Introduction: A genuine, fun, and relaxed approach is the foundation of That Presentation Coach's philosophy: I want clients to be the best version of themselves, not anyone else. No two people have the same needs, bodies, or voices, so I will work with you to reach your goals and to get in touch with your natural, authentic public self. Presence. Confidence. Authenticity. That Presentation Coach, LLC offers services that aim to foster these three qualities in our clients, and I believe that this combination can help you be more successful, both professionally and personally. Having assisted hundreds of people to improve their public speaking and presentation skills, confidence, and resumes over the years, I know how to get results and put you at ease. I have a decade of professional experience working with others to help them reach their public speaking, professional, and personal goals. While completing my Ph.D. in Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Maryland, I taught my department’s general education course in oral communication, “The Art of Communication and Presentation,” as well as beginning my private consulting practice. I've taught and coached hundreds of people of all ages and from fields as varied as business, academia, the sciences, information technology, medicine, and the humanities. In that time I also helped those students/clients tap into their self-confidence and identify personal and professional goals, and provided job search help and skills (mock interviews, help writing resumes and cover letters, job hunting tips and techniques, etc). No matter what your background or public speaking experience is, I can help. Get in touch today. I can't wait to see you reach your goals!

Sara has a unique approach that is especially tailored toward women and it was so helpful for me. Sara taught me that much of being a great speaker is developing confidence, and I love the way she went about incorporating this! Her expertise is public speaking, but I worked with her over 5 1-hour session to become a better speaker at work, in stressful or confrontational settings. The lessons were personally crafted for my specific situation. Sara is friendly, kind, and easy to work with. I'd recommend for anyone looking for help with public speaking, interviewing, or just sounding more collected in day-too-day life!

I worked with Sara to improve my presentation skills and confidence to speak during meetings. During our sessions she gave me the tools to effectively communicate and prepare for meetings. Having her critique and provide exercises made a difference in my presentation style and my team noticed my improvements too! I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again if I have a presentation to prepare for.

Sara conducted a training for 60 of our managers, on the topic Nonverbal Communication in the Virtual Space. I told Sara that these managers were not new to virtual meetings and they should be trained on intermediate skills. Sara delivered and the managers clearly enjoyed the training and reported that their virtual meeting skills improved. Sara's professionalism, approachability, and humor made this a very successful training and she made me look good for hiring her.

English is my second language, but I have a passion for public speaking. I like to write my own speeches but I am never happy with it, because of the language barrier. Dr. Thompson is an amazing instructor. She improved my writing and speaking. She is very patient and always made sure I delivered my speeches with correct pronunciation and accents. She puts all her effort into supporting me in my public speaking. I am very happy with the results! I am happy to say that Dr. Thompson is a wonderful public speaking coach. Highly recommended.
