"Do or do not.  There is no try."

~ Yoda

Wisdom from a small but powerful master.  Yoda has it figured out…There’s no trying in  public speaking there is just doing.  If you’re reading this then you know you need to make a change, step in and try something different to make you a better communicator, a better speaker.  That’s where I come in. Like Yoda I’m a different kind of trainer. 

A different kind of trainer...

   Expect laughter

   Expect surprises

   Expect breakthroughs

   Expect to stretch yourself

   Expect to discover your strengths

   Expect a skilled, empathetic and creative trainer

"Be yourself.
Everyone else is taken.”

~ Oscar Wilde


I get it.

Being yourself in front of others can feel like a big risk. But if you work with me I’ll meet you where you're at.  Because everybody starts at a different place. 
Know that no matter where you start I’ll teach you to:
 

Be Clear

Do you meander around your topic hoping people will get your point?

Be Confident

Are you convinced you need more time to prepare any and every time you speak?

Be You

This is the part most people forget...to be themselves.   Do you allow your personality to shine through or are you pretending to be someone else?

It’s all about me…well my Bio is anyway. 

I’ve had a dynamic roller-coaster life so far…and I don’t plan to get off the ride.  With a  25-year career in broadcasting, acting, and adult education, it’s taught me  to be a fun, dynamic  and off-the-cuff speaker and facilitator.  I’ve always genuinely believed that public speaking can be fun. No really. Trust me.  I love to create custom, entertaining speaking sessions that meet people where they’re at regardless of their level of experience. One on one or in a group,  I always do all of the crazy but effective exercises I ask my clients to do.  I must say I’m often impressed when people embrace their power of speaking and level up their communications skills.  Because in the end all speaking is public speaking.   

"Don’t be upset by the results you didn’t get with the work you didn’t do."

~ Richard Swart

Change Your Speaking Fear to
your Speaking Power

Yup you’ve got to do the work. But the rewards will be worth it. 

You might be stuck; you might be afraid; you might have an old ‘speaking horror story’– but if you’re willing to take the first step with me, I guarantee you, we can change any speaking Fear you have into what it should be – your speaking Power.

The Reluctant Speaker

Take the next step toward becoming and excellent communicator and learn to Speak with Confidence. 

Do you avoid public speaking of every kind? Have you considered the cost? Like many things, speaking in front of others is a skill you can learn. But the first hurdle is to get past the story you consistently tell yourself about why you can’t do it. That’s the first step, and that’s where every Reluctant Speaker must begin. What if you began today?

What are people saying…

Without me paying them to say it.
