There's general belief that if you know English and know your topic, you SHOULD be able to give presentations. And that's a shame because there's like 15-20 other things that will make this easier and more successful, but most people never learn them. They just muddle through, often feeling bad that they aren't intuitively better at it. Or they take a class where they got so little of the trainer's attention that it hardly makes a difference.
By comparison, one-on-one public speaking skills coaching gives us the chance to figure out where you're at, what your challenges are, what's great and unique about you that we can accentuate...and move forward together to take you to your next level. Sometimes, that's from already-good to great!
We didn't learn to read, tie our shoes, do math, cook, or drive while 30 people stared at us; why would we think that's the best way to learn to improv presentation skills? And of course that builds fear! Let's get people GOOD first and THEN put them in front of their audiences...be that 3 people or 1000.
I blend a strong background in communications and writing with 30+ years of improvisation and theatre to help people make their material, no matter how data oriented at times, feel lively, concise, and relatable.

“I now know easy secrets that make presentations look good. Together, we pruned down the talk to sharpen the message, added touches to better hold attention, and worked on my delivery. The work was extremely helpful…I stood up, cracked out my introduction, got their attention, and with the preparation behind me and a great message before me, I couldn’t believe how smoothly the delivery went and how much fun it was. I had many, many compliments
