A better way to rehearse your presentation.


The ‘Rehearsal Mode‘ makes it easy to test and review your talk.

A ‘1-minute rehearsal’ can be more effective than a full rehearsal.


Because it gets you extremely clear on the key points that form the structure of your presentation. This makes it easier to stay on track and remember the details.

Just click the ‘Record’ button – flick through the structure – and talk as though you were speaking to your audience.

The white screens are for details and explanations, while the yellow screens show you the important stages, and the key points within your talk.

The playback feature lets you hear your talk OBJECTIVELY – which is the key to ensuring that it will engage to your audience.

The best way to feel prepared is to get really clear on your key points – within a trusted structure.
