Who is our presentation coach Dr Gary Wohlman?
Dr Gary Wohlman is an innovative, international presentation coach who trains managing directors, CEOs, senior managers and executive committee members of organisations — as well as professional speakers and leaders, entrepreneurs and performers in a wide range of industries. His streamlined approach to facilitating personal and corporate communication breakthroughs combines 45 years of performance-based leadership training, team-building and platform skills.
“In my role as a communication skills specialist and transformational presentation coach, I am dedicated to maximising the impact and effectiveness of developing speakers in deliveri
ng their message with the greatest natural ease, connectedness and full physical presence with varied audiences, on all stages – in and of their lives”.
Through creating alignment between the Verbal words, Vocal expression and Visual Gestures – the 3V’s of communication – my body-centred approach helps developing speakers relax and show what they are telling – with greater authenticity, vitality and compelling engagement as they learn tangible tools to interact with and generate greater rapport relating with their audiences than ever before.
One of my most dynamic tools is the Grid System, a simple interactive visual aid utilising 9 squares in a 3×3 grid that trains speakers to literally “walk their talk”. By placing particular points in specific consistent spots on the stage, this practice not only streamlines the speech preparation process, it also provides a safe container for speakers to create a conscious choreography of communication. Planting their key points in this way, they punctuate their message with remarkable congruency – so the spoken word both matches and is reinforced by the physical delivery. Similar to learning to play a piano piece by heart, this tool also frees the speaker to “think on one’s feet“, improvise and communicate with greater command, influence and persuasion. What’s more, the audience recognises and understands what the speaker is going to say – even before they say it – on many more levels of meaning and comprehension. The key messages conveyed literally “make more sense”, and increase the likelihood that the audience follows through on the speaker’s call to action.
On a deeper level, I am here to assist fellow presenters to ‘take a stand’ and share their gifts of self-expression to make the biggest difference they can, in bringing their voice and message out into the world as they always dreamed possible. On a global level, I am committed to catalysing our collective contribution to create pioneering pathways to transform survival to “thrival” – to maintain, enhance and optimise the quality of our lives – and life itself – on this planet.”
“Without theatrics, you were theatrical. Without drama, you were dramatic. Long after the program, I know the importance of the experience and just wanted to thank you.”
“Just want to let you know that I’m still loving the benefits I received from coming to your Sydney “Speaking from the Heart” workshop. Sooo good to experience a public speaking workshop that addressed my core issues around my speaking fears, identify where those fears originated from and then a safe enough space for me to be seen & transform those fears within the group environment. Very powerful! Love your sensitivity Gary! You’ve gone beyond “technique” to the real juice – thank you so much.”
“Gary is an amazing presentation coach. He helped me take an unstructured sort of rambling presentation to a highly structured and professional presentation.”
“… everyone in class revealed a more relaxed and engaging presence and displayed a more open connection with the audience. As I stood in front of the group ready to speak, I observed my audience’s faces. People were listening to me …”
“… the most powerful session on speaker coaching I have ever experienced. Gary Wohlman’s innovative approach to presentation coaching is transformational.”
