our mission

We work with clients to bring out their very best public persona:- whether you are making a speech, appearing on camera, producing videos or podcasts, giving presentations or lectures, or simply wanting to be a more confident story-teller. We tailor the coaching to the client's individual needs: writing, storytelling, speaking, body-language, thought-organization, self-confidence, video-production, use of voice, audio-production, social media writing and/or marketing, or blogging. I launched my own training and consulting business after a long career in both international and local journalism, with BBC News as a World News Producer, and NPR station affiliates as a senior manager in New York and Washington, D.C.

We work with business entrepreneurs, commercial and non-profit organizations, professionals and students. We use positive re-enforcement, video playback and appraisal, and real-time practice to get the best from every person or organization with a story to tell. Contact me for an individual 1-hour consultation, where we'll make a strategic plan for success in your venture or project.($150)
