simple, fun and easy to follow. Yet do not be fooled as Michelle is certainly a master educator and the way she delivers this content is amazing. The more you delve into her formulas and techniques the more impressive and helpful it is.
What kind of presenting do you do at work?
I deliver Team Building sessions and key notes. that can involve firewalking and glasswalking to help audiences and clients to develop and enhance the mental and physical skills they require to achieve peak performance in their business, sport and personal life. My clients range from individuals to businesses, including world class athletes, frontline staff, senior management and CEO’s of corporate networks.
What prompted you to study with Michelle?
As a practitioner of peak performance I am always looking for ways to improve my skills and approach. I had met Michelle in a mentoring program for speakers and felt she’d be well placed to help me take my speaking skills to the next level.
How did Michelle's teaching change your attitude to presenting in business?
Michelle’s Persuasive Presentation Skills Masterclass gives you a very clear formulas and a structure to use for putting together a presentation, keynote, even a piece of business writing. And it doesn’t matter whether you’re a new presenter or you’ve delivered done 100’s of speeches you will certainly learn the best system there is.
How have improved presentation skills impacted on your job and your career in general?
Michelle’s masterclass definitely helped me to refine the way that I present my motivational content. My keynotes now flow even better than they did previously. I’m receiving very positive feedback from clients that they have loved what I do and want more.
What were your top three takeaways from Michelle's teachings?
There are hundreds of little things that I have been reminded about that great speakers do. The things I most enjoyed are:
1. How to deliver a great icebreaker and intro to hook the attention of your audience from the very start.
2. A good process for reframing and dealing with conflict and/or objections.
3. Where to insert the facts, figures and data to back up your points so that you increase your message credibility and overall effectiveness.
