Frank brings a calmness, yet control to a room and audience. As I watched Frank operate with his gift of speaking and training, I gathered the overall notion and lessons of being patient with what is being presenting. Allow time for thoughts to grab the audience, yet control tempo, tone, and space with your movements as well as voice adjustments. Finally, I learned the effect of natural comedy that is more of an improvised style to fit the audience and the power thereof.I became a better speaker by watching and learning from a better speaker….Frankly Speaking!
Tim Westley, Senior Pastor
“When I was first starting out my speaking career, I knew I had talent but I also was smart enough to know there was a lot more I needed to know to become a professional at it. Frank worked with me and taught my some killer techniques and strategies to truly engage an audience and keep their attention. I’ve spoken professionally to over 500 schools in 43 states and 4 countries and use the techniques I learned from Frank in EVERY presentation. His “emotional rollar coaster” technique alone is worth your entire investment with him.”
