When the Spotlight's on ...

We help you shine!

There is no doubt that the ability to communicate effectively is increasingly important. Whether you’re delivering a presentation, or you’re representing your organization during interviews with journalists, it’s critical that you shine when the spotlight’s on.

And that's where our programs can set you and your ideas apart.

For more than 25 years, our presentation skills and media training programs—Present With Ease and At Ease With the Media—have helped thousands of clients from five continents set themselves and their organizations apart.

These programs are constructed on a solid foundation of industry-leading research. They provide the skills and confidence to communicate clearly. They are thought leading, not thought following.

Above all, they are extremely effective.

Presentation Skills Training:
Improve your confidence, your presence
and your ability to communicate effectively

When you choose Present With Ease—as a two-day workshop, a one-day workshop, one-on-one coaching or other format—you won’t learn to make pretty slides.

As Forbes contributor Roger Dooley put it: "Instead of teaching how to make better slides, Bergman focuses on better communication with the audience.”

With this program, you’ll learn to apply state-of-the-art content development tools to save time in developing clear, focused content.

You’ll learn to apply fundamental principles of face-to-face communication. This will enhance your ability to communicate with others, whether one-on-one or to groups.

You’ll answer questions effectively to enhance audience engagement and strengthen understanding. And you’ll ensure that your presentation is comprised of visual aids, not visual crutches.

Media Training:
Build rapport, manage risk & create
strategic outcomes with journalists

At Ease With the Media is a unique media training program that is constructed on a strong foundation of balance and credibility.

When you choose this approach, you’ll learn to manage exchanges with journalists to win-win outcomes.

You’ll gain insight into answering questions in clear, concise terms. This builds rapport with journalists and leads to better relationships. (After all, it is called “media relations.”)

Next, you’ll learn to weave in (not drive home) messages to influence the attitudes, opinions and behaviour of specifically-identifiable audiences important to your organization’s success. This directly supports your business and communication objectives.

Along the way, you’ll gain strategies and insights to help you manage risk at all times. You’ll learn to protect yourself and your organization effectively.

When it comes to using proven techniques to simplify complex messages, Eric’s teaching is unique and second to none.

When I deliver presentations, I often have people come up to me and say that it was the first time they understood what was being said. I didn't overload them with information.

I have come to the conclusion that no one teaches more effective use of visual aids than Eric Bergman. No one teaches better use of notes than Eric Bergman. No one teaches the importance of silence like Eric Bergman.

Eric’s training has provided me with simple truths that I use every day and that help me teach others.
