valerie-kittel-picValerie is a theatre trained communicator and public speaking coach. Drawing from 35+ years professional experience in theatre she combines presentation delivery techniques, psychology, and the latest communication research to help professionals develop a strong and influential speaking style.

She has successfully coached leaders in global politics, business, law, healthcare, science, medicine, the arts, urban planning, medical technology, engineering and others to invigorate and sharpen the value of their communication efforts, and enhance the quality of experience their audience is having.

She is the owner of ConsciousSpeaking - a public speaking and presentation skills consulting business that provides private speaker coaching, education & career training, and workshops on confident and creative communication.

She is a presentation skills specialist (ad hoc) for Pathway Associates and holds a BFA Theatre, MFA Arts Administration, and ESL Linguistics from the University of Utah.

"Coaching, for me, is an exciting collaboration with people whose level of dedication as speakers and leaders reflects their purpose and contribution to others. What happens when someone not only accepts the spotlight of public speaking but wants to go even further and experience the art of communicating? What happens when the elements of live performance hit their mark?"
