Public speaking workshops and coaching for executives and their teams.
For Executives and Senior Managers, it is almost impossible to overestimate the value of effective verbal communication on a daily basis. You are already experts in your business, and coaching can help take your presence on the corporate stage to the next level. Taking the time to learn effective communication techniques for both large audiences and smaller encounters will enhance both your personal and corporate brands.
Services for executives and senior managers include:
Develop and Strengthen your authentic voice.
Release vocal tension to discover a more connected, clearer, and expressive voice. Actors and creatives can use this work to bring more feeling and depth to monologue and scene work, reduce vocal strain, and increase voice power.
Accent Softening and Accent Acquisition
Improve your Neutral North American English Pronunciation, or learn an accent for the stage or screen.
Whether the accent you need is from across the pond, south of the 49th parallel or all the way around the world, I can help.
