Public Speaking Lessons

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!

Public Speaking Lessons

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.

I was given a new role at work which requires me to facilitate professional development courses so of course, I was beyond nervous because I despise public speaking. I enrolled in toastmasters but wanted something a bit more personal. I scoured thumbtack and came across Christy’s profile. I have never invested in my prof/personal development before so I thought why not, just go for it. From the first initial phone call, I knew Christy was the right trainer for me. It felt more like talking with a sister than with someone I’d just met. She allowed me to place my fears on the forefront while pushing me to where she knew I could be. She was patient, kind, personable and thorough in her feedback. Each time I spoke with her, she put me at ease. She told me what I needed to work on and worked thru it with me. I learned so much from her her in how to be engaging as a speaker and to ensure my presentations are always fluid so the audience can follow. I now feel more competent to stand and present information in an engaging and informative manner. I will definitely miss our sessions together but I look forward to continuously working with her in the future. If you are debating on hiring Christy, do yourself a favor and press play on those thoughts. You will not regret it. Christy is the best and I’m confident you will not find anyone better.

My experience was fantastic. Christy made feel a ease and comfortable. She was able to bring me out of my shell. I have always been afraid of public speaking since high school. I am confident I can stand in front of friends, family and strangers to do presentations with fear. Christy loves what she does and it shows. Thank you again, Christy. Job well job. Marchia Rhodes

Working with Christy was great for me and helped me enhance my public speaking skills. Before working with Christy, I was already speaking & presenting to groups of all sizes but the framework she provided, has helped to me truly engage with my audience. I would recommend Christy to anyone who is looking to further enhance their public speaking skill set or are new to public speaking.

Erin, thank you for the review! I enjoyed working with you. Thank you for allowing me to help you refine your presentation skills!
