The Secret to Foolproof Presenting

Can be done as a keynote or breakout session

Jess Todtfeld, former National TV Producer turned Presentation/Media Trainer will entertain, educate and inspire your audience. Techniques of persuasive and effective communication are mixed with actual video clips of business leaders, newsmakers and politicians.  These clips provide real world framework for these skills which bring about “light bulb” moments in the audience. This keynote address takes your audience behind the scenes to see exactly why newsmakers are doing well, and how we can take those skills with us after the talk. Todtfeld shares the same analysis while training CEOs and high profile clients. Your audience will not only be entertained, but will be surprised by how much practical advice they can take away and use the next time they have a public speaking opportunity.

Each keynote address can be tailored to the specific personal interests of your  audience. VIDEO EXAMPLES will be used.

By the end of this interactive program, participants will be able to:

– Become more memorable every time they speak to clients, prospects, employers, people they network with, or anyone they try these techniques out on.

– Create more ACTION every time they speak.  That is the return on investment when it comes to using these communication tools.  This is the reason WHY we should do this… to create a specific outcome.

– Create word of mouth advocates in everyone they meet.  Wouldn’t it be great if people you met not only remembered you but told other people about you?  That is our goal.
