About Me

What to say and how to say it?  That`s what I love to help people like you figure out.

As a coach and performer, I know how audiences lack patience and time.  Listeners need to get the key messages with conviction and clarity, and they need to be persuaded that their time with you is well spent. Fine tuning your story and main points,  creating better visuals, strengthening the voice, as well as staying focused can help achieve this. And the great news is: you can learn it quickly!

For the past 17 years, I have been helping individuals and groups present a more confident image and get their message across in an effective way.  From top executives, public servants and business leaders, to politicians and lawyers, managers, actors  – this customized training produces immediate results for everyone.  In Canada`s capital and internationally.

Throughout my career, I have coached well over a thousand people across Canada and the United States. My international online coaching has taken me from Brazil and the Caribbean all the way to Qatar and Laos in Presentation Skills, Voice and Accent Reduction.  As a result,  I have seen my clients achieve greater professional success, secure sought-after positions and gain recognition in their field of expertise.

In addition to doing one-on-one coaching privately, I am in demand as a trainer and facilitator for larger groups and have given workshops in Presentation Skills, Voice and Accent across the country and abroad, in both the private and public sectors.

Understanding your audience, knowing your key messages and using your voice with genuine confidence will guarantee results!

My passion remains the voice and as a professionally trained singer, I still enjoy performing classical music, here in Ottawa, or overseas. I enjoy speaking at conferences and have been a guest speaker at Opportunities Ontario, Retraite en action, and the Women`s Law Association, to name a few.

As for my education, all my undergraduate studies were completed in Europe, before graduating from the University of British Columbia. I also hold a diploma in vocal performance, as well as the Medal of Excellence from the Royal Conservatory of Music for highest achievements.

“I must say that I came away with a better sense of the impact my persona has on my presentation skills and will strive to improve. I am certainly grateful to you and your help in getting here. For me it was the most revealing presentation course that I have taken.”
