Public Speaking and Professionalism Coaching
Gravitas--how you act. Communication--how you speak. These combine to create your overall professional presence. These skills can be taught, and I'm here to help you learn them. I am passionate about helping people feel comfortable in their own skin, whether that’s in a job interview, on stage presenting, arguing a point in a meeting, navigating a networking event, or working well with employers, employees, and clients. I want my clients to know they can handle themselves with imperturbable self-assurance so they can go on to land the job, the client, the promotion, the paycheck that they want. And I want each of them to do this with authenticity and confidence.
