Thank you Liz! Your course has a lot of layers and some of them are deeper and more vulnerable than expected. I appreciate how kindly you handle people’s fears.

Yes, you can own the room.

I help women feel confident about public speaking and have more presence and impact. Using embodiment and performance techniques that suit your needs, you can move through nerves and smash it when it matters. 

Real lasting change takes time, dedication and practice.  We can build your speaking confidence and presence over several sessions. 

However, if you really need some last-minute help to get you feeling ready for a specific presentation that is coming up,  I’ve got your back!
