When I met Amy I had already delivered 200 keynote addresses on six continents, and I had been the recipient of positive teaching evaluations over thousands of university lectures, so I felt relatively well-versed in the art and science of speaking. Moments into our first conversation, however, I realized how much there was to learn, and how crucial the "little things" were in public speaking, and that Amy was exactly what I had needed all along. I gravitated to her helpful teaching style immediately, and I could not believe how much my presentation skills improved - and quickly! She took a pacing, rambling, academic talker and turned me into someone who was capable of delivering a captivating TED talk. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to have met and worked closely with the very best.

The Zen Speaker Plus: Beyond the Basics

istock_000005299702xsmallYou’ve taken The Zen Speaker course. You no longer begin your speeches with pleasantries. You incorporate stories into all your communications. You remember to make it about the audience. You are more relaxed when you speak than you were before the course. You remember to use the “hissing” breathing exercise.

If you agreed with the above statements, you are ready to go Beyond the Basics! Even if you didn’t agree, we’ll do a review of the basics and then go zooming beyond them!

Robert ElliottI felt stuck in boring introductions that had no punch, were predictable and not very meaningful, and often I couldn’t remember what I had said afterwards. I was nervous and so often unprepared. By using the techniques I learned in Amy’s public speaking coaching group, I now know the joy of practicing what I am going to say, no matter how long or short the speaking will be; the power of using “you” to bring the audience into whatever I am saying; and the benefit of the “stress reducing” breathing exercises. These techniques have given me power over fear and anxiety in public speaking.
