It has been proven that the majority of people fear public speaking more than death. Karen can turn that around for you and make it fun.

How many trade shows have you been to where the presenter is dry and hard to watch? Be honest, how many times is your own staff giving that presentation? They are practically unintelligible, even with a microphone. The audience stays for the give-aways, but is really not all that interested because they can't hear or understand your presenter.

Most technical folks are not trained in public speaking. So even if they have to speak for only 10 minutes, it is a serious challenge for them. They often dread doing the work because it is so very terrifying for them, but they do it because it is their job doing so. Karen will give your staff the tools they need to be comfortable presenting at shows.
