Relational Presence is a foundation for powerful authentic communication in contrast to the disconnected experience of talking “at” your listeners. It is the foundation of the Speaking Circles® method of public speaking, and is the heart of numerous other communication trainings offered by our Facilitators.


  • Grow an authentic compelling speaking presence without performance technique
  • Access your natural magnetism to deepen the quality of your business presentations and relationships
  • Invite your listeners into a “field of belonging,” causing them to feel seen and heard
  • Bring out the best in others by seeing the best in them
