Your Go-To Strategist for Creating & Leading Engaging Profitable Talks & Workshops

Hello, I'm Ida Shessel, M.Ed., and I believe that anyone who stands up to give a talk or workshop can get their message across in a way that engages, encourages, and empowers the people in the room. I have been instrumental in transforming the presenting and teaching skills of thousands of presenters, coaches, and experts – and have taught them how to design and facilitate sessions that enhance engagement, participation, and learning “stickiness” using audience psychology and adult learning principles. 

I can help you too!

I have been a facilitator, speaker, and coach for over 30 years, a professor at Seneca College, and a consultant with an award-winning seminar company. Students in my sessions have come from government agencies, the non-profit sector, Fortune 500 companies, and small businesses. They are speakers, managers, trainers, VPs, CEOS, coaches, and experts -- just like YOU.
