Executive Coach Uses Humor and Acting to Deliver Unforgettable Presentation Performances

By Nancy Duarte

Sounds crazy, but I met Victoria Labalme on Twitter and we’ve become lifelong friends. Her background in acting and improv gives her a special edge as an executive presentation coach. She coaches completely differently than anyone I’ve met. Most delivery coaches want to record you so you can “see” all the things you need to stop doing. Sometimes that negative chatter of “stop umming” and “use bigger gestures” disrupts us from being our true selves. She uses the metaphor of a Prism Effect. Victoria believes that if you bring your true self and true colors to your presentations, your message will come across more pure and clear, plus you’ll come alive!

 

I had the privilege of interviewing her at my office. Topics covered include remote presenting, her paradigm “The Prism Effect”, Velcro communication, Twitter-inspired friendships, and peach bellinis. (And at 6:44, there’s a little bonus where we delved a little deeper into Victoria’s personal life.) You can see why she’s my first choice to recommend to keynote in my stead.
