Public speaking is an opportunity like no other to differentiate yourself and your organization… to tell the story of why your content is important and why it matters… to really make a difference.

What People Are Saying
As someone who works and teaches in the design industry, I thought I would take the Public Speaking Accelerator to improve my classroom presentations. With attention spans getting shorter these days, I wanted to learn how to really get my students to pay attention. To my surprise, I found the day had the biggest impact on my presentations to other industry professionals. Rhapsody can really teach you how to capture your audience’s attention quickly, and keep them engaged. My presentations have benefited dramatically from this one day of training. I highly recommend it to anyone!
Eric was a true professional. He was able to engage and compel the Sales Team right off the bat. By the end of the session, our team was enthused and eager to implement our learnings for our next presentation.
I wanted to send a quick message of gratitude for spending the day with my team to help enhance our public speaking performance. I personally benefited from the session and was able to immediately put your teachings into action. Your preparation for the session was the key to such an engaging day. I had never worked with a trainer that took the time to research our goals and design a program that focused on each attendees personal development.
I was able to put what I learned into action right away. Now I always start my presentation with an impactful question or statement that really catches people’s attention. This has helped me drive home my main points with the audience, so they leave my presentations remembering more of what I shared. I enjoyed the entire day. From the practical application of the skills to the healthy lunch menu, I can’t say enough about my first experience with a Rhapsody Accelerator.
Our experience with Eric is that he totally over delivers as a keynote speaker. We invited Eric speak to business owners for the Orleans Health & Wellness Expo. He remarkably engaged and energized the audience with his brilliance, humour and captivating talk. We were very impressed with Eric’s professionalism and integrity and we highly recommend him as a dynamic and top quality speaker within the business world. –
The most powerful part for the day was learning a simple and effective system for creating my presentations. I now have a road map to follow, which makes it easier and faster to put together an impactful talk. Eric has a way of creating a safe environment where even the most reluctant of presenters feels comfortable. I enjoyed being part of a group of people who had a wide range of speaking experience, from zero to 20+ years. The best part was being able to practice the skills throughout the day. Instead of a long boring day of lectures, it was a great interactive way to get real world application.
Eric is one of the most genuine presenters and coaches I have encountered. Nothing seems forced and he’s not a “rah-rah” guy. Instead, what shines through is that he’s very passionate about his craft. This was one of the most authentic training experiences I have ever had the pleasure of attending.
I am so very grateful to Rhapsody Strategies for the excellent training. Eric Deschamps is an exceptional public speaker who really taught us so much. Everything about the day was great – the space, the pace, the people in the class, the lunch and breaks. Really it was first rate. I am feeling confident in my ability to deliver a compelling presentation now!
You took on the task of getting to know your audience prior to meeting them so the day would be relevant to each of us. Even after a full day of training, your enthusiasm and energy level remained high, which kept us inspired. I would definitely recommend your training and coaching to businesses, large and small, that want to improve their performance.
Eric is one of the most interesting, passionate, engaging, compelling, thoughtful and articulate speakers that I have ever heard. I would certainly recommend him for your next meeting or conference.
