Testimonials:  Lisa In Action

Steve Ferrari  International Race Car Driver:  “On the personal front, speaking eloquently and with a ‘neutral’ accent has always been an important aspiration for me. On the professional front, conveying a clear and persuasive message has become a must in my role where I am frequently interacting with the media and representing brands. Lisa delivered on both fronts. Among the various speech coaches with whom I have worked, Lisa stands out. She is worldly and has refined taste, having lived in many countries around the globe. Her sessions are entertaining, and the results are realized without having to undertake tedious homework."   — Steven Goldstein, Official FERRARI racing pilot


Anthony Masys Defense Scientist: 
"The presentation you gave at the System Safety Conference in Baltimore continues to influence my own presentations and has allowed me to engage with the audience in a much deeper manner. Thanks again. Hopefully I will have another opportunity to attend one of your presentations.

Robert Balzebre Real Estate Developer:
“Lisa Jeffery’s programs and guidance have been invaluable. She has been able to help me clarify my communication skills by using more vivid metaphors and picture-based speech patterns. In addition, she has improved my vocal articulation and inflection tones in order to not just be better heard, but to be remembered. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to make an improvement in their communication."

 The Art of Being Memorable: Charisma Can Be Learned! 
How To Have An Oscar-Winning Delivery & Speak without Notes!

"We never forget memorable people. Memorable people make us feel special. We think about them often, we remember what they say, how they say it and what they do. How is it that some people are more memorable than others? What is it that makes them unforgettable? Is there a formula? YES, there is! First, it is being authentic. Secondly, it’s studying the masters, learning the secrets that they knew. And third, it’s exuberance, that wonderful formula that keeps us from being boring."

This is a fun and lively workshop that helps you become the real you, find the sparkle that's inside, learn how to motivate and inspire others, and develop the  communication skills that can help you become memorable to everyone around you.   You will analyze how to “say things the BORING way” and then liven it up with fire, exuberance and word pictures! You’ll learn to explain things using powerful metaphors, which cut the understanding and guarantees that people remember your words and ideas!  This seminar teaches you that being memorable and the skills of great communication can be learned, and YOU can be a great speaker, great leader if you BE YOURSELF and add polish!

Finally, you will learn what makes a great delivery: your voice, body language, timing and exuberance! You get o practice what to do with your eyes, hands and body... as well as your voice!

Why Study Public Speaking?

Public speaking is not a talent, it's a skill.  You can earn how to become skilled in building confidence, organizing your ideas, polishing your delivery -- and becoming memorable as you begin to develop your own speaking style. You will make prepared presentations in these courses, and will have many opportunities to practice your new impromptu speaking skills. You will learn how to tame your anxiety and use that adrenalin to your advantage. These courses are appropriate for the novice as well as experienced communicators. 

Learning public speaking skills helps you build confidence, overcome communication anxiety, and master methods on how to present your thoughts clearly, so they have an impact on your listeners or audience. Good speakers have influence, and this is why we study the skills and practice.  You can take your career to the next level with an enhanced ability to give clear, compelling, and engaging presentations. In these valuable hands-on and interactive one-day workshops, your will refine your public-speaking skills and learn techniques in building your confidence and how to organize your thoughts and speeches. You will also become more comfortable talking to groups and more authentic in your speaking style.
