You’ve got the skills, but can you show THEM?
You know your material. It’s not a question of competence but a question of confidence. You want to deliver your content in a way that will cause your audience to think, feel and be moved to act after hearing you speak.
Verbal communication remains the bedrock of our society. It is how all the most pressing issues of life are delivered, how we connect with our loved ones and how our stories are preserved from generation to generation in a living chain. The difference between success and failure is unfortunately often our ability to express ourselves clearly and not the content of our hearts. It is often the first person to popularize that gets all the credit. You may have all the answers, and yet if you cannot clearly show anyone you will never move mountains.
Whether you’re going to a job interview, speaking to an audience of 50, or leading your team to greatness – your confidence, voice and authority ultimately will make or break your career.

Travia has a comprehensive knowledge of many useful techniques and a thorough understanding of the psychological dynamics at play between speakers and their audience. She is very adaptable and able to tailor her work very specifically to her clients. She is also very dedicated and shows a great ability with coaching, supporting and reinforcing. I strongly recommend a consultation at the very least. She is an inspiration and a great leader.
Prior to working with Travia, I’d been interviewed for several positions where I didn’t receive the job offer. In most of those instances, I knew that I didn’t show up well enough in the interview to convince my potential employer that I was the best candidate for the role. In addition, I acknowledged that my career progression had been stagnant over the past 5 years. It was time to make a change to better the outcomes of my interviews and improve how I was showing up to business leaders at interviews and on the job.
Travia has such a genuine and warm personality that made me feel at ease talking with her about my challenges and being receptive to her strategies and techniques to change my situation. After my second mock interview session with Travia that I noticed significant improvement in how I was responding to questions that I struggled with during interviews. By guiding me to tease out my relevant work experiences, Travia helped me to enhance my interview skills and demonstrate the confidence needed to show up well in front of leaders during interviews and at work. I highly recommend Travia as an interview coach/advisor.
What I enjoyed most about coaching with Travia was her ability to make public speaking easy to master. I went to Travia because I had a big speaking engagement that was only six weeks away and I was extremely anxious. But just after the first session I felt calmer and less overwhelmed because Travia had mapped out a step by step process of how we were going prepare and ultimately nail my presentation. At every session we tweaked and re-tweaked my speech, practiced it multiple times and spent time building my confidence as a speaker. Along the way, I actually had fun and started looking forward to our sessions!
Having had the privilege of seen her speak many times, Travia is a master public speaker and presenter. But she’s also an incredibly gifted and intuitive teacher. Her individualized and “above and beyond” approach made me feel like she was as vested in my success. Travia was compassionate, patient, and a delight to work with, and I recommend her unequivocally to anyone preparing for an important speech, or seeking connection and effective expression in their everyday communication.”
