coaching

Speechless’ expert coaches help you find and amplify your authentic voice to create an engaging, inspiring, and highly personalized presentation. Over the course of one or more of our highly effective sessions, a Speechless coach will help you meet your goals and get you ready for your best performance yet.

details:

  • These sessions help drive results like longer video retention, increased speaking opportunities, and more confidence when presenting to an audience of one or one thousand.

  • Have a specific talk or event coming up? We coach speakers for major events like Google I/O, Adobe Max, the Grace Hopper Celebration, and TED. Get one on one time for each of your team members as you reach your target date.

  • Want to generally improve upon your presentation skills? We can provide one on one time on a specific day each week / month throughout the calendar year to help your team and individuals hone their communication skills.

point system

After six years of highly effective learning experiences for the top Silicon Valley companies we have taken thousands of data points from our survey results and crafted the Speechless POINT System®. Our five areas of emphasis are: 

  • Presence (Body, Voice, Mind, Heart, Confidence)

  • Originality (Improvisation, Authenticity, Passion, Innovation, Process)

  • Inclusion (Respect, Listen, Trust, Connect, Empower)

  • Narrative (Structure, Genre, Theme, Goal, Metaphor)

  • Transformation (Inspire, Discover, Share, Grow, Lead)

Begin with a general workshop that covers each emphasis area of POINT and focus on the group's public speaking challenges or do an entire workshop on just one. Bring us in quarterly to dive deeper on each area of emphasis. We also offer follow up services for individuals as they gear up for conferences, videos, pitches and more in our Speechless Sprints.
