HI THERE, THANKS FOR WANTING TO GET TO KNOW ME!
I am a seasoned public speaker, presenter, and workshop leader with 9+ years of experience in the marketplace.
Having completed my undergraduate degree at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and honed my communication skills at Harvard University’s Division of Continuing Education, my experience spans a range of national and international brands—from small up-and-coming start-ups, to more established organizations such as CNN, E! Entertainment, tbs, TNT, truTV, iHeartMedia and Adult Swim/Cartoon Network.
This tenure has given me a first-hand look at the inner workings of the corporate world and the challenges young professionals face when entering it. Amid fierce and constant competition, merely “doing good” is no longer enough.
IF YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR CAREER TO THE NEXT LEVEL, YOU NEED TO STAND OUT. AND IN ORDER TO STAND OUT, YOU HAVE TO SPEAK UP.
I learned this lesson early in my career, when I realized I was the only intern doing coffee runs and dry-cleaner pick-ups at the firm I was working at. Though the other interns and I were assigned the same “busy work,” they also got the opportunity to sit in on meetings and participate in business-related projects, whereas my managers thought my time was put to better use running errands. That’s because the few times I was invited to contribute, I was too shy to speak and thought myself too junior to have any good ideas.
One day, as I strained to balance numerous iced lattes (two of them for the other interns!), I broke down. I knew I had so much more to offer than just being the coffee girl.
I wish I could say things changed overnight and I walked in the next day exuding confidence, but of course that wasn’t the case. Instead, I made it a personal goal to steadily work on and improve my public speaking and communication skills, taking one baby step after another until I became comfortable enough to lead conversations around multi-million dollar campaigns.
THIS EXPERIENCE SHOWED ME PUBLIC SPEAKING IS A SKILL
THAT’S LEARNABLE BY ANYONE (including introverts such as myself!).
And now, I want to teach this skill to ambitious young professionals (like you!) who are looking to advance in their careers. Together, we’ll build your confidence and equip you with the communication tools necessary, so you can better engage your colleagues, articulate your ideas, and present with confidence – making you a respected and invaluable member of your team!
