Story & Public Speaking Coaching
Share your message with presence and power
My story and/or public speaking coaching focuses on both crafting a strong message and delivering it with power. This is for folks who find themselves sharing their stories publicly are already speaking in one form or another – presentations for work, conferences, performance storytelling, etc.
Specifically, story coaching focuses on exploration of your personal narratives, crafting messages for different audiences, and building a toolbox that allows you to build countless stories based on your personal experiences. This work goes beyond simple 'communication coaching' to help reveal the narrative threads that have woven their way through your life, often without your conscious awareness.
Public speaking coaching focuses more explicitly on delivering your message. Depending on your needs, we explore basic strategies derived from mindfulness practice, theater, neurolinguistic programming and more to help you understand the root causes of anxiety, find a deep connection with self and audience, and move through fear before and during presentations.
If you are a seasoned speaker or interested in exploring your personal narrative, we may focus more on helping you connect powerfully by exploring different structures, storytelling, aspects of your narrative, and interactive elements.
Important note: Because this is focused on coaching as opposed to training, you'll need to be working on a concrete speech, presentation, or project for it to be most effective. If you're looking for training, let me know and I can connect you with some great resources!
