I truly enjoyed your presentation.  I walked away with so many tips on how to present.  For me personally, the 5 Steps to Presenting with Power Point was hugely helpful.  Putting the screen to the side is such a simple thing to do with huge impact on how your audience will remain focused on what you are saying instead of trying to look around you at the screen. Thank you so much I walked away with tips for a lifetime! Catalina Mehler, Time Warner Cable New England Division. Office of the President

Jacki, I just wanted to thank you for your fantastic presentation!  I recently approached my mentor with a goal of being able to be more comfortable and proficient at giving presentations. I truly believe I will benefit from your tips of …..writing down word for word to where to stand during a presentation, and so many more….. I look forward to reading your books and implementing your tips.  
Kate VerSluis Technical Supervisor, Road Runner

I have had the opportunity to attend several seminars and yours has been the first one that I have left from knowing that I can and will put the information received to good use. Watching you up on stage speaking with confidence and such ease showed me that you, ‘Talk the Talk’! Your tips and suggestions to us are actually making me look forward to an upcoming team meeting next week! Using tips such as staying front and center and not shifting weight around, using a pause to get attention, make a point, and replace filler words, I know will make a huge improvement on how I deliver information!  I’m sure that my team will notice the difference and they will surely let me know of it!  Thanks again for a great seminar!  Kim Strauss, Cox New England

I was so excited about the possibility of shooting a three camera video until the reality hit me that I had to get up on a stage and speak. How was I going to do that, what was I going to say? That is where the amazing guidance and professional speaking techniques that Jacki Rose taught me helped me to create a  spectacular speakers reel. Her expertise helped me to construct a powerful presentation and then deliver it flawlessly. There are now words to describe how you feel when you do that. She is still my speaking coach and helps me with on going presentations.

Stepping up when asked to speak and give a presentation is
no longer a terrifying experience for me.  I’m actually looking forward
to having more opportunities to speak and use the public speaking techniques I learned from Jacki Rose!
Linda Abrams, Realtor, ERA Key Realty

I’m a 49 year old small business owner who used to have a fear of public speaking, the term “used to” is significant. Jacki Rose was instrumental in my successfully pulling off the most exciting thing that I’ve ever done, being the officiant at my nieces wedding in front of 164 people. I had offered to be the officiant, knowing full well my issues with public speaking. Those being; sweating profusely, cold clammy hands, and my voice cracking & sounding as if I was crying. But I was determined to conquer this and preside over my nieces wedding.  I knew that I also had an emotional aspect to deal with.

I was fortunate enough after an internet search to find Jacki, and after a couple of private sessions, and lots of practice I did it.  Not only did I conquer the public speaking portion, IE the nerves, I dealt much better with the emotional side.  I can’t tell you how many people came up to me during the reception, people I didn’t even know, and complimented me on the ceremony.  Not only was I elated, but I received a very nice, extremely complimentary, appreciative thank you note from my niece!

I would recommend and refer anyone who needs help public speaking to go see Jacki as you won’t be disappointed!! I know that I never could have done it without the help of Jacki Rose. Thanks Jacki!
