​​May I ask you a career-defining question?

​Do you ​want to be ​a top presenter, ​who has ​prospects and customers hanging on every word - and writing checks - ​and who regularly gets funding when you pitch your ideas to investors and executives​?
​Or are you ​happy to be the presenter whose audience is checking their phone or even leaving the meeting early without ​any​ engagement - and who is not achieving ​your goals, not getting the business?

​If you can't make the sale, pitch your new product idea successfully, or get your execs to make the right decision, then your career might be limited.

Executives agree that "persuasion" is one of the top skills all business people need in today's world.

​What would it be worth to know you're always at your best when presenting? To know that your stories ​have emotional resonance, that the audience will be engaged from the moment you start speaking? And that you ​have all the secrets of maximum persuasion?

Business Presentation Mastery:
​How to Influence, Persuade, and Sell Like Top Executives

​What you'll learn

The following are just a few of the tools we'll cover and practice in this course:

  • The 3 Secrets to ​Telling ​​Great ​Stories - I​ find my coaching clients ​often don't​ know the truly excellent stories they already have. In this course I​ share ​the same techniques I use with them to draw out amazing ​stories - the true gold standard for engagement and persuasion -​ and then polish them to a high sheen.
  • Presentation Hygiene 101: How to 10x ​Your ​Business ​Presentation ​In ​One ​Hour (it works ​even if you have no design skills).
  • The 6 ​Key Presentation Tactics​
  • The Value Inequality and how to use it to influence your audience

This course is hands-on and intense. I recommend you use your real-life presentations as your materials during this course - they will end up a lot better!

What it's not

Unlike a lot of other courses on persuasion and influence, I’m not going to talk about “the science of persuasion.” This course is tools and techniques you can start applying today to get more persuasive tomorrow.

And this course is not about how to make a more beautiful PowerPoint or Keynote. Most of us, most of the time, present bullet points on slides. I’​ll help you make those bullet points - and what you talk about - a lot better. But they are still going to be bullet points on slides. Nothing fancy or graphic design-y.


  • You’ll have much higher confidence that your presentations will meet both your goals and will impact and move your audience to take action.
  • Your audience will be engaged from start to finish.
  • You’ll have a much better batting average on getting the decision to go your way.
  • If you’re selling, your win rate will go up significantly (you might make Club this year after all!).
  • You'll have polished at least one personal or customer story, based on the tools I provide in Module 3.

​What’s in the course

​How to Influence, Persuade, and Sell Like Top Executives​ is divided into 5 modules. Each includes ​video lessons, resources, and tool recommendations​.​


Module 1: ​Introduction To Persuasion

​In this module I ​share why persuasion is so important to all business people. I share the Fundamental Rule of Persuasion that ​drives all the other work we do in the course. And I share six key persuasion tips that will stand you in good stead from Day 1.


Module 2: ​"Presentation Hygiene"

​A good place to start with ramping up your persuasion skills is simply to ​remove sloppiness - sloppiness in your presentation's layout, its organization, and in ​your​ ability to share your information coherently. This module covers the basics of "presentation hygiene." It's designed to help you ​​​eliminate the most common problems I see in most presentations in less than an hour - and you don't need any design skills to make your presentations look a lot better!


Module 3: ​Telling Stories - The Fastest Way To Engage Your Audience

​Emotional engagement is a critical component of persuasion, and stories are one of the best ways to engage your audience emotionally. In ​Module 3 I give you a simple, easy-to-understand, easy-to-use method for ​telling stories. And then I add on powerful techniques - still amazingly easy! - to polish and supercharge your stories for maximum effect. At the end of this module you will be able to take ​any​ story and make it better - and you will particularly​​​ understand how to find and use your prospects' and customers' stories. 


Module 4: ​Objection Handling And The Value Inequality

​I know this may shock you, but the people you are presenting are human beings, and they have​ normal human reactions. This means they might not ask a question, even if something in your presentation is bothering them. They simply keep it bottled up, and their subconscious interprets this as them not liking you and your ideas. And they certainly aren't going to buy your product or accept your proposal at that point. 

​In this module I teach you how to overcome those ​subconscious fears - whether or not ​someone asks you a question or raises an objection. The technique of "pre-handling" objections, combined with an understanding of the way people perceive value and risk, will give you great persuasive power.


Module 5: ​​Putting It All Into Practice

​In this module we take all the ideas from the previous modules - the Fundamental Rule of Persuasion, the Six tips, presentation hygiene, storytelling, and the value inequality and perception of risk - and combine them into a powerful system. This module includes many examples, as well as "​recipes" for particular types of presentation ​tasks, such as a sales presentation, a roadmap presentation, an "Oops, the product release is slipping!" presentation, and several more.
