Do the words "You need to speak at our next meeting" send chills down your spine? You're not alone. Many people would rather visit their dentist than speak in front of a group. Despite that fear, you want to nail your next presentation. You want to be perceived as the confident and capable professional you really are. If this is you, please consider hiring a public speaking coach.
I work with people who want to take their presentation skills up a notch and gain confidence, even in situations they feel are highly stressful. In our initial meeting we can discuss your specific needs. Together, we'll work on your non-verbal communication (including how to manage your nerves), PowerPoint slides, organizing your thoughts, and opening and closing your presentation.
My goal is to create a safe environment where you can experiment, grow and build muscle memory. Then, when you stand in front of a real audience — peers, bosses, clients, anyone — you will show them your best self.
Contact me for a FREE 15-minute consultation. Let's see if we're a good fit.
I work with a wide range of people; lawyers, IT professionals, accountants, salespeople, engineers, and physicians.
Whether you are starting your career or have been working for decades I can help you polish your skills. You will see real-time improvements. These changes will be permanent.
If you are wanting to become more influential and persuasive coaching will help you get there.
"Laurie has been a great coach and tremendous help in improving the quality of my presentations. The use of practice sessions/video tools as well as current best practice training were well balanced and supported the learning process.
Her openness and honesty as well as willingness to assist in many complementary areas (effective video/teleconferencing, tone, posture, stress management etc.) made her a real pleasure to work with. She has made herself available to support and provide feedback on day-to-day issues/questions during our time together.
I fully recommend and endorse her services."
