Syntaxis presentation skills training teaches business professionals to convey their ideas more powerfully in any context, from a meeting with colleagues to a client pitch or boardroom presentation.
Every Syntaxis presentation skills workshop is taught by Brandt Johnson, a former investment banker, speechwriter, and professional basketball player. Brandt has trained executives of major corporations across the United States and around the world. He is the author of the book Practical Presentation Skills: Authenticity, Focus & Strength, which workshop participants are encouraged to read.
Workshop participants learn by doing. They speak repeatedly in front of the group, offer one another constructive criticism, and watch themselves on video. Seeing themselves through the objective lens of the camera helps presentation skills workshop attendees understand how they are seen by others.
Our remote training takes advantage of the latest technology to provide the best possible training experience. Our production studios feature professional audio, video, and lighting.

A gigabit fiber-optic internet connection provides reliable high-speed data transmission.
This is our most popular and intensive presentation skills training offering. In this multi-part program, participants draw on their own workplace environment for in-session practice and between sessions apply what they learn to their own real-life situations. Participants also keep logs of the observations they make of themselves and others during meetings, presentations, and other workplace interactions. This approach helps ensure that participants’ awareness and proficiency continue to develop from session to session.
