Improve Public Speaking & Presentation Skills – Courses & Coaching

Can you relax and be at ease speaking to groups?
Can you share your ideas and expertise confidently in presentations?
Can you speak authentically and from your heart in meetings?

I facilitate a nurturing public speaking program to build good communication skills where you discover your natural abilities to speak authentically in groups, meetings and presentations.

After coaching hundreds of groups and thousands of business professionals, I can say for certain that you have the potential to be a star at speaking even if you have stage fright or fear of public speaking! You have an abundance of feelings and emotions that can fuel your ability to speak from your heart with passion. You simply need to learn to unfreeze the flow of your natural emotions and tap into them to energize your speech.

My presentation skill, public speaking courses and individual coaching offer a step-by-step approach to developing a style of speaking that is based on being who you are, rather than who you think you should be.

You don’t just learn mechanical speaking skills or public speaking tips in the Sandra Zimmer Method. You learn to open up and speak from your authentic and most brilliant self. You learn to be comfortable and present at the center of attention so you free up your self-expression, improving your public speaking significantly. You also learn to flow your thoughts and words and to speak with passion.

Most participants say this is just what they needed to develop their confidence and build better communication skills.
