Ready to nail that speech?

Take the first steps.

You’ve got important things to say and do. Don’t let your fear of public speaking
stand in the way of success. Let’s get you heard.

Public speaking for any role

No more fear – Imagine how much more you could do if you could speak effectively and
communicate your ideas clearly to your peers, customers or execs.
Don’t let your fears stand in the way.

In today’s competitive business environment, communicating your ideas clearly and confidently is an essential component to job success. People with strong speaking skills add value by engaging, inspiring, convincing and moving people to action.

But, if leading an executive meeting or presenting to unfamiliar audiences feels like torture (or worse), you’re not alone. Fear of speaking out is real, even if you appear confident, articulate and successful on the outside.

It doesn’t make sense. It feels irrational and can make you freeze up at the wrong times — in front of customers, peers or execs — causing panic, anxiety and a feeling that you can’t reach your full potential…until you learn the knowledge and technique to perform at your job confidently.

If you’re afraid to speak in stressful situations, it’s typically not one of those skills you can ‘figure out on your own’ or ‘get over’ just because you are accomplished and promoted. I’ve seen business professionals try quick fixes or try self-help that can’t get to the root of the problem.

For over 15 years as a private executive speech coach, I’ve helped professionals at various stages of their careers — from high school graduates to middle managers to busy, C-level senior executives. I know how much you dread situational speaking fear and how much it’s holding you back. I believe you deserve to acquire the knowledge, technique, and vocal authority you need to communicate effectively…comfortably…anytime, anywhere.

You have so many ideas, so much to say, and so many people who depend on you. I am the private coach who will guide you to advance into comfortable, clear, and confident speaking.
