MESSAGING & STRUCTURE
SESSION THREE (2 HOURS)
“Dustin Leffingwell was my instructor. He was very attentive to each student throughout the course. He kept us engaged and was very energetic. Dustin was also very responsive, I called him to clarify something and he got back to me right away. I want him to be at all my presentations to cheer me on lol. Thanks Dustin!”~ Leah Rumore - Site Safety Manager, The Middlesex Corporation
“I loved the flexibility of the virtual training sessions. I travel for work and already lose precious family time. The virtual class was perfect for me! Dustin was very positive and gave me tools/techniques to feel confident speaking. Also, working on the “intent” of the presentation not the “content” has been a great tip in creating power point presentations. I highly recommend Effective Presentations training!”~ Mark, Midland Video Productions
“I recently participated in your public speaking seminar and wanted to commend you on your level of professionalism and outstanding course presentation. The in-class personal presentations and your ability to convey the course material taught me how to take my own presentation skills to the next level. I have truly grown professionally because of your outstanding instruction. Thank you for your dedication to refining the skills of other professionals.”~ Charles Porter, Vice President, Radio Resource Inc.
“Outstanding, incredibly practical, and great fun. ‘The best communication skills workshop I’ve ever had’ and ‘Definitely worth the two days we invested’ were comments I heard from the staff after you led the workshop on communication skills. We are very grateful to you for your time and expertise in providing such a quality training experience for us...”~ Jerry Nelson, Pastor, Southern Gables Church
“I highly recommend the Effective Presentation Skills Workshop. Whether you are a seasoned speaker or just aspiring to speak, this course is a must! I have been teaching and doing public speaking for many years now, and after taking this seminar my presentation skills have absolutely gone to new level. I have noticed a dramatic difference in my confidence and ability to present material in a more meaningful way and the feedback I’ve gotten from audiences has never been better. Mike Fruciano is a great teacher whose style empowers you to be the best you can be. If you aspire to be the best then don’t wait another moment. This course will ensure your success.”~ Amira Watters, President, The Wild Flower “Nature’s Alternative”
