“Some folks dabble in executive coaching and general ‘communication’ and offer an unfocused menu of options to virtually everyone from 19 to 90. I specialize and offer only one service, and I believe it to be the best in the nation – teaching power presenting skills to business school students. Let’s debunk the myth that these are soft skills. These are not ‘soft skills’ or something that can be ‘picked up’ somewhere along the way.
“There are verities in delivering the especially powerful business presentation that are not ‘matters of opinion,’ and these skills are utterly essential for business success. It’s all about the energy . . . how to harness your energy and propel you to success in an increasingly competitive business world and into the Corporate High Demand Skill Zone.™” — Dr. Ridgley
