Presentation Coaching

If you will be presenting to a VIP, speaking in front of a large audience, or giving media interviews, you may be realizing that good isn't good enough - you need to do your best work.

However, the ability to create a great presentation, sales pitch, or keynote speech is quite different from the ability to deliver it.

That’s why most presentation experts are either writers, who help you with content creation, or actor/directors, who help you with delivery.

What makes me different is my experience both as a speechwriter and a performance director.

This is relevant because often the most important way to improve your delivery is to make the content more congruent with who you are and how you speak.

My approach is to work with you to develop clear and compelling material that expresses your key points and persuades listeners to act.

Then, I’ll help you infuse that material with your personality so your optimal presentation style emerges organically.

Creativity Coaching

Over the last twenty years, I have worked with national experts and thought leaders to create content such as slideshows, presentations, informational books, keynote speeches, fundraising pitches, and digital courses.

Often, the reason you take on a big creative project is because you want your life to change in some way. You may want to generate more revenue, sign more clients, find financing, get a promotion, or elevate your public profile.

Even if you are a strong writer and an expert in your field, when you take on a big creative project, often what happens is that your good ideas fight for space, you lose perspective, the material you know so well becomes hard to organize, and time starts to run out.... 

You might not finish the project, and it's unlikely to be your best work. 

As a coach, my role is to help you:

  • Get your ideas out of your head and into an organized structure
  • Use your time efficiently
  • Leverage what you already do well
  • Overcome fear, self-doubt, and paralysis
  • Do your best work - and get results
