Executive Technical

Are you getting nods and polite applause from your presentations? Wouldn't you rather secure
funding, contracts, partnerships or new clients?

You may have a better story than your competition, but you may lose a contract or funding opportunity because they tell their story better. Facts do not speak for themselves! The D'Arcy Method will give you the speaking skills for preparing and delivering clear, concise, and compelling presentations so that your listeners accept, remember, and respond positively. You will learn strategies for managing your fear of public speaking so that you are comfortable and can focus on your audience. I'll help you develop skills to assure the message you intend to send is the message your audience receives!
