I've been there. I once hid in the men's room when it was my time to speak. My path from nervous presenter to paid speaker has taught me so much. Let me use those experiences to help you.

What You Can Expect

Your coaching, either in-person or online, will not come from a junior associate. I work directly with all my clients in one-on-one, private sessions.

In our first session, we sharpen the focus on your own challenges and goals. We then create a strategy designed specifically for you and review what you can expect from future sessions.

The following sessions (each about an hour) focus on your challenges, helping you begin to cultivate your new super power. In them, we will

    - reveal a new way to prepare for speaking that eases anxiety and makes you more interesting
    - learn techniques that help you feel more in control
    - gather new insights on how to be clearer and how to use technology to enhance that clarity
    - learn how to anticipate and overcome any speaking surprises
    - provide homework assignments to test run what you have learned
    - have roll-up-your sleeve sessions that provide step-by-step guidance on how to outline a great speech
    - delve into humor, graphics, and style
    - underscore the value of effective feedback

You will do an actual presentation that I will videotape and review and offer constructive counsel. We end our course with a personalized blue print for speaking that you create and use for the rest of your life. Finally, we schedule a checkup appointment six months later, at no additonal cost, to review your progress.
