I'M SPEAKING NOW
You have a communication conundrum.
Perhaps you need to have a difficult conversation with a colleague or a family member and have no idea how to approach the matter. The language we use, along with tone and timing, are all important tools in relaying a message.
In our session, I'll lead you away from ineffective modes of messaging such as tense texting marathons or passive aggressive emails and into more direct solutions-driven exchanges.
If you need a session to review some poor communication habits you've observed about yourself, we can address those and devise a plan to phase out self-sabotaging behaviors that hinder clarity in your verbal and written messaging.
Whether it's a keynote or an award acceptance speech, there's no need to go it alone. Not only will I draft your speech but I will coach you in the delivery of it as well so that your audience will extract optimal meaning and influence from your words.
Eulogies, wedding/celebratory occasions, and education-centered addresses are offered as well. I also can work with middle- and high school-aged students at a 20% discounted rate.
INTERVIEW OR MODERATOR PREPARATION
I'll work with you to effortlessly present yourself as an asset to the most discerning of hiring teams. Maybe you are in the market for a new job as a seasoned industry professional or as a person changing careers or re-entering the market after a hiatus. Nevertheless, our one-on-one telephone or video-conferencing mock interview and my research of your industry's current demands will give you the edge over other applicants. If you are moderating a panel, I'll prepare you to deal with diffusing conflict, steering panelists toward closure, and mastering your introductory and conclusive tones. Your audience and panelists will be in the palm of your hand. For press interview prep, I will help you anticipate certain questions, convey crystal clear answers, and promote your products/initiatives.
AYESHA, I LIKE YOUR APPROACH.
