Get to know me…

Hi, I’m Meridith and I have been coaching business professionals in public speaking since 2009.
I want people to take their careers to the next level by becoming effective and compelling speakers who really know how to connect with any audience. I started coaching because I saw a need for people who were not in the performing arts to have someone on their team who could help bring their stories to life by using the same tools actors do. I am looking for clients who would like to achieve career growth and success through cultivating a strong connection through the compelling use of story, and not just through information. 

I coach business professionals ranging from information technology (Agile and the SCRUM process), engineering, architecture, advertising, finance and a variety of other industries. My specialties are in presentation and public speaking consultation, individual training and development, and creative team collaboration using improvisational theatre techniques to build trust, collaboration and creative solutions in communication. Clients have included: MERCER, CenturyLink, CU LEEDS School of Business, Google, Mercer, DePuy, Johnson&Jonson, SurveyGizmo, CEAVCO, RAPT Media, Network Affiliates and many others. 

Please feel free to reach out for a cup of coffee or 15 min. phone chat.
I love what I do and am always happy to talk!
