My experience has been nothing short of amazing. Leron Barnes has done a fantastic job during the 3 week class. I have learned so much and im super excited on what happens next. I highly recommend this to everyone!!
Took the Public Speaking class, and loved it, Dustin was great at teaching us, it was amazing to watch how much we progressed in just 2 days from the videos of our very first presentation to our final one. I would definely take the class again and HIGHLY recommend this class

This was awesome! Breelyn was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable! Thank you for teaching me something new :)
Super friendly! They made a difficult class so much easier to do!
I had a single important presentation to give and got coaching from Effective Presentations. The advice and coaching I got was incredibly useful and relevant and I was able to deliver a great speech. The attention to detail was amazing and the advice was highly actionable. The speech was very well received and I have no doubt that the coaching I got was a major factor. I feel very grateful to Mike and Breelyn for their help and would highly recommend their services to anyone who wants to improve their public speaking skills or prepare for a high stakes presentation.
I have had such positive interactions with ALL of the people with Effective Presentations. They have been accommodating, kind and a pleasure to work with..! I highly recommend the course. I went in skeptical and came out a confident speaker and communicator. Dusty was an extraordinary instructor. I hope to take more courses in the future. Thank you Effective Presentations!Marty AppletonFeeding America West Michigan

Breelyn was great!!
Dusty was an amazing trainer. I'm very grateful for the new tools I have for Effective Presentations! Thank you.
Just finished a great three-week workshop on public speaking with Jordan. These classes are well worth the money and are the subject matter is really tailored to the individuals in the class. I feel better prepared to present in my career and would certainly enroll in another course should the opportunity arise!
great, practical presentation skills with practice and examples-
I highly recommend Effective Presentations! One of the best seminars I have ever attended! I was very impressed with the facilitator, Dustin Leffingwell. Dusty was outstanding and the other participants were a total delight!The ability to learn new concepts, be video-taped and watch them back, along with feedback from Dusty and the other participants was extremely beneficial. It will certainly make a difference to improving and my presentation skills!
Jordan Jones was an excellent instructor, he gave great, real-time feedback. The class was enjoyable and I learned a lot.
Breelyn is an amazing instructor. Very welcoming and motivating. She met my expectations 100% and I will recommend others to join this class. I loved every second of it. Thank you
Breelyn was outstanding. Great class
What an amazing two day’s I had at the presentation workshop. Dustin was a great instructor, and he kept the class fully engaged with a ton of fun presentations. The tools I came away with after two days has changed my life. I highly recommend this course and can’t wait to take the next course with Effective Presentations.
This was one of the best and most useful PDs I’ve ever experienced. Breelyn is an exceptionally gifted presenter and trainer! Thank you!
Breelyn did an awesome job and really helped me be a better public speaker. Cant thank her enough.
Breelyn was amazing! She shared content in a way that was easily understandable and transferable to our needs. Her sincerity made us feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable!
Breelyn was engaging and brilliant! Loved every moment of the training.
Jordan Jones put on a multi-session training on presentations that was very personable and actionable. I appreciated his insights, findings from research, and encouragement through the different sessions.
Jordan is a phenomenal instructor, this class was awesome. I learned more than I ever expected. This course is spot on for anyone who desires to learn public speaking and even more for those who already are. In three sessions everyone was better than when we came in.I'm definitely going to request more trainings with Effective Presentations as well as I would Highly recommend these courses which have proven to be life changing.~Paula Y. Wilkins
I felt Jordan delivered a great virtual course. I recommend it for anyone looking to take a step forward in their public speaking abilities!
I really enjoyed The Effective Presentations Workshop and walked away feeling more confident in my speaking skills. Jordan Jones is gifted with the ability to re-shape our verbal presentations, without causing the participants to feel criticized. I saw significant improvement in my presentations and the skills of other group members. Thank you, Jordan and Effective Presentations.
This was by far the most practical workshop I’ve ever attended. At the end of day one, I came away with solid techniques to practice and hone into skills. There are a lot of opportunities to practice and get feedback, both from other participants and the instructor, which was invaluable. Speaking of instructors, Mike was fantastic! He understands public speaking/presenting so well and can quickly assess your shortcomings and provide immediate ways to improve. He’s also super supportive and confidence boosting. I’d definitely take other workshops with him. 10/10 RECOMMEND!
Mike is a terrific speaker. Great session.
The two day workshop exceeded my expectations. 5 stars is not enough to describe how phenomenal this Public Speaking Training Course was. I was fully engaged throughout. It was filled with a variety of fun exercises that build and improve on your presentation skills. The difference that I feel towards presenting is astounding, and I’m amazed that this was possible in just two days. I can’t remember any course that I’ve taken that I’ve enjoyed more. Thanks Mike for conducting the trainingwith enormous energy, enthusiasm, belief and conviction. Great workshop and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be a more effective presenter.Ed Chavez
I signed up dreading this class but left with so much confidence. This is definitely the best training I've ever attended. Mike does a great job at coaching and providing individual feedback to everyone in attendance. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for help with public speaking/executive presence/giving presentations.
Great environment and amazing instructors!! They provide you with the right tools to succed and with feedback that is efficient. Hands on right out of the gate.
Breelyn had amazing energy, great tips and concrete examples!
Trainer Breelyn was an outstanding facilitator. She was engaging, informative and fun. Most trainings that I have participated in drag on but Breelyn kept the class on track, on time and on point.
Great content to keep us engaged. Never felt it was 7 hour long training.
Jordan was an amazing instructor. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking to improve or gain best practices while public speaking. The small class format created the opportunity to receive one on one instruction while learning from your peers. Thank you Jordan!
Took a course through work with Jordan.I was kind of shocked how effectively he was able to condense so many important facets of presentin g and speaking down into a small handful of simple and easy focus areas. The course was highly universal and I will be making strong recommendations based on my positive personal experience.
Our team was trained on Effective Presentations by Dustin Leffingwell. Without one single slide, Dustin was able to create a very engaging and interactive environment of learning and coaching. The exercises were not only helpful but fun and the 2 days pass by so quickly! Amazing 2 days!
We had a wildly successful training last week with a team that was able to meet for the first time since the pandemic began. Want to talk about trust building? This is the program and Dusty is the trainer for you! The exercises were lively and encouraged a team of acquaintances to establish rapport and be vulnerable within the first 90-minutes of the start time. Great lessons learned and wonderful memories. Thanks to EP as a whole, Mark, and Dusty!
Had an awesome time with Breelyn. I would definitely recommend
I enjoyed every moment of this 2 day workshop! Our facilitator, Breelyn, was outstanding as she was very interactive and engaging with positive, effective energy in her delivery. I would absolutely recommend this workshop to others. I walked away with many more tips and tricks in my toolbox on becoming a more dynamic, effective presenter. This was time well spent for sure!! Thanks so much Effective Presentations!!!
I loved this course with Jordan. He is an amazing teacher and presenter. His natural approach and easy going attitude allowed me to relax, feel comfortable in my own skin and forget about the anxieties around speaking. The lessons shared throughout added clarity, valuable insight and critical information for my ongoing journey in public speaking. I feel more confidence and inspiration to take it to the next level. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is seeking to gain answers, motivation and the necessary tools to become a successful presenter. Thank you so much!
Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this course I learned how important it is in life to have effective communication skills that I didn't have before, in addition I really want to thank the instructor Jordan for his time and content that he shared with us I can honestly say in just a short amount of time anybody can learn good content in depth if they haven't done so yet, also he educated us with great examples with live speakers, demonstrations in class on how we can have more effective communication publicly or individually and actually doing hands on work which was great to be a part of. Thanks again for the time, education, and continuous support with us I will definitely keep in touch.
Dusty is the man. I walked into training expecting a slide deck and another boring training session. He kept the room engaged for 8 hrs and I probably progressed more as a speaker in that time than during my entire career. If you have a position where you talk to anyone, ever, I would 100% recommend working with these guys. I’ve already recommended that my company have Dusty back out for a few other people to attend the training, and I will be taking part again.
We are very happy to have a training session with Dustin who surprised us with his professional background, training skills and engagement. This is one of the most amazing training I have had.
The staff at Effective Presentations are some of the best in the business. The class leads to a significant improvement in presentation skills by the end of class and the participants always enjoy the experience.
Very effective! Improvement shown in less than 8 hours.
Breelyn was an amazing trainer. She was extremely knowledgable and prepared. She made everyone feel at ease and really made the experience fun. Everyone improved and gained some valuable pearls as well as areas for continued focus.
This helped me be more confident when presenting! Thank you Breelyn!
This class was great! Mike and his staff are very supportive and proactive in communicating with the class and providing feedback. Mike and his staff create an effective learning environment where the students can relax, reduce their nerves, and really notice improvements in their communication skills.
Awesome class and instructors! Very practice-based rather than lecture based which was very appreciated. I definitely walked away with noticeable improvements in my delivery! Thanks EP!
Just completed the two day Effective Presentations training and it was incredible. I learned so much about myself, met an awesome group of individuals and enjoyed a memorable experience. These trainers will improve your communication skills personally and professionally!
Effective Presentations truly brought me to the next level of public speaking! I went in to improve my presentations for large groups and left with the knowledge and skills to move forward with the lasting professional feedback that I use daily. Mike Fruciano and his team are wonderful, engaging and supportive. They are a wise choice!
Great introduction class. Everybody has markedly improved skills at the end! Breelyn is an amazing coach!
The continuous development of presentation skills are critical for our teams success and Effective Presentations delivered! Thorough, effective and a fantastic team.
I thoroughly enjoyed by course by Effective Presentations and would recommend our trainer Jordan 100%. The sessions were well paced with a good balance of theory and practice, and I believe at the end of the course I am much more confident and competent in giving presentations.
I highly recommend Effective Presentations for anyone that has to speak to people on a daily basis and/or do presentations. The skills learned can be used in any situation and will help everyone. I look forward to utilizing all the tools I've learned in this course.
The Effective Presentations Workshop was terrific. Mike did a great of instructing and providing suggesting.
Steve was filled with so much wisdom and knowledge and shared profound information. Thank you for the experience!
I've learned a lot from Effective Presentations classes.
This workshop is amazing. It is easy to follow and the practice exercises and sessions had our whole class improve by leaps and bounds. Breelyn taught us with such energy and enthusiasm, learning was a breeze. I am already applying my learning to my regular meetings and find it very effective.
Mike and his team came to our office for a 1 day Speaker Training workshop and I would highly recommend them!! Not only was it an incredible learning experience for our Sales Team, it was also an incredible team building experience. Public speaking can be very nerve wracking! Watching our reps grow through the video recordings, conversations, an various exercises was hugely rewarding. They are still talking about it today! If you are thinking about doing any sort of public speaking training, definitely go with Effective Presentations!
I just finished a two day course on Presentation Skills and it was great. Breelyn provided tips and strategies that I will be able to use during sales calls, presentations and every day conversations. And it was fun!
Dustin is a charismatic public speaker that has mastered his craft. We had a two day workshop and everyone was engaged the entire time. There were no ground rules (put your phone away, no laptops, etc...) but nobody picked up their technology outside of lunchtime. Everyone that attended has raved about their experience and what they learned. It was fun, but it pushed you out of your comfort zone at the same time. It turned out to be a great team building event as well. We will absolutely have Dustin back to see us again.
Breelyn and the team at Effective Presentations were amazing to work with. They set expectations early on and delivered on all of them. Their presentation was lively and engaging, all of our staff really enjoyed it.
I learned so much from these guys! I feelMore confident my future presentations will be 100x better for it. Thanks!!
I had a great experience with Effective Presentations! I was in the market to continue to develop my public speaking skills and was scrolling though google. I came across Effective Presentations and read some good reviews. I signed up for a live course. The course was postponed due to COVID and Effective Presentations offered me their online course in the interim for free! I later went on to the live 2 day training. Both the online course and the live course were amazing! I learned very important skills and had many opportunities to practice them in both the online and live training courses. I would highly recommend taking both courses with Effective Presentations! Thank you Mike, Breelyn, and Mark from Effective Presentations!
Jordan was engaging and interacted with everyone based on their personality and experiences. His thoughts and expertise made everyone feel welcomed and comfortable while presenting. I would recommend him for future training classes.
This workshop was great! Who knew learning could be so much fun! Mike and his team are professional, practical, insightful, and encouraging. I highly recommend this workshop for those who want to improve their presentations and day to day communications. I now have many skills that I never even knew I needed. Practicing these fundamental skills will give me the confidence to share my message far and wide. Thank you Mike!
Best presentation class I have had. I do SEO for a living and have to be client facing much of the time and there were several things I needed to work on. When you take this class you come to realize we all have our own way of speaking even though we try to model off people who we think are great speakers. These classes helped my bad habits of eye contact, rushing, breathing, and filler words. Great class.
I do work for companies all over the world and reached out to Effective Presentations in the US. I wanted to improve my public speaking and communication skills. I live in Pakistan and the virtual training exceeded my expectations. It was fun to be with a few other individuals in our workshop and see how much better we all were at the end.
Great for companies of all sizes. Not another stuffy corporate workshop.
Highly recommend to elevate presentation styles and to build on the skills your team already has. Effective Presentations made the materials bite size and easy to implement for our team and we have already seen immediate improvements.
EP met my expectation and really enjoyed the interaction. I was completely engaged and didn't even bother to check my phone our get easily bored, Dustin provided an excellent value and great presenter/communicator. Definitely going to recommend to my fellow colleagues and looking forward to a next upcoming training. Thank you!
It was such a pleasure to have Mike Fruciano and Kara Flynn conduct a successful Sales Training with our teams in Pittsburgh. Mike and Kara made an all-day training an actual joy while getting down to business and setting our team up for success!If you want your sales team to be successful ~ you need to start with Effective Presentations!
I Learned a ton! Mike did a fantastic job.
I took this class in Chicago and I was definitely the youngest in the class. Despite the age difference I got as much out of this class as everyone else. It was worth both my time and money, I am so happy I did it. If you are looking to suppress public speaking fears and sharpen your presentation skills this class is for you.
I can't say enough good things about Mike Fruciano and this class. It was only two days, but I took more from those two days than I have from week-long classes. Superbly structured to make even the most novice of speakers feel at ease, it was fun, engaging and most of all incredibly helpful in leveling up my presentation skills. If you're looking for a way to improve your presentation skills, you've found it.
I just completed the 2-day in-person training in Chicago with Mike Fruciano. This class was amazing! As much as I enjoyed the virtual class I took, nothing beats the experience of presenting in front of other people. The class was small (our session was 7 people) so everyone had an opportunity to present multiple times and learn from the instructor (who was great!) and from each other. I highly recommend!
