Executive Coaching — Online or In-Person
You’ve Never Been at a Loss for Words… But are you a POWER COMMUNICATOR?
Have you ever been asked on the spot at a staff meeting to address a particular project you’re working on, only to reply with some kind of unorganized, bumbling answer hoping whatever you said made sense?
Have you been so afraid of speaking that you have no idea what you said after your presentation?
After delivering your presentation, you received a less than favorable response from your audience?
Is speaking something you dread?

What Clients Say About Wendy’s Coaching Programs
“The difference between working with Wendy of SmarTalkers and the larger public speaking/media training companies which I have worked with, is the larger companies tried to mold me into their way of speaking instead of discovering my style as Wendy did. Wendy spent time getting to know me and my personality which helped me create and deliver a presentation that was successful and I felt comfortable with.”
Chuck Schwartz, Eagle Asset Management
“Working one on one with Wendy helped me overcome the death-like fear I had of public speaking. I’ve learned not only that I have something to say – but I also can present it effectively and when needed, charmingly. I will be forever grateful that we had the chance to work together and will call on her in a minute if I need a booster shot!”
Renee Vaughn, President at Williams Consulting Group
“Wendy’s assistance in polishing the draft, detailing the visual aids, putting a shine on my delivery and, most importantly, instilling a strong degree of self-confidence in me, paid enormous dividends. My presentation, was, without a doubt the most professional of any I had ever given. The material, techniques and ideas that Wendy taught me have not only benefited me in public speaking endeavors but have also improve the quality of and effectiveness of my one-on-one communication with prospects and existing clients.”
Robert J. Burnside, CLU, ChFC, Northwestern Mutual
Wendy was incredibly valuable as I prepared to give a 20-minute keynote in front of 300+ people. She helped me think through my messaging, improve my delivery, and best of all, feel confident when it was time to take that stage. I look forward to working with her again next time I have a high-impact speaking opportunity.
Alexis Grant, Executive Vice President of Content at The Penny Hoarder (Taylor Media)
I’m so happy I found Wendy! She was able to help me discover what was holding me back! I just needed some coaching and guidance to help me realize what was right there in front of me the whole time! 🙂 With much joy and relief, I had an “ah-ha” moment with Wendy and was able to feel confident in moving forward after our time together.
In addition, Wendy really stood out from others I’d reached out to regarding coaching. In our initial call, when I first “met” her, Wendy took the time to make sure she was clear about understanding what my needs were and clear on how she could help me meet those needs.
Thanks again Wendy! I won’t hesitate to reach out again!
