During the course of your program, I provide answers to questions, advice, feedback on videos or recordings, edits on emails or reports, support in habit-changing strategies, accountability check-ins and overall support in reaching your goals. Your sessions can be divided how you would like: For example, you might schedule a 30-minute session before a presentation, a 60-minute session on a lighter work day, and another 30-minute session...

Executive communication coaching addresses any number of issues, including: improving leading and participating in meetings, presenting, 1:1 conversations with clients, co-workers or superiors; overall executive presence, dealing with nerves; addressing old stories, habits and habitual tensions that sabotage your communication and ability to connect; voice and vocal development; speech and dynamic speaking; writing of emails and reports, and the unique concerns and needs of the individual.
A program begins with either a consultation or a comprehensive evaluation, upon which a tailored program plan is created.
If your company is covering the cost, a copy will be sent to them, as well. No two programs are the same, as they are highly individualized and tailored.

LEVEL 1 (Non-Native English Speakers): Establish a strong foundation in the sounds and patterns of American English. Cultural style differences in communication may also be addressed.
