Recently, I spoke to a group of business women about moving obstacles (fear, nerves, inexperience) that are keeping them from being better speakers. I ended that talk with a quote from poet and teacher Maya Angelou. She told Oprah Winfrey, “When you know better, you do better.” That simple idea is the inspiration for my company’s name, Better Speaking Skills.
created this company so I can help people speak better, think better and
perform better on stage and in life. I am passionate about two things,
education and empowerment, and I truly believe that better communication can
make the world a better place.
communication leads to better understanding and that moves us one step closer
to solving our problems. If your problem is fear of talking to a group of
people, better training can help. If your stage delivery is dull, boring and
stiff, speaker coaching can help. If you want to become a more dynamic speaker,
you need to learn better presentation skills.
spending 28 years behind the scenes as a writer and editor, I decided to turn
my retirement years into a quest for personal and professional fulfillment as a
speaker and public speaking coach. Yes, I have a little ham in me. I love to be
on stage. But I love to teach and help people become better communicators and
My mission is simple. I seek to empower, inspire
and educate my clients so they stand tall and speak with poise, power and
passion. When you know better, you do better…on stage and in life!
