We founded Presenting Solutions because people prefer presentations that are engaging and clear.

Our work began in 2005 as New York Speech Coaching’s division for corporate clients. Presenting Solutions became its own entity in 2021 so that its focus could be exclusively on serving the needs of companies.

Presenting Solutions was established by executive speech coach John West. After decades of coaching executives and teams at companies across the globe, he now fosters the passion of coaches who wish to do the same. In partnership with renowned vocal technician Justin Stoney,  John’s construction of the team began with appointing one of the country's leading corporate speech coaches, Brendan Houdek, as Head Instructor.


Presenting Solutions Logo

“Public” speaking happens in the elevator. It happens on huddles, Zoom calls, and happy hour. It's the fabric of our professional expression. A collection of clear, effective, and confident people creates a culture of efficiency, collaboration, and inspiration. We’d like to share the benefits of what can happen when each member of your team has exceptional communication skills. A few points of passion:

  • It's possible to look forward to public speaking.
  • Executive presence isn’t only for executives.
  • Meetings can be thrilling.
  • Blanking under pressure isn’t inevitable.
  • … Jerry is funny!
  • Sarah is a lion, not a mouse.
  • And most of all, despite being something we’ve done our whole lives, speaking is a skill that everyone can improve through training.

We’re glad you’re interested in this work. However you choose to pursue it, speech coaching is a distinct tool that can create a dramatic point of difference for your team.

We look forward to discussing how we can collaborate.
