Leadership training requires keen insights into relationship building, motivation, decisiveness, interpersonal skills, and effect public speaking. Knowing your message is not the same as showing your message. Your voice, your appearance, and your presence should command the room and persuade at the highest level.
Most presentations are heavy on the content but lack a strong sense of direction. Effective body language and stagecraft, along with mitigating public speaking anxiety, are top presenter’s priorities and top presentation skills

Effective speech writing requires knowing how to leverage human listening behaviors. Messages that truly resonate follow a fairly predictable structure. You have to recognize how we all hear and process in a public speaking setting. The golden words are there, you just have to learn how to discover them.
I’m Paul Geiger, founder of Public Speaking Advantage. I have spent the past decade working with NYC business people on improving their clarity and perfecting their delivery when under pressure. My latest book, “Better Business Speech: Techniques, Tricks, and Shortcuts For Public Speaking at Work” incorporates my unique journey and perspectives as a media consultant, live event host, comedy writer, and executive coach.
Using the science of human listening behaviors, I have consulted with Viacom, Google, Citi, Twitter, Bloomberg, NBC News, and Nasdaq and trained over 3000 executives. These corporations look to me for presentation and public speaking advice, and for effective leadership training.
I have also enjoyed a parallel career as a voice artist and as a performer. My radio and television voiceover clients include Mazda, Capital One and Mercedes Benz. My live and on camera performances have promoted such companies as Oracle, Coldwell Banker and Bacardi International. I am a regular contributor to the website Vocal Articles.
“Better Business Speech will take your speech at work from serviceable to extraordinary. Paul Geiger is one of the few coaches whose knowledge of vocal anatomy is on par with his understanding of office politics. This book covers everything you need to know!”– John Walton West, New York Speech Coaching

“Working in the financial industry, it is essential to be able to communicate in a clear and precise manner in order to grow into senior leadership roles. Paul Geiger helped me make small adjustments necessary for me to improve my communication skills.

I am now more confident and it has had a positive impact with people around me.”

I especially appreciate his guidance around making my gestures resonate and using space in the most useful way. I’m grateful to have Paul and Public Speaking Advantage as a trusted resource!”
“I present in executive and senior management meetings on a weekly basis and I’m often asked to public speak without much notice in various settings. Although I have read many books on public speaking and watched hours of TED videos, I just didn’t feel I was in full control. A month after working with Paul, an executive told me “looks like you are fitting in very nicely here, perhaps we should start inviting you to some of the board meetings”.
