Build Your Speaking
LIVE Workshop on Zoom

Develop Your Executive Presence + Leadership
with Public Speaking Skills

You'll learn our frameworks to build clarity & confidence


Have you ever had one of these situations happen to you:

You're in a meeting or group and asked to share something on the spot. You get really nervous and feel at a loss for words.

You're at a networking event where you need to concisely share with other attendees who you are, what you do, and how you help people. After you introduce yourself, you realized you left out the most important parts or it all felt like a jumble.

You're leading a meeting where you need to motivate your team, but you didn't have an opportunity to prepare your message ahead of time and feel like you weren't as clear or confident as you want to be.

As a leader, both impromptu and prepared speaking skills are a must.

This is what you'll work on in our NEW online workshop live on Zoom.

Why Communication Skills Matter in Leadership

Clarity and Articulation

The ability to express your thoughts and ideas clearly is a cornerstone of executive presence. It's not just about what you say, but how you say it. Presenting with clarity and confidence signals to your audience that you know your stuff and are confident in your role.

Persuasion and Influence

Leaders need to rally people around a common goal. To do this, you must be able to influence and persuade. Effective presentation skills include the art of persuasion, helping you to win over stakeholders, motivate your team, and champion your ideas with conviction.

Engagement and Connection

Building rapport with your audience is crucial to your executive presence. A great presenter knows how to engage the audience, create a connection, and foster an environment of mutual respect and understanding.

Resilience and Adaptability

 Not every presentation or panel will go as planned. How you handle these moments can either bolster or undermine your executive presence. Masterful speakers are resilient, adaptable, and can think on their feet.

Storytelling Skills are a Must as a Leader

You'll learn our frameworks to build clarity & confidence

We've all been in those meetings and events where someone exudes an indefinable 'something' that commands attention. When they speak, everyone listens. When they lead, everyone follows. What is this elusive quality? It's called executive presence.

But here's the thing: Executive presence doesn't simply materialize overnight. Nor is it the exclusive domain of the naturally charismatic. It's an art that can be cultivated, and one of the most powerful tools for doing so is honing your presentation and storytelling skills.

Presentation skills are more than just about giving a well-crafted speech or PowerPoint presentation. They are about communicating effectively, whether it's a one-on-one conversation, a team meeting, or a keynote speech in front of hundreds.

Effective leadership communication is not a luxury, it's a necessity. In the current business climate, your ability to communicate ideas clearly, persuade effectively, and exhibit strong executive presence can be a game-changer. It can empower you to inspire your team, make better strategic decisions, and succeed in external interactions like sales and negotiations.

Storytelling skills are about connecting on a human level. They transform dry facts and figures into compelling narratives that captivate audiences, foster empathy, and drive engagement. A leader skilled in storytelling doesn’t just share information; they weave it into a narrative that resonates deeply, making their message memorable and impactful.

Here at Speaking Your Brand, we are experts in helping you develop the clarity and confidence you need to communicate your ideas, get buy-in, and move your audience to action.

I realized that my trainings were a bit too “sterile” and I was trying to get a lot of information across to the listeners.

As a result of working with Speaking Your Brand, I’ve learned how to include personal stories into my talks, which I now realize is VERY important.

— Chanta Wilkinson, DEI Consultant, Trainer, and Speaker


From learning and working with Carol and Diane, I've realized the power of sharing my own stories in my presentations.

The Power of Public Speaking

From our first consult call, Tammy Lally's powerful insights into talking honestly and openly about "money shame" so moved me that I knew her message was an idea worth spreading.

The immediate and dramatic reactions from reviewers let us know that the work we had done together would get results.

Her TEDxOrlando talk was so well received that it was selected by the TED organization to be showcased on their home page (only about 50 out of 25,000 TEDx talks are selected for the home page each year). Tammy's talk has had over 2 million views.

"Carol’s process of storytelling is compassionate and smart. With her guidance, I was able to take my story and turn it into a powerful idea worth spreading on the TEDx stage. We all need people to guide us to our greatness. Carol is one of those people.” - Tammy Lally

"Carol Cox is one of the best speaking coaches out there.” - TED Organizer Alex Rudloff

What Our Clients Have Said:

Dr. Carmen Landrau

Your group program helped me tremendously, particularly in these areas:

  1. Accountability makes the goals real.
  2. The support of other members of the group, especially when impostor syndrome starts lurking in the back of my mind.
  3. Receiving “The How” to do it was priceless. This last benefit is crucial to your program. Many courses offer nonspecific general advice, but here we received dedicated action steps for each person’s situation.

To me you are the "it" person when it comes to speaking coaches.

— Carmen Landrau, M.D., Professional Speaker


In your group program, I really benefitted from:

  • the valuable collaboration and feedback from other successful women who are experts in their craft
  • understanding how to pitch
  • how to effectively tell a story and how transition into and out of it
  • how to ask for an opportunity to speak
  • how to simplify my message so that it’s understood and received properly

This was a valuable program for me both personally and professionally.

— Jamara Wilson, Entrepreneur & Speaker
