Public Speaking & Presentation Training
Learning to master the art of public speaking can be daunting to many. Don’t let the presentation take away from the value of your important message. It’s our job to make sure that message is delivered powerfully and professionally.
Prepare, Practice, Present
How many of you took public speaking in high school or college? Did that do the trick? Are you putting your best foot forward when presenting to your clients, colleagues and potential customers?
The skills to communicate effectively, to present your ideas, and to encourage, enlighten and entertain are some of the most powerful abilities a person can possess. And the amazing thing about these skills is we all have the tools we need to practice them. We just have to devote the time and effort to develop them. At Walk West, we offer group and individual workshops to help you reach your highest potential. And what makes our training unique is the on-camera aspect where you see yourself in action, understand your strengths and weaknesses and immediately put into practice the skills to take your presentations to the next level.

Walk West is excited to offer an online version of our presentation coaching called, Rock Your Next Talk Masterclass. It’s world-class instruction through videos, presentations, activities with feedback, downloadable resources, a completion certificate and everything you need to become a confident communicator. People sign up for it as individuals, not as a group. It’s self-paced and students complete it online in their own time. However, unlike most other online courses, we will interact with the students directly because there are activities that students will upload which we give feedback on. This masterclass is ideal to introduce at an organization level where you’d like to offer a professional public speaking/presentation class at scale and at a reasonable fee.

What Do I Do With My Hands?
The number one question we get is what to do with your hands. An important part of presentation training is body language. Typically, Sharon and Melanie are all business when it comes to the workshops they lead. But a common public speaking “no no” recently garnered a huge reaction in our office. So we thought we’d make light of it and share a solution at the same time.
