Conquer the fear of public speaking for good, improve your communication and presentation skills, and be seen as a true leader by your colleagues and peers in your industry or business.


Here's who I am and what I teach...


You are a successful high-level professional or entrepreneur, and you really KNOW your stuff.

You’re smart. You have extensive knowledge, wisdom, and expertise to share with your team, with your clients, or with an audience.

But stepping onto a stage, into a meeting, or onto a group Zoom call is your worst nightmare.

As soon as you’re called upon to speak and share, you freeze, and all your speaking anxiety spills out. Just thinking about speaking in front of others makes you break into a cold sweat and feel sick to your stomach.

And so you end up avoiding speaking opportunities which would have given you visibility in your company or business. 

Or worse. When you do raise your hand and speak in meetings or give presentations, you don’t speak with authority and confidence, and so you're not seen as an expert and a leader. 

And as a result, someone else gets the promotion you desired, someone else gets to have the position you eyed for yourself,  someone else grabs an amazing client you wanted. Someone who appears to have more confidence and authority, and thus is seen as a better "expert" or "leader".

It's not like you haven't tried.

At some point, after yet another frustrating or embarrassing moment in front of your team or your clients, you decided enough was enough. You were going to get over your fear once and for all.

You watched a bunch of TED talks to learn from the speakers.

You practiced in the mirror.

Maybe you joined a Toastmasters group, watched YouTube videos, enrolled in classes, and felt like you were making progress.

But despite your best efforts, when all heads turned to you during a live presentation or the camera turned on, the words got stuck in your throat — if you even made it that far.

I’ve Been in Your Shoes...

Being in the spotlight used to be my worst nightmare. Literally.

A traumatic speaking experience when I was 10 turned me off of public speaking for good... or at least I believed so.

But after years of turning down opportunities, ducking out of meetings to avoid answering questions on the spot, and saying no to networking events, I decided I could no longer afford to stay in the shadows.

As an entrepreneur struggling to grow my business, I knew that I had no choice but to step up and figure it out.

If I wanted to succeed in my career and become financially prosperous, I had to overcome my fear.

And so I practiced and practiced, and nothing changed. I still felt paralyzed with fear every time all eyes were on me.

Sound familiar?

If this sounds like you, then keep reading because this could possibly be the moment when EVERYTHING changes for you.


What I discovered after years of experiencing public speaking anxiety is that it’s not about practicing more or imagining your audience naked (to this day, I hear this advice from some gurus!)

It’s about:

🌟 changing the way you view and perceive your audience (whether it's a huge crowd watching you speak or the CEO of your company listening to your presentation)

🌟 changing the way you think about your presentation (this could be a real stage presentation or simply a podcast interview)

🌟 changing the way you see yourself 

Once I realized that I needed to learn how to FEEL confident rather than how to APPEAR confident, things started shifting for me.

And it worked!

I completely demolished my fear of public speaking, developed unshakable self-confidence, built a successful corporate career, and founded several thriving businesses.

And I attribute all of my success to learning how to speak assertively, effectively, and powerfully (and still be myself!) in any situation, be it in a meeting with company executives, on a zoom call with potential clients, on a livestream, or on stage.

And I can teach you how you too can conquer your fear public speaking for good!

It doesn’t matter if you’re an introvert.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been terrified of public speaking all your life and hate the spotlight.

It doesn’t matter if English isn’t your first language.

It doesn't matter if you think you aren't attractive or polished enough to appear on stage or on video.

It doesn't even matter if you have failed before in front of an audience.

Because anyone can become a confident, compelling, and captivating speaker... anyone!

What would it mean for your career or business if you could step up and speak with confidence, authority, and brilliance in front of anyone, be it potential clients, your team, industry peers, or company executives?

Imagine what it will feel like when you...

  • Deliver a powerful presentation in front of clients without shaking and doubting yourself the whole time.
  • Speak in a meeting with authority and poise while everyone around you nods in approval.
  • Conduct memorable and persuasive livestreams to share your expertise with your audience.
  • Deliver a talk at a virtual or live conference to a large crowd who are hanging on your every word.
  • Be seen as a leader. 

This is not a fairy tale or make-believe.

This could be YOUR NEW REALITY when you join my Brilliant Speakers Academy® coaching program!

Why Does the Brilliant Speakers Academy® Work?

The biggest reason my program works so well is because it was specifically designed to make fundamental changes to the way you think about yourself, the people around you, and speaking in general. We are working on your mindset and your core self, NOT your façade.

I don't teach you how to APPEAR confident when you speak. I teach you how to truly FEEL confident when all eyes are on you.

Because only when you develop this unshakeable self-confidence can you step in front of any audience, big or small, live or virtual, and speak with genuine authority, impact, and brilliance.

Nobody else teaches it this way!

Have Questions? Here Are Answers to the Three Most Commonly Asked Questions...

You can certainly learn from other resources, but most don’t address changing your mindset around speaking in public and assume that somehow you'll overcome your fear of speaking simply by doing it. Which is not the case, as I'm sure you already know.

It’s not about learning the theory of overcoming your fear; it’s about practical and logical steps to get from point A (scared and uncomfortable) to point B (confident and enigmatic). It’s for people like me and you, who never thought that speaking confidently and actually enjoying being in front of an audience could be our thing.

My system is unique because it's designed to make fundamental changes to the way you think about your audience, yourself, and public speaking in general. I don't teach you to APPEAR confident (a.k.a. fake it till you make it). I teach you how to Truly Feel Confident. Nobody else teaches it this way.

Most of our students start seeing results within the first 2 months of joining the program. Yes, it’s that quick! But of course, the key is to make these mindset shifts permanent. You want to conquer the fear of public speaking for good. And this is what I teach inside the coaching program. 

Having said that, let me emphasize that I can only give you coaching. You must be willing to receive it, implement it, internalize it, and practice it. This is really the key. I can’t make your mindset shifts for you. But I can coach you to make them if you’re willing to learn.

Public speaking is not something you’re either born with or not. It’s not a talent. It’s a skill. And like any skill, it can be taught, learned, internalized, and practiced. 

The biggest reason my program works so well (and it will work for you too!) is because it was specifically designed to make fundamental changes to the way you think about yourself, the people around you, and speaking in general. We are working on your mindset and your core self, NOT your façade.

I don't teach you how to APPEAR confident when you speak. I teach you how to truly FEEL confident when all eyes are on you.

Because only when you develop this unshakeable self-confidence can you step in front of any audience, big or small, live or virtual, and speak with genuine authority, impact, and brilliance.

Nobody else teaches it this way!

Having said that, I can’t force you to do the work and I can't do it for you. This program will only work for you if you set the intention and follow the steps and my coaching.

More love from my students...


Listen, I've been where you are right now. I used to be absolutely terrified of public speaking. In fact, the spotlight was something I avoided at all costs.

Today, speaking in front of virtual or live audiences is something I do with joy. Overcoming my fear of public speaking propelled my corporate career and helped me build several successful businesses. I appeared on Fox Morning News and have been featured in numerous publications, including NBC, CBS, and BizWest Media.

But most importantly, it allowed me to create a unique step-by-step program to help many people just like you conquer their fear of speaking, build unshakable self-confidence, and make massive changes in their careers and lives.

I can’t wait to help you do the same!

Let’s do it right. Let's skip over years of trial-and-error and get straight to the results with an easy-to-follow, step-by-step system that’s been proven with hundreds of students. Let’s start from where you are and grow together by tapping into your mind and into your heart at the same time.
