Are you one of the 8.4 million Americans who still fears public speaking more than death?

Does the spotlight inspire nothing but dread in your heart of hearts? Are you dismayed because your business, your ideas, or your client pitches sparkle on paper and in the digital domain, but crumble into anguished defeat at the mere thought of the spoken word?

Nice to meet you!

I’m Lanie Presswood:

Speech Coach and Professional Persuasive Person.

I’m a fullservice public speaking consultant offering speech writing and presentation coaching services for entrepreneurs who are ready to bring their experience and insights to a broader audience.

I am committed to integrating the fundamentals of strong public presentations with the dynamic needs of 21st century entrepreneurs. My focus is not on drilling gestures and tongue twisters (though I have plenty of those in my toolkit), but rather identifying your unique voice and planning individualized strategies to make sure that you can confidently bring down the house, every time you take the stage.

After all, it’s 2019.

So why is public speaking still treated like the exclusive domain of long-dead white dudes?  Sorry, Aristotle, but there must be a better way.

I want to help you demystify public speaking so that you know you will crush it every time you pick up a microphone.

Banish the fear.

Conquer your anxiety.

Embrace the opportunity to be heard.
