Speaker and Presentation Coaching

Get Ready To Change The World With Your Ideas.

You are presenting all day long. Every time you share an idea, you’re presenting. From the boardroom to the webroom to the kitchen table – you are presenting. If you want to have impact (change the world or your part of it) you need to get your idea across to your audience. Most importantly you need to connect in a way that changes your audience. To change the world you need to change your audience so much they are ready to take action.

If you’re not having the impact you expected from your conversations and presentations, you need to consider the presentationYOU approach.

Who’s it for? Speakers | Presenters | Consultants | You

Created to help professionals like you become masters at conversations and presentations, the presentationYOU approach uses conversation elements, design elements, storytelling elements and more. The heart of the approach is my resolution to help you:

Design the experience,
not the presentation.

PresentationYOU Coaching Program

Learning is a process, not an event. I’m passionate about helping you take your speaking and presentation skills to the next level. Because I’ve been coaching entrepreneurs, scientists, and leaders for more than 15 years, I know I can help on this very skill. My experience has shown me the only way to create sustainable behavioral change is through a learning process conducted over time. Coaching provides a personalized experience for you to learn and grow your communication skills.

PresentationYOU coaching will help you dig deeper and climb higher by building upon your strengths. You have an important message. It’s true – this idea of yours, the context of your message, and your audience -are all unique.

As your executive coach, I work with you to identify your specific presentation needs and custom design a program to optimize your strengths. With your strengths and my experience together we can develop a Presentation with Impact and you become an expert presenter.

Phase 1: Prep and Discovery

The foundation for developing mastery level communication and presentation skills begins with a commitment to preparation. In this phase we start with YOU. A full assessment of you, the audience, the desired outcome, and the context within which the encounter will take place. We gather the necessary data and begin the creative process. We map out the approach and uncover the obstacles. The focus is on creating order from chaos and build the case for effective results.

Phase 2: Develop and Design

With a solid foundation we now develop and expand your message to include the appropriate level of detail, incorporate storytelling elements and refine the flow. We design and refine to include the appropriate visual elements and activities to engage your audience. Ruthless editing is a specialty of the presentationYOU approach and will bring your presentation to the next level of professionalism. The focus in this phase is on crafting the message for impact.

Phase 3: Deliver and Inspire

All preparation and design come together and are delivered through YOU. We come back around to YOU again in this phase using selected techniques to help you build your presence and confidence. Care is taken to select the appropriate delivery method for the situation. Several cycles of practice and feedback are an essential part of the delivery phase. The focus in this phase is on delivering with authenticity for a memorable talk.

Linda is …an invaluable thought partner to me, she challenges me, has helped me think through ideas, see new perspectives and maximize possibilities…to communicate my messages both large and small—and in some very cool ways (both technology and style).  The impact is sustained – those thought-provoking questions resonate beyond the immediate topic we’re focused on and become the base of a repeatable process.
