She not only helped me discover how to turn a long, dry presentation into a story that is interactive and interesting, but also helped me understand what it was that triggered my nervousness and gave me great suggestions on how to control it. Kayla is very unique and invests all of her energy into your success.”

“I have had the pleasure of retaining Kayla Schwartz as a Presentation Coach for my clients and I was so impressed by her caring and insightful technique that I am now a client myself.

She provides total support for speakers to help present themselves in the most professional and authentic light. From a client’s initial speech outline to crafting a compelling story, to taking the stage, Kayla is not only a compassionate coach, she is a true partner.  She is by the client’s side and if needed, provides excellent writing and editing support to ensure that the speaker’s message really resonates with the audience.

Kayla Schwartz’ knowledge of public speaking and its “human aspect” is remarkable. She continually shares new insights and updates and I find them applicable to many areas in one’s life.”

Sean Finnegan

“As a presenter I have found that every session I have had with Kayla has been rewarding and an eye opening learning experience. At a recent meeting with Kayla and with limited time to expend, Kayla’s intuitive ingenuity enhanced my presentation by suggesting improvements that went over quite well at an Insurance conference in Miami where I recently presented. 
Kayla is an outstanding and excellent coach. I am highly impressed with her approach, skills and style and I highly recommend her to those needing that level of expertise.”

“Kayla was and continues to be a huge asset to me in helping me communicate with my constituency especially when I tend to be too technical when speaking. She has made it possible for me to more effectively convey my points of concern and interest. I recommend Kayla highly to anyone who needs help in communicating and/or presenting to a large group of people.”

Tino Gagliardi
President at The Associated Musicians of Greater New York, Local 802 AFM

“Kayla is a true professional, whose training and experience as a speaking coach helped me to bring clarity to my message, showing me how to put my thoughts into an orderly fashion for delivery, giving me the confidence to speak from the heart, rather than like a canned speech being read from a teleprompter. As important, she taught me how to project my voice and myself, how to stand, use my hands and feel comfortable with myself. I would heartily recommend her to any professional who may be great at their game and in a one-to-one situation, but who need that special touch when addressing others in a larger arena.”

Una Cote
