Larry Tracy


Larry Tracy has been cited as one of the top presentation skills/orals coaches in the US in several books. He is a member of the Project Management Institute of Washington, DC (PMIWDC),the largest PMI Chapter in the world, and has spoken at more PMIWDC events than any person in the last three years. He specializes in showing PMs how to deliver contract-winning oral presentations, especially to the federal government. FAR Part 15 stipulates that RFP-required orals must be delivered by the technical experts who will work on the contract, not marketing experts or professional speakers. Consequently, PMs must be “sellers.” Larry brings not derivative classroom theory to the field of orals coaching, but “been there, done that” real world experience. As an Army colonel detailed to the State Department, he was described by President Ronald Reagan as “an extraordinarily effective speaker” for his success in debating controversial policy issues before some of the most demanding, even hostile, audiences in the country. He had previously headed the Pentagon’s top briefing team, responsible for the daily intelligence presentation to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. His book, The Shortcut to Persuasive Presentations, has been credited as directly contributing to the winning of large contracts, and has also been cited as “must reading for anyone aspiring to the C Suite.” He has lived in South America, speaks fluent Spanish, and can conduct his coaching in that language.
