Live audience and critique
Do you have an upcoming speech or presentation? Headed to a conference and need to practice presenting your research? Defending your thesis or dissertation? Need to practice for an interview? Want to run your ideas by an objective outside party? I can help!
I will listen to or watch you live via Skype or FaceTime (or pre-record) and offer constructive feedback on your efforts. I can edit or check your corresponding PowerPoint or handouts for grammar, spelling, organization and flow as well. I can even conduct a mock interview for employment interactively.
I understand from experience that sometimes you really need to practice in front of someone other than yourself in a mirror and don't necessarily want to enlist your family, friends and colleagues until you feel more confident and your presentation feels more polished. It's tough being a perfectionist!!
I have defended an undergraduate and masters level thesis, given presentations in front of medical professionals and students alike in classrooms and at conferences. My undergraduate major was communication sciences and disorders with a minor in English literature. My masters is in speech language pathology and I routinely work with adults in the areas of speech and language disorders as well as social pragmatics as a licensed speech-language pathologist. It is literally my life passion to see people communicate successfully and effectively with the world around them.
If you need someone to listen, critique and offer constructive advice hit me up!
