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…
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!
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)
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)
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.
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.
Merging social media with coaching is a wise business decision on their part… The synergy between Eric and Trefor and the energy that they bring will no doubt lead to a big success at Rhapsody, and it will lead to the success of their clients. (See it on YouTube)
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.
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…
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.
