The Powerful Presenter in You:

Motivating Action

Part of the Communication Strategy of Success Program


Program Overview

By practicing and receiving feedback regarding the manner in which we present ourselves – both formally and informally, we take a much deeper dive into the key components of the Communication Strategy for Success Certificate Program. In our world of fast-paced, ever-changing and diverse interactions, this type of immersion experience quickly and efficiently alerts us to the things that are helping and hindering our leadership impact.

What kind of impression do you make when presenting information or sharing ideas with individuals or groups on the phone, by email, in a meeting, interview or any public gathering? Is your message authentic and powerful? Do you engage, motivate or influence others to ask questions and take action on an idea? The answers to these questions depend on you, the “presenter”.

This interactive, practical session is not about how to create a power point presentation – it is about giving you the wisdom and tools to explore and practice being a Powerful Presenter.

Compel Us

By knowing the compelling reason ‘why’, we stay focused on the purpose of the presentation.  And in turn, we inform and satisfy the ever-present human need of knowing ‘What’s in it for me?’ and ‘Why should I listen?’

Instill Confidence

By knowing how to confidently prepare and present this compelling message we put ourselves and others at ease - whether you have 2 minutes or 2 weeks to prepare, whether the presentation is 5 minutes or 5 hours long or whether your audience has 3 or 300 people.

Build Trust

By integrating learning styles, needs and conditions – whether prepared or impromptu, we show adaptability, reliability, competence and honesty - the key components of trust.


Engage Empathy

By integrating awareness of yourself and others we achieve maximum inclusion and buy-in and minimize exclusion or dismissal.

Leave A Lasting Impression

By making the best impression possible, we gain gravitas and motivate others to take action.


  • Practicing Powerful Communication

    At the heart of any Powerful Presentation, is a Powerful Communicator. Someone who consistently practices effective communication in all areas of their life. This is not an innate, inborn characteristic of only certain people. This is a learned and developed practice – a conscious choice to be self-aware, develop new skills, replace bad habits, practice and course-correct throughout our entire lives.

    San Francisco/New York-based Decker Communications regularly produces a Top 10 List, as well as a Best & Worst Communicators list on their blog. In addition, Rachelle Brockman has polled thousands of participants in her workshops over the past 20 years asking the question, what do you especially like and dislike about the presenters you have experienced? Here are some of the top best & worst Practices of Powerful Communicators:
