More about Larry Tracy
Larry Tracy has trained more than 2000 civil servants, Foreign Service Officers and military officers who have attended his “Presentation Skills in a Nutshell” workshops. Larry is a retired Army colonel, and formerly managed and trained the Pentagon's top briefing team, responsible for the daily strategic intelligence presentation to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary of Defense as well as other Washington decision-makers. He was later assigned to the State Department, and in the next three years he made almost 400 presentations, which led to President Ronald Reagan describing him as "An extraordinarily effective speaker" as a result of his successful efforts in explaining, defending and debating controversial foreign policy issues before some of the toughest audiences in the country.
He has appeared on numerous national television programs, including Crossfire, Nightline, CNN Worldnews, and The MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour. Larry is cited in The Information Please Business Almanac as one of the top presentation coaches in the country. His website (www.tracy-presentation.com) is ranked number one on Google for “Persuasive Presentations.”
His January 2005 speech to the National Speakers Association, “Taming Hostile Audiences,” was published in the March 1 “Vital Speeches of the Day,” along with speeches by President Bush and Fed Chairman Greenspan. The speech was then selected as the centerpiece of the July issue of “American Speaker,” the leading publication in the US for public speaking instruction, with Larry’s photo on the cover. The editor of that magazine, formerly the chief speechwriter in the White House, hailed the speech as ““exemplary… an outstanding speech teaching a number of invaluable lessons on how to give a winning performance to the most hostile of audiences.”
