Presentation skills coaching for individuals

Organize your thoughts, control your nervousness, and present with confidence

Good presentation skills can enhance your credibility and position you for career advancement

Turning down speaking opportunities because you’re not sure what to do or you feel nervous about speaking? Worried that you’re overwhelming your audience with too much information?

Brenda works with individuals who would like to:

  • Represent their company well if asked to present to peer groups or at industry events
  • Be seen as a potential leader, to get promotion opportunities, and good/interesting projects – to become more valuable to the company
  • Appear competent, as someone who is “good at this”
  • Get help controlling nerves and feeling more confident about presenting
  • Learn how to structure their content and create an interesting and informative presentation

Over multiple sessions, Brenda helped me to prepare for an hour long talk in front of an audience of professionals in Vancouver.

By working with Brenda, I was able to create a structure for my talk and come up with relatable stories to share.

Brenda’s well thought out strategy gave me the confidence I needed to make my talk as effective, entertaining and memorable as possible.

I look forward to working with Brenda again!

Brenda was fantastic – her helpful suggestions paid off

Brenda recently gave me feedback on a fairly important talk I was about to deliver in the US. One of the advantages of working with a professional (and a former lawyer, and specifically Brenda) is that you know that you’re going to get straight-forward feedback. She was fantastic – pointed to what I needed to keep doing and made helpful recommendations, all of which I followed. One of them meant moving content to my opening (not a small change so close to the event), and it was 100% right. I knew I could trust her and doing so paid off in getting closer to my audience faster.
