Rourke Training

Performance Coaching
For Presenters & Speakers

Established Speaker or Trainer

We work with trainers and speakers who are great at what they do, want to be great in new ways, and need to be able to adapt as tools and trends change.

Required to Speak Publicly

Most people find public speaking to be daunting. This is because there is not usually an easy and safe place to practice with people who can guide you to get where you want to get. We provide this!

“I spent years teaching beginners how to dance and perform—often for the first time. Those skills I used to help people develop comfort in practice, and to translate that to a stage performance, are the same skills I use in public speaking and coaching.”

What can you expect from us?

Do you want expert guidance in growing or mastering your craft?

Do you want to:
  • comfortably answer any question in a Q&A session–even the ones that come out of left field?
  • easily manage the chat during online presentations or classes?
  • smoothly work without a deck, or at least not be so attached to it?
  • authentically engage and interact with your online audience instead of feeling like a giant talking head to a room of silent little boxes?
  • confidently handle people trying to hijack your session?

We work with trainers and speakers who are great at what they do, want to be great in new ways, and need to be able to adapt as tools and trends change.

Is public speaking a required aspect of your job? Do you dread it?

Do you want to:

  • reduce or remove the fear?
  • present with confidence?
  • deal with the tech that goes with presenting?
  • create engagement?
  • structure content to be smooth, fluid, understandable, and entertaining?

Rourke Training is unique because we have multiple educators and instructional designers on the team, so we know what we’re talking about when it comes to designing and delivering webinars, classes, presentations, etc.

What do people say?

I wanted to elevate my online presentation skills, and I knew that I needed to work with Kirsten because she is always full of amazing advice. I met with Kirsten for one hour, which transformed my online presentation skills. Yesterday I delivered an online workshop, and it went extremely well. I implemented so many of Kirsten's recommendations which made such a huge difference. I felt confident from the start of the workshop. I was able to build rapport with the participants from the minute they joined the call. I personalized the conversation, implemented QR codes, and even provided feedback links. I received feedback that was awesome! Thank you Kirsten for delivering what you promised. 🙂

I had my first conversion event (online masterclass) and worked with Kirsten to prepare. I've never done a masterclass before so was not sure what to do. Kirsten taught me strategies to deliver my presentation with confidence, how to effectively interact with my audience like a pro to keep the presentation and conversation flowing.
She also helped me with preparing my deck; graphics, word count and length. My masterclass went off without a hitch because of Kirsten's coaching. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to nail their speaking engagement. She is someone you'll never forget!

I had the wonderful opportunity to experience Kirsten during an event I attended. Her energy, charisma, and passion for online learning and how to be the best presenter you can be was electrifying. She had the audience mesmerized.
She works with leaders on effectively creating conversations and/or inspiration in online meetings and events. I could see leaders' eyes light up with their awareness "I can DO THIS!"
Hire her to speak at your event, train your leaders, or get coaching from her. She knows her stuff.

Kirsten has exceptional knowledge and skills on numerous Adobe products and eLearning design. I have attended Kirsten's online webinar's for Adobe and worked with her at the Adobe Learning Summit. Kirsten presentations are professional and interesting; she provides a plethora of information without overwhelming the audience. Kirsten provides feedback in a constructive and positive manner that promotes growth and motivation to learn. I recommend Kirsten for coaching, training, or presentations.

I studied under Kirsten as one of the co-trainer in the Adobe Captivate Certification live online course. Kirsten is an accomplished ID specialist and well-versed in the subject matter. What really stood out with Kirsten was the attention she paid to each and every student, ensuring comprehension and left no one behind in every unit. This is a rare gift in trainers. it goes without saying that the curriculum and delivery of her content was top notch. Kirsten is highly reccomended as an ID consultant, trainer, and public speaker.

I have seen Kirsten present and teach several times and I can confirm that she is truly a star! Those of us who have attended her classes and presentations have had nothing but wonderful praise for her. She is smart and personable, and her teaching style reflects the respect she has for her audience. I would attend a class that she's teaching at any time!
