“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 that 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!”

Working with LaQuita was a phenomenal experience. I had done all kinds of public speaking during my time in the military and as sales professional before I severed 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 too. 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.

“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.”

DOUG BELGRAD
Producer and Founder, 2.0 Entertainment

“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…?”

“I attended the public speaking program in YPO. The course was superb, focusing not only on communication technique, but also on actual delivery. What stood out was her focus on authenticity and making the speech yours. Laquita Ann really engaged us with her energy and unique teaching style. Definitely a lot of take home value.”

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!

“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.”
