    What an experience! Intense - literally, the spotlight is on each one of us; what better way to learn? Personal - your individual feedback is immensely valuable. Optimistic - your confidence in me is contagious! I feel confident and clear that I can now translate my vision into a compelling presentation and viable project.

    As an attorney, I do a LOT of public speaking. I gravitated toward Deborah and David, and I was blown away at how their Santa Fe workshop elevated me to the next level!

    I spoke at a local Rotary club recently, and never had a better reception to the presentation, even after doing it for more than 20 audiences!

    What I didn’t expect was the impact it had on me: this was the most fun I have ever had giving the presentation since I start speaking on the topic several years ago! I can’t thank you enough for the “Tune-Up”. I’m looking forward to the next one on Rehearsal Techniques!

    I just wanted to say thank you for including me in the Santa Fe training. The two days we spent were the most valuable use of my time in years. You quickly turned me into the speaker I have always wanted to become.

    I put the simple techniques to use immediately. The people you chose to be a part of this high performing group were truly wonderful individuals who experienced the same results I did. Thanks again for your attention to detail. It makes all the difference.

Communication Immersion Workshops in Santa Fe, NM

Whether you pitch for business, raise money for your favorite non-profit, or want to be seen as a thought leader on the global stage, this Eloqui workshop provides the necessary tools. We limit attendance to 8 for maximized personal attention.

Over two days, this select group of professionals and executives come together to learn new skills and find their authentic voice. Everyone is up on their feet multiple times, with the opportunity to hear from their peers, as well as the trainers, and make adjustments to ensure success. The ROI is quantifiable.

We chose Santa Fe because the location ensures our clients can be “off the grid” and seriously focus on advancing their communication and presentation skills. And when the training is over, attendees can experience one of America’s top vacation destinations, with nationally recognized art galleries, restaurants and outdoor activities. Eloqui conducts the training at the historic La Fonda Hotel. We also negotiate special room rates for our attendees, which can be extended for three days prior and after the training.

The first day is focused on creating a brief, make-or-break presentation, incorporating the critical elements of structure and delivery…

The second day is focused on impression management and how to engineer the perception you want to strengthen your brand. We also cover how to read and respond to any audience, and techniques from the professionals’ playbook to becoming an engaging, memorable speaker.

Your fee includes a specially prepared dinner by local chef Johnny Vee, who creates a delicious experience, whipping up a four-course meal right outside of town. Have a glass of champagne and appetizers, learn about New Mexico cuisine, enjoy specially selected wine, watch a spectacular sunset, and relax.

Stay an extra few days to enjoy Santa Fe and Taos. You can visit the art galleries on Canyon Road, shop the boutique stores, have fun at Meow Wolf, hike trails at Abiquiu where Georgia O' Keefe lived and painted and dine at fantastic local restaurants.

In the winter, ski or snowboard at Santa Fe peak or nearby Taos. There is also the Valles Caldera, Bandelier (ancient cliff dwellings) and Las Conchas Trail near White Rock, NM. Or visit the Native dances at the 8 Northern Pueblos. Plus, over the December holidays, the plaza is lit up with hundreds of lights, and luminarias line every building. There is no shortage of things to do in New Mexico. (Contact Deborah at for the dates of our next immersion workshops.)
