I sought coaching with Alexis to work on overcoming anxiety associated with public speaking. As a graduate student and leader in my industry, I am often required to speak, and needed to be more comfortable in that area. Alexis not only provided me the tools to recognize and manage my public speaking anxiety, but also to better manage myself in general.
With Alexis, I learned the importance of taking care of myself, being okay with saying no, caring less about what others think, being more unapologetically confident, and taking up the space I need. All of these things together changed my self perception, empowering me as a woman.
The experience for me was life changing and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity.
Alexis provided a training session to a group of 20 nonprofit leaders and their coaches (over 80 people in all) participating in a pitch competition called SEED20. I met with her ahead of time to provide her with background on the program so she should could tailor the content of her training session to fit the program’s needs. Her passion for storytelling and supporting the nonprofit community was obvious from the very beginning. I was truly impressed with the training session that she provided. The content of her presentation was spot on. Even more impressive, the presentation of the material was engaging and entertaining! I received feedback from a number attendees letting me know how much they enjoyed the training session and how insightful they found it. I am confident that the nonprofits and coaches will be well prepared to WOW the audience during the SEED20 2019 OnStage event.
Alexis recently served as a panelist on our monthly Triple Threat Panel event at Advent Coworking. I happened to moderate this session on the topic of “Raising Your Visibility.” Her unique perspective of building an audience through public speaking provided great insight to our engaged audience. What stood out to me the most was Alexis’ ability to offer real, grounded, inspiring advice to those who may be wondering how to simply put themselves out there. Her spirited demeanor and desire to connect with not just the audience, but the other panelists and myself as moderator demonstrated her ability to command the room in a respectful manner. I also truly appreciated the time she took after the panel show appreciation for the opportunity and get to know each other further. I look forward to working with Alexis again soon!
Alexis really challenged me when we worked together. She helped me distill complex, critical information into simple, bite-sized ideas for my target audience to understand. It created a major shift in how I think about and process information and improved the quality and efficiency of my work. Her knowledge and perspective on communication helped refine how I think. I am grateful to have learned from and work with her. It was money and time well spent. A great investment in my career!
I’ve worked with Alexis for almost a year now and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Every business needs a secret weapon; the Pitch Prof is mine.
I own a tech company and sometimes struggle with how to explain the advanced concepts and services. Whenever I’m invited to give a presentation, she’s the first person I call to help me with it. She really understands how to bring out the best in her clients. For me, that means she turns my technical jargon into interesting stories. It helps me communicate with a non-techie audience.
I have her on a monthly retainer and it works out great. I don’t have to hire a full-time Communications Director, but this way I still get all the help I need.
