Are you ready for a different way to learn
public speaking & presentation skills?
The Better Presenter Academy can help you share your voice with heroic confidence!
Does this ring any bells?
Limited by Fear
In the past, you’ve struggled with public speaking or even worse… you haven’t tried because you’re held back by fear
You have a message you want to share, but you’re not sure how to craft it in a way that will be compelling
You delivered a presentation, but your audience wasn’t inspired or moved to action the way you had hoped
You’ve seen other people doing fantastic presentations and can see yourself doing the same. If only you could discover their secret…
Good news! It’s not a secret! It really isn’t. There are thousands of books, videos, and courses out there. If only there was one place to go that compiles all the best info!
This is the place!
(But you already guessed that, right?)
We created The Better Presenter to mine the wisdom, tips, and techniques of some of the world’s best speakers and put them into one easy, fun program.
If you have already been looking for presentation or public speaking help, you have probably noticed that there is a remarkable amount of bad advice out there. You will hear gems like “If you’re afraid, just picture the audience naked”. Wow… not only will you still be afraid, but you might have some other *cough* problems.
We’ve heard some heartbreaking stories from nice folks who have purchased online courses that lure you with promises of great wealth and prestige. Three hours later, you’ve finished their entire program and are faced with an upsell to “The Flagship” course that literally costs thousands.
Why is The Better Presenter program “different”?
We’re glad you asked. Here are just a few reasons:
Many books, programs, or videos focus on things like where you should stand, gestures and body language, tone of voice etc. Although those things do matter (and you will learn them too!), but the most important part is the message. Your ideas are the foundation of your presentation… everything else is window dressing
There isn’t ONE way
There isn’t really ONE way to present. There isn’t even only one way to present for you. We will show you a variety of techniques that you can try and adapt to your own style, so you can be your most authentic self. If you don’t know what your own style is, we’ll help you discover it!
“Best” is a four-letter word
We don’t like the word “best”, as in; “We will help you be your best”, because it implies finality. No matter what level you are right now, you can always be Better. There’s a great Japanese word, Kaizen which means “change for better”. It’s associated with the philosophy of continuous improvement. We LOVE this! It’s is the mindset of the Better Presenter; consistent daily growth.

“I had originally secured Chris at The Better Presenter to do a complete redesign of a PowerPoint presentation I had for a charity event. I mentioned in passing that I was to be the Master of Ceremonies for the evening and I was quite nervous. Chris came to my aide! He not only created a stunning presentation, he helped format my speech, worked on a toast, and tightened-up my introductions. It was a winning evening that I’m still getting compliments about”

Who are we?
Here's a little bit about us
The Better Presenter team is made up of public speakers, trainers, facilitators, Toastmasters, writers, and designers all brought together to create an Online Presentation Training Program that is as informative as it is fresh and engaging.
Your host and guide
The Better Presenter site was created by award-winning public speaker, Christopher Vaillancourt. A corporate trainer and facilitator for over 25 years, Chris is constantly seeking out new tips and techniques to improve the quality of the programs he delivers.
“It started when I found a book about presentations in the sale bin at a local bookstore. I stood there leafing through the pages, thinking ‘hey, that’s a good tip… oooh, that one too. And another one’. I think after the fourth or fifth excellent point I spent the 7 bucks and took it home. After that, it snowballed. More books, videos, classes, and a membership in Toastmasters. No matter how much I was learning, there were always more ideas that could make me BETTER. If we stop the learning process, we stop growing and limit our ability to serve. This website has been a massive learning experience for all involved already and we’re excited to share it”
