Testimonials

  • We have invested a lot of money in speed training, skills camps, private coaching, etc. to help our son be the best athlete. He has dreams of playing football in college. It never occurred to us how important it was for him to speak confidently to his coaches or recruiters. We were very apprehensive to make the time and financial investment in one more coaching expense. But we quickly saw the value as our son talked more and texted less. When you find a coach who can not only help your athlete speak more confidently but helps to positively change the dynamics of how your whole family communicates or relates to each other, you want to tell the world. Then again, you might want to keep her a secret! Ms. Geist didn't just coach my son on how to speak to coaches or recruiters, she helped him to be better prepared for his future. He will use these communication skills through his whole life and who knows, maybe even be a sports journalist some day!

  • I signed my son up for a public speaking class last summer because he was shy about speaking in public. At the end of the 7 week class (2hrs each week), he was much more confident to speak in front of a roomful people. His speech coach,not only taught students how to handle the pressure of public speaking but gave them the "tool box" to deliver a solid speech. My son loved the class because it was a very positive environment for learning and the coach nurtured his interest in public speech. As a result, my son joined his school's competitive speech team and experienced success as a beginner and freshmen. He will continue to work in a class format as well as receive private coaching with The Public.
