Do you know how to keep your audience engaged?
Do you want to inspire and motivate your clients to get the outcomes you know they're capable of?
Do you want learn how to use engaging visual tools that enhance rather than distract listeners from what you are saying?
Are you lacking confidence in your delivery techniques?
Do you want to make sure your clients are interacting with you and your content and taking action thanks to what they've learnt?
If the answer is yes, then let me explain why the
'Delivery Skills' stage of Learning Resources Development is NECESSARY when creating your lessons...
(Otherwise, there's a fair chance you'll end up being that presenter who makes everyone fall asleep, snigger under their breath or walk away warning others not to waste their time with you....)
What specifically is included in this course?
In this course there is an introductory lesson (which is free below, no sign up required!), followed by 3 full lessons complete with tutorials, matching podcasts and worksheets. There is also a bonus guest interview with an expert on enhancing the user experience.

Introduction: recognise the likely (and most definitely undesired) impact on your reputation when your presentations are lacking a motivating structure, demonstrative visual aids and engaging delivery skills (you can access this lesson free, no sign up required, further down the page. If the Introduction doesn't 'grab' you, this course may not be for you!).
Lesson 1: pique your clients interest and hold their attention right to the end of your presentation.
Lesson 2: avoid death by PowerPoint by creating visual aids that enhance your presentations.
Lesson 3: ensure your clients are interacting with you, and asking questions and engaging with the tasks you set.
Lesson 4: enhance user experience through good information and document design.
You're an expert in your field - so do you really need to worry about what kind of presenter you are?
Well, no one wants to be the Dander 500 guy, now do they (watch the video to see what I mean - at least you know you'll get a giggle!)? The presenter who makes everyone fall asleep, snigger under their breath or walk away warning others not to waste their time with you... this short course is going to show you how to avoid being that presenter.

In this short course we're going to discuss how to create and deliver content that engages, inspires and motivates your clients. The introductory module is an overview of why it's not just about having a killer personality when it comes to delivering a presentation that knocks your audience's socks off.
If you're not engaging your audience?
Your content won't be having the impact you know it can have, and there's a fair chance they'll drift off, start creating a mental shopping list, and leave disappointed. Not an ideal way to get raving reviews. Right?

What happens when you can engage your audience?
Just a quick note, prompted by your newsletter, to let you know where the work you did with me has gone… this week your awesome planning tools were used to create a workshop for at-risk youth, helping them understand anxiety and depression so they can be empowered to disrupt the symptoms. Following your framework, Maria, led to 93% of these young people feeling they would handle the symptoms better in the future, and the youth coordinator said she’d never seen a better program. She was over the moon ♥
It was a group project for my tafe program (I’m switching careers, and doing a double-diploma in community services and counselling!) and there were many things that went into the success of the program (like amazing teammates) but Maria, I’m so grateful that I had worked with you and could push to build a workshop that focused on applied experience to cement demonstration and explanation. The effect on the students was massive, better than we could have hoped for. Our lecturer is falling over herself with compliments, and there’s talk of rolling the program out on a wider scale. Astounding!
So thank you. You’re an awesome educator, Maria, and an inspiration. I’m so pleased to know you =D
Maria, thank you! Working with you has been so much fun and so productive!
The way your brain can take complex information (also known as the 20 years of theory and experience in my head!) and turn it into a structure that makes total sense, is phenomenal. That you can then turn this into a visual blows my mind! Oh and you did this in what, three sessions? Amazing!
Through what you’ve taught me, I’ve been able to nail a structure for my coaching practice and the online programs I’m creating. I feel incredibly confident now that I’ll be able to share my knowledge and experience in a way that will truly inspire and help others.
Thank you, with all of my heart! You are brilliant and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to do the 4 PILLARS e-Course and work one-to-one with you.

The beauty of learning online is that you can find the ideal content for what you want to learn. I’ve taken many courses online, some have been great, some have sucked. This is also how I reach my ideal clients. Working with Maria was amazing because she shows you how adults learn, how to set expectations for your learner then lead them through your programs and content.
Maria demonstrates everything she talks about in her 4-PILLARS program. This program gives you a very clear understanding on how to consider your learner’s and client’s needs in the structure and delivery of your content.
I went to Maria because I didn’t want to leave clients with the experiences I was having. Even if the content was great, if the delivery isn’t how I learn or if the content was just thrown out there without consideration for my time as a learner, I let it go and moved on to something else.
I have referred many people to Maria that are delivering any part of their business through online content. The beauty of her program is that it isn’t just suited for online content but for in-person delivery as well. It’s such a shame to see really great content that falls dramatically short in structure and delivery.
If you are serious about your clients, about how they learn, about getting the full experience of what you are delivering, about getting their money’s worth, about engaging in your content instead of it sitting there doing nothing, you must work with Maria. Her expertise is second to none.
If you want to get something done right the first time, you can struggle on your own or you can surround yourself with experts in their fields and get the job done quicker and far better than you could ever have done on your own. Experts have systems, processes, templates and they give you hope by creating beauty from your chaos!
Maria Doyle you rock my world and I am very grateful for your support and helping me bring my ConfidentYou course to life!

Maria has this uncanny knack of helping your brain make sense of a ton of information. The time I spent in her group workshop was just what I needed to re-set my systemisation skills and help me continue to pull together all the stuff inside my head into a usable format. Maria is the person to go to help you get your ducks in a row so that you’re ready to chunk and package your know-how into something that works. Plus, she is great fun to work with and is so generous with her help and support. Thanks Maria.

On this rainy Sydney day I am holed up in a cosy spot working my way through 'The 4 PILLARS E-Course' by Maria Doyle and I have to say - it's BRILLIANT!
I am learning soooooo much that will change the structure and delivery of my Speak to Inspire, Journey Board, Freedom Kit and Wholehearted Sales Success programs that I have in development as well as my events, my Second Act Success Circle, my one-on-one mentoring - basically - EVERYTHING I DO!
If you're in the business of teaching and sharing what you know I think this course is an absolute essential experience for you to make sure you deliver fabulous programs to your audience, programs that are based on structured adult learning principles and will ensure your participants get RESULTS.
Just because I know it, doesn't mean I can effectively teach it - there is a gap I need to close and I am closing it with Maria's help!~ GOLD!
Your Second Act Business Mentor
You should be telling the world about what you do Maria. I held on to my ecourseidea for almost a year.
I'd looked at many options for assistance however nothing seemed right until I discovered your services. I wanted to create a quality learning experience that would really solve the problems my ideal clients were struggling with.
Your many years of course creation really shows. I wanted to create a course that would boost my credibility not hinder it and you're truly passionate about helping me deliver that. Working with you has been a great decision. Get your message out there; so many people could benefit from it.
