Discover the art, science, and alchemy of public speaking and communication

Work With Me

I am driven to help people develop the communication skills crucial to their professional lives. 

Public speaking, one-on-one communication, persuasiveness, conversation, presentations – these are a few of the critical skills I teach professionals and businesspeople.  By tackling communication skills from all angles, I will help you become an engaging, sensitive, and tactical speaker whether you are addressing an auditorium full of people or having a one-on-one meeting.  High-impact, high-value, immediately actionable lessons and strategies are a hallmark of my services.

I work with people in the Edmonton, Alberta region and beyond.  In-person and distance/online services are available.

Here is how you can work with me:

One-on-one coaching gives you the opportunity to improve your presentation, speaking, and communication skills in the most direct manner.  Each session is a minimum of one hour in length and is tailored specifically for your individual needs and circumstances.  One-on-one coaching may be done in person or through Skype or FaceTime.

Workshops give you an intensive burst of skill development, letting you hone a particular presentation or technique over the course of just a few days.  Classes provide an extensive, in-depth learning experience that builds key skills over a longer period of time.  Limited to between 8 and 10 people, I will work with you and your fellow participants in an intimate setting that encourages fast learning, active skill growth, personalized coaching, and valuable peer feedback.

Do you need to figure out a way to create a more effective communication culture in your business?  Does your team need to power up their presentations or develop a consistent way of communicating with clients? Maybe there is a specific situation coming your way, such as a site visit, and you need help working out a strategy to deal with it.  By thoroughly investigating your particular circumstances and developing a detailed action plan, I can help you sort out difficult situations related to workplace communication.

Your presentation - whether it is for a large audience or a small group, delivered in-person or in an online webinar - needs to stand out and grab your audience.  I can help you create a presentation that will engage your audience and make them want to work with you more.  I work with you to focus your ideas and concepts in outstanding presentations that combine superb spoken material and engaging slides that support your words rather than overpower them. Whether you need to create a new presentation from scratch or freshen up an existing one, I can help you make the sort of impact you need.  Presentation design services are available in-person or online.

Corporate workshops are ideal for companies who want to boost their team’s presentation and communication skills or to prepare teams for specific upcoming presentations.  Delivered in-person, workshops may vary in length. The suitable length and structure of your workshop will be determined during an initial needs assessment. Examples of workshop timelines include a series of half-days spread out over several weeks, a one-day group blitz, or full three-day workshops.

Policies

Refunds: 

Deposits for group classes are non-refundable, and full payment is due the week before the first class. Because space in my classes and workshops are limited, I may have turned away other people who wanted to register.  For this reason, the full class fee is non-refundable as of the week before class starts.

Coaching, custom/corporate workshop packages, as well as other specialty writing and design services, are non-refundable. I need to be sure that I dedicate enough time to serving you and your needs, which could mean that I had to turn away other clients!

Cancellations:

Do you need to reschedule your time with me?  As long as you give me 24 hours notice, there is no fee to reschedule your appointment.

For no-shows and cancellations with less than 24 hours notice (whether the appointment was in-person, online, or over the phone), your scheduled time will be deducted hour-for-hour from your coaching or service package. If you are working with me on an hourly basis, the fee for the originally scheduled time will be applied.

Late arrivals:

Your time is precious, as is mine! I pledge to start and end our sessions at their scheduled time.  If you need to be late for our appointment, I will still have to end it at it's originally scheduled time.
