MY APPROACH TO PUBLIC SPEAKING COACHING

 

 
 

My Clients
Some of my clients are highly successful speakers, and some are just beginning. Some of my clients enjoy public speaking, and some are afraid of it. All of my clients have different needs and individual styles of learning, and I enjoy discovering what really helps each person.

Basic Approach
When we work one-on-one, an open dialogue between us (rather than a fixed road map) keeps our focus on your individual needs and what really helps you. This process is sometimes unconventional, often enjoyable, and surprisingly effective.

In a group workshop setting, our focus is on fundamentals like dealing well with anxiety, developing greater presence, engaging an audience, and creating compelling content. There's also individual coaching to address your specific needs.

Focus Areas
Depending on your needs, we can focus on these and other areas:

  • Confidence: learn how to work with fear and other challenges until you can turn them into strengths.
     
  • Delivery / Presence: engage and inspire an audience by becoming more vividly present. 
     
  • Preparation: learn what helps you practice effectively before presentations (including PowerPoint), speeches, lectures, pitches, trials, meetings, interviews, etc.
     
  • Content / Story: clarify and simplify what you're communicating, focusing on why it matters to you and to your audience.
     
  • Leadership and Communication: develop your leadership skills by developing your capacity to communicate what really matters. Become aware of what's hindering you and hone what makes you most effective. 

My Influences
I use a variety of approaches to address your public speaking needs. Our work will be practical, conceptual, and experiential, and the emphasis will change as needed.
