Going into taking this course I didn't know exactly what to expect, but soon found out how amazing public speaking can be. Rita has allowed me to unlock my full potential and understand my strengths and weaknesses. She has been helpful in every way imaginable and continues to impress me. She always comes with good vibes and positive energy, so even if you are not feeling well that day she is sure to pump you right up. One of the best qualities about her is that she will always go the extra yard to help you succeed such as always being flexible when changing meeting dates or even when I need to reach her through text, she always has an instant reply. I would also like to add that I have had other training in the category of public speaking and it doesn't compare at all to the work I have accomplished here. What's great about Rita is she allows you to feel comfortable with your speaking and improve it in your own custom way. Overall if you need public speaking skills or interested in this category I would highly suggest Rita over any online course or instructor.

Justin is a true pro. Very valuable coaching in preparation for a business presentation I was giving. He asked good questions to understand the context of the situation and tailored his coaching to that specific opportunity. Great insights on the importance of the physical/mental connection needed to help make a successful speech. Always on time. I highly recommend Justin to any interested in improving their public speaking skills.

It was a blessing to meet Tomas as he is one of a kind. Tomas and I work virtually which is great for me as I travel quite a bit for work. He is able to take my presentations and not only give authentic feedback but help me tailor my speeches to the different audiences I present to. Tomas has also help me build confidence and understand how to utilize my strengths for any given speech. I would highly recommend Tomas for anyone looking to improve their public speaking skills, build confidence for a speech, or even if you need life coaching. He can do it all!

"There isn’t anyone I trust more than Natalia Elizabeth when it comes to auditions and advice. She is truly an actor’s actor and finds projects that best fit my “type.” Not only does she have the experience and the training, she’s just someone you immediately like. She doesn’t just talk the talk...she does the walk too. I always look forward to my emails from her and the opportunity to audition for more great projects!

I've engaged Brian as a Public Speaking and Image consultant. If you choose to engage Brian, first of all, prepare to have fun. His energy is contagious and his style of coaching is unique. He has made me a more confident speaker and has helped me to develop a strong sense of self-awareness which has helped me to improve everything about me; not only my speaking skills, but also my presence and image. His voice is the greatest Ive ever heard and he is an absolute pleasure to work with! I highly recommend his services!

I had a fantastic experience with Jess!! I communicated a custom plan I wanted to execute on for career/profesisonal development in the areas of public speaking and giving presentations. He created educational content just for me, he held in-depth personal calls (before and after) the in-person custom training, and he has taken a personal interest & effort in my learning and growth. I consider him to be a great teacher and mentor... and now a good friend! He really knows what he is talking about and helped me work on things I really/truly needed help on. I feel so much more confident and prepared now for the work ahead ;) I couldn't recommend Jess more highly!!

I have worked with Braco over the past seven years. He was my instructor for a Dale Carnegie and Institute of Advance Human Performance master classes. I also benefited greatly from taking advantage of one on one consulting. Braco directly impacted my professional development with public speaking, leadership, and continually pushing the limits of my comfort zone. He has impacted my personal development with tools to form better habits and increased emotional intelligence. I have seen a return on investment with my counseling and coaching from Braco that has led to promotions, deep and lasting professional relationships, and being an effective leader in my organization. -Paul M.

Ann is a wonderful teacher. She listened and adapted her training program for what I needed to focus on, and she has a real gift for giving concrete and actionable feedback and tips in a way that actually makes sense and doesn’t sound jargony. I have learned so much from her and continue to hear her encouragement and coaching in my head whenever I’m in a networking or public speaking situation.

Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.

I've been working with Imani for years now. She is very sweet and kind, but she also makes sure you are on track. She has helped me improve on my singing voice. I was always very shy, but now I have way more confidence. Not only when it comes to me speaking in public in front of a crowd, but also to be mindful of how to captivate a room. Imani is the real deal!

Jeremy taught me so much about how to be an effective public speaker and interview candidate. I have worked with him for two years now and have been able to use the techniques Jeremy gave me in several places and feel so much more confident about what I’m doing! I used to be totally terrified about getting up in front of groups to speak, but Jeremy gave me specific things to do before, during and after and it’s so much easier. Also, some of the acting exercises we worked on are really fun and I can do them in my daily life to improve my diction and communication skills. Such a great value and I feel he tailored his work to exactly what I needed. I still work with him when I need a brush up or when I’m prepping for something important.

I attended Illuminata Global's public program in NYC in late 2014. Growing up as an extremely shy person, I was quite nervous and apprehensive about attending the presentation skills day training. I was so surprised that there is an actual technique and method to effectively speak to an audience!! I was given the skills to stay on topic, get my point across and not only that, target why I was so petrified to speak to a group! I can't begin to express how much this training has given me hope and confidence that I can speak to a group effectively with out wanting to cry, shake or run for the hills! Thank you Josh Jenner for a wonderful experience. Mr. Jenner's non-judgmental, calm approach to the most scariest things in my life has given me a lot of hope and confidence for my future career!


If you shutter at the thought of speaking to an audience or like to speak but just want to enhance your skill set, then let's work together to get you where you want to go. I will give you support and feedback to make you more comfortable and better able to address small or large groups for presentations, job interviews, media interviews or public appearances. I am open for adults and children of from 12 to 18.


Work with individuals one-on-one and have every one go beyond the call of duty.


I will coach you for your upcoming public speaking engagement or you/your child for your/his/her upcoming audition. I equip my clients with tools to manage anxiety and unexpected variables in an audition or presentation situation, whether it is an unkind casting assistant or a fear of forgetting lines. As your provider, I will be right beside you, helping you to be your best self in any situation. I am a professional actor and writer with a graduate degree in acting. I have been through the ringer when it comes to the most harrowing auditions and speaking situations. I will help you feel strong, confident, in control -- and able to shine in any circumstances!

Because of my background in speech pathology, I am deeply attuned to clients' individual learning and communication styles. My approach to public speaking coaching and presentation training integrates the speech arts with the communication sciences in a very customized way that adds value and ensures success.

  • 4 years in business

I am a public speaker and a public speaking coach, educator and consultant. I have an extensive background coupled with appropriate credentials.


Are you in the corporate world and have great business skills, but come up short when speaking in public? As a professional actor/dancer/choreographer, I can help you to develop the skills and tools necessary for being a great public speaker. I have trained with some of the greatest voice and speech teachers, including the former head of voice at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, England. After training with me, speaking to a room full of investors will seem like a walk in the park.
