Laura digs down into the root of the problem by exploring triggers and the resultant negative thoughts that drove me to believe my voice didn't matter. She did this by sharing her own story which helped me to trust her with my own and conducted a physical simulation of speaking scenarios to help identify triggers. Afterwards, wait. I can't share more without giving away her technique. But what you can see is she isn't just a Public Speaking coach. She's also a counselor who helped me to understand the whys, steps to move towards my goal, and lessons in faith. And this was all in one session. I plan to continue my sessions and will provide an update later to give a final assessment. I don't believe anyone trying Laura will be disappointed. I got more than money can buy.
I've only worked with Tom at Verho for three weeks and I have never been clearer about how to address and audience. He is very easy to work with and his knowledge of public speaking has given me the confidence that I thought I could never gain. Without his help I would never have stepped out into the world of marketing that I needed to in order to achieve my goals.
Tara Anastasi is a joy to work with. Her attention to detail, dedication, and ability to juggle multiple projects is amazing. Her training and coaching has improved my performance and helped me grow as a person. Highly recommended as a team member, collaborator, supervisor, or coach.
I met Chris about four years ago when I had just retired from the military after 23 years of service and I was in the foundation stage of starting my concierge business. Chris took me under his wings and provided top-notch strategic planning services and conducted a throughal personality assessment test that supported the industry I was going into and that led me to become a successful business owner during my transition from military to civilian life. Since our meeting I have become Regroup Partner/Consult in Jeans number one fan. Due to Chris leadership and mentorship within my own business I have shifted operations within my business and now serve authors, coaches, and speakers. Each of these markets is exactly what Chris do very well, his inspiration has become a pillar that holds up the structure of me moving forward as a world-class business owner and leader in the community. Thank you Chris for your stead-fast devotion to your clients and delivering powerful messages through your authorship, coaching, and speaking engagements.
Dr. Lynne Long – President, Long View Associates - “I was with Ed when he started PowerCommunicators in 2003, teaching its content and delivery to teachers in Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, Newark, NJ, Philadelphia, PA, and numerous other East Coast cities. These teachers then taught the program to hundreds of K-12 students regionally. Based on the overwhelming success of these efforts, Ed added public speaking instruction for adults in community colleges, corporate environments, and one-on-one coaching. Ed’s coaching team is first rate!”
I met Sandy four years ago. Through running and knowing some of the same people, Sandy and I talked about running and I began following her blog. It is easy to see that Sandy is a special person in many ways. She takes the time to listen, understand, and you can feel her positive energy. When I made the decision to train for my first Marathon, I was overrun with fear. So much so that I skipped my initial training. I confided in Sandy and she helped motivate me to push thru my fear and thru that and her cheering me on I did get to training, I did complete that Marathon and some of that glory goes to her for her support. Sandy is made of grace and of grit. She completed and finished a 100 mile ultra race. So not everyone will run. Maybe it is a new career path, maybe a life changing course you are on...a fork in the road, weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Sandy knows what it takes to be fit, to make some tough decisions and go on. Even when its not all smooth sailing. I would highly recommend her. After all, anyone who has the stick to it ness to give her all in running and in life has my vote.
Emily provided a great one day training on tips and pointers on how to be a more effective public speaker. Her teaching style is very interaction and engaging, which worked wonderfully for our organization.
Jennifer was wonderful in helping me with some social anxiety and public speaking issues I was having. I really enjoyed her style of coaching and felt comfortable like I was talking to a friend that was helping me at the same time. She coaches like a professional, but also made it fun and enjoyable for me.
Working with Thavma was a wonderful theatrical experience. I had the good fortune to create several characters in a series of original plays written by Thavma. She also directed and produced the project. Her professional nurture and guidance in every aspect of the project was exceptional and impressive. The production might have been even better with more face to face rehearsal, however given the limitations on budget and time the quality of the cast and the work was excellent.
