Are you ready for Authentic Communication?

Norma T. Hollis is one of America’s leading experts on Authenticity.  For the past 12 years, she has helped hundreds of speakers find their ‘authentic’ voices and transform their speaking careers into speaking empires.  She has also coached celebrities, executives, politicians, and entrepreneurs searching for a ‘deeper’ connection with themselves and their mission. 

Authenticity is the key to finding your life’s purpose and communicating with extraordinary power.

Authentic Communication means:

  1. You are speaking or presenting from the deepest part of your being – not simply reciting words.
  2. You present your ideas in a way that others can understand and find meaningful.
  3. You connect with your audience, staff, or customers in a way that leaves a lasting impression.
  4. Your message is credible because it doesn’t hide the truth – it is comprised of facts, not hype.
  5. Your presentation is designed around your audience’s needs and not your personal agenda.
  6. Your communication style is transparent and believable.
  7. You walk your talk.
