Coaching Services

Improved communication and public speaking skills are an important of any organization’s overall strategy.  Knowing what to say is your business as an expert — but knowing how to say it is someone else’s business.

Our primary business here at Watermountain Studio is making things. That’s where my real joy lies.  But for twenty years, I coached people in speaking and debating skills, to help them prepare for delivering school reports and participating in mock trials, debate teams, and public speaking appearances.  There’s a graduate-school-level training that I acquired in rhetoric and communications skills; then I joined Toastmasters and acquired an even more sophisticated training in communications techniques.

Now?  I help business people in western Massachusetts refine and develop their overall media strategy, by helping them develop strong communications skills and improve their confidence when speaking with clients, regulators, other industry professionals, and suppliers.  I’ve worked with a growing number of clients in numerous industries to help them develop their public speaking skills, their branding and messaging, and even their marketing materials.  I’ve served:

  • government-sponsored agencies
  • environmental engineering
  • local non-profits engaged in business development
  • sales forces
  • leadership development teams

I might be able to help you.
