Public Speaking and Keynotes
Public Speaking Training and Coaching
When you combine 20+ years of public speaking training and evaluation experience with the empathetic understanding of a former counseling psychologist, you get a seasoned public speaking coach. Brent Green can help you identify areas for improvement and then give you a plan to address obstacles between you and pubic speaking acclaim. He has won dozens of speech evaluation awards from Toastmasters International, attesting to his abilities to understand and nurture each person’s strengths as a speaker. Transform your latent talents and allay your biggest fears in as little as a few coaching sessions.
Business Presentation Consulting
Business presentations are ubiquitous; many are fairly boring, conceptually and emotionally. BG&A has developed special talents in transforming the garden-variety PowerPoint presentation into a full multimedia experience; not only are our presentations visually powerful, they’re designed to sell products or shape opinions by reaching deep into buyer motivations. See how we blend music, graphic animations, transitions and video for maximum impact. Then we help you script and stage your presentation for audience engagement, beginning to end. Email us to schedule a no-obligation discussion of your situation. We’ll let you know right up front if we can help and, if so, how.
Media Interview Training
A media challenge doesn’t have to involve harassment charges or contaminated company food. A challenge merely could be an urgent, unexpected, or unwanted demand to communicate with the public through the media. And clients, customers, investors, business writers, and opinion-makers are paying close attention. Are you ready? Do your colleagues know how to manage a media firestorm or will they let the situation control them? Our training team has a rich complement of professional skills and experiences focused on empowering middle and senior executives. With the confidence that comes from our knowledge and insights, next time a reporter calls for an interview, your team can control the interview process successfully.

“As an officer in the American Water Works Association, I’ve taken Brent’s public speaking short course for the last 3 years. I’ve learned something new every time, and thoroughly enjoyed the process. My skills and confidence have markedly improved under Brent’s instruction.
“I taught engineering at the university level for 12 years, and I’m very comfortable with pubic speaking. But in Brent’s class, I learned skills and approaches that really improved my ability to speak extemporaneously and get my point across quickly and effectively. No matter how much public speaking you have done, you’ll learn something in Brent’s courses that will improve your skills.”
— Craig Woolard, Ph.D., President, American Water Works Association 2009/2010
