I had a fantastic time teaching a custom presentation skills class in Houston, Texas for QuestIRA last week. Quest is a really unique company that helps their clients establish and maintain self-directed IRA’s without a broker. So, a big part of their organization deals with educating their clients so that the clients can make good financial decisions. Many of their clients have moved their IRA funds out of the stock market and into asset-based investments like real estate, commercial property, business loans, and precious metals.
Custom Presentation Skills Class for Different Levels of Speaking Skill
One of the things that made this class unique was that we had both of the founders of the company, who deliver three to five presentations a week, along with new associates who have never delivered a speech at all. Because we focused on a few basic techniques and moved quickly into some of our more advanced ideas on designing custom presentations, though, everyone was satisfied with the results. Below are a few of the comments from the class.
“I thought this course was very great, and gave our whole team some really good tools to improve the content of our presentations. I really liked how Doug showed us how to structure our presentations and what type of content/structure works best to really give a quality, persuasive presentation.” — Haley Gant
“Doug was great. Perfect professionalism and unique touch. Tips were better than expected and he helped with a lot of things I didn’t even know I was doing wrong.” — Keaton Munster
“Had a great time. Doug was very informative. I feel better about presenting now that I did before I took this class. Thank you.” — Waqas Khatri
Thanks, Quest IRA! I look forward to working with you again soon.
