YOUR “PERSONAL TRAINER” FOR PUBLIC SPEAKING
What if? What if your next presentation closed that big deal or if it secured agency funding? What if the next personal story you told inspired your organization to new heights? What if your key message engaged conference audiences? And so forth? What difference could that “right [blank]” mean to you?
My name is Ira Koretsky. I have been public speaking since the age of 15, when I was a high school debate state champion. Some 35 years later, I have trained and coached thousands of professionals around the world (success stories, testimonials, bio) in a variety of communication areas.
Over the years, I have worked with large and small organizations such as Department of Energy, IBM, Lockheed Martin, and Warner Bros. Audience sizes range from intimate groups of 10 to keynotes above 1,200 attendees (customers).
Currently, I also teach public speaking, storytelling, and communication at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. The student final is a five-minute TED Talk.
