High Impact Presentations (HIP) – live and in-person in Ohio

July 22 & July 23

Consistently one of our most popular courses, we are following local guidance as we once again make High Impact Presentations (HIP) available in a face-to-face fashion, this time July 22 & 23 in Cleveland.  Expect social distancing and a small group to help determine safety.  This course is great if you want to be more persuasive while presenting or want to use facts and info more effectively.

If you’re not inclined to do a face-to-face course or if you’re in an at-risk group related to Covid-19, this is NOT the course for you.  I have online alternatives that will help you become a more effective presenter – whether you’re a beginner or you’re already above average.  Just ask me, and I’ll match you with the best fit for your own needs.  We also have HIP tentatively scheduled for Pittsburgh in late September if the situation allows.


Build Your Scalable Selling Machine (9 webinar Masterclass) Fall 2020

Tue, Sep 8, 2020, 12:00 PM – Tue, Nov 10, 2020, 1:30 PM

Online Course for heads of revenue generation & customer attainment

We’ve been asked to do it again this fall, so we are.  But we’re turning it to ALL virtual (Tuesdays at noon); adding relevance to the emerging market dynamics; and adding two private consulting sessions for each participating company.  So we’re enhancing the series that previously participating executives called “an utter necessity”.  

If you’re in charge of your organization’s customer acquisition or revenue generation strategies, you’ll want to participate in this coaching series/course with other CxOs and VPs so you can better modify your strategies and tactics to scale your sales as you negotiate the realities of the new environment.  Co-presented with Catalyst Connection.
