Are you ready to expand your marketing to include group talks to realtors and home owners but lack the confidence to try it? Dana J. Smithers, Canada’s Staging Guru has done 100s of professional presentations and knows that most people are naturally uncomfortable making presentations but, they can be taught!

Mark your calendars! Early Bird Special ends January 31st!

Dana knows that if you are properly trained and have excellent materials to work from, presenting can actually be a lot of fun! Some of the highlights of this course will be her tried-and-true templates and tips on creating lasting connections with your audience. If you are not using the ‘funnel system’ of selling and you are not consciously building your ‘list’ you need to be! Lots of handouts for you to plan and create your own memorable presentations.

Course Outline:
• Steps to Creating your ‘FREE’ Presentation
• Understanding the ‘Funnel System’ and why you need to have one
• The Process — Presenting to small or large groups
• Determining the best ‘hooky’ topic title to attract attention
• Creating your ‘Signature Talk’ a short and long version ready to go
• Fantastic form templates and use of props to demonstrate your skills
• Role Plays that are easy-peasy to follow and help you gain confidence

Read what previous students had to say about this course:

Thank you so much for offering a course on creating presentations. The timing was perfect, as I had just been asked to give a presentation to a group of 25 business people. As I have never spoken publically to a group this large, your course definitely gave me the pertinent information I needed to pull it off with confidence! Aside from providing the class with practical presentation topics, helpful hints, and tips like the “funnel system”, offering your own personal props for me to use for my presentation was above and beyond, and I really appreciate it! ~ Tamara McDonald of Tweak Home Staging

I found all the resource material of huge value. It’s significant because I do not have to spend time having to reinvent the wheel (other than logo and business information amendments). I found nuggets of invaluable information from Dana’s own experiences. For the silent auction coming up (and all realtor presentations) I will make certain the paperwork clearly states “this is for using their existing furnishings and not for any rentals”. That was a gem! ~ Lena Pereira of WestSide Staging Solutions

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging.
