I work with companies and organizations like yours that are filled with talented creatives.

The only problem is your most talented designers and techy problem solvers aren’t so hot at explaining their ideas and influencing their business partners.

Together we take them from rambling and tongue-tied to persuasive and engaging so they can sell their ideas and demonstrate their expertise.

Below are sample workshops that teach your employees how to build their presence, create engaging presentations, and be seen as experts.


Stop Panicking and Start Speaking

Improve your team’s presentation and public speaking skills so they can clearly and concisely articulate the vision and demonstrate the value of their work. Your team will learn to:

  • Engage their audience and hold the room’s attention

  • Clearly and confidently talk about their work so they can be seen as experts

  • Grow confidence at the front of the room so they can own their projects and manage their clients

Public speaking training isn’t just for those who are terrified of talking to an audience. Madeline pushed me to keep my thoughts on the narrative arc of presenting. As a result of her training workshops and a quick followup, I revamped my introduction to include a story and people seem to love it.”
