"If I started my public speaking journey today, I would cut out the long trial and error process and go straight to Lisa Vanderkwaak for coaching. She'll teach you how to own the stage and make a lasting impact on your audience. As a result, you can get booked again and again."
"I was so excited to get my first speaking invitation as CEO of my own company. I immediately contacted Lisa Vanderkwaak. After her coaching, I found I was much more at ease and confident about being able to deliver a speech that I was proud of. My goal was to build my membership. The closing Lisa helped me develop garnered a 63% closure rate. Lisa - many many thanks for your expertise and the gracious way in which your deliver it."
"So if you are thinking that you are not a speaker, and don’t see the need to connect (with a speaking coach)– THINK AGAIN!! As a direct result of implementing the tools Lisa offers in her speaking tips, I have become a better writer and a better speaker. I have connected more deeply with my audience and am a better listener. All important pieces for my business growth."
"I was actually stuck, not knowing what to do next.The information I received will help fast forward my business by about 3 years.Through Lisa's coaching I came up with a program and gained new tools on how to present it. If you want to stand on stage and be seen as a professional speaker, then Lisa's programs are for you."
"I had the wonderful opportunity to attend Lisa's One Day Speaking Bootcamp.I almost cancelled the night before because I was so afraid of speaking in public. Boy did I learn a lot. I was so glad I went. It is a "must do" course for anyone having to speak in public."
I was a beginner speaker without any formal training. One of my biggest hurdles was preparation. I would spend way too much time preparing to for a short talk and feel exhausted afterwards. I wanted to know if there way easier way to prepare and how to grab the attention of the audience. After applying the tools I learned from Lisa’s coaching program, I now spend less time in preparing and feel more confident in what content to include and more clarity around the outcomes I want to achieve. I know how to give a clear roadmap to keep my audience engaged from start to finish. What I learned from Lisa really shifted my thinking around public speaking. I always thought either a person is good at speaking or not. I was surprised to discover that any body can (become a great speaker) if you want to. The best speakers became great because they were teachable, applied the formulas and mastered the skills. I learned a lot from taking Lisa’s coaching programs and realized how much more I still have to learn.
I liked how the course was delivered, that it was simple to access and I could do it from my home. It was way more personal than I expected. The virtual classroom experience actually seemed better than a live classroom in lots of ways and I really enjoyed the feedback from the other women participants. Although the course was intensive, I learned so much and realized how much more I need to learn.
