I believe that everyone should be able to share their knowledge and experience confidently. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for most.
As a public speaking coach and trainer, I specialize in helping people who want to be (and need to be) more effective every time they speak in public — whether they’re presenting in meetings, speaking on stage, or selling to prospects.
I work with them through one-to-one coaching, corporate group training, and public workshops. As a result, they can increase their impact, increase their influence, and increase their income.
I know what people are going through when it comes to dealing with speaking in front public. You see, I’ve been there!
Throughout my childhood, I dealt with a lisp and a stutter. Consequently, I grew up to be shy and introverted, avoiding communicating with others as much as possible.
Then, when I got into the business world, I quickly realized that my lack of presentation skills kept me at a disadvantage. I tried to overcome this deficiency by overcompensating in other areas, but it was to no avail. I was working harder and getting nowhere fast.
A decision to make
I had a decision to make. I could ignore my situation and ultimately look back on my career with regret, or I could develop persuasive public speaking and presentation skills and enjoy the level of success I had envisioned. I went with the second choice.
There had to be a better way
I did everything I could to teach myself the skills I needed. Although I did learn new skills, my progress was excruciatingly slow. And the worst part about going it alone was that I had no way of knowing what I was doing was right. There had to be a better way.
Finally, I got the help I needed
Finally, I connected with a professional public speaking coach, and I’m so glad I did! Working with my coach, I developed the skills I needed to move my career forward, and I did it at a much faster pace than I ever would have on my own.
My speaking experience
I have been speaking to audiences for more than 30 years to people in six countries and each of the 48 contiguous states. My audiences have ranged from as high as 2,000 to as few as two daring soles who braved a Minnesota whiteout.
My training experience
For more than 15 years, I have helped others develop into speakers who positively affect others — who understand how to craft and deliver presentations that engage, persuade, and inspire.
My clients include:
I have also been the official public speaking coach for two TEDx events and worked with speakers in several others.
My greatest thrill comes when I see the transformation my clients go through and the confidence they gain in various aspects of their lives as they become more powerful, more effective public speakers and communicators.
