About Us

We are proud to be in our 22nd year doing what we love most—helping business people learn the tips & techniques that make giving business presentations easy, impactful and FUN!

Teaching, learning, and fun.

The Confidence Builders Team loves to make classes fun! It’s the only way we know how to teach. Our corporate motto is Laughter Precedes Learning. We live by that rule. We spend lots of time thinking about what needs to go into a program or training course. We love to do the research–read the books and articles, talk to the experts, then come up with the 6 1/2 Step Programs that will make the most sense to our clients. We get to see people laugh, learn and grow. Seeing the “aha” look on a client’s face when he or she gets a concept and begins to use it is the juice that keeps the Confidence Builders team going.

Confidence Builders was founded in 1994 by the mother/daughter team of Dorothy Lynn and Jessica Selasky. Dorothy Lynn passed away in 2013 after enjoying a rewarding and meaningful career. She started with the Presidents Association, a division of American Management Association, and she ended up co-founding Confidence Builders. She brought so much enthusiasm, knowledge, and fun to our company. She will be greatly missed, but her words and ideas will forever live on in our Confidence Builders programs.
