Skills & Experience

 

My soft skills.

  • Listening. Hearing the story behind your narrative. Recognizing the metaphors. Clarifying the storyline and characters.

  • Coaching. Reflecting what you show and tell. Open to what else is possible. Supporting you where support is needed.

  • Simplifying. Distilling high-level language. Taking words that speak to everyone and no one in particular and turning them into stories that speak to the one person you want to reach.

  • Consistency. Through planning and strategy, ensuring your message is clear and consistent across all of your communication channels.

  • Writing. Anyone can write, but not everyone can write well. Forget buzz words. Apply your true voice to all of your communications. Your voice is unique and the words you use should reflect that.

  • Speaking. As an experienced public speaker and presenter, I can help you prepare spoken communications (speeches) as well as projected ones (slides).
