professional development trainers


Our mission is to train the world, and we believe that whether you’re a Fortune 100 exec, a high-profile celebrity, a local educator, or a community leader, you should have access to meaningful learning and development.

But we understand that not every organization or individual can make that investment. That’s why we started our Gives Back initiative, which brings the power of Own The Room trainings to nonprofits, schools, and communities around the globe at no cost. We’re here to help you experience the Own The Room transformation so you can do better at doing good.


Gives Back is open to non-profit organizations, educators, school or youth groups (15 years and up), and faith communities. These sessions are also used as further training and certification opportunities for our highly experienced Coaches.

Heidi Schroderus

Director The United Nations

"I would like to thank Own The Room and its excellent team for the training on presentation and communication skills delivered to our staff 9 November 2018. Our office is rather unique within the Secretariat of the United Nations as we have been entrusted with the task of advocating for the most vulnerable groups of countries at the global policy level. We often find ourselves in the position of explaining what are the unique challenges that the most disadvantaged countries face to a diverse set of actors, ranging from high-level government officials, other international civil servants, civil society or the top executives of private companies. I saw all staff come out of the training exhausted but excited and empowered by their new communication skills. I have already seen these skills used at UN meetings."

On July 4-5, 2018, 100+ rising stars in South Africa received complimentary Own The Room Communication Training. Check out the impact we had in South Africa and around the world!
