“Speaking in front of a group” ranks at the top of any list of fears in the United States. Paradoxically, the ability to deliver an effective, persuasive presentation is considered one of the most vital skills for success in life and business. Larry's proven coaching system reconciles these two contradictory facts, showing how fear can be converted into enthusiasm-generating energy, which, when coupled with proven speaking techniques, can win over even the toughest, most difficult audiences.

Participants in his workshops acquire easy-to learn techniques which can be immediately put into practice. They learn to:

1) Develop solutions to the problems of audiences;

2) Avoid using “Uh,” “You know,” the boring monotone, the reading of slides and other mannerisms which annoy and distract audiences;

3) Intersect their objective with the needs and concerns of audience members so these people "buy-in" to what the presenter is advocating.

Among Larry’s coaching specialties is working with engineers and IT experts whose companies are competing for government or commercial contracts. These technical experts are required to deliver the oral presentation, often the “tie-breaker" determining which of the competing firms “Brings Home the Bacon.”
