Entrepreneurs, professionals, authors, speakers, coaches, consultants:
Are you ready to stop playing it safe? Are you ready to own the stage? Are you ready to make the kind of impact on your audience that you've always dreamed of?
Yes, you can give engaging presentations -- presentations that compel your audiences to take action, presentations that persuade your audiences to buy, presentations that take your audiences from apathetic to motivated -- and you can do it with ease and with confidence!
I know how lonely it can get on stage. Sometimes your audience is not there by choice. Sometimes your audience is skeptical or hostile. Sometimes your audience just needs their first morning coffee!
Whatever the reason, we don't always receive the level of attention and interest we hope for as presenters. And if they're not interested, and they're not paying attention, they're not engaged.
Why does this matter?
If your audience isn't engaged, you can just forget about all of that.
But maybe you really don't have any idea about what you need to do to get and keep their attention. Or maybe you've tried some things that used to work... but don't anymore.
You can keep trying to figure it out on your own, or...
You can learn from my experience from over 20+ years of professional public speaking!
My self-paced home study program, "Speak to Engage: 7-Step Shortcut to Public Speaking Success," will take you through the steps to creating a presentation that gets you the results you're looking for.
This program is for you if:
frustrated with the lukewarm and "polite" responses you get
every time you speak
You're uncomfortable using humor, but you know it's the #1 way to get your audience on your side
You give the same presentation on a regular basis and want to make it fresh every time
You struggle with adjusting your content for different audiences and feel like you're just not connecting
You're an experienced speaker looking to fine tune your skills and add some new tricks to your bag
If some of those resonate with you, then my program "Speak to Engage: 7-Step Shortcut to Public Speaking Success" is for you!
Public speaking can be such a joyful experience. Connecting with the audience, giving them my energy and receiving it back multiplied, knowing that they walk out the door inspired, motivated and ready to take action: That's what I want for you.
I will share my absolutely fool-proof techniques (and one of them is a big mental shift, so get ready...) for giving a presentation that grabs your audience's attention and keeps it, while raising your professional profile just a few notches!
And get this:
Engaging the audience, focusing on making the presentation enjoyable and memorable for them...
Also builds your confidence!
You can actually have fun!
And at the same time, get the results you want from your presentations:
More customers and clients
More visibility for your business
More credibility for you
Here's a sampling of what you're going to learn in my 7-step program:
Step 1: The audience comes first
Yet these two steps are ignored by most speakers in favor of standing in front of the room and reciting credentials and thanks yous, with a final glance at their watch and "that's it" when time is up. Which do you think your audience prefers?
the way, your closing shouldn't go where you think it does...
Presentation skills are not static; the most successful and experienced speakers continue to work on their skills -- constantly.
With this system, you'll also get:
A recording of each call for you to play at your convenience (complete with questions from the attendees who were live on the call -- almost like getting to ask your own questions!)
A transcript of each call if you prefer to read rather than listen
A workbook that includes valuable information-packed supplemental handouts
Links to helpful videos, blog posts and articles to support what you're learning
Examples of my own questionnaires and evaluations I use with my clients
Are you ready to take your presentations to a whole new level? Where audiences hang on every word and respond to your call to action -- no questions asked?
This is a 7-part program that you can access at any time and complete at your own pace. As soon as you sign up and your e-mail address is confirmed, you will receive links to access your first session!

"Only halfway through this class and my presentation last night was the best ever!
A last minute request came through on Friday to speak to a class last night. For the first time I was actually excited because I could put my new skills to work, and boy did they work!
I stayed focused that this was about them, not me. Had a specific opening and closing, had three main points and a sub-set of three action points for them (and everyone wrote them down!). I stayed on time and got a laugh - which isn't exactly easy when speaking about loans.
I stayed grounded the entire time - didn't run out of breath, kept a good pace, didn't lose my place/forget what I was saying and had handouts at the end. Thank you, Lisa!!!"

"Lisa is an absolutely fabulous public speaking coach. She helped me prepare for my first ever public presentation at the 2010 IA Summit, which went really well! I really wanted to make the talk compelling for the audience, and Lisa helped take the talk to a whole new level!
"I am deeply thankful for Lisa's assistance. She helped me improve my presentation content, slides and delivery. This has had a positive impact not only on my confidence, but also on the evaluations provided by my audiences.
In fact, my keynote presentation at a recent M&A conference in which 150 were present earned a "your presentation was superb" comment by one of the organizers and would not have been possible without Lisa's coaching.
I highly recommend her services!"

"Lisa is a fantastically talented coach. Not only does she help you organize, clarify and fine tune your presentation skills, she brings a sense of calmness to a potentially scary topic—public speaking!
I was very uptight and worried about a speech that I was to give to at a large women’s conference. By the time the conference rolled around, I was prepared, at ease, and learned so much about my speaking strengths.
I will continue to use Lisa before major presentations. She rocks!"
Certified Life Coach,
"Lisa is an absolute joy to work with. After evaluating one of my speaking events, she provided me with a very constructive and engaging critique. She really helped me pull out the best of my experiences and coached me on how to develop and deliver takeaways that are both insightful and entertaining for my audience.
Working with Lisa did nothing but boost my confidence and ability as a public speaker. Lisa is truly an expert at what she does and she is a fantastic coach."
"It seems every day since our training, we at the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara are finding ways to incorporate the many techniques, suggestions and guidelines for effective public speaking taught by Lisa Braithwaite into our work.
While we all admitted to being nervous at some level about public speaking, Lisa managed to break the process into manageable steps that allowed one and all to feel confident and ready, providing us with an assortment of tools and skills with which to build an interesting, well-organized, and memorable presentation. Who would have thought this would be fun?!!
As staff, we were so motivated by the training that we immediately began the process of reworking our longstanding PowerPoint presentations, with a goal of creating concise, interesting, factual and relevant new slides that will serve as our 'talking points' to share this fall at schools and in other public forums across the county.
We highly recommend Lisa’s training to any organization that hopes to improve the quality and effectiveness of its public speaking presentations."
"Just a simple note to thank you for all your effort. From your sessions I did gain great confidence, set up a simple but effective PowerPoint, related some personal experiences, introduced some humor and did get some laughter.
Most importantly, I was not anxious. I actually enjoyed being on stage in front of about 300 professionals. Could not have done it without your guidance. Thanks again!"
"Thanks Lisa. It was a pleasure to work with you! Your ideas on how to engage the audience and how to highlight the right messages in the PowerPoint slides were very useful.
I really like your approach to relating with the audience in a friendly, funny and empathetic way. I'll be thinking about these tips as I prepare for my classes and for future talks."
"Working with Lisa has been a wonderful experience. Both group and individual sessions have helped me develop unique skills that I now implement in trainings and presentations.
I learned to make sure that I am grounded and well prepared and have received lots of positive feedback.
I also learned and became very interested in making my presentations light and enjoyable without losing content. Thank you Lisa!"
"Thank you so much for assisting me through the daunting speechwriting process! It was such a pleasure working with you, and a lot of fun to get lots of laughs during my Junior League speech. You're a gem."
great; she helped to organize my presentation and worked on my delivery and body language.
"You're fantastic! The coaching greatly exceeded my expectations, and I think I improved by leaps and bounds in just one series of sessions.
I learned how to be more effective as a speaker and how to use PowerPoint slides that people enjoy. I gained a better understanding of what the audience wants, got much better at using my particular talents, and learned what it takes to have a great overall presentation. I received wonderful feedback from the audience and am inspired to continue speaking! Thank
