He’s a former Army Colonel and at one time headed the Pentagon’s top briefing team, responsible for the daily intelligence presentation to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Because of his speaking skills, he was later detailed by the White House to the State Department where he subsequently spoke and debated almost 400 times on controversial foreign policy issues before some of the most demanding, even hostile, audiences in the country, leading to President Reagan calling him “an extraordinarily effective speaker.”
He has been cited as one of the top presentation skills trainers/coaches in the country in publications such as the Information Please Business Almanac and Sourcebook, published by Houghton-Mifflin, Best of the Best, published by Insight Publishing, and What to Say When… You’re Dying on the Platform, published by McGraw-Hill. He conducts workshops for corporations and government agencies, and trains corporate teams to deliver winning oral presentations for government and commercial contracts. He has recently conducted “Briefing Training” for the Navy’s Seal Team Six.
Here is a sample of what others have said of Larry’s speaking and coaching:
“You have been a splendid spokesman for America...an extraordinarily effective speaker... meeting with hundreds of audiences at the White House and in communities across the country, as well as abroad.” President Ronald Reagan
“In a Department that prides itself on its communication skills; you became the standard to match in public oratory.” Ambassador Otto Reich, U.S. Department of State
"Larry Tracy is one of the most articulate advocates I've ever seen operate on the platform. He's crisp and clear, his logic and thinking first-rate. As a speech coach myself, I continue to learn from him." John Jay Daly, Founder of the National Capital Speakers Association
(Larry Tracy’s speech) “‘Taming Hostile Audiences’ is a model of it kind, an outstanding speech…that teaches a number of invaluable lessons on how to give a winning performance, even to the most hostile of audiences.” Aram Bakskian, Jr. Editor in chief, American Speaker magazine (Former Chief Speech writer for President Reagan)
“I wanted to express a ‘heartfelt thanks’ for all of your help during our oral boards prep process…. From my perspective, our success was due in no small way to you guiding us along the process. I greatly appreciated the carefully chosen words you provided for my closing remarks. They kept us on point and were powerful words!” Dan Balberchak Jr. Captain, USN (Ret), Deputy Project Manager, Sayers and Associates, San Diego, CA
“Larry Tracy’s training is based on the real world--the high profile "fishbowls" of the White House, and the national security, intelligence and defense establishments. All are high stakes crucibles where clear and concise communications can make or break decisions, policies, careers, and even administrations. He shows how to deliver your message in the most persuasive manner possible.” Jim McCarthy, President, AOC Key Solutions, Chantilly, VA
“The ability to get buy-in is one of the most and valuable skills that an employee or manager can have to be successful. Larry Tracy is a recognized expert in presentations training. He received the highest evaluations we’ve ever had.”Anne Kelly, CEO, Federal Consulting Group, Department of the Treasury
