Artful Speaker


Artful Speaker is one of the most popular COCAbiz offerings, because communication is critical. Take your presentation and storytelling skills to the next level with powerful workplace learning programs run by COCA teaching artists and business facilitators.

Crafting the Story

Because the story matters.
Learn how to move beyond jargon in describing your business assets. Using a narrative arc, metaphor, and mystery to fully engage your audience, create human connection, and tell your story.

Visual Communication

Because images make an impact.
Learn principles for selecting or creating visuals to bring the content of your presentation to life. A professional designer teaches strategies to simplify data, design infographics, and make your meaning powerfully clear through visual storytelling.

Speak the Speech

Because delivery is key.
Improve your public speaking skills to command the next presentation or team meeting. Work with a stage actor to build confidence, develop authentic presence, and manage nerves through breath, voice, posture, and gesture exercises. Learn to adapt your voice and physical presence to engage authentically and influence groups.

Workshops can be provided individually or in combination. Additional customized coaching sessions can be added.

The COCAbiz Artful Speaker workshop was a wonderful addition to our leadership development program. Many of our participants told us they took away meaningful and practical advice they could implement every day. Many leaders told us this was the most impactful session of the year for them. I can’t recommend this session enough!
