"After a life-altering career move, I was beyond stressed and unsure which version of me would show up at meetings, video conferences, and even phone calls. I hid it well, but inside I felt lost and scared all the time. Since starting the How To Have Presence course… Wow! I've grown more in two months than in the past ten years! I feel confident again and feel so much more relaxed. I consistently get positive feedback on my business presentations, and I'm excited to put myself in front of the camera to record a video course later this year. Simply put—this changes everything."
"Elissa helped me find my voice - literally and figuratively. Through our work together, my talks and camera appearances are so much more authentic and engaging. As I spend an increasing amount of time teaching online and promoting my new book, I have so much more fun and it’s helped me increase my impact exponentially. This work is a game changer and I cannot recommend it highly enough!"
"How To Have Presence class is hands on—or more so, full body, voice on—skills development. I regularly speak for radio interviews, with media, and in presentations. My learning edge was the weekly warm-up activities to practice so I can be fully present, speaking with full authority in the moment. In particular, I appreciate the practice activities, and greater confidence with video delivery. I feel a deeper calm in my body, informing authenticity that can’t be outsourced. I highly recommend this online class!"
"The course with Elissa took me in to a completely different and wonderful world of communication and speech technique. I learnt a huge amount about presence and voice range, and have been seeing so much more success in my connection with others via video. "
"The tools I learned in How To Have Presence taught me to be there, in that moment where I would have previously felt uncomfortable and awkward, and to instead allow the fear and anxiety to wash away as I settled into the present moment. Today is not the time to be silent, and I credit Elissa with helping me find my voice when I didn't even know I had one."
We'll use the seven pre-recorded modules of the How To Have Presence course as your homework each week. Each module video is short (approximately 10-20 minutes long) and explains a key concept. The topics in order are: HABITS, PRESENCE, NERVES, EMBODIMENT, VOICE, MESSAGE, and MEMORIZATION.
Each module is accompanied by a fun "home-play" assignment and two short exercise videos so you can put everything you're learning into action! We also have an online Community where you can ask questions anytime and get feedback.
Starting Friday April 19th, we'll meet for eight Fridays from 1 PM - 2 PM Eastern Standard Time LIVE on Zoom. During this live aspect of the course we'll go into the concrete elements of how to put yourself on camera so you can create an online course, a youtube channel, a membership community, or whatever video content you dream of! During class and in our Community, you'll receive personalized feedback on your assignments, answers to your questions, and inergration for everything you're learning.
If you're unavailable to join us for the live Zoom classes, you can absolutely still enroll in class and engage by watching the recordings and posting your "home-play" in our Community. Plus you can always email questions in advance if you'd like them answered on the call!
Though it's encouraged to join live as much as possible, if you devote time to the course for eight weeks, you'll see incredible benefit either way. You can expect to spend about an hour per week on class videos, exercises, and assignments and an additional hour each week on the group call.
