Giving presentations produces fear and anxiety for many adults, and it can potentially hold you back professionally. There’s no need to give in to presentation paralysis. Engaging audiences during live presentations is a careful combination of art and science and can be easily learned through guidance and practice.
Jillian Douglas, Chief Creative Officer for IdeaLearning Group, is now offering a comprehensive Train the Trainer program that focuses on tried-and-true techniques for turning an inactive audience into a captive one. During this session, you’ll work in small groups and learn how to hook, engage with, surprise, and even mesmerize audiences during presentations. It’s the ideal session for those who have little or no experience giving presentations or who feel anxious when talking in front of a group!
In addition to the dynamic classroom session, Jillian also invites you to submit your own before-and-after filmed presentations. As part of your registration, Jillian will review the videos and meet with you for 30 minutes to provide custom one-on-one feedback.
During our four-hour Train the Trainer session at the IdeaLearning Group office in NW Portland, you’ll learn how to:
- Demystify essential brain functions like attention, memory, vision, and pattern recognition.
- Identify and connect with key audience profiles.
- Discover practical tools to use when you feel stuck in front of an audience.
- Use your voice, body movement, and visual aids to present on any topic.
- Incorporate learning techniques such as chunking and repetition to drive home your messages.
- Create smooth transitions between topics.

Here are some highlights from feedback we’ve received from recent participants:
- “The four hours went by really fast…which is something I never say about meetings!”
- “She was able to answer our specific questions, she was engaging, and she willingly acknowledged every elephant in the room.”
- “Really good—now I realize what I submitted for the sales meeting is not that great. It has really opened my eyes to how to make a presentation stick in somebody’s head and also how not to make the audience fall asleep or lose interest.”
