What I Offer: I offer individual coaching and group training for specific events and for general skills. I teach presentation delivery, presentation writing and communications skills. Since I create each curriculum to meet the unique needs of the client, you will never receive any “canned” instruction.
I frequently work with a speaker on a high-stakes communication from start to finish: from conception, through the writing process, to advising on and overseeing production of visuals, eventually coaching on delivery and even hand-holding at the event. I am based in New York City, but will travel or coach remotely by phone or video. I also speak and can coach in French. Read More >>
I believe the most effective communication depends upon creating a connection with one’s audience in both content and delivery, and I live that principle in my presentation coaching practice.
By creating an atmosphere of trust and acceptance and encouraging clients to stretch themselves, I help them speak authentically, conveying the passion they feel for their topic. With presentation skills coaching, they feel more confident with their material and more comfortable being themselves before a group.
I coach with levity and humor, model natural behaviors, give accessible every-day examples and make the process as casual and fun as possible, all the while upholding the professional requirements of the situation and task.
I believe in a “soft sell” approach to communications yet I am also direct and rigorous in my presentation coaching. And with my spirited, energetic and charismatic style, clients never complain of being bored.
