Fantastic experience working with Christy! I avoided public speaking whenever I could and when I couldn’t it was often a mess. When I knew I couldn’t avoid speaking publicly any longer, I hired Christy. After working with her for 8 weeks there was a noticeable difference in my presentation skills. I even received feedback that I was a great presenter. Would definitely recommend.

Christy is a phenomenal speaking coach and leader! After careful consideration, I selected Christy’s services for my professional speaking development, and it was a great decision. Christy is very professional as she gives constructive feedback and advice that produces positive results. Also, Christy’s model for crafting a speech and delivery is invaluable. I highly recommend Christy for those who seek to develop in the area of professional/public speaking- you will not be disappointed!

During my consultation with Christy, I mentioned my weaknesses and concerns about public speaking. I had never been a strong speaker and speaking in front of others gave me anxiety. As we worked together in her program, Christy taught me the techniques needed to successfully speak in public. I enjoyed her style of teaching and appreciated her honest feedback after each and every speech. At the end of the coarse, I noticed a huge difference in my confidence, and I was able to speak more comfortably and with authority. Looking at my before and after presentations was evidence enough that I had improved drastically. I one hundred percent recommend Christy as a coach. Her teaching style is very organized, fun, and effective.

If you have issues with public speaking due to a more introverted nature or anxiety then I highly recommend working with Christy. She was incredibly understanding of my initial hesitation and helped me work through the mental blocks. I finished our four weeks actually feeling confident in my ability to give a public presentation and now have the tools moving forward to continue my improvement! Absolute 5 star service.
