I have had the pleasure of taking a number of speech
, leadership, and persuasive language
courses. I have utilized that training in both professional and hobby atmospheres, giving lectures and presentations for crowds as large as 450.Public speaking
comes naturally to some, and is a learned trait for others. I am of the latter group. As an inherently shy child, I grew up fighting to be able to speak in front of others with conviction. Over the years, I have grown significantly, training myself out of bad behaviors and into front line speaking roles.
My professional experience includes national tours as an ambassador, speaking on a variety of topics for over 2000 Investment
Advisors over 12 cities, while my hobbies have put me in lectures/training presentations for groups ranging from 20 - 150.
I will teach you how to present yourself effectively, allowing you to not only deliver your message, but engage your audience to ensure they retain it. If you have natural speaking skills, fantastic! I will help you refine your skills and build a better speaking presence. If you are not a natural public speaker, that's okay too! The number one fear in America (over death) is Public Speaking. We'll address fears, practice confidence exercises, and work on refining your skills so you can not only confidently get on stage, but give a great, engaging speech.
Tutoring sessions can be done one on one, or in groups. The students decide! In all cases, the curriculum will consist of both lectures and practice speeches. This is a craft you cannot learn without practical application, after all.
My fee represents 1:1 training, though discounted rates for groups apply.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve success!
