Do your meetings feel like this?
Are people reading Power Points? Rambling without focus? Lacking energy and enthusiasm? Losing their place? Constantly saying "ah, um, well, like, but, so?" Clearly unprepared and winging it? Boring? Talking way too long? Not getting to the damn point? Wasting time? Not connecting with the audience ?
Is this YOU?
Are You Drowning in Numbers?
If you are carbed out on pie charts, so are they. Data dumping is a common problem and the fastest way to have people bring pillows to your presentation. Facts and figures can glaze eyeballs and brains whether that's a meeting, sales, fundraising, speaking to clients, or anytime you are communicating.

Does Media Make You Nervous?
Your throat tightens, your voice cracks, you stammer all over the place, your train of thought left without you and you can't seem to string two sentences together. Sound familiar? That sound is your message being killed. In most cases, you won't be given the questions ahead of time so you have to learn to razzle dazzle on your feet.

CUT TO THE CHASE:
I don't promise any magic pill, potion, button, breathing exercises, yoga, warm up, stretch, relaxation, visualization, meditation, virgin sacrifice or guru nonsense that is going to get rid of your nervousness. That requires practice.
What I do promise is you learning advanced speaking and presentation techniques including writing, notetaking and rehearsal; the power of storytelling, words, images and humor; how to use the News as a PR tool and how to be live on camera (great for social media); and how to be appealing and engaging virtually is only part of what you get.
These soft skills are always at the top of the list for employers, both for seeking new hires and for promotions. The applications are far reaching.
This course will change how you communicate.
The material was designed with one, singular purpose in mind: To help you become a more proficient, efficient and effective communicator so you can truly connect with your audience and stop wasting their time and yours.
You'll get the most out of it by diving in with Elevenacity which is more than Tenacity and better than Halfacity.

Let me be blunt, I friggin' HATE spam mail so you won't have some 14 day drip campaign banging your inbox like a screen door and winding up the banana to a mail monkey here!

Nicole Lowe-Matthew 25 AIDS Services
"I learned more in a 5 minute presentation from him than I have in many other storytelling webinars combined."
Travis Johnson- The Nonprofit Architect Podcast
"Lewis not only practices what he preaches but he teaches in a way that anyone can implement these time saving techniques and everyone can Get To The Damn Point!"
Dr. Ash Javer- Missouri Institute of Regenerative Health
He took a pre-designed medical sales presentation and made it his own, adding stories and humor to really help drive conversions. The more Lewis was allowed to shape the material to his own, the higher the conversion rates were, reaching an average 75%, putting him on par with the top presenter in the whole, nationwide, company.
