I am a English Presentation/Life Coach who has helped hundreds in Tokyo, Japan become confident and powerful presenters. I have found in my long journey as a speaker that technique alone will only get you so far. It is vitally important to get your mind, body and social skills up to shape before you can truly have a base of 1,000 fans. Not only am certified professional coach, a recovering English Teacher, and a long time Toastmaster (DTM, yeah!). I have spend more than 15 years studying and applying psychology, marketing and learning design. It is my mission to not only help you get your message out there. It is my mission to help you so the audience will also be moved to learn and apply what you are trying so hard to get out into the world. Even if you do not yet know what your message is I believe that each and everyone has a voice that can change the world for the better. The just need to find it, and get it to be heard.
BTW, I was born in Richmond Virginia, a stone throw away from Washington, D.C. and also home of satisfyingly salty country ham. I recovered from a very unhealthy diet and political speaking style.
I was at Kansas State University while pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering and Ergonomics。It was there where I found Toastmasters and fell in love with public speaking and presentation.
I have worked in HR and for companies like Wyle Labs ( a NASA Contractor) and Cisco Japan. I have done more than 1,000 presentations , seminars & workshops over my career. I have given direct feedback to more than 2,000 people to help them successfully communicate whether be in presentation or seminar, an interactive workshop or simply effectively face to face.
