Presentation Skills Training & Coaching

In coaching sessions with Patricia Fripp, clients will learn, and be coached on, the three essential aspects of presentations: organization, development of material, and delivery. This coaching will help perfect both small and large group skills. The format of the training will be designed around the specific types of presentations the client delivers or wishes to.


To better serve her clients, before training starts, Patricia requests a pre-session interview to understand the goals, experience and objectives of her clients. The training can be given in San Francisco in her studio via a virtual conference call, at the client’s facility, or at any off-site location of the client’s choice. If there is not a match between what the client’s objectives are and Patricia’s expertise she will not accept the assignment.


The objective of Presentation Skills and Coaching is to increase the comfort, effectiveness, professionalism, clarity, and confidence in every presentation. The training can be delivered to an individual or group with equal comfort.

For professional speakers, the objective may be to evaluate the current material and help develop new programs. Patricia’s innovative techniques make even a novice look like a seasoned professional.


Patricia Fripp will coach in all areas of preparing, presenting, and polishing powerful presentations. As well as Patricia’s stand up presenting, much of the time will be spent reinforcing the learning when the individual (or participants) speaks and Patricia Fripp coaches them.

With many clients, Patricia delivers a customized webinar in advance of in-person coaching sessions. This will have everyone prepared and on their feet much faster.

For team presentations, the result will be that everyone will have the experience of being coached, and each person will learn from the experience of others.

Either way, group or individual training, the learning will be gained in a very practical, easy-to-absorb manner. Although the amount of time spent in this session is flexible, the impact depends on how much time the individual (or participants) spend with Patricia Fripp, and how seriously they practice after her sessions with them. Although one-day sessions are welcomed, three and four day ‘projects’ have more impact. From two days of training, this is what we can guarantee:
