    Irene Brennick has a natural ability to speak poignantly to any type of audience on a variety of topics. I have seen her in action and have observed her quickly engage an audience and retain their interest. Her flexibility in speaking style and experience in having spoken to tens of thousands of people speaks to her quality of skill and effectiveness. Ms. Brennick has shared her secrets on how anyone can learn to speak in front of an audience with ease. Her book, Bring Your Audience to Their Feet, is a pleasant and quick read full of practical applications. Like Irene’s speeches, her book is engaging and leaves the reader with a direct road map to feeling comfortable to deliver a speech and to communicate more effectively in general. Her talents as a professional speaker and author are as likable, enticing and enjoyable as they are informative and sensible. Mary Woods Marketing and Business Consulting Executive

    Great Speaker! Confident and fun, making excellent contact with the audience on a personal level.

    Irene's focused yet warm-hearted style gets to the point in an entertaining, informative manner. One can't help but pay attention, become informed, and therefore, take action. I met her many years ago when we both worked on a video series. Many clients had only vague ideas of what they wanted. Irene was very clear yet also open to discussion. I've never forgotten her.

    Irene is a force! She is an amazing speaker with depth, wisdom and relatability!


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Not really. I usually find out what a group's budget is and work within that.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First I get to know them and find out what their goals are. Next, I teach techniques based on my book "Bring Your Audience to Their Feet".
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a former Dale Carnegie award winning speaker and was also a Campaigner for the United Way of Los Angeles putting on presentations to small and large groups. I have spoken to tens of thousands of people and continue to speak today as a director of over 700 hospital volunteers.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Actually, a former welfare mom who graduated college in 1994 with honors, I was featured on tv and in print. People loved my story of overcoming adversity so I began sharing it as a United Way campaigner and featured speaker at many events.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with church groups, authors who need to promote their book, hospital directors, business executive, non profits and individuals. I have also taught a speaking class at Ventura College.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I just taught a student from Thailand who did not speak great English and was extremely shy and intimidated. She read my book 3 times and I coached her just once. She just passed her speech class and got an A!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure they are great speakers themselves and are not just teaching basic techniques. I teach more about the emotional side of speaking and how to read and engage an audience and also give a presentation they will never forget.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
They should think about what their ultimate goal is and how much money they want to spend. The cheapest person is not always the best and they should only work with someone who has a "passion" themselves for public speaking.
