Coaching & VIP Days

Do you want to lead workshops, seminars, training sessions, or talks but don’t know where to start when it comes to designing them?

Or, do you already run sessions but are having a hard time getting attendees engaged? Are some of them dozing off or turning to their smartphones for something to do?

Are you working too hard at the front of the room?

Do you want to know how to get your audiences engaged, learning, remembering, and using your stuff?

Do you want people to love your sessions and come running back to you for more?

I can help! I’ve helped experts, managers, coaches, trainers, and presenters all over the world transform their abilities to engage, encourage, and empower their audience members.

I’d be delighted to work 1-on-1 with you and be your guide as you learn how to create a dynamic session your attendees will love. Using my 5-step Engaging Talks and Workshops Road Map©, we’ll plan and map out all the details of your workshop, training session, seminar, or presentation. If you need to learn techniques for facilitating those sessions, I can definitely help with that too.

Here are just a few of the topics we can work on together:

  • reviewing your existing workshop plan
  • creating a solid template you can use for all your sessions
  • defining learning outcomes
  • selecting the right strategies for boosting audience engagement
  • facilitating active learning
  • using effective questioning techniques
  • handling difficult situations
  • planning reinforcement activities
  • designing powerful endings for your sessions
  • finding speaking opportunities
  • marketing your sessions
  • designing simple test questions
  • planning post-workshop follow-up
  • using memory techniques to aid learning

Here’s What Others Just Like You Have Said

I was struggling with my presentation for several weeks. Within a few minutes of talking with Ida, I knew my problem would be solved – quickly. Ida was able to give a structure to my presentation as well as specific exercises that I could use to get my audience engaged. I’m proud to say that because of Ida’s suggestions, my presentation was a hit and my customer has asked me to come back next month. Thanks Ida, you are a genius.

Ida, just our one session has already made a huge difference in my workshops. What our conversation brought up for me is that during the whole agenda I had prepared I was focused on trying to “perform” and prove that I am knowledgeable. After your feedback I realized that this would have created a disconnect with the people sitting there because it wouldn’t have been authentic. Once I acknowledged that, I was able to truly lead the workshop from my essence. It was very powerful. I had amazing participation – and feedback at the end. The results: a potential client and 2 potential consulting gigs.
