Are you ready to expand your marketing to include group talks to realtors and home owners but lack the confidence to try it? Dana has done 100s of professional presentations and knows that most people are naturally uncomfortable making presentations.

She also knows that if you are properly trained and have excellent materials to work from, presenting can actually be a lot of fun!

Testimonials from previous students:

Thank You for putting US (your class) ‘on Stage’ yesterday at the Presentations course. It makes me, ever more now, really appreciate the talent of presenters such as yourself. I’ll be taking notes from a different angle to future speaking events I attend. I enjoyed it all…the venue, the class, the course, as well as the healthy dose of great information you shared with us! Thanks again for a very fun and informative ‘presentation’! Irene Huva ~ Interio Deco

What a great course and one that I needed. I really appreciate the forms and the presenter notes that will assist me in preparing to give a successful talk. I can see why the preparation is so important before I do my first talk. With practice I will be ready to get some sales! Cheryl Grattan ~ With Flair

Attending this professional development class was a terrific experience. I actually liked all the role plays and I have to say Dana over delivered this time! I look forward to attending future ones. Joanne MacKay ~ Ocean Breeze Staging

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. If you’ve ever thought you might enjoy this line of work, or even to do it for yourself and friends, get in touch – Let’s chat!
