Saskia Shakin started coaching Leaders in 1980—-in a career that never ceases to surprise her.

Her clients have worked in the White House; appeared before Congress; run global corporations; written Broadway plays;managed prestigious law firms; and held chairs at major universities.

She saw herself as a consultant; her clients called her “coach.” She had expected to carve a niche in the world of PR and advertising; she ended up coaching executives in corporate America.

One thing her career has taught her is: Expect the unexpected! Another thing her career has revealed: When we speak in public, we bring to the podium not just our speeches but ourselves. So, before we work on a speech, we must work on our values. Before we can engage an audience, we must engage ourselves.

Her book, More Than Words Can Say: The Making of Inspired Speakers is a collection of war stories and wisdom taken from her vast experience as a coach to speakers in positions of leadership.

Her website gives more details on her experience and her philosophy, as well as offering excerpts from her book.
