I have found working with Rebecca extremely helpful and I would highly recommend her as a coach to anyone looking to enhance their leadership presence, charisma, body language, voice, or communications. I have done only a few sessions with her so far, but I have already noticed a difference both in how the world sees me and how I see myself. Rebecca is extremely positive, supportive, constructive, and pleasant to work with and I look forward to doing more coaching sessions with her.
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.

Seriously people, if you are on this page, you probably need some support with your ability to speak effectively in front of a room. So you NEED to take this class!!! Lynn Kirkham's awesome program goes way beyond public speaking. It is unique in that it combines the mind/body/spirit to give you a new sense of self in front of a room. It will transform, inspire, and motivate you to new levels in all aspects of your life. Privately, Lynn can identify the root cause of why you shut down or go into fight, flight or freeze and assist you on letting it go so it no longer triggers you. She's warm and caring, and creates a very safe place for you to become your best self. I took this class after having taken other speaker trainings, and it made all the difference in being able to relax into my true voice.
Because I am going to Spain shortly, I wanted help with my conversational Spanish. Sylvia was just the ticket! She came to my house (on time) and provide me just what I needed and wanted. I find one of the key things one needs to develop one's conversation is something/someone you enjoy conversing with. Because Sylvia is such an interesting, well and broadly educated person, there was never any problem--except for the lesson ending too soon. It was both a pleasure and a great learning experience. I highly recommend her. AK
I worked with Leah on presentation techniques and corporate communication techniques this past year, which was super helpful and insightful for my career. Leah is very observant of behavior and enhances ones self awareness and quickly identifies areas to improve. I would highly recommend Leah for any executive/working professional seeking to find their own voice and style in the work place.
Kurtis does more than teach you comedy, he helps you find your inner voice.
Jodi's been inspirational in helping me to relax in my body such that Ive found a new voice with which to speak. She does great work in explaining breathe and how to make it work best for you. She knows how to effectively motivate students to improve as a whole. I cant say enough great things about Jodi, but best to see for yourselves.
Tom is an Excellent Coach. I was blessed to work with him in Chicago and now super exicited he's in the Bay so I can continue to grow with him. He taught me the skills to be myself while public speaking which is key for a genuine presentation. Thank you Tom for believing and me and bringing out my inner voice!!!!!
We attended an health accelerator in summer 2013. We were early stage, heading into our angel round and pitching the company to various audiences was crucial for us. Rock health helped us to some degree with it, but I felt we needed a professional coach with extensive industry experience to bring our presence to the next level. Rock health recommended Marla to us, and it turned out to be a true pleasure to work with her, both from a professional as well as a personal perspective. My main goal was to get feedback from someone "tough" and sophisticated in their understanding of presenting, as I had gone through several polishing sessions before. I met with her the first time and got all I needed, i.e. feedback on: -narrative -building suspense -highlighting what's essential -intonation -pausing -what will stick, what not -what will be exciting to an audience thus needs emphasis, time and pausing to sink in -body language -movement on stage -addressing the audience with eye contact/energy -reaching out to different audience types -segmenting the audience into different clusters to approach individually -practicing voice - video feedback for self assessment -humor/laughter ... and more. I'm still using this feedback everytime I go on stage today. So needless to say how highly I recommend her. Beyond help for the above, I also ask Marla for advice a lot re internal company communications, culture, HR, and beyond. So all in all, she's an outstanding and very thorough coach to work with, I can only recommend her on all layers! Thank you, Jan
Julia helped me develop not only my confidence and my ability to focus on large groups of people. I never had developed a strong speech pattern, and she broke down each individual lesson so not only could I have something to practice each week before our next meeting, but i could see the impact her lesson was having on me. She also was very responsive to any concerns I had noticed as over time I became more aware of my own voice and did her best to build my exercises around them. Julia is the only choice for both a professional and a receptive teacher that will take even the most novice and make them feel like they can address a stadium.
John is fun to work with- his training works! I sought John's help because I was suffering from hoarseness that dramatically compromised my everyday speaking. The hoarseness was partly due to an asthma medication I was using. John taught me methods to work with my tensions and limitations that gave me ease in using my voice. Ultimately I learned better coordination of my whole self enabling me to stop using the medication. John brings a remarkable depth of knowledge and practical experience to his teaching. It is a pleasure to work with him.
