Public Speaking Coaching - Group and Individual Instruction
Many people struggle with fear of public speaking. Often that fear comes from lack of skills, or lack of preparation—because they don’t know how to prepare. I love helping people transform from a fearful speakers to confident and engaging speakers.
My coaching is tailored to the needs of each individual and organization, and I help clients in the following ways:
• Performance Skills: I teach techniques to enhance vocal and physical delivery, and how to manage nerves and "stage fright". These skills build confidence.
• Developing the message: I help clients to create their message: from crafting presentation decks to writing keynotes.
• Virtual Presentation Skills: I provide clients with techniques to engage audiences virtually, and how to "read the room", even though the room is virtual.
I provide individual and group coaching and my clients are in a variety of industries: sales, financial services, tech, legal, hospitality and the arts. I have prepared clients for TED talks, sales presentations, keynotes, panel discussions, and a variety of other events. My clients have won awards!

"Through working with Nancy, I have seen remarkable improvement in my Sales Team’s performance. She has taught them how to command the room, improve their flow, polish their language and – above all – how to deliver a message.
Nancy is also a pleasure to work with; she genuinely cares about everything she does, and it is a true a privilege to work with her. She made the journey for me and my team an educational and enriching experience.
I highly recommend working with Nancy to any professional who wishes to improve public speaking skills or sales presentations for themselves or for their team."

I highly recommend Nancy if you are looking for the best Public Speaking Coach, as she is a valuable asset to any organization."

"Nancy is insightful and you can tell she is an expert in her field because everything she teaches she practices herself. She is thorough and prepared and can tailor her presentations to your groups specific needs. In the age of hybrid and remote work she can help you be your best self, whether it's in a sales pitch, networking, or when you are sharing in a meeting! Highly recommend, I felt like everyone on my team had a takeaway."

“I had the pleasure of hosting Nancy as a Guest Speaker on her SME of Video Interviews. As we talked more and more, it was apparent that her experience as a director and teacher made her the perfect person to give thought-provoking suggestions to our clients. Nancy was very thorough and made sure to tailor her presentation to the needs of our participants. I would highly recommend Nancy as a speaker for any group, and I look forward to working with her again.”

"As international sommelier competitions are often televised, on stage in front of a live audience of more than 700, training with Nancy Robillard proved an undeniable asset. She was able to improve speech clarity, body language and stress management; a definite element that helped me win the best sommelier in France award. I will be working with her again!"
"As a playwright, I worked with Nancy as a director and dramaturg, so I when I needed to deliver keynotes, I knew what to expect. Nancy's ability to hone in on what was needed--from speech to stance is uncanny. She's razor-sharp, direct and kind."
"I am immensely grateful for her precision and demanding, yet supportive exactitude because it truly elevates the quality of the work. That’s a tough balance to strike and Nancy nails it each time. Another thing I admire about Nancy is her generosity of spirit. Because she takes the time to learn about me as a learner, Nancy’s able to choose just the right words I need to hear to fully understand her feedback and be able to implement it. I wholeheartedly recommend her!"
