Engineer Your Speaking™

Expand your influence and confidence
with David Otey's proven process.

David P. Otey, MA, MBA

You want your work — and the work of your organization — to get the attention and respect it deserves. That requires more than good technical skills. It requires outstanding communication skills, as well. And nowhere is that more true than when it’s time for a presentation. How do you keep your audience curious, engaged, and wanting to hear more, without “dumbing down” your content or compromising your intellectual integrity?

When you learn to Engineer Your Speaking™, you will…

  • Discover how to put the focus where it belongs: on your audience, not your information.
  • Put your work in context by using scientifically proven storytelling techniques.
  • Gain the confidence that comes from mastering tools used by the very best speakers.
  • Become known as the trusted, go-to expert in your field.

A former engineer himself, David is now a keynote speaker, workshop presenter, and certified speaking coach. Now he works with both individuals and organizations to help other technical experts sharpen their presentation skills so they can build confidence and expand their influence.

"After this presentation for TEDX Billings, it was the most amazing thing, the number of people who came up to me and told me that they felt like they were right in the middle of the story with me - that it impacted them to a different degree because they felt the story and didn't just hear it."
Sherry Winn

"David, I just successfully defended my dissertation and received so many compliments about the style and approach I used for the podium presentation... I was nervous going against the grain for this important presentation, but I'm glad I did and was able to channel many of your effective techniques!"
