Speech Coaching


Live Zoom 1:1 video coaching for executives worldwide!  

Transform Your Business Speaking Skills

Does your skill as a speaker equal your other professional abilities? Communicating successfully is a key driver of organizational and career success. Are you the top-level speaker or presenter you need to be? If you're serious about speaking in business, you need to work with one of the world's leading performance coaches. I can help you in-person at my Greater Boston office, or at your convenience, online via Zoom video meetings.

As a New York and London stage actor and speech coach, I created The Genard Method to produce exceptional business speakers. You won’t learn how to act. But you will discover the world's most powerful techniques for speaking with confidence and credibility. Isn't it time to develop stage presence and influence to stand out in your industry? Does using body language, storytelling, and a dynamic voice to influence stakeholders sound right to you?

Choose Your Executive Coaching Program

The Genard Method offers four 1:1 executive coaching programs, shown in the blue box in the upper right of this page. Choose our comprehensive Executive Presentation Skills Coaching program; Fearless Speaking to overcome fear of public speaking; or Voice and Speech Improvement. If you're preparing for a specific speech or appearance, Presentation Coaching will bring you up to speed in terms of message development, your performance, or both.

Get ready to use theater-based techniques to improve faster than you thought possible! Here are just some of the ways my personalized coaching will help you or your team with my in-person or distance coaching:

  • Developing a performance persona for leadership.
  • Transitioning into a new role with more visibility.
  • Pitching your products, services, or vision.
  • Improving your vocal skills and stage presence.
  • Strengthening your ability to deliver a powerful message.
  • Conquering fear and enjoying public speaking.
  • Job interviews or promotion interviews, with videotaped preparation and practice.
  • Persuasive skills with prospects, customers, clients, and boards.
  • Quarterly earnings calls.
  • Motivating and activating employees and stakeholders.
  • Book tours and publicity campaigns.
  • Using body language and nonverbal communication effectively.
  • Becoming a memorable speaker who reliably produces results.

"This was amazing! You’ve really opened my eyes to areas for improvement. I spoke fearlessly and with much more presence at the conference you prepared me for. In fact, I have never felt better after a presentation. I can’t thank you enough for your help. You are indeed the best!"
