Ignite your ability to influence others with proven training and speaking methods that enhance the transfer of knowledge.

Are you finding yourself repeating information over and over? Are you wondering why your message doesn’t seem to be landing with others? Chances are high that you have been telling people, not impacting people. The issue is often not the core message but on how that message is delivered. To truly be effective, impactful and retain the content, the delivery must create connections, exploration, and internalization of the message. This course combines techniques from a variety of accelerated learning and speaking approaches in a challenging but fun way.
