How presentation coaching works

In one-on-one working sessions, you’ll rehearse and finesse your next presentation or speech. Our goal? A presentation delivered with a clear call to action and a message that your audience remembers long after they walk out the door. 

Whether the audience is one client, a small group or a packed auditorium, you’ll build on your natural skills to create a presentation delivered with clarity and ease. You’ll learn to:

  • write for the spoken voice
  • communicate with images
  • add appropriate drama
  • foster your own sense of calm

For technical experts presenting to a lay audience, you’ll learn to create presentations in understandable language that doesn’t “dumb down” the concepts.

I've worked with a diversity of clients, from introverted professors making the move from teaching to speech-making, to marketing V.P.’s preparing for a high-stakes presentation, to visual artists unaccustomed to talking about their work, to teams in corporate America needing to communicate with grace and authority.

For organizations, I teach these skills in customized, hands-on workshops.

Do you have a presentation looming that you’d like to deliver with confidence and ease? Email me  to schedule a time to talk about how we can work together.

Gigi observed me teaching at Portland State University, then we met for feedback. She gave multi-faceted observations and recommendations on content, body language, using tools (PowerPoint/whiteboards), storytelling. Since our coaching session her feedback on my storytelling is having a positive impact not only on my teaching but my daily interactions and even writing.

In just one hour of coaching with Gigi, I was well-informed about how to prepare physically, emotionally, and logistically for a successful presentation. Her supportive and insightful feedback about my style gave me clarity about my opportunities for improvement and confidence about my capacity to connect with an audience.
