Don't you just LOVE public speaking? No? If you said no, you are a member of a very LARGE group.
But fear no more! I want to HELP you CONQUER your fear for good! I am very passionate about watching my students go from insecure, fearful speakers to speakers who confidently command the attention of the room.

I have been a Public Speaking Professor for 7 years. I have taught at Houston Community College, Lone Star College and currently at Sam Houston State University.

I have successfully helped more than 1500 students become competent communicators.

As a motivational speaker, I have had the opportunity to speak to more than 3,000 individuals.

As a consultant, I have worked privately with engineers, mathematicians and physicists to help them become more comfortable with social settings and public speaking.

Let's get started so you can soar in your personal and professional life! And, we'll have fun while doing it!

My experience with Ms. Johnson was gratifying and a great learning experience. She provided me with the fundamentals that I needed to be effective in my delivery of instruction. I felt very comfortable and was able to take risk in my learning and apply my learning at a more rigorous level. I am grateful for her expertise and very confident that I am now equipped with the marketable skill of speaking before others.

I had been nervous about an upcoming presentation I had for work. I began working with Kristi practicing my presentation. She has definitely helped me improve my confidence in the information I will be sharing with my company. My presentation went well, and my department supervisor loved it. I was chosen to represent the department and present during the regional company meeting. I am ready and excited for the opportunity.

Kristi easily relates to each person in her class and always encourages you to reach your highest level. She is supportive of what your public speaking goal is and helps in every way possible to get you to that goal. She is patient and caring about her students. She has a lot of experience in public speaking and is very knowledgeable about the subject. Her classes are enjoyable and everyone leaves feeling more comfortable about their ability to speak in public settings. I would highly recommend her class to anyone desiring to feel more at ease when providing presentations and speeches.

I used to be afraid to speak in front of a crowd. After attending Kristi class I now have the knowledge and techniques needed to succeed in my career. The most valuable lesson that I took away from her class is how to have confidence in myself.

"I enthusiastically recommend Kristi Johnson for any teaching profession where PATIENCE, COURTESY and a WINNING MANNER of "I Fear No More "attitude for Public Speaking are important". I have known Mrs. Johnson for over 16yrs, and she has guided me throughout my career. She has taught me the importance of public speaking and not to fear it if I ever made contact with it. Because of her dedication, effort and timeless mentorship, I was able to reach my career goal as a Police Officer. I couldn't have made it through my Oral board interview without her voice of knowledge, patience and no fear.

I highly recommend Mrs. Johnson as your Public speaker teacher.

Thanks Mrs. Johnson for your dedication to your students and myself!!
