Public Speaking and The Art of Communicating Effectively

Larry works with non-actors who need to improve their communication skills in public situations and speaking before an audience whether it be giving a speech or presentation.
Larry evaluates your ability to communicate ideas in a public setting: what is being communicated, how it is communicated and how it is received. Larry calls this "The Communication Loop" and he looks for signs where, in that loop, communication breaks down.
The fix is personally designed on you: your personality, the nature and type of your presentation, your goals, what holds you back, etc.
Conversely, he doesn't fix what isn't broken, but seeks to make what's working work even better.

Larry's Goal

is to improve your performance in the public arena so you, too, can receive feedback like this from peers and clients alike:

"Thanks again for speaking at the Leadership Foundations Initiative this morning. You brought great energy to the room and it showed by all the questions that were asked. Your personal anecdotes were a tremendous support for the day’s messaging and the participants appreciated your candor. If you have anything to add, it would be great to hear any tips you might have for those who aren’t managers but may be leading teams/running projects and need to lead and influence without authority. Looking forward to seeing you again next week for round two!"

The most important thing is to bring all of yourself into a moment. If for even one second you’re like, ‘Oh, I have to go do this,’ people are really smart. They can see when someone is there, or just not quite there.
