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!

With over 30 years of public speaking as a radio host with a two hour weekly program, as a concert pianist giving Salons and Master Classes speaking to thousands of people live, internationally as well as on television and radio, I am well experienced and qualified to help you achieve great results! Some of my other experience is in broadcasting including work with NPR and UofR as well as doing some comedy, acting, film and voice over throughout the years. My work and practice on both coasts in psychology of performance while coaching corporate and private clients in presentation techniques has helped many people. We will work on the specific issues that are unique to each of us and on general ones to we all have to face. Forget about stress and worry in front of others. Forget about judgement of self and that of others. Forget about the fear you think will never go away. Concentration, preparation and self knowledge plus experience, positive experience that is... are the key to your success. I will coach you every step of the way as I have worked with children of all ages throughout these decades. My non-profit for the arts and my teaching years have reminded me of what we all know at the age of discovery and problems that change as we grow older. I have kept the bridges in my mind between the ages and now I understand well the perspective of all ages in between. We will work preferably online but can meet at a public place where we can talk and project our voices. That is always a challenge in a place like a public library or Starbucks, as in the first place one must whisper and in the other - everyone screams to outdo one another. So, again in the winter I prefer online work. I always encourage the parents to be present and be able to help later at home with what has been learned. Looking forward to hearing from you and working together!
