"We just used Brent to travel around the firm doing a fabulous public speaking program for our lawyers. He received rave reviews in every office. I highly recommend him."
Sharon Meit Abrahams, Ed.D.
National Director, Professional Development
Foley & Lardner LLP
"The ability to engage an audience and speak effectively are vital professional skills, particularly for young lawyers. Brent Baer's program, "Successful Presentations for Lawyers," was a refreshing and valuable session that raised our young attorneys' level of self-awareness and speaking abilities. Most importantly, Brent provided attendees with helpful takeaways to continue to improve their skills over time.
From an administrative perspective, Brent was thorough, well-prepared, and easy to work with. Brent's commitment to being the best that he can be and opening himself to post-event feedback was great and we look forward to working with him in the future."

"You were a welcome change to our standard ‘Sit and Listen to a Presentation’ style of seminars in the past...You even gave some shy members the courage to volunteer and speak in front of the group. Thank you for your valuable take- aways."

"The courses were superb. While most attorneys consider themselves particularly effective at communicating, whether they are marketing to clients, negotiating with adversaries, litigating before a judge and jury or speaking in public, your course provided concrete steps for immediate improvement with an engaging and witty delivery...I would certainly recommend this course to my colleagues at other firms, whether for their associates, summer associates or partners."

"Finally a CLE course that can be applied to the everyday needs of the professional. Speaking in public, without taking Mr. Baer’s course is like bungee jumping without the cord...dangerous with a dismal outcome."
