(Note: If you may be changing plans for events because of the coronavirus outbreak, I can offer in-person or virtual coaching from my home office in Tel Aviv.)
A former journalist and marketer in my prior careers, I am now a professional speaker, writer, workshop facilitator, consultant, and public speaking coach as well a member of Toastmasters International.
I use my years of experience in marketing and speaking to teach people how to speak to large groups effectively — and even embark on a speaking career, if they want.
A note: When I first started to speak, I bombed at the beginning. Spectacularly. People were walking out of the room in groups at one conference. A grade of F from the attendees at another. But now you can learn from my prior mistakes and know what to do — and not to do — from the very beginning!
One framework I use is the 4 Ps in marketing:
Product — You and your speech. How should you position yourself, what should you say, and how should you say it?
Price — Should you charge a fee? Promote your business somehow? Both?
Place — Where and to whom should you speak?
Promotion — How can you promote yourself and your speeches while advertising to get future events?
Born and raised in the United States, I am now based out of Tel Aviv. I am available for regular public speaking coaching calls, long-term consulting, company and event workshops, and even on-site coaching. In the future, I may offer an online public speaking class or other similar course.
