Beyond Speaking Skills

Mark works from the inside-out as well as the outside-in to coach the entire person. This helps you FEEL confident as well as APPEAR confident. You will learn speaking skills that will help you communicate more effectively, but you will also learn why common mental habits lock you in fear, and how to change it.

Mark's Philosophy

Mark's approach includes as much focus on improving the mindset of the speaker as improving their skill in public speaking.

From an early age, Mark developed a love for communication through singing. It took more than a decade of struggling and training to fully express his voice on stage. Combined with a background as a therapist, it has become his passion to teach others who struggle with expressing themselves in their own areas of expertise.

“I would get really anxious talking to strangers at networking events, and the idea of running my own workshops felt off-limits to me. Since beginning to practice this, not only has my ability to speak to strangers greatly improved, my overall anxiety has reduced! Not only did my speaking skills improve, I am also much more comfortable with myself now--which to me is priceless. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking to up-level their speaking skills AND their confidence in themselves!"
