Let’s Rule the Room
A Few Questions BEFORE You Present:
- Do you know how to guarantee you’re telling your audience exactly what they want to know?
- Have you identified your presentation personality style, and do you know how to use it to entertain your audience by being yourself?
- Have you dialed in your messaging to make sure you’ll deliver a flawless presentation without relying on a script?
- What if your audience isn’t listening? Do you have a plan for engaging and re-engaging your listeners?
- Most importantly…are you absolutely certain your entire audience will take action when you’re done?
“If You Answered ‘No’ To Any of These Questions, Then You Need Presentation Bootcamp”
What Is the Signature Presentation Bootcamp Workshop?
Presentation Bootcamp gives you a proven, step-by-step plan for creating, delivering and managing your presentations and public speaking. It takes you all the way from creating a customized, memorable presentation, to feeling more prepared and confident, to engaging and entertaining even the most challenging audience, and beyond! We didn’t invent the presentation, but we have perfected it. And now, we’re giving it to you…
Imagine moving from “Ok” to ROCK STAR……being the keynote speaker that everybody came to see. Instead of your audience saying, “It wasn’t anything special, was boring, and didn’t have all the answers, they say: “It was awesome, credible, dynamic, exciting, engaging, special, amazing, commanding, professional and polished.” Presentation Bootcamp will give you the exact recipes, techniques and skills to spread your ideas and triple your audience.
Do you know exactly what you should say in your opener or closing? What about your agenda and core content? What about your slideshow? You don’t have to guess. During the Presentation Bootcamp, you’ll present your content and find out if your audience wants to hear what you have to say before you spend a lot of energy preparing or waste a lot of time on content creation. Then, you’ll learn EXACTLY what to say, and how (and why) to say it so can deliver a seamless message that gets action and applause…
Everyone wants to know how to get up in front of an audience and connect with it—right away. Presentation Bootcamp will show you how. Using the Rule the Room principles, you will get an immediate response that will be unlike any you have experienced. The rustling will stop. People will come to attention. Eyes will be fixed on you. That’s because you will be using techniques most presenters have no idea about but that will win over even the toughest audience. You may even be surprised to find you’re enjoying yourself.
Presentations don’t have to be boring. Once you lose your audience, it’s nearly impossible to get them back. But if you touch emotions, get interaction and laughter, and keep them engaged and listening to the point where they want to take action, then you can connect with people in the room, be looked at as a SME, and go for bigger and bigger conferences…
How Does It Work?
Signature Presentation Bootcamp is a 10-week online workshop, that’s divided into three parts…
In part 1, we’ll attract your audience with content they can’t resist, and keep them there by revealing to them the underlying emotional reasons they want it. You’ll 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 slideshow.
In part 2, you will create an immediate and powerful impression on your audience by standing in the right place, working the room with your body and convincing with your words, and your voice. You’ll learn the techniques that will make you project a calm and confidence under any circumstances.
In part 3, you’ll keep them engaged and laughing using your genuine personality style, and feeling that what you’re presenting is specifically for them. You’ll show expertise, keep to your timetable, respond well to every question, defuse any distractions and end on such a high note that they applaud you.
In each of the 10 weeks, you’ll complete a new step in the presentation creation, delivery and management process, and by the time we’re finished, you’ll have all the assets you need to successfully give “The Perfect Presentation”.

Signature Presentation Bootcamp Just. Flat. Works.
Signature Presentation Bootcamp has been tested in over 10,000 presentations with over 10,000 public speakers, in everything from Keynote Speeches to 1-on-1 small talk…
I am what you might call a “challenging student” or what I’ve come to call “Stupid Smart”. I thought I was alone in this for a long time. I had to work 3 times as hard to understand and to learn in school, work and in everyday communications.
I started to discover that if I could understand something—EVERYONE & ANYONE could too. This is how I came to be in charge of teaching 10’s of 1000’s how to use very complex software. I could take notoriously difficult things to learn (filter them through my STUPID/SMART method) to make them easy for you to get.
Then it happened…
…during one of those talks, I had an audience member come up to me afterwards, and said, “Jason, that presentation blew me away. How did you do that? Can you teach it to me?”
A week later, another audience member asked me the same thing…then another…and another…and another. Eventually, I coached over 10,000 speakers 1-on-1 by observing them speak, giving them feedback, and then figuring out how to make them better.
From ALL these observations, coaching and talks, I created a rock-solid formula to spread your ideas and TRIPLE YOUR AUDIENCE. We call it “Ruling the Room”, and here it is…
Your Expertise + Our Rule the Room Method = IMPACT.
Most Importantly, You’ll Know How to Create And Deliver A Presentation That Can Change People’s Behavior! THAT makes you an INFLUENCER…That’s Signature Presentation Bootcamp… Out of my struggle with learning came a great passion for teaching. You will leave Presentation Bootcamp WISER and BETTER. You will be engaged. You will “get it”. You will be able to APPLY it.
Don’t Take My Word For It:
Here’s what some of those 10,000 people have to say about the Rule the Room Signature Presentation Bootcamp Coaching Program:
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.”
Educator and Trainer“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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
Full Stack Developer, Entrepreneur, Startup Advisor, Educator
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
Professor and Associate Dean – University of MichiganYour 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.
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.”
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.”
Welcome To Your New Presentation Reality…
- What if presentations didn’t have to be boring or lose people early on?
- What if you stopped saying, “It wasn’t anything special”, and start saying, “Wow, that was amazing!”
- What if you knew the exact, step by step process to connect with people and touch their emotions?
- And what if you didn’t have to wonder if your presentation was a success?
- What if you had absolute confidence your presentation was a winner before you even stepped foot on the stage?

Rule the Room Public Speaker Certification:
Status as a Certified Rule the Room Public Speaker
How much is YOUR time worth?
I’ve spent 25 years of research and observed, trained and coached over 10,000 speakers (including speakers in the top 100 TED talks of all time). Do you want to do that or do you want to take the shortcut and use the Rule the Room Signature Presentation Bootcamp Method?
Imagine how much time you’re losing right now by NOT having this information. When I spent all that time watching all those presenters, I discovered something really interesting… sometimes even the best of us face six KEY challenges with our presentations. For a number of reasons, some of us:
1.) Freak out BEFORE we go up on stage.
2.) Fall apart WHILE we’re up on stage if something bad happens.
3.) Struggle during WEBINARS to get a message across to those we can’t see.
4.) Have a hard time over the PHONE speaking to people.
5.) Aren’t able to condense this all down to a FIVE minute presentation.
6.) Can’t apply all this stuff to a structured MEETING with team members.
Of course, Signature Presentation Bootcamp covers all of these issues, but I wanted to make it even EASIER on you, so…
I’m going to add six more programs (one for each of the challenges above), where you get to see me MODEL and HANDLE all SIX challenges that could come YOUR way in your next presentation for pretty much ANY situation…
Here are the six additional bonus programs I’m giving you:
Opener: (Value $47):
Blow your audience away with a killer presentation opener. Get a behind the scenes look as “yours truly” prepares to give my very presentation in a room full of entrepreneurs. You’ll learn the simple techniques I uses to calm my nerves, and how I prepare, so I nail my opening statement.
Serenity: (Value $97):
24 hours to peace. How to handle challenging people. Challenging attitudes exist in every audience. Learn to understand what causes these attitudes and find out how to address them so you can maintain control of even the most apathetic, negative and despondent participants so they don’t control you.
Five: (Value $97):
Give an amazing five-minute presentation. Break down barriers, open doors and inspire and motivate more people to fulfill their dreams and goals by taking your five minute presentations to the next level.
Webcast: (Value $97):
How to give an effective webinar. Give a meaningful, seamless webcast that gracefully keeps the right participants engaged, involved & excited about what you have to say.
Eloquence: (Value $97):
Convince with your voice. The secret opportunity to analyze and maximize the tone of your voice and word selection by uncovering how the two inter-play for successful communications when you are not face to face.
Meeting: (Value $147):
Create and facilitate meetings of excellence that meet your goals and help grow resilient teams. Help you and your team get more done in less time so you can expedite decision making, consolidate communication and enjoy being around your coworkers.
Why would we give away something so valuable?
…by giving them to you, we’re both winning.
We win because it helps you, our client, even more …and then you’re more likely to tell your friends about us and continue to do business with Rule the Room.
YOU WIN because you’re getting our Opener, Serenity, Five, Webcast, Eloquence and Meeting programs to use so you can cut down on your learning curve and start giving amazing “Rock Star” presentations quicker… as a GIFT.
So, if you’d like to get these programs (Five, Webcast, Eloquence, Opener, Meeting and Serenity) as my gift and save $582, enroll here:
How Does Certification Work?
Step 1: Take the Signature Workshop
The Signature Presentation Bootcamp Workshop is 16 hours of 68 video lessons plus 284 pages of 3 downloadable workbooks, 48 Hands-On Activities, 16 “Your Turn” Guides and one final exam. (NOTE: A complete course description can be found at the bottom of this page.)
The course level is intermediate/advanced, and is the exact same training new employees at Rule the Room Public Speaking are required to complete prior to obtaining any speaker position in any of our companies.
Step 2: Pass the Signature Exam
At the end of each Signature Workshop module you will be assigned a brief “Your Turn” Guide to ensure that you understand the key concepts and steps Jason covered in that module. Once you have completed each “Your Turn” for each module, you will then be able to take the final exam (which is taken online). When you pass the exam, you will have earned your certification.
You’re going to need to “know your stuff” to pass the exams. As long as you score a 70 or above, you will pass. If you don’t pass, you can retake the test two more times (for a grand total of 3 attempts). If you don’t pass after your third attempt, you will need to take the program again before being able to retake the test again. There’s no time limit to the tests, and with 60 multiple-choice and true/false questions, it should take you around an hour or so to finish. You can either take it all at once, or you can take part of it up front, save your changes, and then come back and finish it later.
Step 3: Post Your Certification
When you successfully complete the Signature workshop and test, you’ll get a personalized Rule the Room certificate and certification badge to post in all the right places to get more speaking gigs.
Our badges leverage Credly’s “Verified and Shared Achievements” so your accomplishments can be displayed in all the places that matter, including your website, your e-mail signature, job placement sites, community portals, your Linkedin profile, Twitter status updates, and WordPress blogs.
Plus, your digital certificate is full color, and printable. So you can frame it if you wish to show off your achievement at your home or office.
Who Should Get Certified?
- Business Owners
- Keynote Speakers
- TED Speakers
- Leaders of organizations and departments
- Students who want to acquire in-demand presentation skills
- …anyone who wants to become a rock star speaker, go big and show you can do it…
Why Should You Get Certified?
This certification will set you apart from the pack.
Unlike everyone else who simply calls themselves a “public speaker” or “presentation expert”, you’ll have the certificate and the badge to prove it, from a source businesses trust.
More importantly, it will make you a better speaker. That’s because you’re getting the same training we spent 25 years to research, observe, train and coach over 10,000 speakers. And we held nothing back.
These are the same content creation, delivery skills and audience management strategies our internal team uses across our own presentations and public speaking platforms to speak with our customers, build our business, give TED talks, keynote speeches, and pretty much any kind of presentation you can think of, taught by our CEO and Founder at Rule the Room Public Speaking, Jason Teteak.
So if you want to:
- Enhance your speaking career (or start a new one)
- Learn the latest and greatest presentation tactics (that actually work)
- Expand your public speaking skill set, distance yourself from the competition, and jump to a higher speaking grade…
…this course and certification is for you.
Enhance Your Team!
Are any of your team members giving boring presentations?
They’ll love the fact that you’re investing in them, and you’ll love the fact that they’re presenting at the highest level possible for your company.
Also, there’s no rule that you have to sit for the test. If the training is more important to you than the certification, then just take the training and look at the test as an optional extra. (But if I were you I’d take it anyway just to make sure you’re fully grasping the concepts).
Either way, if you expect the best for your company, then this course and certification is for you and your team.
Rule the Room Public Speaking is Different
Sure, you can probably find other presentation trainings and certifications that cover similar topics, but a Rule the Room certification is unique because it’s built and taught by real public speakers who actually present their own talks, speeches and talks everywhere they go.
In other words, we aren’t “researchers” sharing “theoretical fluff”. We’re in-the-trenches speakers who despise untested theory and believe that the best way to learn to speak and present is to actually speak and present in front of a real audience. If that sounds like something that fits you, then welcome! You’re in the right place.

Frequently Asked Questions
“How will a Rule the Room certification help me?”
It depends on who you are…
If you’re a keynote speaker or a TED speaker, this certification is a practical way to show that you are a Presentation Mastery Speaker, which could help you attract better, higher-paying speaking gigs. It’s also a way to take your talks to an entirely new level and attract and engage audiences more than ever before.
If you’re a business owner, this certification is a great way to learn presentation content creation, delivery skills and management techniques yourself to promote and speak about your business. It’s also a great way to train and certify members of your own team and get them up to speed on the latest presentation and public speaking trends and best practices.
If you’re a student, this certificate can set you apart from other graduates who may have a “communications degree”, but don’t have the presentation and public speaking “chops” that employers today are desperately seeking.
If you’re an employee or business professional, this certificate can make you more valuable to your company, which can get you that raise or promotion you may deserve (but don’t have a reason to request).
“Is the Rule the Room certification valuable?”
Absolutely. It can set you apart from the competition, not just because you have an emblem or certificate, but because you’ll have the skills you need to take your presentations and public speaking to another level, and YOUR AUDIENCES WILL KNOW IT. You’ll be able to “Rule the Room”!
“Can I retake the test if I fail?”
Sure, you can retest twice (for a total of 3 attempts). If you fail the test three times, you’ll need to retake the class (it’s free to do so) along with all of the core module activities and “your turns” before you take the test again.
“When do I have to finish the class?”
It’s totally up to you. You can go at whatever pace suits you best! You’ve got a lot of other things going on in your life, so just because you enroll in the workshop doesn’t mean you need to complete it right away. In fact, you can start and finish the workshop whenever you want. Either way, we’re going to be there with you every step of the way to ensure you’re successful and can get certified.
“How soon can I finish the workshop and/or get certified?”
This core Signature Presentation Bootcamp Workshop is 16 hours of video training, so if you are dedicating yourself full time to it, you could probably finish in 3 days, but we don’t recommend that. Instead, we recommend you take 7 – 14 days (if you can give your full attention to the material and the “Your Turns”. If you only have a little bit of time each day, then you should dedicated 4 – 6 weeks to finish it up and take the test. Keep in mind that the bonus material includes an additional 12 hours of video training, but that’s exactly that…bonus material. It is not covered on the test. 🙂
“How certain can I be that I will get certified?”
It’s never a guarantee. If it was, then our certification wouldn’t mean anything. Instead, it does mean something, and because of that, you’re going to have to work at this thing to get certified. When you do get certified, you can be certain that it will actually mean something. The workshop and the test are both going to challenge you, but rest assured we make everything simple, easy to understand, and quick to learn. With that said, you will have to earn your certification.
“Can I just sit in on the class to take my speaking to the next level? I.e. Do I have to get certified?”
You don’t have to get certified. You can take the class-only option for just $995 and then if you ever decide to get certified, you can always add that certification exam site fee for an additional $500. If you would like to take both the class and the certification, then you would chose the Workshop + Certification Option for $1,495.
“How hard is the test?”
You can liken our tests to the story of “goldilocks and the three bears” – not too hot and not too cold. In other words, they’re hard enough that you need to study and know your stuff, but we don’t make them intentionally hard just to be difficult. We make them as hard as they need to be to make sure you know how to “Rule the Room”. We believe learning doesn’t happen until a behavior change occurs, so to preserve the integrity of this certification, we have made the test challenging and the questions specific to our proprietary Rule the Room Public Speaking techniques, methodologies and recipes. Don’t expect to pass the test just because you have taken other presentation trainings or public speaking courses in the past. This training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.
“Do you offer grants or financial aid for your programs?”
At this time, no grants or financial aid programs are available. The good news is that we have priced all our workshops and trainings so that they are affordable to everyone, especially compared to similar public speaking and presentation programs and workshops.
