I help clients step onto a bigger stage

Often, that’s literally a bigger stage, like a TED Talk, or an All-Hands in front of 100’s of employees, or an industry conference in front of 1000’s of colleagues.

 And I help my executive coaching clients answer the deeper question:

"What’s the next stage of your work in the world?"

 

Are Any of These True for You?

  • "I am up for a major promotion but need to develop a stronger presence."

  • "I want to increase my influence, but need more confidence and clarity."

  • "I have to give a presentation at a major conference or high-stakes meeting, but I feel under-prepared and nervous.”

  • “I get stage fright when I have to present to people of power and authority — and thus forget my own.”

  • "I want to be a more engaging and effective leader but time and focus are an ongoing challenge."

  • "I'm ready to invest in increasing my visibility and advancing my career."

I CAN HELP YOU

Discover the Secret to Your Speaking Success.

Influential leaders, authors and speakers from many disciplines have called me their “secret weapon.” They call me when they’re speaking to thousands, or when they have a make-or-break conversation and they know a coach can help them succeed.

I would love to be standing in the wings with you when it’s your time to walk on stage and shine.

I have coached social entrepreneurs, best-selling authors, non-profit leaders, corporate executives, and conference keynote presenters to conquer their public speaking anxiety and command the stage.  Helping clients step away from the podium and authentically engage the audience, is a hallmark of my work.

I would love to help you extend your reach and inspire your audience to take meaningful action. Step onto a bigger stage with one-to-one executive coaching and group presentation skills training. You can get started by contacting us to
