     I am a public speaker and brand strategist.

I work with brands and individuals on making strong, positive, and lasting impressions.

In other words, I help you hone your professional presentation and social skills.

Vanessa came to the General Counsel’s Office to speak to the group of Legal Managers about the Art of Public Speaking. Her presentation was just amazing – encouraging, engaging, and inspiring. The group truly appreciated her advice on the speech organization and general approaches to speaking to large audiences. Thank you, Vanessa!
