When your opportunity knocks, will you be ready?
This week marks one of my favorite times of year: the beginning of college football! While I never played the sport, I’ve become a big fan, and I follow it as my schedule allows (which is less and less with each passing year).
Last year I had the pleasure […]
My son decided (at the last minute, per his custom) to try out for the football team at his high school (international readers, this is American football, which is played mostly with your hands). We’ve played before in recreation leagues – this is our first foray into school teams.
He missed summer workouts. He missed team […]
Like millions of families this summer, we will soon pack up and go on a summer vacation. Unlike Clark Griswold, we won’t load up the station wagon and go to Walley World (and I likely won’t see it, but sequels are rarely as good as the original).
We will spend a considerable amount of time and money to […]
“I have a minor in Speech Communications that was earned by taking 60 hours of college level courses. That college level training didn’t come close to the practical skills I learned from Alan Hoffler’s Speaker Circle training at StepUp. I feel more comfortable and competent making presentations as a result of his training. I know I better represent StepUp and its mission when speaking to groups. And I have watched the entire Speaker Circle group transform their presentations from a series of “uh” and “so” to compelling and memorable stories. Without exception, I would recommend Alan Hoffler’s training workshops to anyone seeking improvement of their presentation skills.”
“I have been fortunate to work with Alan on several occasions and have always found his support to be exactly what I needed. His classes are outstanding and I recommend them to anyone who speaks for a living. The content is excellent and the classes are not only powerful but fun. Recently, I asked Alan to coach me in the writing of an important speech. He was not only supportive and generous with his time, but he also has amazing insight. His guidance helped make my speech much more powerful than anything I could have written on my own. Thanks Alan!”
I attended Alan’s 2-day “Powerful, Persuasive Speaking” workshop. Wow. I’ve taken several very good public speaking courses in the past, but Alan’s class brought it all together for me. It made things click. It was like watching magic as Alan coached the participants—every single person improved dramatically. And the skills taught benefited not only formal public speaking, but interviews, meeting facilitation, and everyday conversations. I highly recommend Alan Hoffler and MillsWyck Communications to experienced speakers, novice speakers, and everyone in between. I look forward to more coaching from Alan in the future!
Essential for your personal development. Do not fear the class. The atmosphere is very open to learning in a low stress environment.
This is an investment into your ability to influence people. You cannot begin to quantify the R.O.I.
