Mission-Driven Messenger

Difference Makers! Become Powerfully Persuasive, Confident, and Effective in Delivering your Motivating Message to Inspire and Connect with any Audience.

Public Speaking Program 

The Mission-Driven Messenger is an 8-week public speaking program and showcase designed to empower Difference Makers to more confidently and persuasively leverage their passion and energy to motivate meaningful action for their cause. You'll learn the art of authentically connecting with audiences, sharing your story in a compelling way, and inspiring specific progress-oriented action. You will learn to work with stage-fright or speaking anxiety, rather than let it silence you. Through the group sessions and two one-to-one coaching calls with me, you will receive personalized guidance at every step of the process -- from topic selection and speechwriting, to preparation and rehearsal, up to and even after your on-stage performance. Get the expert guidance and confidence boost to make your next speech your best speech yet!
