Melissa in a few words

I can help you become a great storyteller. I can help you hone your message and get clear on what you need to communicate.

And those butterflies in your stomach when you get onstage in front of others? We will work on that as well.

I am an experienced speaker trainer focused on speech preparation, alleviating performance anxiety, and US market entry. I offer 1:1 sessions and group sessions.

My current and former clients are located in Germany, Ukraine, France, Singapore, Canada, and China.
