About Yolanda

Public Speaking is a challenge to many people. That's why being coached is imperative to those that are going to be speaking to a group. Public Speaking is not only WHAT you say but HOW you say it. And the impact of your presentation is going to depend on the POWER of your delivery!

As a member of Toastmasters International for almost 15 years, I have learned the valuable details that can make or break a speech. Once you know what to do, giving a speech can be fun!

I have had the opportunity to use my coaching knowledge in many different ways:

-I was employed for 3 years by the Dale Carnegie Corporation as an assistant to the Dale Carnegie Public Speaking Course and the High Impact Presentation Course for Individuals.
-As an Artist Teacher at Inside Out Community Arts for 10 years, I worked with students in the development of plays which were presented in a professional theatre. Working with them in creating and performing the plays required many aspects that are parallel to giving a speech.
-As an Actor, I have had plenty of experience in front of the camera and on stage. I have used the skills that I learned in acting and applied them to Public Speaking such as vocal variety, body language, emotional range and even speech formatting. These are key to a powerful presentation!
-Also, as a member of Toastmasters, I became a competitor...

My winnings spanned from Club levels to Area levels to Division Levels all the way up to winning the International District 1 competition! I have coached Students, Engineers, Military Personnel, Realtors and even other Toastmasters with enthusiasm, fun and success!

I feel it is important for each person that I coach to see their progress. With that said, each session is video recorded. I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy and offer make-up classes. Meeting location will be determined upon contact.

So contact me and lets get started on the road to giving your next great speech!
