The ability to communicate and connect with your audience and peers is the most important skill you need to be successful and satisfied in your work. Times have changed and we are going to meet the demands of the times. If you’re tired of the same old strategy to deal with battling your fear of speaking and you've become successful in spite of it, I can help. I have been working with executives for years and have coached countless people to communicate effectively. If you need information about your set up, sound, set, wardrobe... zoom... everything that goes into making this new world efficient and effective, I’ll show you how. If you’re presenting to co-workers on zoom and you’re struggling with getting your message through from your tiny little square and your power point slides are even putting you to sleep, let’s work. It’s going to be ok. As a method acting coach, I’m going to give you the tools actors use to inspire and communicate to others. If your nerves are on edge I’ll work with you to manage your performance anxiety. And we will address presenting for live audiences as well. You will finally be able to have some peace while you do your work. You’ll be able to speak to groups large or small, on camera and off. I’ll collaborate with you to practice these skills and you'll feel safe and have fun in the process. I look forward to meeting you!
