To help you achieve your most powerful, effective and authentic communication- in speaking, listening and writing - is my mission. Today’s world demands that we be more than “techno-communicators”. To be most effective, we need to connect with more awareness, clarity, presence and an authentic voice.

Each day presents new opportunities and new challenges. Our purpose–mine and my associates–is to provide you the support, guidance and direction you can count on to do more than just make it––rather, to BE who you really are––having found your own powerful inner and outer Voice.

Speech Coach & Private Coaching

I work with individuals from a wide variety of professions – directors, managers, presidents of boards, individuals in transition from one profession to another – all looking for a more confident image, sense of personal presence, magnetism, charisma and authenticity – in their communication.

This is exciting work! I love assisting in the evolution of an individual’s real self. Maybe this is YOU! Whatever your individual communication need– self image in the world, sense of presence and personal power, projection, and more- I’ll help you find and develop your natural skills into their stronger, more confident manifestation. That means --- YOU being more WHO you are, with more awareness, natural charisma, and consciousness of your presence, so you carry it with you, always. Together, we explore and develop your natural skills, and add more!

Professional Background

My background ranges from training as an actress at the University of London, England; from performing in Hollywood and elsewhere, to acquiring a teaching credential in Theatre, to extensive experience in the entertainment industry --- film, cable, television and live theatre. You benefit from my 20 plus years in marketing and public relations, as well as my work in the corporate and classroom business of the English language.

Parallel to my outer adventures were those of an inner nature. I studied healing arts as a serendipitous result of a life-threatening accident, leading to my ministerial ordination and a degree in Natural Healing & Sacred Theology. Coaching/counseling you with your communication needs, with sensitivity, direction and compassion is key to my practice.

My declared ministry is COMMUNICATION. My focus is on the worlds of professional and personal connection, responding to YOUR needs in YOUR world.

YOUR communication effectiveness and ease are what matter to me!

"Lynne...moves you beyond the typical performance orientation so common in public speaking and gets to the root of effective communication.  What you'll learn will change the way you see and feel about the whole process of speaking, and, most importantly, listening.  The Speaking Circles® process is very powerful on a professional and personal level."
