WHY PUBLIC SPEAKING?
Why do we need professional coaches for public speaking skills? Seems like it’s something we all do, every day, like breathing, or eating. Unfortunately, the fight or flight response that we all experience when speaking in front of 1- 1000 people can be a permanent detriment to your professional reputation, development, and ability to be seen as the expert you know you are. Whether its a simple avoidance of speaking, to completely spacing out on the information you wanted to share, or talking so fast or incomprehensibly the audience is left stunned/ bored/disappointed, wondering what you just said.
In this highly fierce marketplace, the competitive edge you gain from being a confident, relaxed, dynamic speaker is vital. I’ll help you get there, whether your goals are extremely specific, like an upcoming high stakes presentation, or broad, like taking the initiative to speak and actually enjoy it. My clients range from large corporations like Dell and Aveda, CEOs and Presidents, to individuals such as business owners and attorneys, and more. In addition to my extensive training in performance skills as a film and stage actor, I am also a long time business owner, and understand that to be effective, our work must be immediately applicable to your world, your industry, and your goals. I am proud to guarantee that after one hour, you will have a new awareness and skill set that can be applied before you walk out the door. Life’s too short to hide behind the podium.
