Why picture skydiving on a public speaking web site? Because they have much in common. Fear of a bad outcome, but the reality is that they are easier and safer than they look.
You don’t need colorful clothes to tell a colorful story (although sometimes it helps). We have a human tendency to pay more attention to stories and to better absorb information that comes to us through them.
Group coaching and workshops add a dimension to public speaking training. Our workshops are interactive and everyone gets to observe firsthand as others present and are evaluated. Class members will recognize in others habits (good and bad) that they have developed themselves.
Some clients are surprised to learn that not only is presentation coaching an effective way to improve your speaking, but it can also be quite relaxing and fun. Hear what Diane has to say about her experience:
Your company’s very reputation is often judged by how clearly you express yourself.
Every workshop (on-site or outside location) is customized to emphasize the client’s desired focus areas.
Message Clarity was founded in 2008. Company founder Rick Fornoff has been working with speakers for over 20 years to improve their presentation skills. Having progressed himself from personal panic attack mode to professional speaker, Rick can identify with, and is able to help speakers at all levels of skill and experience. We offer individual coaching, as well as, group workshops and classes provided either on-site or at our classrooms.
Our story aside, what you surely care about is not our company history, but what we can do for your own company, or for your individual career. There is no question that regardless of technological advances, the most effective and compelling way to influence people is through face-to-face communication. Think of how few of your larger purchase or investment decisions were made without having someone speak in support of them. Imagine how much more successful you will be as your skills in public speaking and being persuasive are increased.
Working with Message Clarity will have a major impact on your journey to self-improvement and lead to greater satisfaction and success at work and in other activities.
Public speaking can be less stressful than jumping out of an airplane.
