Success Strategies offers Executive Speaking Experience workshop in Napa

Success Strategies, Inc., an executive communication coaching and sales training company headquartered in Northern California, will offer its “Executive Speaking Experience” training class on January 11 and 12, 2017, in Napa, taught by Lynda Paulson, founder and international trainer. The two-day immersion training class provides hands-on, practical skill-building exercises to enable the six participants to gain the most effective one-on-one interaction with Paulson.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
For the anxiety-ridden speaker: Go from fear to true enjoyment of speaking to groups with a true, real confidence.
For the seasoned speaker: Understand what it takes to move you to the next professional level in how you express yourself, your ideas.
For everyone: Develop poise and polish....something everyone admires!

TAKEAWAYS
Learn how to orchestrate an "air of confidence."
Read and get buy-in from any audience.
Express your expertise in clear, persuasive language.
Learn what a "like-factor" is and how to get one.
Create and deliver a talk that people will remember forever.
Gain comfort and skill in how to inspire, inform and motivate.
Say good bye to "fear of speaking" forever.

ABOUT THE CLASS
The class includes individual, hands-on training sessions with personal coaching; 10 video tapings; written evaluations; practical feedback from peers; a manual with tips and techniques of presentation and communication skills; and a hard cover book, “The Executive Persuader,” by Lynda Paulson.

Students learn how to manage their jitters, think on their feet and develop poise and presence in front of an audience. Advanced skills such as handling confrontational issues are also taught along with learning to respond to audience Q&A with authority.

“Lynda empowers people to express themselves in ways they didn’t know they were capable, creating confident, persuasive speakers. Her approach too is clear and direct, and her advice and recommendations extended with sensitivity and spot on accuracy. I sent my first team through Lynda’s Speaker’s Training more than ten years ago, my most recent team in early 2016. Lynda has only gotten better. Time spent in Lynda’s workshops pays dividends for years,” stated Greg Ralston, General Manager of Wine Creek LLC.
