“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

– John Quincy Adams

I’ve spent more than a decade at Speechworks helping to develop leaders who are confident, persuasive communicators! My years as an account executive, sales trainer, and speechwriter for executives taught me that relationships win the business, and relationships are about connection. So when I coach my clients, I help them share their most engaging personality traits with their listeners: whether it’s a great sense of humor, a winning smile, or a captivating voice. Then I find fun ways to challenge them to be better – to add pauses, to hold eye contact longer, or to show more passion!
