Story Performance Coaching and Presentation Skills:
Tell Your Story!
A stronger presence as a speaker/presenter can make a dramatic impact on your career and/or the success of your fundraising or sales/marketing team.
As a story performance and presentation skills coach, Andrea helps you access your authentic voice to tell your story using creative expression and emotional connection techniques that inspire action.
Learn how to tell your organization's story so your clients, customers and audiences will get it. Andrea teaches how to inject the emotional connection and theatrical techniques that great actors use to engage and entertain their audiences, into your stories so you have the greatest opportunity to effectively connect with your audience.
Andrea's dynamic strategies for success can take you to a higher level through customized, one-on-one or group performance coaching:
- Clarify, organize and refine your message for targeted focus.
- Enhance your natural style and leverage your strengths.
- Take advantage of powerful "nonverbals" - vocal delivery, dress, eye contact, silence, and use of space - for maximum audience attention and connection.
- Create balance in factual content and storytelling to amplify your points.
For Nonprofit Professionals
In this competitive fundraising arena, it's not enough for an organization's leadership to simply convey the facts to secure the support of volunteers and contributors. In most cases, facts and figures have already been spelled out.
But what makes the difference between getting a yes or a no? The answer isn't mysterious, but it also isn't easy to execute.
Both volunteers and contributors need to feel moved to act, to get it deep in their bones why the organization's mission merits investing their resources. A strong emotional appeal strengthens an organization's chances to rise above the crowd and gain the attention, respect and support it deserves.
Andrea coaches nonprofit professionals to tell their organization's story with skill, persuasiveness and confidence. Her performance coaching programs set in motion the emotions that drive action.

"We had the opportunity to speak before 400 plus people and had never spoken to more than 40. We were quite lost about how to approach this. Andrea took our vision and thoughts and made it into a purposeful, humorous and engaging presentation. We are now more confident to hold educational seminars and accept speaking engagements. Our experience with her rates a 10!"

"Andrea asks the right questions to help create a simple yet powerful piece. She has a way of getting you to reach deeper within yourself. I have taken a couple of speech classes in college, but none of them compared to Andrea's workshops. She teaches you how to connect with the audience by finding a universal message that will reach your audience."
