Frequently Asked Question
Frequently asked questions
I Don't Have A Fear Of Public Speaking, So I Don't Need A Coach. Right?
Wrong. Confidence alone doesn’t make you a great public speaker, and the consequences of misspeaking can be enormous. One poor response can do millions of dollars in damage to a company. Even the best public speakers benefit from help.
I Have A Speech Scheduled For Tomorrow. Can You Help Me?
Yes and no. The only thing you can really do the evening before with someone who has had no training is smooth out some minor delivery issues. We cannot make an inexperienced speaker look like Tony Robbins in two hours. Plan for several sessions and even a rehearsal in the actual venue.
Can We Meet In Person?
You not only can, you should. Establishing a rapport with your potential coach is critical to the success of your training—and the best way to do so is face-to-face. It’s not like working with a psychiatrist, but you have to be equally as comfortable
How Much Do You Cost?
Price depends on factors including the duration, type and level of intensity of the work. Request a consultation below to find out our rates for you.
Have You Coached Executives In My Industry And At My Level?
You don’t want to waste time educating your coach on what communication looks like in your field in our humble opinion.
Will You Videotape Me?
Even if you’re not going on TV, video is a great tool for improving your presentation skills. Seeing yourself as others see you is enlightening. Just make sure to get the original videos when you’re done. You can practice from them or destroy them essentially.
Will You Sign A Confidentiality Agreement?
You don’t want your image and presentation undermined by embarrassing videos turning up on YouTube. Walk away from a coach who won’t sign a confidentiality agreement.
Do You Focus On Content Or Delivery?
Most executives believe they only need help with the latter, but any good coach will insist on working on both. A flawed message makes the messenger look bad.
What Kind Of Follow Up Service Do You Offer?
Don’t stop training once your presentation/speech/appearance is over. A good trainer will give you drills, tips and tactics to help you improve on your own.
Are There Communication Problems That You Can't Help Me With?
Many people come to us and ask for help with accent reduction or a lisp. These are specialties that might involve a different profession. So it behooves someone to know the difference early on.
