"The Pinnacle Method"

About this Event:


Learn to influence how your audience reacts and encourage them to do what you want, whether in a presentation, team meeting, one-on-one conversation or any other communication, social or professional, using the secret communication techniques performers and leaders have used for centuries. Effective for any level--regardless of role, forum or audience.


Pinnacle Performance provides individuals, from introverts to polished speakers, with the tools and techniques needed to become more influential communicators. By applying this innovative, three-step process, you will learn how focusing on your message's objective and delivery will allow you to achieve specific audience reactions, captivate your audience and communicate like a true leader.


Participants will learn how to:

  • Make a strong first impression.
  • Determine your message's objective and how to deliver it to influence your audience.
  • Align your voice and body language to clearly communicate that message.

Dave Lewis will be available to personally sign your book after the event. Books will be available for sale at the event for $20.00.
