When clients live close by, the Speech Coaching takes place on site.

When clients are not located nearby, distance learning works well, through Skype, video, phone sessions, and other methods. Currently I am working productively with a client based in Detroit.

Check my Speech Coaching page, to read more about my coaching and to see what clients are saying about how my services have benefited them:

And to hear even more guidelines for becoming a champion speaker, order my audio CD, “How to Speak with Poise, Power, and Persuasion,” available from my online shopping cart. Scroll down the product list until you locate this CD under its original title, “How to Become a Dynamic Speaker!”
