About Chad

I have nearly twenty (20) years' experience coaching and mentoring both highly skilled presenters and beginners. This experience includes working with students, business executives, politicians, and more. With experienced presenters, I focus on refining their existing abilities while honing how (emphasis, pacing, elocution, etc.) they deliver a message. With less experienced presenters, I begin by giving them 3 to 5 simple principles that aid them in overcoming fear. These simple reminders are remarkably successful at unlocking their potential for success.

My own experience includes not only twenty years of coaching and mentoring experience, but also experience as a corporate training consultant, radio host, pastor, and frequent key note speaker. Formally, I studied both political and religious communication while attaining two Masters' degrees.

Among the key principles that I apply to my coaching and training is the belief that fear is overcome primarily by "hands on" experience. Students are then able to settle into their own speaking style and excel as communicators. Another vital concept that I apply is the notion that feedback/coaching should be in "small bites" and should include the right blend of positive affirmations with suggestions for improvement.

My schedule is flexible which will allow me to meet for coaching sessions almost any time. Additionally, I am available to attend events where you are required to speak publicly. This allows me to get a feel for your strengths and weaknesses and set a baseline for instruction.

I have well-honed methods for working with students on public speaking skills in one-on-one sessions. They carry over very well to the real world. Also, I offer consults with both parents and students (for no charge) prior to beginning tutoring. The atmosphere of learning that I set is always relaxed and fun. Bring your coffee and expect low stress.

Warmest Regards,

Chad G.
