“I want to say ‘thank-you’ for your brilliant editing comments. Yes, I deleted and abbreviated in all the places you suggested and the presentation was much shorter and smoother. I in turn felt much more professional and confident.”
Ruth Meek, Dallas, TX

“Georgia’s guidance and insight made a tremendous difference in refining my abilities as a speaker. As a seasoned coach, she trained me how to best communicate my message. I thank God for providing me with such an inspiring mentor.”
Jennifer Sands, speaker and author of “A Tempered Faith”

“I had no idea how helpful your critique would be! You gave many valuable suggestions for making my presentation more powerful yet you were very positive and encouraging.”

Coaching for Authors & Speakers

As a member of the CLASS staff (Christian Leaders, Authors & Speakers Services) for more than 18 years, Georgia has trained thousands of beginning and established writers and speakers. Being an author and speaker herself, Georgia knows the unique challenges that communicators face personally and professionally.

“I’ve been speaking at conferences and doing fine. How could coaching help me?”
No matter what our level of expertise, there is always room for improvement. All of the greatest athletes, like Tiger Woods and Michael Phelps, have coaches to help them improve. If these people, who are at the top of their game, understand the value of coaching then we as speakers and writers should take advantage of this same kind of partnership. Coaching saves you time, energy, and money by recognizing what is holding you back, drawing out your potential and equipping you to stay focused on your goals.

“What if I need a critique on one of my recorded presentations? What kind of feedback would I receive?”
Whether you are doing a workshop or keynote presentation, you have a defined amount of time to communicate your message. All too often, the audience has to work hard to glean key thoughts and ideas. I will help you distill your message into a clear, concise, memorable presentation that audiences can recall and apply to their daily lives. I will help you tighten your message, polish your trademark presentation or put a special sparkle in your speech.
