Presentation coaching feedback:

I had a large presentation coming up for our leadership team and I knew I could use a helping hand… After just a few sessions with Michelle, she helped me to identify gaps between content and slides layout, she helped me to understand the true craft of slide design; less is more! And of course, provided me with constructive feedback for my always improving presentation skills. I truly appreciated what Michelle had to offer. I loved hearing from one of my audience members that my presentation kept them engaged and inspired. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone who wants to present with confidence and ease. Thanks again Michelle, you’re great at what you do!

Michelle Barry Franco’s speaking coaching gave me the confidence I needed to stand in front of 100′s of women for a presentation on social media. Thanks Michelle for your enduring and honest support!    

~Lynn Wenger, Webprodigy, Bend, OR.

She was awesome!  She made this terrifying speaking experience actually fun! I was amazed at how much I was at ease. I will definitely use Michelle in the future and would highly recommend her.    

~Sandi L., Bend, OR.

The presentation was a success with 64 in attendance and great feedback.  The audience participation was high and animatedI felt well prepared and the PowePoint “photos only” kept the audience interested.  Thanks for your honing and refocusing.  It gave me a lot more confidence to just go for it.”

Feedback on Michelle’s training & speaking:

“The training exceeded my expectations. Very relevant and very insightful breakdown and useful tools. I would absolutely recommend it to my colleagues!”

~Jake Brandl, Field Ops Manager, BendBroadband

“I was surprised how you used an “easy going” approach while maintaining control of the group. Everyone can use these skills. Good pace – the training was several hours but it didn’t feel like it.

~Greg Fair, Production Manager, Zolo Media

“Michelle’s training was thought-provoking, engaging and informative. I would recommend this training to any professional who has to engage in any level of group discussion. The training is fun, provocative and jam packed with useful tips and suggestions based on proven results.”   

~Lori Skinner, Sales Supervisor, BendBroadband

Michelle demonstrated what she was teaching very well. Excellent teacher on presentations.”    ~Thor H. Libkie, Field Operations Supervisor, BendBroadband

“I didn’t expect the flexibility and wisdom, as opposed to just tactics and gimmicks as I have seen in the past. Michelle’s style sets a standard and is a great example of a great presentation. Powerful, truthful, new information.”

~Jillian Cole, Marketing & Sales Manager, Zolo Media
