Winning Oral Presentation Training

We coach your proposal team to deliver the same outstanding proposal orally as you have on paper. We believe you win by creating an excellent solution to what the customer asked for in their RFP and then selling your proposal to the evaluators with confidence, credibility, enthusiasm and professionalism.

There has been an increase in requests for an oral component on Government proposals, because the evaluators want to see and hear whom they are hiring. Therefore, it is vital that you create a “lead presence:” that you create a picture of your team as a confident, professional, and poised group of credible experts that the evaluators will enjoy working with for the duration of the contract.

We specialize in coaching technical and professional experts who have limited or no previous presentation experience and suddenly are thrust into high-pressure presentation roles.

Our Goals for Your Team

  • To make your oral presentation come alive by bringing forth the individual passion, expertise and enthusiasm of each presenter.
  • To give your team complete control over all aspects of their presentation so that they deliver the message precisely the way they envision.

  • Presentation delivery techniques

Immediately after the first class I noticed a dfference in how I controlled my voice and pitch while conducting my meetings. The focused breathing and specifically talking on the exhale was an eye opener. I am looking forward to the next lesson!
