"The success of your presentation will be judged not by the knowledge you send out, but what the listener receives"
- Lilly Walters -
Effective communication learned through interaction
I believe strongly in hands-on and experiential learning, and employ a variety of methods to teach the skills necessary to help you be successful. During our work together we will utilize actual presentation material you use and scenarios you encounter when presenting. This enables you to directly apply the skills learned in real life.
Some interactive techniques I employ include:
• Role playing
• Speech delivery followed by praise and polish
• Improv activities
• Partner and group exercises

THE POWER OF CONNECTION
Public speaking is a crucial skill for any professional. Whether you're an entrepreneur, corporate leader, sales expert or consultant, being able to effectively communicate is important.
Public speaking allows you to connect with clients, partners, referral sources and employees, among others.
And that connection is the key to your success!
The problem is, most people would prefer death to public speaking (it's a statistical fact). Beyond that, public speaking is more than just getting up in front of people and talking — it requires strategy, skill and practice.
Whether you're an experienced public speaker who is looking to fine tune your skills, a novice interested in learning the art of public speaking, or somewhere in between - Shannon can help you connect with your audience so that you can accomplish your goals to motivate, educate, persuade and inspire!
