Austin Texas was a small class, but small classes offer the participant more one on one coaching, more time to spend on the different modules. In addition, the atmosphere is more relaxed and helps the participant feel more relaxed and in the end achieve more success. A Regional Sales representative for Johnson & Johnson said: " I got much more than I expected and I would recommend Fearless Presentations to friends and co-workers". Fearless Presentations is a 2-day presentation skills class that gives participants the tools to deliver powerful introductions, learn how to most effectively incorporate stories and examples into any topic. Some of the comments from the participants were " The tips on how to structure and deliver an impactful presentation were very helpful" and also " The power of stories make the presentation easier to deliver and helps you connect to your audience"
When a speaker turns boring statistics into real-life stories he or she makes the audience sit up and listen, “appreciate” not “tolerate” his presentation. Every set of data deserves a good story – a story that you can claim, and bring to life. A really good story helps your audience understand the data. The group who attended the Fearless Presentations Workshop in Austin learned the importance of the proper use of audience participation. Many people try to get their audiences involved in their presentations, but end up struggling to get people to participate. The first mistake people make is that they ask rhetorical questions and then wait for an answer. Drawing on shared emotions and experiences, stories create rapport, interest in your subject, and buy-in. The more stories you tell – the more persuasive your speech becomes, and the more relaxed and powerful you become as a speaker. The key is using your strengths to help the audience receive the information in a way that connects with them. At the conclusion of the class, another participant said " This was a very effective confidence builder for me, thank you"
