Here’s what people from around the world are saying…

“Body Language Mastery”
LaQuita’s program was about much more than simply speaking in front of groups of people. She provided positive real time tactics to be a better all around communicator. Her tips about body language were particularly helpful- informing both how I carry myself in social settings and my ability to read the body language of people with whom I communicate.

“Life Coach Clarity”
She is a valuable resource, full of energy and empathy. I have definitely acquired new skills that will bring my speaking to the next level. She was also able to navigate our group to a better performance all together! Thank you LaQuita Ann for making this happen!

“Delivering Your BEST YOU”
Working with LaQuita was a phenomenal experience. I had done all kinds of public speaking during my time in the military and as a sales professional before I served our country. I did not realize the actual art that it takes to lead an audience through an emotional experience.  When I first sat with LaQuita, she started breaking down my speech line by line. After multiple sessions, I can now look back at my first rendition and see the magic she brought to my presentation.
Her years of expertise in this space is evident the first time you meet with her. She has incredible patience and really cares that you deliver the BEST YOU to any audience you may have to present to. There is NO WAY we would have had the response from the crowd without LaQuita’s wisdom. I would recommend her to anyone that has an important speech or presentation in the future. She is in a class by herself and not incorporating her knowledge would be a tragic mistake for anyone about to step on a BIG stage.

“Clear Message”
LaQuita Ann was able to give confidence, poise and purpose to assist me to understand the art of getting an audience to go away with a clear understanding of my message “ I am from head office and I am here to help, HONESTLY.”

“Step out of your Comfort Zone” or “Stop the Fear “
Contrary to my fears though, not only La Quita’s workshop was very useful and constructive but her personality and approach made it even enjoyable to stand up and speak. What was even more unexpected, was the fact that we would get up to speak on topics varying from personal stories, to subjects none of us had any idea on, nor any time to prepare for and we managed to do it successfully.
Public speaking definitely needs a lot of practice and LaQuita gave us the right tools to practice it correctly but most importantly, to stop fearing the idea of it. I’d love to have her coach me again as well as my work team!

“Extraordinary Learning Opportunity”
As an active international YPOer interested in improving my communication skills, I have had the opportunity to see LaQuita Ann “in action” several times during the last year. LaQuita Ann combines a vast experience in teaching basic and advanced communication techniques, with an easy approach, that grants extraordinary results to the YPO audience. Just after the first day of his program, you realize you are a more secure speaker, either in front of an audience, or facing a camera. I strongly recommend LaQuita Ann for any event, seminar, course, or learning opportunity, where YPOers need to improve their communication abilities, in short periods of time.
Only-in-YPO, and a lot of fun!

“Embrace New Adventures”
My name is Justin Sheffield and I’m a medically retired Navy SEAL.  LaQuita, personally coached me for a speech I gave in front of three thousand people at the Young Presidents annual event in Vancouver.  She made me very comfortable to give a speech confidently in front of an audience of that size.  Until then, the most I’d ever been in front of is less than a hundred.  Thank you to Laquita for an amazing job helping me tell my story with clarity and confidence.  I felt fully prepared and ready!

“Worth Every Minute”
“LaQuita gave us the insight and training to speak at a level typically only experienced by professional speakers and politicians, every minute of the seminar was worth it, I’m looking forward to another class.”

“Making an Impact”
“You made an impact and your wisdom expanded everyone in the room! You are very gifted and embody your wisdom.

“Learning to Pause”
I have seriously benefitted from LaQuita’s expertise in communicating with flow, personality and clarity. Once we uncovered my fear of silence, learning how to pause while speaking became my most powerful speaking tool in my personal and professional life. My newfound confidence and consequent success are growing reminders of the excellent training that LaQuita consistently delivered.

“Confidence in front of a large crowd”
Nailed my 10-year company anniversary speech and I owe it all to Laquita. After attending her 3-day course, I have more confidence in how I prepare, my understanding of technique and my ability to speak in front of a large crowd. Thanks Laquita for not just the skills that will follow me throughout my life but for going above and beyond to follow-up to make sure the speech went well.

“Standing Ovation”
“I have spoken publicly for over a decade, giving presentations from 1-hour to 4-hours in duration.  But I had never given a 15-minute “Ted-Like” talk before.  I was completely overwhelmed by the prospect of having to deliver a meaningful speech in so little time.  My first draft was horrendous.  I tried to pack so much information in that it made very little sense at all. Then LaQuita stepped in.  She was calm, understanding and confident that she could help shape my talk into a moving presentation that would leave the audience with a profound message.  LaQuita was very easy to work with.  She respected my wishes and worked with me tirelessly, not only on the content of my talk, but on the delivery, as well.  At first I didn’t think it would even be possible to do what she was asking me to do.  But in the end, her positive outlook and supportive style helped me gain the confidence I needed.  And her helpful tweaks and insights made all the difference in the world.  When I gave the presentation I was well rehearsed but natural.  And the audience responded with a standing ovation.  Need I say more…?”

“Overcoming All Odds”
Personally public speaking can be difficult and intimidating.  LaQuita Ann minimized these feelings and helped me overcome great odds so I could ultimately communicate my message successfully.  Not only does she work with you on performance but on material.  She becomes fully invested in you and your goal of effectively performing to the best of your ability.  She is all in!  In my case, I had never spoken for more than a couple hundred people in church or at film screenings.  I had to speak for thousands of extremely influential people at a YPO event and she prepared me emotionally, mentally and physically.  I felt like I was able to achieve my best simply because she believed in me.  I could not ask for more of a supportive and resourceful speech coach than LaQuita.  I will never speak in public unless I prepare with LaQuita Ann!

“Effective Leader”
The lessons, knowledge, and tips you taught me were extremely insightful and will help me grow both personally and professionally. You have shown me the value of exuding confidence, competence, warmth and effectiveness and how important it is to remain relatable. I will continue to practice my speech and body language until it becomes second nature and I can confidently roll with the punches.

“Achieving Maximum Impact”
“LaQuita Ann is truly exceptional.  Her presentation and performance coaching was invaluable.  Her real gift was helping me find my authentic voice and shaping my story to achieve maximum power and impact.”

“My confidence to speak in front of the group grew substantially through the many, many (required) opportunities that we were all given to pop-up and speak on anything from very small topics to random improv.  Well done!”

“Targeted Feedback”
“LaQuita Ann was a superb resource for our crash course in public speaking.  Her professional demeanor and targeted feedback quickly put us at ease and helped establish the foundational skill sets to enhance our speech delivery.”

“Unsurpassed Professionalism”
I can highly recommend LaQuita Ann Cleare as a fantastic public speaking coach. I have worked with her on my own speech making skills; I have seen the results of her work in preparing TED like speakers for a large global conference of CEO’s; and I have worked with her in a multi-day group workshop format with 25 young adults. In each of these settings, her professionalism, engagement and subject matter knowledge were unsurpassed. She is energetic, professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her for any number of projects relating to speech making, presentations, media relations, interview skills and marketing.
