The Fripp Speech Model

As a professional, you know that when it comes to advancing in your career and boosting your income, good presentation skills can make the difference between stagnation and success.

When your message is memorable, your communication clear, and your presentation powerful, you will position yourself for greater success. You are smart enough to know that being ambitious, intelligent, and well educated is not enough.  To reach your true potential you need to be known as someone who speaks in a clear, concise, and credible way.

Throughout my speech coaching career, my Fripp Speech Model has been well received, often requested, and used by professional speakers, corporate executives, and sales teams who would not consider putting together a presentation without it.
