"The Readiness is all...go, make you ready".  


A lot of us believe that powerful personal presence is a quality exclusive to those who were born with it or some mysterious artform open only to those of privilege and status.


I believe that embodied presence is our natural state of energy and by doing the right work, we can set about reclaiming our birthright and accelerating our journey to becoming leaders who have presence, impact, and influence in-person and online, professionally, and in life.

Mark Downey, RRT.

I am the Speaker Coach. My mission is to hold the space for others so that they may embody their most powerful presence to listen, speak and lead with humanity-driven reason. I train and coach business, community and thought leaders globally in all aspects of their communication interactions.

I am a multi-certified and registered Voice, Speech and Presence coach whose particular mission is to foster the state of  embodied presence as a  way of dealing with the world and one another.  In a time where our sedentary, hi-tech and mechanized lifestyles are shifting us farther apart to the detriment of our society and planet this can only help us survive and thrive.

However, I am keenly aware that this work must also be practical, applicable and effective in this fast-paced world and so the work is focused on the action more than the thinking, knowing that this can in turn change our brains to become more powerfully present, compassionate and balanced human beings.

Why Presence?

I created this platform to democratize access to this work and allow us all a greater opportunity to connect with presence to one another and to our world. Flexible and resilient, curious and inclusive, ethical and empathetic are in demand but rarely found leadership qualities that rely upon a scaffold of authentic presence upon which to build sustain and evolve.

As our society tilts more and more to dependence upon disembodied technology and mechanized thinking, those who can think, act, and communicate with embodied presence will be asked to step forward to lead.
