Presentation & Media Training
For some executives, speaking to a room full of investors or sitting down with a business reporter can be like stepping into a boxing ring. At Sharon Merrill, we want our clients to be the ones delivering the knockout punch. We place a premium on preparation through techniques such as role playing, vocal training and videotaping and rehearsing Q&A. Whether you are talking to Main Street, Wall Street or the boardroom, we learn about your audiences and work with you to prepare the right answers for every situation.
