Welcome

I am so happy that you are here, and I hope with all my heart that in these short programs you will find something useful and practical.

My goal is to support you in radically improving the way you communicate and collaborate remotely, as well as in the hybrid context.

“I believe that it is within our capacity, that by the year 2051, 51% of the human population will be flourishing.”

Martin Seligman (Father of Positive Psychology)

Since 2020, we have all been thrust into an intensive pace of digital interactions in a whirlwind of virtual exchanges of all kinds and formats. Unaware, we are all at risk, in periods, of losing the human touch, the emotional intelligence, the spontaneity and even the humour that emerge naturally when we are interacting face to face.

Why bother to go to all the trouble of adopting new behaviours and reflexes? Because digital interaction and cooperation are here to stay in one form or another, and your impact as a person, as a professional, as a co-worker, as a leader will be drastically different depending on your efforts.

Self-paced Microlearning Programs

Connect- Presentations: Bridging the gap of remoteness while presenting at distance

“…Connect-Presentations took my skills to an entirely new level. The program’s focus on emotional intelligence and adaptability helped me engage my audience like never before!” -Alex, Senior Marketing Strategist

How do I engage and stimulate my audience to think, connect and take action?

For seasoned presenters (Advanced level) who want to feel a sense of connectedness and spontaneity while engaging and interacting with an audience they cannot see.

Method PREPARED ®, enables you to truly connect with your remote/hybrid audience, facilitating engagement and achieving the mastery of conversing/interacting with them with emotional intelligence.

The end goal is for you to learn how to adapt your delivery on the go, being able to present with flexibility, responding to the current needs of your audience, dancing with different degrees of receptivity and with the unexpected.

The complete program takes a time investment of approximately 6-9 hours and is organized in three modules which can be taken independently or successively, according to which specific area(s) you need support with.

(Preparation works best when spread over several weeks, letting your unconscious work in the backstage mode to then give you creative suggestions…)

  • Stronger awareness of what matters to you and what is important for your audience
  • A powerful storyline, (a clear, authentic and consistent thread of messages) & reinforced storytelling ability
  • Greater ease and confidence when presenting and dealing with the unexpected in a virtual/hybrid context
  • Capacity to deliver with interaction and flexibility while upholding your storyline
  • Observation, listening skills and emotional intelligence to respond in the now to the needs of your remote audience
  • Greater engagement, communication impact, true connection and spontaneity
“I did not think it was possible, and yet Connect-presentations helped me build a strong connection with my remote audience, turning ordinary presentations into truly interactive experiences…” -Samantha, Sales Director

Minimize misunderstandings at work:

With the RCM tool, reduce the risks of misinterpretations, confusions, and potential conflicts

“RCM is a game-changer… This tool is indispensable for anyone working remotely.” -Ryan, Marketing Coordinator

How to pick the best digital channel to communicate with impact and minimize the risks of misinterpretations?

For all professionals who want to navigate effectively on the waters of daily remote communications, harnessing winds and currents as best as they can

Select the most effective digital channel for your next communication/interaction with the Remote Communication Matrix (RCM)

With practice, you will be able to balance swiftly between synchronous and asynchronous remote communication with the right timing and wording.

20 minutes of mindful thinking the first time you do it, and 3-5 minutes when it becomes an ingrained reflex

  • Built-in reflex of asking the 6 preliminary questions before any remote communication
  • Enhanced clarity, simplicity minimizing risks of misinterpretation or confusion
  • Greater observation and listening quality
  • Strengthened emotional intelligence and improved sense of timing for digital communications
“…It’s a quick, mindful process that has become second nature, and I know I have avoided waste of time, frustrations and missed information by picking the best communication channels every time!” -Maria, Project Manager
 

Presentation EXPRESS: Giving my audience what they want when they need it

“…Adapting and delivering the right amount of information to each prospect makes the whole difference…” -Jason, Sales Representative

How do I present to senior leaders/other stakeholders with just the right amount of details for maximum impact?

For all presenters (Basic & Advanced) who want to support their audience to take the best decisions.

This program guides you to build a short and clear driving thread of  your recommendation(s) to enable strategic decision making.

Using chosen extracts of Method PREPARED ®, you will learn to Define, Design and Deliver your presentation, so as to remain flexible with the amount of detail that each audience requests from you in the moment.

The program works equally well to prepare presentations that you will deliver in person, virtually or during a hybrid meeting.

The program requires a time investment of 3-5 hours, depending on your pace.

To be more effective, spread your preparation over a week and let your unconscious work in the backstage mode once it has been triggered…

  • Strengthened capacity to create a powerful storyline of messages
  • Increased aptitude to design visuals with clarity and simplicity
  • Ingrained reflex to cure the text-overload syndrome
  • Ability to build and deliver the presentation as a structured conversation with a clear recommendation
  • Reinforced skill to engage each audience (virtually, in person or in the hybrid context)
“…Now, I can tailor my content to the audience’s needs on the go, especially when presenting to the board. ‘Presentation EXPRESS’ is a time-saver and a confidence booster.” -Sarah, Financial Analyst
 

In person Engaging-Presentations (Level 1):

Building the confidence to own the stage and engage my audience.

“This program is a must for anyone who wants to excel in in-person presentations…” -Thomas, Corporate Trainer

How do I strengthen my confidence to speak with impact and engage small and large audiences?

For speakers who want to develop their stage presence and feel at ease when presenting in person, or in a hybrid context.

Using chosen extracts of Method PREPARED ®, you will learn to Define, Design and Deliver your presentation. First you will be stimulated to build an impactful and clear storyline of heartfelt messages to frame your presentation as a driving thread.

Then, you will be guided to create a powerful and well-structured slide-deck (overcoming the text overload syndrome). I have included a fast-track lane session for those who need to whip up an impactful presentation in a few hours.

Finally, you will be supported, step by step, in your rehearsal efforts for delivery and ensuring that you do not fall into the presentation mode trap.

The complete program takes a time investment of approximately 3-5 hours depending on your working pace and the time dedicated to rehearsing.

(Preparation works best when spread over several weeks, letting your unconscious work in the backstage mode to then give you creative suggestions…)

  • Clarity about the desired outcome for the presentation
  • A powerful storyline, (a clear, authentic, and consistent thread of messages) and reinforced storytelling ability
  • Improved ease and confidence when speaking with small and large audiences
  • Greater engagement and communication impact
“…I now feel confident owning the stage and engaging my audience, whether it’s a small team meeting or a large conference. Highly recommended!” -Lisa, Marketing Manager

Last minute presentation:

Whipping up and rehearsing a thoughtful and impactful presentation under pressure.

(For in person or remote delivery)

“…Last minute presentation has been a lifesaver, ensuring I never overlook vital elements and still engage my audience.” – Marco, Operations Manager

How do I ensure that no key aspect is overlooked and have maximum impact?
For speakers who are under time pressure and still want to build a powerful storyline of messages to engage their audience.

Using chosen extracts of Method PREPARED ® with a fast-track approach, you will learn to Define, Design and Deliver your presentation.

First you will be guided to build an impactful heartfelt storyline of messages, translating into a powerful and well-structured slide deck.

Second, you will be supported in your rehearsal process either for in person or for remote delivery.

The complete program takes a time investment of approximately 2-3 hours depending on your working pace and the time dedicated to rehearsing.

(Preparation works best when spread over several weeks, for less urgent presentations, choose one of the other programs which will take you much further in your capacity to present with emotional intelligence, responding to your audience‘s needs on the go.

  • Clarity about the desired outcome for the presentation
  • A powerful storyline, (a clear, authentic, and consistent thread of messages) and reinforced storytelling ability
