From polished executives who need a quick brush-up to shaky beginners, Nick’s coaching services all of your public speaking needs. Nick serves as a full-time public speaking coach at the George Jackson Academy, where he has implemented the following best practices for crafting and delivering successful speeches. He joins alongside clients in a nurturing and compassionate pursuit of each person’s own personal best oratorical abilities. Hundreds of participants have found this welcoming approach vital to becoming highly effective orators.  

“It Triggers My Jitters!”

This is the most common complaint Nick hears from clients about public speaking. In fact, statistics show that it is the number one fear among all Americans. Death is second. As Jerry Seinfeld once observed, “Apparently, Americans think it is better to be in the casket than delivering the eulogy.”

In light of this, Nick offers clients personalized assistance to allay their pubic speaking fears. Nick’s graduate training in mindfulness and body-scan practices often helps clients in this regard. Then, clients are gradually led outside of their comfort zones to unleash their inner oration sensation.

Delivery & Content Techniques

Through Nick’s program, clients gain proven, comprehensive public speaking delivery and content best practices. These multi-sensory ingredients emphasize the importance of imagination, playfulness, and humor to making even the most mundane messages palatable. For example, one provocative question nick encourages clients to consider is “How can thinking of one’s speech as a melody more fully bring it to life?” Moreover, Nick guides clients through audience evaluation procedures prior to the event. This enables the crafting of personalized, high-impact speeches that leave all in attendance speechless.  

Real-Time Feedback

Nick uses an original, time-tested algorithm to identify and address clients’ strengths and weaknesses. This process may include the use of recording devices to help clients experience for themselves necessary areas of improvement. Additionally, clients are invited to critique their sessions on a regular basis. This empowers Nick to instantaneously adjust the skills being reinforced. Each client is provided with a detailed evaluation of their progress and a recording of their speeches.
