Nashville, TN, January 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Podium Master, the leading authority in presentational and public speaking training and speech coaching, has joined forces with the Parnassus Institute, an educational organization long dedicated to the transcendence of the Presentational and Leadership Arts.
"This will provide us with access to additional markets, and will be instrumental in our further growth," says Jeanette Henderson, co-founder of Podium Master. "It’s an excellent strategic fit."
Ms. Henderson and her husband and partner Roy Henderson have been offering presentational training since they first met in 1986, and have been the official presentation advisors and speech coaches to every Republican National Convention since 1992.
Their recent book "There's No Such Thing as Public Speaking" (Penguin-Prentice Hall 2007) has reached the #2 spot on both Amazon and Books-a-Million for books on public speaking. Ms. Henderson is also the co-host of the new talk radio show "Straight Talk", which airs in Middle Tennessee every Tuesday at 5:00 pm on WCPI 91.3 FM.
Parnassus Institute itself provides Leadership and Team-building Training to executives, corporations, associations and organizations of all kinds, and welcomes the addition of the Podium Master programs to their organization, which will now be able to offer those same groups the presentational training of Podium Master into their curriculum.
Its not-for-profit subsidiary, Parnassus Productions, provides educational theatrical stage productions to universities, colleges and regional theaters, and is currently touring with the Pulitzer-nominated production of "The Legacy of Galileo" by Rusty Bynum. They also offer Master Classes in Acting while on tour.
