Speechworks coach Kim Cunningham understands the importance of speaking with credibility.

For years, people relied on her weather forecasts to plan their days. And when she was in the Air Force, pilots relied on her to help plan their combat missions.

“Getting the forecast right is critical,” says Cunningham. “And delivering the message in a way that connects is also critical. You need both.”

Kim learned to connect and build confidence with audiences as a professional meteorologist.  For 25 years, she worked a meteorologist at The Weather Channel. She was on-air for 18 years. Before that, she predicted the weather for the Air Force. In the military she attained the rank of Staff Sargent and was once named “Airman of the Year”.  She was the first woman promoted to the Severe Weather section of the Air Force’s Global Weather Central.

“Kim has spent years connecting with audiences,” says Joey Asher, Speechworks President. “She is a true pro and is a wonderful coach.”

“Not only that,”  Asher adds, “Thanks to Kim, our coaches always know when to bring an umbrella to a workshop.”

In addition to her coaching role at Speechworks, Kim is an author and motivational speaker. She has been featured in numerous publications and asked to speak at events on a variety of topics, both personal and professional.
