Private coaching for public speaking & communication


In addition to co-founding the Storytelling Programs at The Second City Training Center and Chicago Dramatists, I work with people privately to develop their talks and presentations. I have privately coached TED Talkers, Moth Grand Slam winners, ministers, doctors, attorneys, tech innovators, heads of schools, political organizers, performing artists, and many others who want to communicate powerfully in public. My coaching fosters relaxed, confident, playful and genuine presence. I help people overcome public speaking and communication anxiety to enthrall an audience, deepen connection, foster laughter and curiosity, and inspire change. A strength of mine is helping people discover and articulate the central truth they wish to convey. 


Last year, at client request, my practice expanded to include communication coaching for people with areas of particular difficulty or high-stakes in interpersonal communication. Right now, I am helping surgeons, teachers, facilitators, social workers, and others whose work depends upon clear communication, listening, and trust.  In this work, we uncover the source of difficulty, align with your desires, model effective options, and role-play. 


Private coaching begins with a no-cost 20-30 minute phone consultation, where I learn about your goals, and your areas of challenge and desired growth. I can then share about the way I work and how I can support you, and answer any questions. If things feel like a fit, we'll set up a number of meetings that suit your project-size, time frame and budget.
