Public Speaking

What do you want to speak in public (anytime you’re not talking to yourself) with confidence, focus, and ease?

  • Dismantle barriers to speak effectively from your inner knowing
  • View the process of communicating as a daring adventure that can even be fun
  • Develop a personalized, enjoyable speaking style

Public speaking is an everyday occurrence that has tremendous impact on your relationships, livelihood and self-esteem. It takes time to develop excellent skills, but there are immediate steps you can implement each day to diminish anxiety and increase your influence.

As a member of Toastmasters International, a world leader in communication and leadership development, I assist new and experienced members to improve their speaking and leadership skills in both English and Spanish. I am recognized as an inspiring leader, speaker, and mentor in the Rise and Shine Club and the Spanish Bilingual SF Club.

Coaching can be for a one time speech, presentation, writer’s reading, or upcoming interview. I can also work with you to improve your speaking skills over a longer term with specific goals based on your skills and impetus.

Testimonials

Linda was a tremendous support to me as I worked toward building public speaking skills.  She offered thoughtful feedback on my written speeches, as well as encouraged a brave delivery.  Her sensitivity to public issues raised my awareness and I was able to integrate a larger perspective into my messages.  My skills and confidence improved quickly and dramatically as a result of our work together.  I recommend Linda to anyone who is serious and ready to achieve their dreams.
