A COACH WITH 20 YRS. OF SHOW BUSINESS EXPERIENCE -
There is no question that a speech today must have a certain level of entertainment value. The degree of that "entertainment edge" is of course determined by your audience and what might be appropriate for a given setting. Who better to teach you these tools and techniques than someone with 20 years of professional experience in theater, comedy, and film/video/TV AND corporate speaking? In the growing market of a younger audience accustomed to entertainment on stage and video communication, Victoria's background has proven invaluable in helping people connect with an audience both live and through the lens. Victoria brings you top tools from the speaking industry, the corporate communications market AND show business. In addition to her work with senior executives, she interacts weekly with performers, directors and producers ranging from Broadway stages to Hollywood films, comedy clubs to cutting-edge performance art venues to keep you current, creative and connected.
A COACH WHO WORKS FROM THE "INSIDE OUT" -
Most presentation skills coaches teach from the "outside in" often putting clients in an awkward position wherein they are forced into various gestures, movements, styles, structures and tonalities. Victoria's proprietary EMS system helps you become more yourself vs. what the coach thinks you should be. There is nothing the audience wants more than an authentic speaker, someone who has relevant information, and who delivers it in an engaging fashion. But authenticity comes first. Victoria's system is designed to help you express your ideas in the way that only you can.

She scouts for new techniques, bringing you best practices and cutting edge ideas...and though it goes without saying, she has a visceral, intellectual, logistical and technical understanding of the challenges you might face with a given upcoming presentation and thus can provide you with the insights and information to address and overcome those issues.
