Public Courses

You will find the environment at Interact Studio open, warm and welcoming. We believe that learning is made easier by the comfort of laughter, good food and frequent breaks. We insist that you enjoy yourself during your stay with us.

Here are the open-enrollment learning experiences available at Interact Studio:

Your Authentic Speaking Style™

Your Authentic Speaking Style™ is the acclaimed, on-camera learning experience at Interact Studio that puts people on the path to being the great communicators they were meant to be. Participants give several standing presentations in order to mature their ideas and their stories, and to learn how to make a connection with the hearts and minds of people.

We are after much more than presentation tips and tricks in this course. We want to help you find your voice. You will learn about the level of listening that influences others, the power of storytelling, how to engage and maintain the attention in the room, presence, physical confidence and command, leveraging the adrenaline experience and more.

Details:  Tuition, $995 per person. Your Authentic Speaking Style™ runs over two days: 2:30pm to 5:00pm on Thursday; and 8:30am to 4:30pm on Friday. Interact Studio opens 30 minutes prior to each class start time. Development package includes initial course plus a separately scheduled private session with one of our coaches, $1,500.

Compelling Content

Join us for a communications lab that will change the way you craft your messages. Captivating Content is a one-day program for anyone interested in understanding how to create engagement with a message that holds the attention in the room and lands with impact.

You’ll be introduced to the Interact Content Planner as a guide to identifying key points, story elements, and structure for brevity.

We believe your audience is the hero of your message. We will show you how to prepare content that brings value and serves your hero.

As part of our exploration, you will have the opportunity to apply the learning to an actual presentation of your own and receive feedback from the group and faculty.

**Please note this is not a slide design course. It is for those who do not design their own visual support, but to a degree can streamline and influence what is provided to them.

You gain:

  •  A powerful, strategic approach to content planning
  • The Interact Content Planner to guide you through each step in the process
  • Feedback from classmates and faculty
  • Hands-on application to a presentation of your own
  • Increased confidence around connecting with your listeners
  • A coaching summary from faculty following the course

Your Development Package

Our best advice for learners is to add a private coaching session to your group course experience (you can do this when you register). You’ll review your entire tape from the course. You’ll also have more opportunities to practice on camera and receive focused coaching on your stretch areas.

You might use the session to prepare for your next high-stakes presentation, using your new-found power. We want to free you up to communicate in a way that is not only informative but meaningful and memorable. We can also help you be more concise in making a point, and to show up with more command using technology.
