"I figured Jason Teteak's programs might have a few new tricks—but not much that I hadn't heard before. I was wrong. Jason integrates the latest research on presenting, learning, and audience dynamics with a captivating style that plays with the ironic fact that he is doing presentations… about presentation skills. And therein lies the secret to these marvelous programs."
Philip Deloria - Professor and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies University of Michigan
"In the past I have attended several similar presentations and even a multi-day workshop on these skills. However, I never learned as many easy take-aways as I did on Friday. The 'opener', wherein he gathered thoughts on the board was really excellent. I also liked the 90/10 idea and that will really stick with me. I found him to be an engaging speaker and the time went by super fast. I didn't find my mind wandering at all (which isn't always the case for me). Additionally how one squares her shoulders to the audience and how important it is not to either: wander back and forth, clutch the podium like it's life support were good tips. I will try my best 90/10 in our first book group meeting tomorrow. Thanks for arranging this session."
