CPAs are looked upon as the ones to provide financial and strategic leadership to their organizations and their communities. Having the knowledge and acumen is one thing; but getting up and speaking, persuading and selling to a group of Senior Managers, Board Directors, Clients and Customers is something entirely different.

This session teaches the core basics of effective speaking, presenting and persuading, and provides opportunities to practice these learnings in class in front of all the other participants.


  • Understanding and knowing the three Fundamentals to Great Presentations - the audience, the topic and yourself
  • Learning and practicing the essential delivery skills that everyone should possess
  • Incorporating the most persuasive words to use in your presentations
  • Perfecting the skill of “thinking on your feet”


This program is designed for all who want to further develop and enhance their public speaking skills; to those who firmly believe in Warren Buffet’s assertion that “ people can improve their value by 50 percent just by learning the communication skill of public speaking ”.
