About Laura L Bresee
Executive Speech Coach
When an individual’s job requires frequent public speaking with little or no time to prepare, speech and vocal confidence often suffer. Lack of preparation and practice of the subject matter will undoubtedly result in visible symptoms of speech anxiety. I am passionate about instructing research-based speech organization and voice delivery strategies to busy professionals who regularly question their communication effectiveness.
I know from personal experience that incorporating new habits into your public speaking routine can be uncomfortable. I believe one will adapt to the new skill set easier by receiving knowledge and training from multiple perspectives. As a speech language pathologist, I remain in touch with research literature and use it to generate measurable goals. As a coach, I use a whole person approach to training that goes beyond clinical practice. With caring consideration of one’s desires, goals, personality traits and limitations, the client and I work together to create a customized, results-driven training plan. When the client is able to transfer the newly acquired skills to their interpersonal and business communications with both confidence and accuracy, he or she will conduct presentations effectively using a voice of leadership.
My educational background includes a Bachelors and Masters degree in Speech, Language and Hearing Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I am licensed in Tennessee and certified by the American Speech and Hearing Association. Memphis Speech Solutions is federally recognized as a Woman Owned Small Business certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
Solutions for Speech. Solutions for Life.
