Industry Leader Makes Sweeping Breakthrough with Joe Yazbeck’s Leadership Communications Program
February 15, 2015
My biggest barrier in life has been public speaking. I had a hard time getting my viewpoint across to the audience and it took so much effort that my presentation came across nervous and tense. I had so much to say and without much editing and clarification, that I feel I confused the public in my presentations.
For about three years I found my dental practice being suppressed by senseless allegations of Medicaid fraud and our income was frozen with a payment hold. Knowing that we were innocent, we decided to fight back and it automatically increased my urgency to speak out and counter these false allegations. I started going around and meeting legislators in key committees related to health care and I made myself known.
Knowing that I had to improve my public speaking, I came across Joe Yazbeck’s book “No Fear Speaking”. Since reading the book and doing the drills along with being coached my Joe, I have used these principles in my everyday life with dramatic changes. I have learned how to set the subject and introduction, how to use different methods of getting audience’s participation such as the use of rhetorical questioning with myself as the speaker, varying my tone of voice and becoming animated in my presentations.
His book and his coaching without doubt helped me face these false allegations addressing legislators in court with the truth resulting in a big turnaround and thus restoring justice and bringing to those who really violated the public trust to face charges.
Since doing this program, everything I have been involved with has really made a huge difference. Whether it was staff meetings, talking to executives, presenting a seminar, speaking to legislators and to those within my sphere of influence, I have been able to make a bigger impact with less words by having a much better intention behind it to get my point understood by the other parties
I am really happy working with Joe, He has helped me come out of my shell from being able to communicate better by understanding the concepts of public speaking, knowing the purpose behind it, knowing my audience, and knowing what type of product I want to get as the end product.
He has made things so simple and what I really like the most is that his program is not complicated and the data is presented where you can understand it and apply it to your everyday life.
I greatly appreciate Joe’s coaching and training; so many things in my life have turned around in the direction that was intended since we began.
My utmost respect and gratitude to Joe Yazbeck and for his very successful public speaking leadership program.

“As an international public speaker delivering hundreds of presentations I have always felt good about my speaking skills. I came to speaker coach Joe Yazbeck because I heard of his unique methods and needed to increase my closing ratio of my attendees. After only a few sessions with him, Joe’s direct and candid style and approach has proven to be extremely effective. The results I am getting now have been amazing.
My conversion ratio was less than 10% prior to Joe’s work. Now I am achieving 100% requests for post-workshop meetings. What a major turnaround!
I recommend Joe Yazbeck to any speaker regardless of your level of expertise. He will make a significant and measurable difference in your results.”

“Before I started my coaching sessions with Joe, it was a tormenting, overwhelming experience of fear and anxiety to present to an audience. Now I am getting in front of people every chance I get with confidence and feeling comfortable. This is the biggest achievement of my life.
Joe has taught me so many simple and powerful things and where I now appreciate giving to an audience, seeing the results of an extremely rewarding and enriching learning experience. The repetition of doing Joe’s exercises helps you gain momentum and has reinforced me as a forward thinking and accomplished leader. Joe is that someone who really helps and guides you. He is a competent and strong-willed coach that delivers in such a constructive, guiding manner, that you cannot help but win with him.”

“If you laid all my public speaking presentations end-to-end and measured them with a stopwatch, they would last longer than the collective works of Spielberg. And yet, if I had met Joe Yazbeck earlier in my career, each and every presentation would have been demonstrably better.
Joe deconstructs the presentation process. “It’s all about the audience” (although he states it more eloquently) and not my story, which is most important. Moreover, the goal of any presentation is not simply to inform and entertain, but to “impinge” (Joe’s word) listeners into action. Joe taught me to speak entrepreneurially, as well as professionally and objectively.
As a business coach, he has taken a keen interest in the advancement of my start-up company, counseling on a wide range of issues ranging from our mission statement, to web presence and branding. He devoted significant efforts to learning my business model and has provided strategic introductions from his own vast network. One of my partners is currently working with Joe on communications and supervisory skills.
Joe has become a confidential advisor and friend – the type of relationship that all professionals hope to achieve with their own clientele.”
– Michael R. Marget, Founder, 4 L Law Services LLC
“What an eye opener! Through Joe, I have more awareness to new possibilities in my presentation style focusing me on my purpose of speaking and awakening my audience to unlimited potential. Since starting my coaching, I have a fuller understanding of speech structure. I love the process Joe uses. He is not only gentle in his approach but also knows when he can take you beyond what you think you can do. I am happy with what I have gained so far and very excited about the possibilities of where I’m going next.”

When I first met Joe Yazbeck of Prestige Leadership Advisors, my goal was to become more comfortable speaking in front of diverse groups of people. I had owned my own consulting business for many years and wanted to take it to the next level by giving seminars and training. As we worked on my presentation, Joe pushed me to focus on the purpose of my business and in the process I found a brand new business! Within a few months, I set up the business, found partners, hired employees and were off and running!
Joe also introduced me to a network of amazing professionals who helped me discover our “Brand”. We brainstormed and found the name the look and the message that will serve us now and for many years to come. I just have to tell you thanks for referring me to your creative director, Margie. She has been fantastic through this project. She “gets” what we want and produces wonderful work but beyond that, she responds right away to our needs and has gotten all of the pieces finished in record time! And she makes the whole thing fun!”
Before I met Joe, I thought i knew a lot about small business, but whether we work on speaking, writing or organization, every session ends with at least one epiphany on my part. I would recommend Prestige Leadership Advisors to anyone who wants to enrich their life personally or professionally”.
Thank you Joe!

“Prior to just several coaching sessions with Joe, I was shy, timid and lacked confidence as a singer having the attitude I did not deserve to be heard. Now I feel I have accomplished feats that are shaping me not only into an amazing performer but an independent thinker. I am now reaching towards my audiences attracting people like never before. What an amazing feeling! I am now connecting to and leading my audiences. I am excited about where this journey is taking me and enjoying every experience through this transformation process. Joe is the best vocal / life coach EVER! Thank you so much for demanding the excellence you see inside me. It’s really me shining through now”.

Before I came to Joe, speaking to a group was very difficult. I am now able to understand my audience and give them a clear purpose and a message that they can receive and implement. Since working with Joe, I am more confident that I can get my message across and get others to follow me as a leader. This would not have been possible without these confidence-building sessions with Joe.
