On Speaking Terms would like to ask you: What is the #1 single greatest challenge you face with public speaking?
- feeling confident
- reading the audience
- managing stage fright
- engaging people
- knowing how to make an impact
For 25 years, I’ve been coaching public speaking in New York City and have learned a lot about what audiences love and what they tune out. To me, presenting is a type of performance, and much more involved than “just talking.” My technique asks each speaker to focus on their message, and its importance to the audience. Then we figure out the most interesting, engaging and educational ways to get that message across. Win/Win every time.
What Clients are Saying
“I want to thank you for all that you did – honestly speaking I wouldn’t have been able to do it if it weren’t for you. Merci. My director here in Montreal wants to put it up on the website.”
“Katie- I’m happy to report these are typical of the emails I’m getting this morning! I really credit you with getting me to the place where my nerves were an afterthought, not a major hurdle to be overcome. Thank you again so much. “
You CAN Become a Great Speaker
I have been able to help clients overcome stage fright and learn key principles of speaking in a variety of ways:
- Private Coaching
- Phone Sessions for Public Speaking Therapy
People in business are judged by how they speak. Fair or not, that’s how it is.
My technique combines classical theater training in the Carnegie Mellon tradition, with best practices for business communication, rounded out with sports psychology. It’s flexible, thorough and effective.
