What clients say about the Presentation Oxygen Program with Suzanne F. Stevens

  • Suzanne is among of handful of leadership consultants that has made a significant impact on myself and others. I literally have her voice in my head, in the most positive way possible, whenever I’m preparing for an important leadership moment or presentation. While both supporting and challenging participants, she has a unique ability to unlock potential in individuals of all experience sets - CEOs to early leaders. I’ve seen her dramatically improve people’s communication skills - both verbally and non-verbally. Suzanne has my full endorsement.


    Jenn Smyth-Whelly Senior Director, Business Technology at Hootsuite

  • Over my career, I've taken many presentation courses, but none of them really pushed me to the limit as this one did. Suzanne’s approach isn't only about Power Point; it's much more than that! The course makes you face your fears and tackle them head on! It also forces you to think and plan strategically when preparing for a presentation. The individualized skills learned in this program far exceed the cost!


    Moe Renaud Regional Director - Desjardins Financial Security
  • Suzanne is a pro who delivers results. I had a team that needed to improve their sales presentation skills but were cynical when it came to investing money in any learning initiative. They thought most training was a waste of time and that the company’s seasoned sales force wouldn’t value nor invest time in a workshop. Despite this resistance, Suzanne was able to turn their views around and get them excited to participate. They not only went through the first session but signed up for the second part of the program. To this day, employees remember her program and the immense value they received based on Suzanne’s approach and content.


    Lynn Nicolai, ACPC, PCC Human Resources, Desjardins

  • I wanted to drop you a short note to express my appreciation for your one on one 'Presentation Excellence Course' you gave me. The structure, process and delivery skills you taught me were top notch and allowed me to present to our senior V.P. and his team with confidence and professionalism. I personally received many compliments on my content but even more on the delivery and persuasiveness of the 45-minute presentation. In fact I am now looking for opportunities to present!! I have booked a major presentation for January 13th to a group of national V.P.'s from our largest customer and with the knowledge and expertise you provided me I am confident that it will be a great success.


    Allan Taylor, Canadian Regional Manager, Domtar Inc.
  • I wanted to take a moment to thank you for delivering such an excellent program. You not only know your stuff – you put it into practice as a living example. I also appreciated your sophistication and energy. I hope this is the beginning of an ongoing relationship where we continue to work on our presentations/speeches with you. I take a lot of training courses, but this is the first time I really feel like I got real value for my money and that I will use the training every day. You are very good at what you do and I will recommend you strongly to others. Thanks again and best wishes.


    Peter Constantinou, Director, Government Relations Office, Seneca College
  • I am not generally excited after a course – but 100% of this was valid & exciting. I would recommend it to anyone.


    Dayrl Cowie, GE Energy
  • The Persuasive Presentation program conducted by Suzanne Stevens is a must for anyone who is involved in presentations on a regular basis. While I have been presenting software solutions to organizations of all sizes over 10 years, I learned a great deal during the program and was able to incorporate what I learned right away. Suzanne Stevens was not only an engaging and a very knowledgeable program leader, she also practiced what she preached during the entire program, which provided immediate evidence and validation for all the techniques being taught.


    Joel Waldman, Kronos
  • As part of my courses in college, seven years ago, we were given training on presenting, we were asked to present at least once a week to get us more confident in front of an audience, and given several weeks of training on how to put together a presentation with a 20 minute presentation at the your exam.  During my two years in college, I was never once as confident or as comfortable as I am now after only two days of Presentation training with YouMeWe. The lessons they teach you go beyond speaking in front of a large group of people.  They help you gather your thoughts and get to know your audience, even if it’s an audience of one.  They help you appear, sound and feel more confident in yourself and your words.  If we get a second chance to take another course, I would be the first to stand in line.
  • Thank you for giving me great habits and the tools to get it right every time!  Your course and its teaching methods have already proven successful, as I've been able to persuade and move people to action faster with greater retention of information! I will use the skills I've learned in every presentation I do, with the ability improve each and every time!


    Mia Chang, Account Executive, Desjardins Financial Security
  • Suzanne’s preparation, excellent knowledge base, and well-honed communication and presentation skills made the day everything we had hoped for – and more! If you are looking for enlightening, relevant and engaging trainer I would highly recommend Suzanne.


    Victoria Sanjana Director of Finance and Administration, JAZZ.FM91

  • My experience at the training was terrific. Of course Suzanne shook me out of my shell by the participatory approach to the training. It was engaging, interactive, emotive, and very purposeful. I learnt about my personality strengths that are relevant to effective communication.


    George Ogalo Africa International University, Kenya

  • This was a very well structured, dynamic program. I have left feeling more comfortable and confident with my ability to communicate with more senior or experienced clients and colleagues.
