DETAILS: An interactive opportunity to enhance the impact and effectiveness of your live presentations, facilitated by Dr Gary Wohlman, Communication Skills & Transformational Presentation Coach
This special event is for both seasoned professionals who wish to refine their skills on stage, and anyone else who has a message to share (a story to tell, a poem to recite, a song to sing, a delicate communication to practice). This is for both beginning speakers, people who wish to feel more confident in communicating clearly with others, as well as developing speakers on any stage of life.
Some of the areas of focus for this event will include Dr Gary's proprietary tools:
1) the 3 V's of communication: How to integrate the Verbal, Vocal & Visual components so your spoken message matches your physical delivery
2) The "Double Extreme" technique for Awakening Authenticity
3) The "Grid System" for walking your talk and creating a conscious choreography of communication
4) The P.E.A formula / Cycle of Communication, providing a structure for you to make your Points with clear Examples & Application to your audience.
5) The "Speech Cycle" template to clarify the content of a presentation, which can be applied to keynote presentations as well as for reaching people more easily with your intended message.
6) Developing Self-Talk to empower Presentations on all stages of your life.
This session is unique in that it will provide many opportunities for you to shift old patterns that have held you back from being in your true power, authenticity and presence when you speak with family, friends, colleagues, clients and professional audiences.
The session will be scenario-based, which means that you will have an opportunity to stage a personal challenge you may be facing in delivering your messages with greater effectiveness. Utilising a combination of the latest findings in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Whole Brain research, and improvisational theatre techniques, you will find that, even in this short session, swift shifts will emerge that you'll find are easy to sustain and grow.
Dr Gary's dramatic flair and playful, engaging manner will also assist you to feel safe to make breakthroughs in your self-expression that you've wanted for years. His expertise and fine-tuned laser-beamed approach to catalysing shifts in your ability to communicate will also include outgrageously fun Monty Python-like moments where you'll be having such a good time, you won't need to look back on the shy, fearful communicator you used to identify with. Be prepared to have the time of your life.
Please arrive 4:30 so we can start on time at 5 pm. We'll go to 8 pm.

When & Where
Dr Gary Wohlman
Dr. Gary Wohlman is an innovative presentation coach who has traveled the world training CEOs, managing directors, senior managers and executive committees of leading organisations, as well as professional speakers and entrepreneurs in a wide range of industries. His streamlined approach to facilitating personal and corporate communication combines over 45 years of performance-based leadership training, team-building and platform skills.
Known for his refreshing, interactive, outrageously playful and sensitive audience-participatory style, Gary has an extraordinary ability in creating a safe and supportive atmosphere through which participants easily awaken their authenticity.
HIS STORY: While living in the United States, Gary graduated with honours from the esteemed Horace Mann private school, receiving the Headmasters award for the top student excelling in both academics and athletics. Graduating with a combined Pre-Med. and Psychology degree from Johns Hopkins University, Gary saw his future as a child psychiatrist and set his sights on medical school, yet felt a greater calling from the burgeoning new field of self development.
He moved to the west coast, where he pursued humanistic studies in the Human Potential movement, taking courses in San Francisco at the Californian School of Professional Psychology, which encouraged all manner of innovation. Here he developed his own system of transformational body therapy that grew over four decades into the presentation coaching that is now the Wohlman method.
In 1990, Gary was invited to visit New Zealand as a keynote conference speaker for health care professionals. As a practitioner who was accustomed to working one-on-one with clients, Gary presented in the way he knew how, by inviting individual audience members onto the stage, one by one, to work with them on the challenges they had in presenting communicating and connecting.
News of Gary’s presentations soon spread. His authentic, real life scenarios were a lively change to stultifying power point keynotes which proliferated the stage, and he was invited back to Australasia for a series of workshops. As Gary’s presentations became more popular the triad of his life – athletics, academia and self development – and his devotion to integrating body, mind and spirit – fell into place. As new frontiers opened up for his pioneering personality, he picked up his sticks and moved down under to Australia in 1997.
To Gary, unlocking the dynamic energy system by the ability to feel centred and in command had a natural synchronicity with his early acclaim as a gymnast, track star, and springboard diving champion. Integrating this physicality into the core of presentation coaching is the foundation of the Wohlman method, which was government accredited in Australia in 2002. During this same period he received a PhD in Transpersonal Psychology and Expressive Arts Therapy.
‘Getting into the zone’ is as much a part of preparing for sports competitions as for any stage presentation. In harnessing the power of the zone as an athlete, it became anchored in Gary’s mind that he needed to create tools and resources to coach individuals to connect inner purpose to outer presentation, and align intention with performance.
For Gary, there is always an overarching sense of achievement working with people to unlock the stored physical, emotional and creative energy – and release the related anxiety, tensions and self-talk holding them back.
Dr Gary’s clients generally come from two paths: firstly performers, leaders or high-profile spokespeople. Their goal is to persuade, entertain, inform or educate and leave an impression. Secondly, those that want to achieve similarly, and may be challenged in expressing themselves, lost for words, floundering for material, simply stuck or nervous.
Companies that have engaged Dr Gary include global corporations, such as Chifley, Capgemini, 3M, Xerox, Geovital, American Express, Air New Zealand, the Intercontinental hotel, Australia Post – as well as a string of not for profits, Make-a-Wish foundation amongst them, and thousands of individuals.
Dr Gary’s quest is to assist his fellow presenters find their authority, authenticity and audience engagement with the simplest, swiftest, most sustainable systems possible. “Here’s to unlocking your true self, speaking from the heart and being heard – with your fullest vitality, physical presence and connectedness – on all stages of your life. It’s an honour for me to assist you in enhancing the impact and effectiveness of your live presentations, and in bringing your voice and message out into the world as you’ve always dreamed possible”.
