In the past, all you needed to do was “get” a job and “show up.” But, times have changed—the global economy is in deep crisis and if your organization intends to win, all members of your team must have the ability to communicate that with excellence!

Come and learn from an internationally recognised master speaker what it means to:

  • Have presence and command credibility rather than just “taking up space and time”
  • Get your point across in a compelling way rather than just “deliver information”
  • Be “fully present” in both your verbal and nonverbal skills
  • Understand the mechanics and psychology of speaking and listening and learn to transport an audience from “good” to “wow”!
  • Use body language, platform psychology, stage presence and verbal skills to command attention without deviating from your core message

This is a lifetime opportunity to hear one of the most dynamic and sought after platform speakers in the world today. As an international class master speaker Kivi Bernhard has been requested to spend time with executive teams of Fortune 500’s including CNN, Home Depot, TBS, Coke and ING. Kivi is a veteran communicator with a compelling personal story and the ability to help each member of your team add to the effectiveness of your company’s message.

Successful Meetings



I had to make this my first email of the day! Unfortunately, I had an early flight and missed your session on “Presentology™: The analysis of presentation and delivery excellence”, the second day of the meeting. All I have heard from ALL of my colleagues is that I missed a once in a lifetime experience for senior executive training. They said you were like nothing they have ever heard or experienced before. I have just purchased Leopardology, I’m very much looking forward to reading it and I am still kicking myself for not being there. It is all people are talking about.
Tammy, District Human Resources Manager – The Home Depot



Hello and it was a pleasure to meet you throughout the day at the CNN training meeting.
Mr.Bernhard – you were exceptional with a wealth of knowledge and professional experience to share. However, it was your warmth and positive energy that was captivating and refreshing to experience. It was indeed a privilege to meet and learn from you. I hope only someday to command a stage with the poise and presence that you do. What a speaker you are!

I write you this quick note to express what an incredible job you did at our executive training meeting in Puerto Rico. You were just outstanding and our entire sales team received very positive comments the whole day. Even though we are now the largest hotel group in the world, you have really brought our executives something unique that will not only affect our business but our lives also. You are also one of a kind speaker. Thank you friend!.

It was a great day yesterday. Your seminar presentation is simply ingenious and you are a very gifted speaker as well. I look forward to getting into your book.
We are heavily seasoned executives and I believe that what you gave us will not only impact our 2010, but in many ways our entire strategic thinking. We were looking for innovative thinking and wow, did you supply it! Thanks again for making our sales training event such a huge success. I would strongly introduce you to other GE divisions.

Please allow me to share with you how excellent your presentation was at the Chicago meeting. To be quite frank with you we have NEVER heard a speaker of your caliber before. The teaching ideas of Leopardology are really just exceptional and have given us real world ideas that we can take away and implement in our business growth. These ideas are so applicable to our world of banking and financial services and you were just right on point! Congratulations on our best presentation ever heard, hands down! I will be reaching out to you very shortly. A side note, I just completed your book and it is excellent.
