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…
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.
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.
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.
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…
They get that the better you become the better they become… They’re compassionate and empathetic, but at the same time they are a driving force. So I’m very honoured to be part of this. I wish I would have done this five years ago… (See it on YouTube)
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.
I thought taking on a business coach would be a waste of time and money but once we brought on Eric as our business coach, our company has taken on a concrete direction of growth. Instead of being embarrassed of having a business coach, I am proud to say I have one. (See it on YouTube)
Our lives have improved personally, our business has done incredibly, and there’s no way that we would be where we are if it wasn’t for the energy that’s been put in from Rhapsody… (See it on YouTube)
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!
