“Michael Sheehan is able to quickly assess a speaker’s strengths and weaknesses – and then raise the level of performance within a matter of hours. He not only makes awkward and wooden speakers more comfortable, he is able to help excellent, seasoned speakers become even better. He’s able to meet you where you are, regardless of experience or comfort level.”
R. Jeep Bryant, Executive Vice President of BNY Mellon
Whether you’re speaking before an audience of thousands or just a few associates … in a sales presentation or a shareholders’ meeting … in a boardroom or a convention hall … Sheehan Associates will help you communicate with authority, conviction, style and comfort.
According to Advertising & Marketing News, “The Book of Lists describes fear of public speaking as the number one phobia in the United States. Yet there is probably no business skill more important than the ability to speak to an audience of any size.” Your position can’t speak for itself; you’ve got to speak for it.
First, we analyze your communication skills, identifying your strengths and weaknesses. We teach you communications design – how to prepare yourself for different situations, contexts and forums – so you can always be your best.
Using our exclusive “4×4 metrics” system we’ll guide you step by step through all kinds of public speaking, from extemporaneous to prepared texts. Upon request, there’s specialized training for the use of teleprompters or speaking ‘TED-style’ on an open stage before large audiences.
