How To Become a Presentation Skills Master…
Create and deliver a presentation that can persuade, motivate, teach, and inspire any audience.
Attention: Public Speakers
Finally, You’ll Have a Proven, Step-By-Step Hands-On Plan To…
…TRIPLE Your Audience
10,000 speakers around the globe use this rock-solid formula to spread their ideas and triple their audience.
Ordinary presenters just don’t get it….
Recently I attended a presentation and watched two audience members walk out…
“It wasn’t anything special…lost me early on,” said the 1st.
The 2nd said: “It was boring…didn’t have all the answers.”
Once you lose your audience, it’s nearly impossible to get them back.
None of us can stand boring presentations with little excitement…
… or presenters that talk too fast, are monotone and use lots of ums and filler words.
We hate bad subject material that’s too easy and presenters that talk down to us.
We all want to connect to the people in the room…
…To touch audiences more emotionally and give them good advice.
But, if you’re boring and give boring presentations, then they don’t care about what you’re presenting.
You’re not looked at as a SME (subject matter expert).
It’s not uncommon to look out and 5 or 10 minutes in, see folks starting to drift away and to watch their attention spans wither.
Even though you know getting them involved and captivated is absolutely going to help you, it may be hit or miss for you right now.
You may have a fear of screwing up…
…with bigger audiences, smaller audiences or even 1-on-1 conversations.
You may have complicated content or you don’t know where to start….
…many of the best speakers often have to re-engineer their presentations because the content they have to deliver changes fast…
…it can be challenging when contemplating writing (or re-writing) your script, and handling a presentation with 50 slides when it could have been 3.
You may get nervous beforehand…
…even if it’s nothing seeded that keeps you up at night, you still get nervous before a lot of presentations.
Even if you’re not nervous inside, you may worry about SHOWING nervousness…
You may just want to be more comfortable at public speaking.
That’s because PRESENTATION COUNTS…
Thought leaders not only know their stuff, but can REALLY PRESENT it well…
… just watch a cooking show…some say it even makes the food taste better.
When you can make a good impression quickly and CONTINUE to come across well to your audience.
You can do something special…
…you can touch emotions and go BIG.
FACT: Businesses Need Presenters
(…Who Actually Know What They’re Doing)
I’m not going to sell you on the importance of presentations.
If you’re here, you already know what presentations can do for your business:
- Triple your employee and customer engagement…
- Gain credibility, connect to people in the room…
- Touch emotions, spread ideas and make the content exciting…
So that’s why businesses need great presenters.
There’s just one problem: Most so called “presenters” don’t know what they’re doing.
That’s where you come in.
As a Certified Presentation Skills Specialist, you are uniquely qualified to help businesses convert presentations into engagement, learning and a change in behavior.
More specifically, in this master class, you’ll learn:
- How to create content that makes your audience crave everything you say…(Do this right and you’ll see them motivated to take action!)
- Stay calm and in control in front of every audience and overcome nervousness and anxiety when presenting…
- Coordinate what you say and what your audience sees for a flawless delivery…
- Entertain and amuse your audience in a style that’s true to you…
- Make the audience feel safe, make them feel good and make them laugh…
- Master your body language by taking a strong stance in the sweet spot, master eye contact and keep your body still when needed…
- Identify the pain points and pleasure points of your audience and how your takeaways relieve the pain points and enhance pleasure points…
- Organize your material to make it easy for you to deliver and for your audience to follow…
- Read your audience for maximum impact so you can make all listeners feel your message is meant just for them…
- Develop your core content by defining your tasks, solving the mysteries and keeping things simple…
- Manage your pace and deliver a presentation that ends on time, every time…
- Create and use visuals and pictures that make complex ideas clearer and more memorable by adding impact to your presentation…
- Integrate your words, blueprint, handout and visuals to make a compelling final presentation product…
- Elicit questions and provide answers even when you have none, and still making people feel safe to ask a questions…
- Captivate your audience within the first 5 minutes by getting them to trust, believe and listen to you…
- How to create a title for your presentation that motivates your audience to attend your presentation in the first place…
- Persuade your audience with the words you choose by minimizing fillers, eliminating deceptive words and finding alternatives to negative or controlling words…
- How to identify exactly what your audience wants to know (and why they want to know it)…(HINT: this lets you present the “how” you’re going to give it to them.)
- Find your optimal pace, volume and tone of voice and master your inflections to create dynamic effects…
- Create opening slides that assure your audience they are in the right place and reminds them what they are going to hear…
- Speak with confidence and credibility and show audience members they can trust what you say…
- Easily engage your audience and stay on topic so their minds never wander with recall questions, leading questions, relevance questions and expertise questions….
- Use the “agree and see if you’re right” technique to address every learning style…
- Remain in charge no matter what’s happening by rewarding only positive behaviors…
- The exact steps to make your takeaways specific and actionable in seven words or less…
- Show your presentation was worthwhile and move your audience to respond with enthusiasm…
- …and much, MUCH more!
Are You A “Doer”…or Just a “Talker?”
(or…Why You Might Want To Get Certified)
Let’s face it: Presentation Experts are a dime a dozen.
So how do you separate those who “walk the talk” from the ones who merely…
And at Rule the Room, it was our problem, too. You see, we don’t just teach presentation best practices, we actually DO PRESENTATIONS for businesses that we ACTUALLY OWN, CONSULT, or WORK FOR.
Sure, over the last 10 years, we’ve observed and analyzed over 10,000 speakers (including the top 100 TED talks of all time).
But, we’ve also personally given over 10,000 talks of our own to over 1,000,000 people.
We aren’t researchers. We aren’t journalists.
We’re business owners training employees (and training influencers to train employees) to achieve their full potential at work, convert belief into practice, and make retaining our employees a priority.
In other words: WE ACTUALLY DO THIS STUFF…
…so we know how hard it is to find truly skilled presenters who know what they’re talking about.
We call it “Ruling the Room”, and here it is…
Your Expertise + Our Rule the Room Method = IMPACT.
THAT makes you an INFLUENCER…
And that’s why we created the “Presentation Skills Mastery” course and certification.
We built this certification to train our own presenters, but in the spirit of “open sourcing” our business (which is what Rule the Room is all about) we’re now making this certification and training available to the world.
In short, we’re making it available to YOU…
Don't Take Our Word For It
Here’s what 10 others have to say about the Rule the Room Signature Presentation Bootcamp Coaching Program:
Joey Monson-Lillie - Human Resources Manager
“I have been to several seminars on public speaking and giving presentations, including Dale Carnegie training. I truly went into this thinking that I couldn’t possibly learn anything new, but I found myself scribbling notes like a mad woman during the presentation. I quickly realized that these were tips and techniques that I had never heard before, and that I could use immediately upon my return to the office.”
Brad Grzesiak - Co-Founder and CEO – Bendyworks
“The number of things that you take away from one of Jason’s presentations, there’s just so many things, you can’t count them because it’s going to be different for every person. He might teach something that a few people in the room already know, but for the rest of the room it’s brand new knowledge for them and so the vast breadth of information that he teaches the entire audience is perfect because you know you are always going to come away with a lot of information.”
Justin BeckCEO - PerBlue
“Jason’s techniques break down speaking fundamentals that can make anyone a more powerful and relatable speaker. His tips have revolutionized my presentations at large conferences, and internally to PerBlue employees.”
Alex Jamar - Project Manager
"Every piece of advice you give has a very clear, direct follow-up action: if you want to get better at x (and by the way, doing x makes your presentations better), do y. The "y" you specify is never vague but instead very precise and obvious, thereby making your advice practical, unlike most given on the topic."
John Dickens - Project Manager
“Your class was one of the most useful that I have taken. Not only did you teach me how to give an outstanding presentation, you also demonstrated how to do so. This has been so useful as a project manager that I will likely take it again in order to refine my skills.”
Rachel Goldsmith - Implementation Services
"Honestly, this was one of the most helpful classes in my career and I think your presentation skills training was at the core of what made the class so effective. You model the skills that we want to obtain, and I think that helps a lot of different learning styles. I liked this class so much I tell my team members and ACs to attend this class anyways.”
Will Brooks - Quality Assurance
"I’ve had amazing teachers throughout my life, but few were as engaging and informative as Jason. I was blown away after seeing just one of his presentations – if you’re lucky enough to have the same opportunity, do not pass it up.”
Philip Deloria - Professor and Associate Dean - University of Michigan
“I figured Jason Teteak might have a few new tricks—but not much that I hadn’t heard before. I was wrong. Jason integrates the latest research on presenting, learning, and audience dynamics with a captivating style that plays with the ironic fact that he is doing presentations… about presentation skills. And therein lies the secret to this marvelous program."
Tucker Morris - MCTS–System Engineer
“Your presentation training helped me immensely understand that people love presentations when they are learning what they want to know. After taking your presentation training into account, I know how to design a course that will empower the end user by teaching them what they want to know – things that will make them happy, successful, or more efficient. The fun part is, while you are teaching them what they want to know, you can sneak the things in that they need to know. There is so much more I can learn from your training as well, and I know this is just the tip of the iceberg.”
Al Lautenslager - Best Selling Author, Guerrilla Marketing in 30 Days
“It’s pretty simple. Jason Teteak walks the talk. In this day and age, finding a true thought leader amongst many is the key to getting to new levels. Listening to Jason, reading his work and benefitting from his teachings will take you to that new level you seek. He is cutting edge, extremely practical and connects in a way that is motivating, informing and memorable. Some of the biggest benefits received from Jason are tactics, ideas and methods that are immediately implementable. Read, listen to, or watch Jason’s programs before your competition does.”

About Your Instructor
Jason Teteak is the Founder and CEO of Rule the Room Train the Trainer. Jason first made a reputation in the medical training industry, where he was known as “the Epic trainer of trainers.” In response to many requests, he began to offer personalized services and quickly developed a following as a private training coach and training consultant whose clientele includes elite institutions, universities, and top corporations.
In 20 years of working as a trainer and a trainer coach, he has helped more than 15,000 training professionals to “Rule the Room” and has appeared before more than 200,000 people. He’s won praise and a wide following for his original methods, his engaging style, and his knack for transferring training skills via practical, simple, universal and immediately actionable techniques. Or as he puts it “No theoretical fluff”.
He founded Rule the Room Train the Trainer with a mission to DOUBLE the impact of 10,000 training professionals in the next 5 years. The Rule the Room Train the Trainer team, under Jason’s management, has flipped the model and changed the approach to great training and instruction for even the most seasoned veterans.
Rule the Room Train the Trainer is Different
Sure, you can probably find other “train-the-trainer” trainings and certifications that cover similar topics, but a Rule the Room certification is unique because it’s built and taught by real trainers who actually write and train their own classes and observe, coach and train thousands of trainers to mastery.
In other words, we aren’t “researchers” sharing “theoretical fluff”. We’re in-the-trenches trainers who despise untested theory and believe that the best way to learn training techniques is to actually get up and teach in front of a real classroom. If that sounds like something that fits you, then welcome! You’re in the right place.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: “How will this Rule the Room certification help me?”
A: It depends on who you are…..
If you’re a business owner, this certification is a great way to learn presentation skills yourself. It’s also a great way to train and certify members of your own team and get them up to speed in half the time on the latest classroom training trends and best practices.
If you’re a consultant, this certification is a practical way to show that you are a Presentation Skills Specialist, which could help you attract better, higher-paying clients, boost their ROI and efficiency, and lower turnover, safety and security concerns.
If you’re a student, this certificate can set you apart from other graduates who may have a business or education degree, but don’t have the specialized skills that employers today are looking for.
If you’re an employee or training professional, this certificate can make you more valuable to your company, which can get you that raise or promotion you may deserve (but don’t have a reason to request).
Q: “How valuable is this Rule the Room certification?”
A: The certification itself is highly valuable if your goal is to set yourself apart from the competition. What’s even MORE valuable than any certification is the knowledge and understanding you’re going to gain when you take this class and pass all the tests. You will know classroom training.
Q: “Can I retake the test if I fail?”
A: Sure, you can retest twice (for a total of 3 attempts). If you fail the test three times, you’ll need to retake the class (it’s free to do so) along with all of the core module quizzes before you take the test again.
Q: “When do I have to finish the class?”
A: You can go at whatever pace suits you best! You’ve got a lot of other things going on in your life, so just because you enroll in the workshop doesn’t mean you need to complete it right away. In fact, you can start and finish the workshop whenever you want. Either way, we’re going to be there with you every step of the way to ensure you’re successful and can get certified.
Q: “How soon can I finish the class and/or get certified?”
A: The Presentation Skills Mastery class is 16 hours of video training, so if you are dedicating yourself full time to it, you could probably finish in 3 days, but we don’t recommend that. Instead, we recommend you take 7 – 14 days (if you can give your full attention to the material. If you only have a little bit of time each day, then you should dedicated 4 – 6 weeks to finish it up and take the test.
Q: “How certain can I be that I will be certified?”
A: It’s never a guarantee. If it was, then our certification wouldn’t mean anything. Instead, it does mean something, and because of that, you’re going to have to work at this thing to get certified. When you do get certified, you can be certain that it will actually mean something. The class and the test are both going to challenge you, but rest assured we make everything simple, easy to understand, and quick to learn. With that said, you will have to earn your certification.
Q: “Can I just sit in on the class to take my classroom training to another level? I.e. Do I have to get certified?”
A: Right now the cost for the class is $297. Ordinarily the site fee for the certification exam is $497, but currently we have waived that fee and are allowing students to take the exam up to 3 times for free. This will change in the future, at which time we may allow non-certification candidates to audit our classes at a discounted rate, but the price will never be lower than $297.
Q: How hard is the test?
A: You can liken our tests to the story of “goldilocks and the three bears” – not too hot and not too cold. In other words, they’re hard enough that you need to study and know your stuff, but we don’t make them intentionally hard just to be difficult. We make them as hard as they need to be to make sure you know how to “Rule the Room”. We believe learning doesn’t happen until a behavior change occurs, so to preserve the integrity of this certification, we have made the test challenging and the questions specific to our proprietary Rule the Room Train the Trainer techniques, methodologies and recipes. Don’t expect to pass the test just because you have taken other trainings or certification courses in the past. This training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.
Q: Do you offer grants or financial aid for your programs?
A: At this time, no grants or financial aid programs are available. The good news is that we have priced all our workshops and trainings so that they are affordable to everyone, especially compared to similar train-the-trainer programs and workshops.
