Introduction to Great Speakers Use Acting Skills with Barbara Kite.

Public Speaking Coaching

Great Speakers are artists!  They know how to create experiences and lasting impressions, using acting skills!  As an actress, coach and keynote speaker, Barbara Kite is the Acting Coach for (great) Speakers.  Using the acting tools she offers, you can lay claim to the  speaker you want to be.

“…go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow…  Tell stories… Write a poem to a friend… Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” – Kurt Vonnegut
