Public Speaking Coaching for All Scenarios
With more than 25 years of experience, Nora has trained every type of spokesperson: from top leaders at Fortune 500 companies, to startup founders, to nonprofits of all sizes. She even transformed two marketing executives — who had never been on TV before — into “lifestyle experts” for NBC’s TODAY show. They appeared live on national TV alongside famous news anchors and never missed a beat.
After graduating from Northwestern University, home to the nation’s No. 1 journalism school, Nora began her TV news career as an investigative reporter for FOX and NBC stations. She earned a reputation for doggedly pursuing the truth, even prompting the mayor of an Ohio city to flee during a particularly tough line of questioning.
Nora continued to climb the newsroom ladder until she earned the top job: anchor of the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts. When she wasn’t sitting behind the anchor desk, she stood on stage as the emcee of events, acted as the “on-camera talent” for all sorts of videos, and gave more speeches than she cares to remember. She became a public speaking pro, and she will happily share the lessons she learned through trial and error.
As a publicist in San Francisco, Nora has accompanied her clients to interviews with The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Bloomberg TV, Fast Company, Fortune, and Forbes just to name a few. She knows what questions reporters ask and which answers keep them coming back for more.
