“You don’t have to be a supermodel, athlete, or public figure to be a successful speaker,” says Lorraine Howell. “Some of the most powerful and vital messages come from ordinary people sharing extraordinary experiences and the wisdom they have learned from those experiences. Audiences want the authenticity of speakers who have taken the time to get to know who they are and what is important to them.”

Lorraine Howell knows a thing or two about being in the spotlight. After a long, successful career as a television news and talk show producer in the Bay Area, Howell started Media Skills Training in 1998. Since then, she has been successfully coaching professionals how to prepare to be in the spotlight. Now, it’s her turn to be in the spotlight!

In today’s competitive communications landscape, most of us are not celebrities, models, actors and entertainers who have the talent or extraordinary appearance to wow and mesmerize audiences. Lorraine Howell helps her clients—who are ordinary business people and professionals just like you and me—to achieve their communications goals by using skills and techniques that she learned in broadcasting.

As a media skills training expert, Lorraine helps her clients to get ready for speeches, presentations, media interviews and networking opportunities. She shows people how to identify their relevant stories and how to create clear, memorable ideas and points. Once people feel good about what they want to say, their speaking skills improve and then it’s just a matter of coaching and fine tuning their delivery skills.
