Wondering how to find a good Public Speaking Coach?

As one of a few Public Speaking Coaches in Bend Oregon (and across the U.S.), I know you have choices and you should! Just like there are no two Speakers alike, there are no two Public Speaking Coaches alike. We all have our strengths. For example I have a Speaking Coach friend who has no interest in helping people overcome fear of public speaking, so she refers those people to me because of my expertise.

Step 1: Get clear on your needs. What speaking style do you need? Do you need a killer slide deck? What outcome do you want to create? etc.

When it comes to content creation and delivery, sometimes the coaching process can get very personal (in a good way). The best Speaking Coaches will challenge you to dig deep and guide you to make an authentic yet powerful presentation. I mention this because you will want to be comfortable with the person who is going to push you out of your comfort zone.

Step 2: Have a conversation with Speaking Coaches you are interested in. Talking with different coaches will give you the snapshot you need to make an informed decision.

When I talk with people on the phone, we talk about where you are, where you’d like to be, and I’ll let you know the steps to getting there. We’ll talk and see if we are a good match. If we are not a good match, I will make recommendations to help you along your way!
