There are 350 PowerPoint presentations given every second around the world, but none quite like this.
Speechless shows off San Diego’s silly side by letting presenters live out their worst nightmare: giving a presentation with absolutely no preparation.
A virtual wheel determines at random what kind of talk they have to give — it can be a TED Talk, a new app being launched, a quarterly report, even a wedding toast — and then our presenters do the best job they can to try to get through the show while attempting to leave the audience Speechless.

Speechless plays every other month at Finest City Improv and is available as a corporate training and event package.
Speechless puts entertainers, entrepreneurs, and audience members on the spot with nothing more than a stage, a microphone and a PowerPoint deck full of images that they’ve never seen.

We view every person we work with as a performer, no matter his or her job title. Every time you give a presentation, you’re taking the stage on behalf of yourself, your team, and your company. And every time you give a presentation, you have an incredible opportunity to inspire, entertain, and empower your audience with your message.
The data and the deck are not enough; you have to tell a story. And not just any story but your story. Why are you the person giving this presentation? What do you have to say? And how are you going to take advantage of this opportunity?

I discovered how to silence my inner critic and unleash an abundant stream of creative energy. I would definitely recommend this as a corporate team building exercise. As a professional speaker, it is useful in speaking extemporaneously. Mindi D.
This workshop was ridiculously fun and revolutionized not only the way I think about Power Point presentations but any type of presentation. I learned how to discover my personal story and apply it to a completely random situation and not get derailed. I learned how to let go of fear and feel at ease with the seemingly dangerous risk of bringing myself to the moment. I learned how to bring alive the typical sterile presentation by applying my genuine self/voice. Sheer genius and five stars!Matt K.
