The best way I can describe Liz Hodge is as my “Go-To” for overcoming my biggest vocal challenges, writing compelling business speeches that sound like they should be on TED, and making a difference for my leadership team. As the CEO of Promote Her Business, my business speeches and vocal communication significantly affect my ability to get leads, opt-ins, and to have people want to follow-up with our membership and advanced networking programs. Liz has helped me transform my voice into something I like to hear, am proud of, and have confidence will bring me and PHB more business. In addition, as President of our SV Chapter, I take very seriously who educates my leadership team -- of over 10 people -- on the best practices in speaking and vocalizing today. Liz did such a great job giving a mini group workshop to the women entrepreneurs and male allies on our team. And most impressively, Liz’ teaching is so practical that it lives on … my leaders are still referring to what Liz taught us before they speak in front of the community. Josephine “Jos” Hanan, Founder/CEO, Promote Her Business
If you are looking for a Public Speaking Coach, I utterly recommend Roy! I had a chance to attend his workshop for public speaking, and I had a great and fun time. Roy is confident, well prepared, and very skillful in public speaking. Usually, workshop can be boring, but Roy's positiveness and friendliness bring energy and fun the whole time! Roy has a big and genuine heart for people who are discouraged or unconfident in public speaking. Roy hopes that everyone who attends his workshop leaves with a big confidence and hope because he believes that everyone can do public speaking. If you have questions or concerns in public speaking, do not hesitated to ask Roy. He is a kind and friendly coach you will experience.
Omg Pastor Ama was absolutely amazing!!! We had a small ceremony in the Chapel of Our Lady in Presidio and she performed such a beautiful ceremony. From the moment she got there till the end of the ceremony she handled everything perfectly and made sure our Wedding went as smooth as possible. A wedding day is something you will remember forever and the memory she has given my fiancé and I as well as our families will definitely be unforgettable. If you need someone who will take the time out to understand you, accommodate to your dreams of your wedding day and speak so beautifully then she’s the one to go to!!! I’m so grateful to have found her because I can’t say enough how wonderful she made our special day! And she throws in a few laughs too that makes you feel even more better especially when all the nerves are kicking in as you stand up in front of everyone. Thank you again Pastor Ama for all you kind words, the laughs, and creating a memorable day that captured all my dreams! :)
I have had the privilege of working with Summer Simonton for many years and have always known her to be extremely proficient at processing people. She is able to guide you to break through your blocks to public speaking or whatever issue you are dealing with. I have known few coaches that have her ability to process people through any given situation. I highly recommend that you give yourself the gift of working with Summer! Paula Joy MacNab
There's no doubt that Linda is an excellent English teacher. She's very flexible and adjusts the lessons to your special needs and wishes. She knows exactly how to personalize the lesson in order for you to improve quickly. She's flexible, dedicated and passionate. She doesn't only provide efficient English courses, but also makes them funny, entertaining and very engaging. As an individual, Linda is very attentive, smart and friendly. She's always very helpful and provides you with good advices if you are new in town. She loves teaching and that increases the quality of the service she provides and the relationship she develops with her students. I consider myself lucky for having met Linda. I've improved my pronunciation skills in a short time and greatly increased my self-confidence and speaking skills. I would fully recommend her to anyone who wants to learn English in a stimulating and exciting way.
I signed up with Coach Tarek after attending one of his seminars Pathway to Maturity. I had some challenges at home and work and Tarek worked with me to understand me and where I am coming from. He then helped me see things in a fresh light, helped me improve my body language and voice. Through a series of exercises he helped me understand my core, find my purpose to my life and where my interests lay. I would highly recommend him as a personal coach.
My daughter had a great time working with Melissa. Here is her review: Melissa was so helpful. She helped me gain confidence speaking at my state and national conferences and she helped me with my interview skills. She has great strategies to improve public speaking skills. For interview skills we would role play and practice questions. She came prepared with questions specific to my field, and it was always fun to work with her. Melissa always on time and prepared to work with me. If I had to review my public speaking or interview skills I would definitely work with Melissa again.

Working with Angela has been a very constructive experience. She's a visionary, with the perfect blend of knowledge and presentation skills. This makes her a versatile trainer and a talented Speaker, who loves to engage her audience with real life scenarios and examples making sure her message is loud and clear. Ive always seen her take pains to respond to questions, even if she needs to research and then email her response, ensuring no attendee is left without a complete answer. She is an Ideal Educator ! She is well versed in the areas of Project Management, Computer System Validation, 21 CFR and the general regulatory arena. Personally, Ms. Bazigos is also an extremely hardworking, dedicated and smart professional.
Thank you Caterina Rando for all that you have done to bring hope to me when I was ready to cash in my dream. I had worked with so many coaches and was at a really low point when I met Caterina. I loved her weekend - tons of value and I was an insta yes. In less than two short years my business, my attitude, and my life has turned around. So grateful!!! www.DrBeth.com
"Through working with Jason, I slowly became comfortable with several aspects of dating that I had always been aware of but wasn't really comfortably talking about. The more time we spent together, the more open I became in my thinking and in my conversation. Now, I'm wondering what was so hard about it all. My change happened gradually in large part, I think, because Jason had a plan in mind, and he executed it masterfully. He is patient, never pushed me too hard and had no problem re-focusing our conversation if need me. He is wise beyond his years."

Every moment we are communicating in some way shape or form, either with ourself or with others. The breakdown in communication is where problems arise. What would your life look like if others understood you? Really truly heard you? What would your world be like if you could understand what others needed from you? As an executive communication coach I teach people to bridge the gap between what we say and what others hear. I also help people understand how to adjust to the language of others and truly understand what their own message to the world actually sounds and feels like.

Whether you are an actor or public speaker seeking more confidence, ease, and feel more grounded in your performance contact me for a quote.
