Speaking Coach

 
 
My name is Kevin Desrosiers and I work with business leaders, entrepreneurs, and sales/marketing professionals who want to capture their audience’s attention so their message heard.
 
Do you remember the last time you had to give a presentation or speech to a group of people? Did you have problems deciding exactly what to say and how to say it? Maybe it made you nervous. Perhaps you struggled to engage your audience and wish you had done better. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Regardless of how well you already speak, would you like to learn a step-by-step process that will elevate your speaking skills to the next level? What would that be worth to you in your business, work, or personal life?
If you, or someone you know, are ready to become a confident speaker and have your audience on the edge of their seats, we need to talk, so when you speak, people listen.

The Process



I work with people anywhere in the world. When we work together, we will start by discussing your goals as a speaker during a free consultation.  Based on your current level of speaking ability, I will explain how we can get you to where you want to be. If we agree that we are a good fit for each other, we will continue the process.
The first step will be for me to observe you speaking. This can be in person, or you can provide me with a recording of you giving a presentation. If it is an in person event that I attend, I will record the presentation so you have a copy to review after you receive my feedback.
Next, I will review your presentation and note things you did well and areas where you have opportunities.
Then we will meet in person or via zoom so I can give you feedback both verbally, and in a written report for your records. This is a two way conversation rather than me just telling you. The template for the report is:
  1.  What you did well.
  2.  Where you have opportunities
  3.  What you did best
  4.  Suggested next steps
From there, you practice building on your skills and we repeat the process until you have attained your goals.

Kevin is Amazing!  I am a Founder and CEO of my company and have been speaking for over 20 years in front of audiences of all sizes.  Kevin has a very helpful process where he constructively looked at all aspects of my presentation.

I reached out to Kevin for help with my speaking because I wanted to brush up on my speaking skills both online and off. I have never had formal training in this area and felt that for a professional, it is a key in my success. 

Kevin has been great to work with. He has pointed things out to me that I would not have picked up on my own. His feedback is always presented in a positive way and he makes the recommended changes simple to do. 

I immediately saw a difference and more of an awareness in how I approach my audience and I am excited for the continued improvement in my presence both online and off because of it.

- Adrienne Pluss, Author / Coach, Dallas TX
It has been quite some time since I have had the opportunity to address a room full of people, in person and I want to make the best impression. Kevin, really took the time as my public speaking coach to dive deep with me. He provided an organized and intentional list of things I was not even aware of when I give a presentation. Every detail was covered, and he provided samples of statements to sharpen me. I appreciated the detailed feedback from his perspective. Kevin highlighted what I do extremely well and gave me many things to improve upon but suggested to change a couple at a time. I admire the wisdom and expertise Kevin brings to the table and every golden nugget he shares, WORKS! I feel like I am going from an amateur level speaker to someone who can one day, command, and inspire the room. If you want to be taken seriously in today's world and are willing to take the constructive criticism that Kevin can provide, I highly recommend investing in his coaching. The only regret I have is not doing it sooner!
