Presentation Power: The Essentials

Are you one of those people who sits in the audience with these thoughts:

  • Why isn’t it me up there?
  • I have to speak in front of a group soon, and I’m scared!
  • I can see myself doing this, but I don’t know how…
  • I can hear the applause for my speech – when do I start?
  • I know in my gut I know I can do this, but I need help!
  • I want to be a public speaker – how do I know who to trust?
  • I know that speaking is the best way to get known as an expert, get clients, and transform lives – but fear and nervousness get in my way – can I learn to do this?

At first I failed and suffered, then I discovered the secrets to becoming a powerful speaker. I can help YOU become a powerful public speaker!

Today I love public speaking, and everything to do with it! I have spent decades studying, practicing and teaching the art and science of public speaking.

My first speaking gig – October 1973

GXL first speaking 1973

We’re talking over 31 years of speaking experience, facilitating, plus teaching at the University of British Columbia and coaching performance and communication for business presenters. I love public speaking and training others, as it allows me to help people change their lives. Through my experience, failures, successes, discoveries and trials I discovered how to help YOU  become a confident, powerful, inspiring speaker – and much, much faster and easier than it was for me.

My focus is to help YOU tell your authentic unique story to the world. I can help YOU deliver your message in a powerful articulate way, so you can tell your story and gain the trust of your audience.

I can help YOU tell your story!

The spoken word has the POWER to transform, influence, inspire and persuade. Nothing happens until communication begins. Great ideas have no impact until they are given voice ~ YOUR voice ~ to deliver your message with impact.  Today I coach teams and individuals to become powerful speakers.

The Presentation Power System consists of a book, coaching, and online training programs.

It is a complete system for both the beginner public speaker and the professional presenter.

1.2 Million Presentations

In North America 1.2 million times a week a presentation is made by executives, managers, sales teams, and employees at every level who find themselves in front of an audience of their own peers presenting their important thoughts and ideas. Millions of presentations will fail, because of the presenter.

Millions more will be received with yawns, judged as uninteresting and boring. Just a few will connect where both the presenter and audience understand each other ~ perfectly in sync ~ discovering common ground ~ and, together, decide to act. Never has the need for such an essential skill permeated our lives so completely. This program offers a unique blend of advanced strategic skills for high-stakes, high-profile business communication opportunities and the critical tactical skills needed every day of YOUR career.

The Presentation Power: The Essentials program will challenge everything you thought you knew about creating and delivering engaging presentations.

The presentations that are the most critical to YOUR success are not the ones delivered on stage in front of hundreds or thousands of rapt listeners. They are the ones YOU deliver every day, looking to connect with the audience – of a few, or many – and have fun and get great results. I am convinced the most crucial element of your professional success (in reaching your goals) is your ability to influence, inspire, motivate and encourage people. © Geoffrey X. Lane

Our Training Online Offers “YOU” The Ultimate Convenience

Our online training allows YOU to be in different ‘time zones’ and geographic locations and still participate simultaneously. It is based upon Internet access, bandwidth and computer equipment.

This means ultimate convenience, from anywhere, any time, as long as there is an Internet connection and a laptop e.g. airports, home, hotel, office, at lunch hours, early morning, end of day. YOU don’t travel, this avoids active time out of the office, delays, expensive flights, hotel and food costs. This means less stress for YOU – no accounting or travel reports.

If YOU are unable to attend a specific event, YOU can logon later and review the recorded training session, add YOUR own comments or questions. YOU can also can join in the ‘Study Team’ online, and contribute YOUR knowledge and experience.

This flexibility encourages the participation of all registered participants, ensuring a better return on your ‘training and education’ investment. The sense of community and cohesiveness is enhanced through ‘Power Teams’ collaborating within the training program.

The Program Tuition

When I first developed the Presentation Power program for the University of British Columbia the cost was $1,300.00 for 10 hours. That didn’t include the extras of travel, car rental, parking, food and hotel expenses, and more importantly time away from work!  Today I want you get the most benefit possible – by using the online model I am able to reduce the price drastically, removing all the “additional” expenses and increasing the program time to 15 hours.

The Presentation Power™ system will show you “how to become a powerful speaker”, using the same principles and techniques I developed for coaching the Olympic presenters, and training international business leaders.

It helps you use your own “authentic expression”, who you really are as a person, to make a powerful connection with your audience. In addition to core skills and presentation techniques, you will learn how to use your personality to your advantage, become more alive in the moment, and respond effectively to questions —whether you are presenting to one person or thousands.

  • Have fun & get great results.
  • Have people listen & take action.
  • Naturally increase your self-confidence.
  • Stop shaking. No more sweaty palms.

Turn YOUR fear into power.

Here are a few of the comments I have received from past clients:

“One thing that held me back from attending was the fact I am already a seasoned speaker. I thought the key to improving was simply to practice more. However, the course created a deep internal shift in me. In two days I gained a level of comfort, which would have taken me many years to develop through practice. I left your program with a sense of confidence about speaking and about myself as a speaker. My rapport with the audience, which has always been a weak point of mine, has taken a quantum leap forward.”
Andrew Barbara-Starky, President & Founder PROCOACH INTERNATIONAL

“There is no hype. This is no “phoney” motivational stuff. Not gimmicky. No bears on bicycles. There is a well ordered well thought out rationale and method that hangs together, makes sense and is simple. And he makes it ~ if not easy & instantly comfortable to do at the very first ~ he makes it possible for the most white knuckled speaker (like me) to get up and do it and feel Ok about having done it ~ in the most gentle way…”
Margo Catamo Author

“Geoffrey you are the quintessential professional. This was apparent from the start of discussions on your engagement. Three words come to mind in our dealings with you, they are ‘proficient’, ‘prepared’ and ‘prompt’. You do what you say you will do, and you helped us adapt our presentation to our specific needs, ensuring success. It has been our privilege to benefit from your valuable insights and you have truly helped us make a success of our CN bid.”
Peter Armstrong, President – CEO Rocky Mountaineer

“I was very impressed by your professionalism and your demonstrated ability to come in to a process in the later stage, quickly assess where you could add value, and produce results! Geoffrey, as a consultant and speaking coach with specific Olympic insight and expertise, you helped us adapt and refine our presentation to a level that the TELUS Team was very proud of. Thank you for your insights. It has been a pleasure working with you.”
Rob Cruickshank, Executive Vice President – Telus
