In 2020, Forbes invited Elizabeth to join the Forbes Women Forum during COVID19, so she could weigh in on leadership issues. What makes Elizabeth highly unique is she is just like the executives she works with, coaches, and serves. She, herself, still works in Corporate America, for one of the biggest Fintech companies on the planet. She knows what it is like to try to find that ten minutes to re-focus, re-calibrate and calm down so she can bring that energy back into her work. Elizabeth's vision is to provide a place for the executive to explore mindfulness and meditation - on their own terms in a format and setting they could digest. What makes her the ideal teacher is she is just like them - she works, drinks a lot of Starbucks, shows up for meetings five minutes early and is the top producer in the company and still maintains a daily meditation practice, along with a marriage. Elizabeth's specialty is helping clients land the promotion, find a new job or simply bring their leadership game to the next level. Elizabeth knows why someone is hired, fired of promote before they do. When she isn't coaching the Who's Who to help them up their game in leadership, Elizabeth can be found on the back of her husband's Harley Davidson motorcycle or twisting in the yoga studio for hours on end.
I am ecstatic to be helping clients become outstanding presenters. The experience I draw on and the coaching tools that I use primarily come from three different professional experiences: my first career as an actor, my work as a sales manager, and my experience as an MBA student and as a finance professional. Acting skills such as vocal projection, use of body language, and subtle emotional expression are all vital parts of effective presentations. During the later years of my acting career, I worked as a sales manager. Selling came naturally to me because of my interest in communication, and I taught dozens of employees to use presentation skills to be successful in their careers. In 2005, I attended the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University; after which, I worked in asset management. After business school, I came to better understand the values of a more traditional corporate environment, and I built my business by adapting acting knowledge in a way that was appropriate for a business environment. I welcome the opportunity to work with you and help you unleash your potential as an outstanding speaker.
