BSR Copenhagen approached Eric to organize a team Impact Presenting workshop .. then Covid-19 hit! Eric demonstrated great flexibility and agility in accommodating for the new situation, re-scoping the workshop to an online course focused on the new reality of 'Zoom' presenting and distanced working. We greatly enjoyed the sessions, learned so much about impactful online facilitation and definitely put these learnings into practice. I definitely can recommend Eric and his team, thanks so much!
Business Social Responsibility
"Forget the „usual“ kind of training courses! This intense one day seminar Eric held in our company totally changed my way of presenting and showed us methods which are far above just putting the right Powerpoint together. I can gladly recommend this training and Eric as trainer."
Lindt and Sprügli
I'm not a big fan of doing presentations but Eric's energetic and hands-on teaching helped me to increase my confidence as well as giving me some nice tips and tricks to rely on. I really liked the approach and focus on practice with immediate feedback during the workshop.
Co-Founder & Chief Technical Officer
As a shy person who always had nervous breakdowns before presentations, I very much enjoyed this training since Eric really makes one feel comfortable and taught us tricks to calm down and present in a way that its a story and not just boring blabla.
The training really gives you a framework how to build your presentations in your own way and work and build up on it over the years to come. Eric gave us the perfect platform to test our own limits and play around with our competences.
I took Eric's one day IMPACT Presenting workshop this month and it was very helpful! He took the time to make it personalized for the people participating and made it very interactive. We weren't there just sitting and listening to him but we were engaged the whole time. His 4-step model and tips and tricks on how to look at and prepare for presenting are nice actionable items you can take with you. I'd recommend his workshop if you'd like to improve your presenting.

Before investing your valuable time and money, see what you will be getting.
To give you an idea what to expect in an Impact Presenting class, here are a couple of video clips filmed in one of our workshops. You can find more videos on our YouTube Channel
Anxiety or anticipation?
Something everyone should keep in mind when feeling "stage fright" before giving a talk. Guess what? Its totally normal. Most people have this feeling and its also invisible to your audience. Hear more about how you choose to experience this fear.
Average vs. Great Presenters
Most people can't even imagine a presentation without PowerPoint. This attitude puts too much emphasis on the slides, and too little on delivering your key message. Hear more about this, and some alternatives to the typical "PPT Slide Show"
Unlike most blogs we are not dribbling out information to "catch your interest". In our blog we talk about our courses so you can get a better idea what you can expect for yourself and your team. Take a moment and explore in more detail, with photos and video, some of our previous seminars. Who was there, the challenges they faced, what we did, the challenges we overcame, and the variety of situations in which we teach.
