Focus: Presentation Training, Townhalls, High-Profile Communication Strategies

Patricia Kantor

Pat specializes in training people to create persuasive, concise, and dynamic presentations for audiences from a different culture. Throughout her distinguished career, she has developed her own remarkable program to “match the power of communication with the power of ideas.” Specific areas of focus include presentation skills, speechmaking, and media relations. She helps highly technical executives master ways to connect with and engage their audience. She has frequently been called upon to assist top executives in communicating complex technology concepts to non-technologists, to prepare pitches in order to raise capital financing, and to lead “town hall” meetings that mobilize and inspire employees around critical change initiatives. Her customized programs are flexible and unique. Examples of her work include the training of high-profile executives, workshops for sales teams to define and refine the company’s image, and one-on-one coaching to strengthen the individual client’s presentation skills and enhance his or her professional presence. She has recently been selected to provide presentation and communications training on a global platform at the United Nations. Recent clients include Heineken USA and Heineken International BV at Heineken University (Netherlands), UBS, Kraft Foods, Parke Davis Pharmaceuticals, Merck & Co., Morgan Stanley, United Nations-Development Programs, the New York Mets Organization, Institute for International Education, Frenkel & CO, Inc., and the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies.
