Welcome

We help people who are on a mission to make a difference in our world share their ideas with confidence, clarity and natural charisma. We’re so happy you’re here.

Public speaking is the ultimate leadership skill. When you want to build a career or business that makes a difference,  becoming adept at public speaking is the most powerful skill you can learn.

Great speakers get their ideas heard — and and people follow. Leaders who speak publicly attract clients, make more sales, and activate donors. They inspire their teams and light up their conference audiences. They step onto the TED stage and get standing ovations.

No matter your audience or professional goals, speaking publicly with excellence is the best way to grow and serve others.

MICHELLE HELPED BRING MY TALK TO LIFE

One might think that with years of public speaking under my belt, a coach wouldn’t make much impact – but boy did she.

Michelle helped me sharpen my talk’s focus, structure the flow of the story, and smooth out the rough parts.

Beyond her impacts as a speaking professional, she also was my #1 cheerleader, which was incredibly helpful. If you have an important message and you want it to be impactful and heard, you need Michelle.
