Public Speaking Lessons

Where do I even begin? I'm in Sales and I reached out to Justin because I needed to step up my game after receiving a promotion. I needed to improve my presentation and public speaking skills and my self-confidence to ensure success so that I could hit my $5+ million dollar Sales goal (which I wholeheartedly believed was unattainable prior to meeting Justin I might add). Justin wasted no time in identifying my needs and areas that needed to be improved. He took me under his wing and polished me until I shined! I love Justin's no BS, tough love approach (I should also add that I'm rather stubborn and needed Justin to quite literally push me out of my comfort zone). In my first session with him we wasted no time and started practicing my pitch. Justin really took the time to listen to me, my concerns and areas of focus. He took the time to learn my industry (women's health) to help me refine my skills and achieve my goals. He breaks everything down into baby steps and reassures you every step of the way and makes you feel ridiculous for even doubting yourself to begin with. Justin's approach is very targeted and customized to each of his clients based on their unique needs. He takes extremely thorough notes throughout each session and sends you follow up items for you to read / review prior to your next session. I needed help with networking and he took me to networking events to help me improve my networking skills. I saw immediate results following my first session with Justin. I worked with Justin for several months and saw so much Sales success that I could barely find time to see him for our sessions because I got so busy. My position on our Sales team was junior with quite a bit of potential to succeed. Justin wanted me to succeed just as badly as I did. Through a lot of hard work, I was able to meet and exceed my $5+ million dollar Sales goal and I ended up outselling Directors and VPs. I owe my Sales success to Justin as I would not be where I am and could not have achieved what I've achieved professionally to date without him. He is such an invaluable resource that I purchased another package with him so that I could continue improving. I am so incredibly grateful to have found Justin and for all of his help. I highly recommend Justin. Thank you Justin for all that you've done and continue to do for your clients. You are one in a million!

Justin knows what he's doing. Deep understanding of the mental and physical challenges in public speaking, and clear instruction on how to address them. He's awesome. And a GREAT deal.

Public Speaking Lessons

Justin was a great resource for our team. Justin tailored the session to fit our wants and needs and was able to work with different members of our team who all had different background in public speaking and presenting. We broke up our group of 20 people into two sessions of 10 people each. Each person was able to give a 3 minute presentation that was relevant to the work they have been doing/have done. This was especially helpful as each person in the session was able to get live feedback from members of their own team and from Justin himself. Later in the session, they were able to try a second stab at their presentation and incorporate the feedback that they have received. Everyone who attended the sessions were able to identify their own strengths and weaknesses and came out of the sessions with more confidence and self awareness. We would definitely recommend Justin!
