VIP SPEECH COACHING
Ever dream of giving a TED talk, or other large speaking engagement? Do you have a message to share and don’t know how to share it? Or do you have a story and don’t know how to translate it into a speech? Dawn has worked with clients one on one to deliver the speech that will leave audiences feeling connected to you as a speaker, and leaving them with a message that sticks.
Dawn sees her role as a speech coach as a in depth way to uncover the hidden gems in your communication pattern, and bring them to life. Much of this process entails finding the right experiences to share, recognizing its true significant and message, and connecting it back to an intended audience.
Storytelling with a Message – Uncover new stories to use as part of a speech that inspires, persuades, and engages audiences.

How it Works:
Dawn's coaching packages can include online instruction, live coaching, or a combination of the two depending on the location.
Over the course of 6-8 sessions, Dawn meets with clients one on one to evaluate, refine, update, or create a new speech. Each session will be focused on different aspect of speech development, including content selection, crafting and delivery. By the end of the coaching sessions, the client will have one full speech ready to present at an upcoming engagement.
