Be your best self. 

You worked long and hard on your ideas and projects. In the limited time of a presentation, your story deserves to be communicated and received by your audience in the fullest, most dynamic and memorable way possible. 

I help and enhance your self-awareness in communication to be clear, confident and authentic. Based on customized assessments, I utilize before and after on-camera recordings and acting techniques. You do most of the doing/speaking through mock presentations that simulate real-life situations. I do most of the listening/guiding as no one person is the same.

Your story and style is unique to you. I will guide you to walk tall in your purpose and elevate you to be your best self.

I'm often asked  to speak on TV or with media outlets about my investments and thoughts on current trends. Feeling comfortable helps me communicate more effectively. I really appreciate Esther's Media Training. It was very helpful and has given me confidence in several situations that have come up already. 

- PATRICK MCKENNA, Founder, High Ridge Venture Partners



"My tendency to 'uptalk' (the unconscious way of speaking where you end statements as a question) was getting in the way of my company's story being heard. Esther helped me become more self-aware of my communication style and coached me through techniques to break down the barriers I was putting up for myself. She is very effective!"

- SARAH SHEWEY, Founder & CEO, Happily

"I really loved how specific the feedback was to each person, and how acting techniques really came into play. I went to a public speaking class a few years ago, and it doesn’t even compare to the session with Esther! I feel so inspired—as if she woke up a new part of me!"

- KELLEY HOFFMAN, Senior Content Director, Sephora
