65% of women who give presentations to market their business “get through it” but wonder if they did OK”.

You want more than “ok.” You want your presentation to attract your ideal prospects, wow them with your generous expertise, and inspire them to want MORE with YOU!

“If only I knew how”

These are the top 5 speed bumps women entrepreneurs told me they want to get over so they can rock their presentations and grow their business:

“I want to know how to calm my nerves, stay focused, and not ramble.”

” I want to know how to organize my presentation so that I know where I’m headed and why.”

“I want to know how to easily interact and keep people’s attention!”

” I want to know how to best use slides and props.”

“I want to comfortably give a call to action for people to say ‘YES! I want to take the next step!”

Get Red Cape Certified and ROCK your next presentation!

In the Power Up Your Presentation workshop you will learn these 5 things and more.

You don’t have to be a “big” personality, super extroverted, or naturally funny to be a successful presenter. (In fact, sometimes those who are end up being very entertaining, but don’t walk away with new, quality connections for follow-up.)

The key to being a successful presenter is having a proven road map and practical skills to inform, engage, and attract prospects to grow your business.

Imagine taking your existing presentation – or creating a new one – and being super clear and confident about how to start, how to keep people engaged, and how to comfortably ask for people to take the next step. That’s what the Power Up Your Presentations Workshop is all about!

Mary walked us step by step through the presentation process. Her pointers and examples were invaluable to me, especially since public speaking isn’t my strength. With her expertise and encouragement, even the faint of heart can present effectively. Her workshop was a smart business investment.

This workshop is for women entrepreneurs who…

1.  Want to present more powerfully and confidently – because that feels good and because confidence attracts.

With a proven presentation road map that includes specific strategies and techniques, your confidence will increase because know for sure where you’re going and how to get there. Plus, you will have the rare opportunity to give them a test run and get personal feedback before presenting to a high-stakes audience.

2. Want to dramatically reduce the time it takes to create a new presentation so you can start using it sooner to attract new customers, clients, or donors.

No more wondering how to get started or sorting through a ton of possibilities. You will learn a presentation outline that will be your go-to road map that you can use again and again. For each “stop” on the map you will have a menu of options to choose from that are simple and effective.

3. Want to improve an existing presentation to produce better results – to get more prospects to say “Yes, I want more.” 

You will learn exactly how to improve 3 key parts of your presentation that will immediately ramp up your results: your opening, interaction techniques, and your “call to action.” You will get specific openers, engagement strategies, and sample call to action scripts that you can customize.

Mary’s years of experience as a nationally-recognized speaker, along with her “bodacious” personality kept us all tuned in to the power of creating an unforgettable presentation in your business.  I learned more in those sessions than I ever learned from webinars, seminars or books.

What are “less than” presentations costing YOU?

That’s the real question. If you’re not attracting enough prospects with your presentations, then you aren’t generating the revenue results you want and need. If you implement the skills, strategies and coaching in this workshop you will set yourself up to easily earn back the financial cost and much more. Of course, feeling confident that you rocked your presentation is priceless!
