Rule the Room Public Speaking Experience

Become Confident, Engaging & Impactful

April 3 – 5, 2020 | Sarasota, FL 

What is the Rule the Room Public Speaking Experience?

I have given thousands of presentations and appeared before more than one hundred thousand people. I have also worked with hundreds of private clients, observing them, writing up to five thousand words of notes, and giving them detailed analyses and specific advice. And I have studied the presentations of the world’s best speakers—including politicians, executives, business leaders, and teachers—to see what I could learn from them. The product of all this observation and experience is contained in this Live program.

I have helped thousands of people improve their presentation skills and techniques with great success. This live event is a distillation of what I teach them. I am certain that what worked for them will work for you, too.

Day 1

Content Creation

Morning Sessions

Attract your audience to the presentation with content they won’t be able to resist, and keep them there by subtly revealing to them the underlying emotional reasons they should want it. This section will help you create core content that is exactly what your audience wants to hear, put it into a form that makes it easy for you to deliver, and present it in an attractive PowerPoint show.

Afternoon Sessions

Live Presentation and Storytelling using your actual content with feedback from the entire group.

Day 2

Delivery Skills

Morning Sessions

Creating an immediate and powerful impression on your audience is a matter of standing in the right place and working the room with your body, your words, and your voice. Learn the techniques that will make you project calm and confidence under any circumstances.

Afternoon Sessions

Live Presentation Delivery using your actual content with feedback from the entire group.

Day 3

Audience Management

Morning Sessions

It’s ultimately not about you: it’s about them—the people in your audience. Ruling the room means keeping them engaged and amused—laughing, if possible—and feeling that what you are presenting is specifically for them. It also means showing them you’re an expert presenter in keeping to your timetable, responding well to every question, defusing any distractions, and ending on such a high note that they applaud you.

Afternoon Sessions

What People Are Saying

brad-april-2015“The number of things that you take away from one of Jason’s presentations, there’s just so many things, you can’t count them because it’s going to be different for every person. He might teach something that a few people in the room already know, but for the rest of the room it’s brand new knowledge for them and so the vast breadth of information that he teaches the entire audience is perfect because you know you are always going to come away with a lot of information.”
Brad Grzesiak
Co-Founder and CEO – Bendyworks

“The greatest knowledge that I gained was that I could be a successful public speaker by simply being myself. Jason helped me to identify my innate strengths and develop those so that I could present in a way that was very comfortable and natural for me. My presentation style is now so genuine and effective, and I didn’t have to try to be somebody that I’m not. There are a lot of people and books out there that will tell you that if you want to speak well, you have to do x,y,z and that’s just not true for everybody. Jason’s approach is very dynamic – you don’t have to fit a specific mold to benefit from it.”
Marissa Lapinski
Educator and Trainer

Justin Beck - Homepage“Jason’s techniques break down speaking fundamentals that can make anyone a more powerful and relatable speaker. His tips have revolutionized my presentations at large conferences, and internally to PerBlue employees.”
Justin Beck
CEO – PerBlue

“Your class was one of the most useful that I have taken. Not only did you teach me how to give an outstanding presentation, you also demonstrated how to do so. This has been so useful as a project manager that I will likely take it again in order to refine my skills.”
John Dickens
Project Manager

“The program uncovered several little things in my presentation skills, that once removed, improved my overall presentation effectiveness dramatically. These aren’t necessarily hard things to change once you are aware they are happening, but if no one ever points them out, they are impossible to change. It’s one of those eye-opening courses that focus on basic communicating-with-people-skills that are often pushed aside to make room for content. But without these skills, content is useless, because no one is listening.”
Tosha Kowalski
BlueTree Network

“Your program on presentation skills was transformative for me in many ways: I learned new techniques, you validated and articulated presentation techniques I subconsciously use, making them reproducible, and you reminded me how one can define their own career.”
Frank Torrey
Reporting Coordinator

“The practical advice that was presented and just the whole process to go through was really incredibly beneficial. The key to success is shared here in a way that can be personalized to match your own style…Jason does for public speaking what style guides do for effective writing.”
Peggy Burns
Senior Vice President, Development, Henry Ford Health System

“It’s pretty simple. Jason Teteak walks the talk. In this day and age, finding a true thought leader amongst many is the key to getting to new levels. Listening to Jason, reading his work and benefitting from his teachings will take you to that new level you seek. He is cutting edge, extremely practical and connects in a way that is motivating, informing and memorable. Some of the biggest benefits received from Jason are tactics, ideas and methods that are immediately implementable. Read, listen to, or watch Jason’s programs before your competition does.”
Al Lautenslager
Best Selling Author, Guerrilla Marketing in 30 Days

“Startup entrepreneurs are constantly trying to earn trust — the trust of their users, their investors, their cofounders and employees. Learning how to speak confidently and persuasively will improve you as a teammate and increase the value of any project you put your hand to. Rule The Room gives you concrete practices and guidelines that are successful no matter who you are or what your message is.”
Adam Braus
Full Stack Developer, Entrepreneur, Startup Advisor, Educator

“The class was instrumental in helping me develop stronger audience management skills and question answering techniques. The formulaic approach was easy to learn, use and teach my ACs for greater success when working with customers.”
Katie Furman
Project Manager

“I’ve had amazing teachers throughout my life, but few were as engaging and informative as Jason. I was blown away after seeing just one of his presentations – if you’re lucky enough to have the same opportunity, do not pass it up.”
Will Brooks
Quality Assurance

“I have been to several seminars on public speaking and giving presentations, including Dale Carnegie training. I truly went into this thinking that I couldn’t possibly learn anything new, but I found myself scribbling notes like a mad woman during the presentation. I quickly realized that these were tips and techniques that I had never heard before, and that I could use immediately upon my return to the office.”
Joey Monson-Lillie
Human Resources Manager

“Every piece of advice you give has a very clear, direct follow-up action: if you want to get better at x (and by the way, doing x makes your presentations better), do y. The “y” you specify is never vague but instead very precise and obvious, thereby making your advice practical, unlike most given on the topic.”
Alex Jamar
Project Manager

“Controlling a room is a crucial part of being a project manager. Anyone can yell or implore tactics that draw attention, but few can use verbal and non-verbal skills to tap into the audiences internal desire for knowledge. RTR passes on skills that allow new and seasoned Project Managers to speak more effectively by giving them specific abilities that awaken the audience through intrinsic motivators rather than external forces.”
Correll Lashbrook
Project Manager

“I figured Jason Teteak 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 this marvelous program.”
Philip Deloria
Professor and Associate Dean – University of Michigan

Your program was probably one of the best experiences I’ve had in self-improvement. Some of the techniques are hard to self-enforce (ask a question, then stand still, hands at your side) but ultimately work great. I get 3.5+ scores (out of 4) in all of my classes since taking your program, which has opened up lots of opportunities and increased my overall “value” in my division.
Chris Duffy
Interface Analyst-Technical Project Manager-Integration Engineer

“The presentation skills courses I have taken from Jason have really helped me gain credibility with my customers. That has increased my confidence, and has also fueled me to improve my internal communication skills which I can apply when teaching and presenting to employees (not only customers). I now feel much more interested in increasingly customer-facing roles (such as being an IC) that require lots of presentations and face time with leadership.”
Sarah Bottjen
Epic Project Management/Implementation Director

“Your presentation training helped me immensely understand that people love presentations when they are learning what they want to know. After taking your presentation training into account, I know how to design a course that will empower the end user by teaching them what they want to know – things that will make them happy, successful, or more efficient. The fun part is, while you are teaching them what they want to know, you can sneak the things in that they need to know. There is so much more I can learn from your training as well, and I know this is just the tip of the iceberg.”
James Morris
MCTS–System Engineer
