10 Frequently Asked Questions For Our South Florida Speaking Coaches

Does the Business Speaking Academy present workshops or seminars for corporations?

Yes. Our workshop is called:

Always Own the Room
Speaking and Presentation Skills for Business Professionals

Here are just some of the organizations where Andy Newman has presented workshops, seminars and on-site personal coaching:

  • Fort Lauderdale Association of Realtors (3 Years)
  • Roche Corporation of Canada
  • South Florida Business Journal
  • Building Owners and Managers Association
  • Dunkin Donuts

Who presents the workshop or seminar?

Business Speaking Academy President and owner Andy Newman will personally conduct the workshop. Depending on the number of attendees, hours, and goals, he might be joined by BSA Certified Instructor and experienced trial attorney Ori Silver.

Can the workshop be customized for our corporate, business, or specific needs?

Absolutely. Every business is different and accordingly, we will customize our workshop for your business. For three years in a row Andy conducted his workshop at the Fort Lauderdale Association of Realtors for twenty attendees. The workshop was four hours with a presentation by Andy and attendee participation followed up with constructive advice. Everyone loved it.

Generally, we come to your location to conduct the workshop. Depending on the number of attendees a conference room set-up is appropriate. For a large number a classroom set-up will also work.

How long is the workshop?

Again, that depends on the needs of your business. We can structure our presentation for as many hours as you want it to be. Generally speaking, we have found that a two to four hour workshop is more than enough for busy corporate employees. The hours and structure will vary depending on the number of attendees and what your firm is trying to accomplish.

Why should we hire Andy and the Business Speaking Academy?

Andy brings a very unique skill set that few can match when it comes to teaching communication skills. He has thirty-five years of speaking experience in law, politics, business, finance and real estate. His varied background has enabled him to observe and learn from some of the greatest speakers in these professions. Unique to a trial attorney, Andy also has great small business and sales experience having been in the real estate industry for many years and currently owning a real estate franchise, NextHome Today, based in Boca Raton and serving all of South Florida.

Does it matter what industry we are in?

No. Andy has worked with a variety of businesses and professions as described above. These include pharmaceutical sales, food service, professional sports (Lennox Lewis, 3 time heavyweight champion of the world) real estate and attorneys. Quite simply, great speaking, presentation, and communication skills are important in every industry.

How much does the corporate workshop or seminar cost?

Prices vary depending on many factors such as number of attendees, how many hours, and where the seminar is to be presented. Discuss this directly with Andy and he will give you a fair quote.

Does the workshop focus on substance or style?

Both but the skillset for all dynamic speaking is the same. Once your employees learn the fundamentals of what it takes to be a dynamic speaker or presenter they will be able to use those skills in every situation. That being said there are some very specific tips and advice both for public speaking and giving corporate presentations. Having your employees learn what it takes to be a dynamic, interesting, and educational speaker and presenter will jumpstart their careers and help your business tremendously.

Do you use videotaping for your workshop?

Yes but it depends on how many attendees there are. When it is a workshop with four to eight attendees for example, it is easy to use video as a learning tool. Obviously, if we are working with a very large group that might not be possible.

How quickly can I expect our employees to improve?

Immediately. I have seen significant improvement after just a few hours. The reason is that speaking and presentation skills are generally a learned skillset and not something that one is born with. A few hours learning from a great coach can make all the difference in the world.
