Anne Freedman’s Presentation Lab training was exactly what our team needed to develop more meaningful communications strategies. Anne was engaging and her techniques were effective, comfortable and thought provoking. Our team has learned to consider how to best tailor our messaging strategies to our diverse audience with a call to action. I strongly encourage this training for any organization looking to enhance and polish its communications!

Anne held a fantastic 3 hour workshop at Tropical Audubon Society’s Environmental Leadership Workshop. Her hands-on activities gave the entire audience a chance to hone their communication skills. She coached us on leveraging one on one situations to create the opportunity to make our personal pitch. If only I could be as smooth as Anne! Thank you Anne for a great workshop.

Anne recently did a training at our office on networking and effectively developing an opening pitch. She did a fantastic job, was engaging, well-versed on the subject matter, professional and insightful. Our team truly enjoyed the session and left feeling more confident of their ability to position themselves and the company at external engagements. I recommend Anne to any company interested in developing their team skills in any area of public speaking.

Outstanding! Anne B. Freedman’s recent team building workshop for the Board of Directors and other volunteer leaders of Temple Beth Or was a rewarding and fun experience for everyone who participated. She was able to get everyone involved, thinking, laughing and learning. The individual reports on our communication styles and values were especially helpful in understanding some of our group’s special dynamics and what we can do differently going forward. The group wheel showing where everyone’s tendencies fall, the practical role-playing exercises and challenging discussions, all contributed to an exceptionally worthwhile day.

Anne has worked with me on several events with both Florida International and Barry University. Her presentation skills, energy and enthusiasm has made her a sell out each time we have brought her on board to speak. She is able to apply solid information with an amazing disposition and tremendous ability to connect with our attendees. I highly recommend Anne and can be counted as one of her biggest fans.

Anne presented to the Miami GiG of the South Florida ASTD chapter in February 2013. Anne taught us strategies on how to engage audiences when speaking. I found most powerful her techniques in grabbing the audiences’ attention during your opening. She was funny, engaging and full of great ideas. Looking forward to her next presentation!

Anne B. Freedman, president of Speak Out, Inc., has worked with the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce volunteers and staff to help them produce more engaging, productive presentations – and what a difference her coaching has made! She has enabled the Chamber’s leadership to gain confidence in their delivery, and has scripted key messages that are not only customized but “personalized” to fit the speaker and the audience. We’d recommend Anne to any organization or executive seeking to better present their product, service, ideas or mission.

Some years ago my worst fear was public speaking. I took one of Anne Freedman courses of public speaking in Speak Out, Inc., and made a real change in my professional and personal life. Gave me more security, and helped me in my career. In her course I learned skills to prepare persuasive presentations and reach and engage audiences. Her courses are affordable, yet worth many times more than their value. I am looking forward do another of her courses in the future. Anne is now a very good friend and I admire her as business woman.

I had never worked with someone in Anne’s field. I have to admit that, as much public speaking as I have done, I have always fought a huge fear of it. Anne made our entire team look amazingly confident and professional at the biggest presentation of my career, at that time. We won the contract! As a matter-of-fact, our client told us that we blew everyone else “out of the water.”

Anne is very caring and the kind of woman you can be friends for a lifetime. She’s helped me tremendously in my communication style and always makes herself available to find ways to help and support you in anything you need. Thanks to her, she brought me my first public speaking opportunity and in doing so has brought me a ton of business!
