Speaker Coaching

You are a busy professional:

  • You have presented to clients or spoken in a conference or workshop and want to fine tune your public speaking skills. 
  • You have a big presentation or interview coming up and need to perfect it.  
  • You speak frequently at professional events but have never seen yourself in action. 
  • You have now transitioned to online meetings and presentations, and find yourself needing to adjust.

Speaker Coaching is an effective way to polish your presentation and communication skills with a coach who is trusted by all levels of government, business and the media including prominent political figures and broadcasters. You can build the confidence and skills you need for professional and personal success.

How Speaker Coaching Works

Speaker Coaching is available in person and online via a platform of your preference with Ms. Verdun as a 90-minute session.  Dr. Miller offers a one-hour online consultation via your preferred platform. 

Prior to your initial session, you will be sent two questionnaires to complete so that your training goals are understood. During the consultation, you are videotaped during a five minute presentation, interview or challenging conversation. You can send links to recent presentations if you prefer.  Your strengths and weaknesses are immediately discussed and modifications are suggested and practiced during this intial consultation. Dr. Miller will provide a written analysis of your consultation including a secure link to your video within 24 hours. If you would prefer more extensive analysis with access to training videos and handouts, you may enroll in the Video-Coaching Program outlined below. The online program provided to you via a secure username and password includes analysis of your video in six core areas. Regardless of the training you desire, follow-up sessions may be recommended. During follow-up training, weekly communication is encouraged so that your progress can be monitored. Prepare to be transformed.

Video-Coaching Program

This custom-designed Video-Coaching Progam is developed following your one-hour session with Dr. Miller. The program will be sent to you online via a secure username and password. Transformation begins to occur when you view yourself in action, confirm what you saw in the Analysis section, and access your Action Plan accompanied by practical worksheets and training videos. Learn more about the Video-Coaching Progam with Dr. Miller below. 

 

Step 1 - Your Video

A portion of your recorded video presentation or conversation is uploaded for analysis. You may also send three to five minutes of a previouly recorded presentation to be uploaded and analyzed.

Step 2 - Analysis

Your presentation, interview or conversation is  evaluated based on six core competencies: professional presence, vocal tone, breath control, diction, message, and delivery. Feedback about what you do well and what you could better is provided in very clear, practical language.

 

Step 3 - Action Plan

Your personalized training program provides concrete steps and assignments to strengthen your weak areas and magnify what you do well. Your plan includes downloadable worksheets chosen from Voicetrainer LLC's extensive library of written training materials.

Step 4 - Training Videos

Individually selected videos augment your action plan. These training videos have been developed to help speakers master their goals quickly. Videos range from knock out presentations, to designing and delivering your elevator speech, to jaw and breathing exercises with and without speech.
