Best results are seen in smaller teams, in group work over a period of time. As this is an advanced session on specific communication techniques, smaller groups are ideal to give participants ample time to practice based on real-life client scenarios. Some groups also choose individual coaching for select members after the training is over.

"I have to deliver what most people consider boring, administrative presentations at quarterly business meetings. I was never looking forward to these meetings, as people often fell asleep. After coaching one-on-one with Jennifer, I learned critical skills to engage the audience and make them interested in the administrative functions of the office. I did not think it was possible, but it was and is!"
Team Lead in Bangalore with almost 20 years' experience

"I never used to think much about presentation skills because I was only talking to clients on the phone. I also thought because I knew the topic, I did not need to prepare a presentation. I was wrong. After learning a simple way to prepare a presentation and speak about it in an interesting way over the phone, my manager allowed me to handle a client demo with successful results. Since then, I have been handling client demos and even have represented my company at some tech conferences!"
Software Engineer

"We hired Jennifer to deliver this session to help the team break the ice in general situations. The team was pretty stiff and quiet with the client on the phone and onsite. The team also learned how to present in face to face meetings and be interactive audience members."
Bangalore based team lead
