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)
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.
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.
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.

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 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.
