I highly recommend Melanie as an executive presence coach. I have worked with her for several months and she has been fantastic, helping me navigate Covid-time Zoom presence, presentation skills and video preparation/presence. I also tapped her to to be a webinar monitor for a Home Office webinar that I developed. She was a superstar!

Melanie helped me identify aspects in my speech and communication that could be improved to be more impactful. I was not sure how effective it would be to do an executive voice coaching session over Zoom, but I have to say it met and even exceeded my expectations. From minor enunciation tweaks, to warm-up vocal exercises, to role playing various types of communication styles, Melanie's methods helped guide me on what and how to improve. She is a great coach and I'd strongly recommend working with her to develop your executive presence!

Melanie works on/with the voice figuratively and literally. This can have a therapy like effect. Her tone of voice is so pleasant. Her level of professionalism is top notch! I’m extremely pleased with my choice to purchase my package of sessions. Overall, I’d say, I’ve gained awareness (the first step to making any adjustments) in regards to my literal and figurative voice working with my girl Melanie.

My first session with Melanie was really great. She took the time to understand my goals (asking some great questions), all the while listening to my speech, diction and vocal patterns, and probably more importantly, getting me relaxed and comfortable so that I could speak in a natural, normal way. I wanted to make sure that any guidance she would provide at the end was based on real and meaningful ‘talking’, for lack of a better phrase. She provided constructive feedback and specific recommendations on how to bring my voice and presence to the next level.

I worked with Melanie one-on-one for interview preparation. She tailored her approach specifically to my needs, and was a thoughtful listener. She picked up on my inner monologue quickly and gave actionable insights to improve my voice, executive presence, and interviewing skills within the first session.

Melanie is an amazing voice coach that I truly recommend. She customizes the training sessions according to your needs. These sessions are very efficient and I was able to improve very fast. Melanie is a great person to work with!

Melanie was amazing! I have always been terribly shy, which was negatively affecting my boss' perception in senior level meetings. I was uncomfortable speaking up in front of C level executives. After working with Melanie, I have a new found sense of self and confidence to speak to almost anyone.

Deanna was a very engaging teacher who made all of the content interesting and memorable. She has a very positive and body/mind mentality which really helped me see beyond voice and how I hold myself. She was also patient and reinforcing of the way I was framing a situation or trying to understand it in a slightly different way.

Deanna was amazing. Clear, engaging, responsive and gave me a deeper understanding of how the body and voice can work together to achieve gravitas. Thanks Deanna!

Melanie and her team are proficient in the art of voice coaching. I had both a 1:1 and a Group session and they both met my expectations. Best part is they will give you tools, tips and techniques to take with you as this is not a one and done thing. You get what you put in and you have to keep using these techniques to get better and make it part of your habit over time. I highly recommend her services !!
