Perform at your peak with consistency and confidence.

The business leaders I work with are all looking for the same thing:  They want to improve their presence, polish their presentations, and communicate with the kind of impact and authenticity that cements relationships and moves others into action.

And because the stakes are often very high, with sales, career opportunities, and reputations on the line, there’s a strong need to make the greatest progress in the shortest amount of time.

That’s why private, individual communications coaching has been the cornerstone of my work since I hung out my shingle in 2003.  The focused, customized nature of the coaching sessions lets us get to the heart of the obstacles that are keeping you from presenting, communicating and leading with the greatest confidence and impact.

Through discussion, creative exercises, videotaped simulation, and tried-and-true theatre-based techniques, you’ll define and embrace your unique Transformational Presence, so you can perform at your peak with consistency and confidence.

Coaching is offered in person, by phone, or via SKYPE.
