What is this course all about?

Become a Great Presenter and Increase Your Influence is an online, video-based training program that teaches aspiring speakers every step in the process of making great presentations so they can start increasing their influence.

This course will help you become a great presenter, whether you are terrified of speaking in public, are struggling to make presentations that inspire your audience to action, or you want to use public speaking to help you rise to be a leader.

How does this course work?

The Become a Great Presenter and Increase Your Influence course consists of 2-hours of video lessons that will walk you through what you need to know to make your next presentation a great presentation.

We teach in short blocks of content. Each lesson starts with a learning outcome statement and ends with a summary of what you have learned to help you better retain the material. In this course, your knowledge will build progressively, so you must finish each lesson before moving on to the next.

When you sign up for the course, you will receive a presentation preparation cheat sheet that will help you structure your next presentation. You will also receive a quick reference guide to the P.E.S.O. method taught in the course.

When you finish all the modules, you will get access to the Facebook membership group, which will allow you to contact me at any time. I do weekly Q&A Facebook Live sessions and encourage all my students to reach out with any questions. You get lifetime access to all the course materials so you can always go back and review prior lessons. Also, your lifetime membership allows you to have access to any newly added material.

Instructor

Andrew Stotz, Ph.D., CFA

CEO, A. Stotz Investment Research

In 1992 I left a promising management career at Pepsi-Cola in California to teach finance in Thailand, and I have not stopped teaching since. In 1993, I found my life calling as a financial analyst. Over my 20-year career at brokerages and investment banks, my proudest moment was when my clients voted me #1 analyst in Thailand in the Asiamoney Brokers Polls and Institutional Investor magazine.

I now run my own company, A. Stotz Investment Research, where we provide research and research tools for institutions and high-net-worth investors; as well, we have a consulting arm that helps CEOs and management teams make their companies financially world-class.

The ValuationMasterClass.com comes from my near three decades of teaching and working in finance. I am also the host of the My Worst Investment Ever podcast, author of four books, and creator of four online courses.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in finance, an MBA from California State University, and a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Science and Technology of China. I live in Bangkok with my 81-year-old mother, who will attest that I remain an analyst at heart!

Frequently asked questions

Get all your questions answered!

  • What is the refund policy? Can I cancel at any time?

    Some people ask us why we make it so easy for our students to get a refund. The answer is that it motivates us to make our material cutting edge and to make sure that we deliver more than what you expected. We have a 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee. We don’t want your money if you’re not satisfied. Once in the course, you can request your refund at any time within 30 days. I know what you are thinking, “Could I sign up, download all the content, and then ask for a refund?” The answer is, “Yes.” But despite that, we get almost no refund requests because our students feel the value they get (plus, they don’t want to lose access to the Facebook group, where all the magic happens!).

  • Will I earn a certificate of completion?

    You will earn a certificate of completion at the end of the course. You will also get instructions on how you can add a certificate of completion on your LinkedIn page. And if you wish, you can also apply to get a personal recommendation on your LinkedIn directly from your teacher, Dr. Andrew Stotz.

  • Can I email the instructor if I have questions?

    Once you are in the class, you will have direct access to your teacher, Dr. Andrew Stotz and his team.
