I believe that everyone has genius in them to share with the world. Whether it is an idea, your unique experience, or just doing your job and reporting out information, what you have to say matters.
As a recovering Death-by-PowerPointer, I know what it's like to share all your knowledge only for it to be forgotten the moment you stop talking, or worse, to see people dozing off!
I figured out a way to get my message across that engages the audience and made me feel more confident knowing that what I said made an impact. And now, I want to share this with you to level up your presentation skills like a Jedi Master!
I want to help you unleash your genius in a way that is engaging and fun, so your presentation leaves an indelible impression.

After attending Fern's workshop on how to present virtually, I have so much more confidence presenting in Zoom. I cannot wait to purchase her book to upgrade my presentation skills and utilize the information to support training for my staff within my organization.

We had Fern present at our conference and her session was the most engaging one. People in the room were having fun and learning at the same time! She was able to improve everyone's memory at the end, showing how effective her techniques are.
Andrea Huda ● Conference Chair, Continuing Education Association of New York
A great resource for anyone looking to improve their presentation skills. Chan has provided useful gems and tips that are very practical for someone to implement. The power prompts act as both learning points and a great checklist to use when preparing your presentations. Loved the C3PO acronym & reference.
