Public speaking is a special communication medium integrating the mind, body, and heart. Preparation for this medium should be special as well. Speech coaching breaks down the entire speaking experience from a whole-body approach: starting with the speaker mindset, moving through the look - sound - feel, and finishing with feedback and follow up. Clients walk away from speech coaching with an elevated production value for any presentation/event, a proven preparation process going forward and a better embrace of the medium itself.

Preparing a message and polishing delivery skills is plenty for any presenter to focus on. Adding a video camera or online platform to the mix is a whole other ballgame! The keys to on-camera effectiveness are preparation, structure and connection. Media Training allows presenters the luxury of time to thoroughly prepare for the before - during - after stages of any media interview or virtual event, build a framework around messaging that helps audiences digest and connect with content, and practice storytelling for greater recall and lasting  impact.
