What Customers Say About Us
Today, I presented in front of more than 1000 people in my organization and I felt proud that it all went smoothly. I also received several appreciations.
I wanted to send a note of thanks for all the knowledge you imparted upon us.
In a short period of time, I learned a key concept to making an effective presentation: instead of considering myself, present from the listener’s point of view; add value to their lives. That calms my nerves from the get go – it’s not about me!

This would give other professionals an opportunity to look at presentations from both sides of the fence. It allowed me to realize that we are talking to the audience and the presentation is for them and not to worry what you think.
[The workshop] helped me realize there is more to public speaking than just talking. Anyone uneasy about speaking in public could benefit by applying just one of the V-Deck components. I won’t be a public speaker overnight, but some of the skills learned helped me feel more “at ease” when speaking.

The V-Deck™ is the GPS for an effective presentation. I would recommend this workshop because it helped me assess myself by watching a recording of myself while presenting. Rob is a great teacher! I plan to use the feedback on my presentation at our User Conference in September!
I would recommend this workshop because it will help you become a better presenter.
The V-Deck™ was a new way of thinking about presentations! The workshop had a really good flow.
This workshop had a lot of FANTASTIC INFORMATION and you can see immediate results through viewing the presentation. Thanks, Rob!
This is just a note of thanks for the informal education you provided to me a year or two ago about laying out and delivering effective presentations. I did a presentation last week to a group of individuals who were >55 (average age of roughly 75) and it was such a success! I shared my points at the start, provided stories, changes of inflection and was so comfortable with the content that I didn't need to have bulleted slides. My slide deck consisted of photos that allowed for feeling and emotion vs just the same ol', same ol'.
I had a great time and the audience shared with the event organizer that the talk was easy to follow, informative, and they were excited about having something to take home with them (I had a handout as well). One participant even called me "inspiring".
So, thank you for your help and direction those many years ago!
