Testimonials of Sandra Kazan's Speech Coaching
The exercises worked. I was so calm. Relaxed. I actually felt great. First time I wasn’t super nervous.Thank you! I think I did a really good job. Your help made a huge difference!
After just one intensive session of coaching with Sandra before I gave a talk for an audience of creative people and academics, the suggestions and exercises she gave me were a revelation: I overcame my nervousness and delivered the talk with a degree of confidence I’d never before experienced. People came up to me afterwards to compliment me, thanking me for making my points so clearly and persuasively. And I thank Sandra for enabling me to do so!
Sandra, My speech was amazing! I did great! Thank you so much! You helped me tremendously with getting over the fear of talking and embarrassing myself. I was a more confident person than before.Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Sandra has been an excellent coach. She is a specialist of high level with a very comprehensive, thorough, and diligent approach. She has also been a very fine, attentive, and sweet person. Definitely a rare find in NYC where everybody is consumed with themselves.

Sandra Kazan... is simply the best public speaking coach I know.

Sandra was a huge help to me as I prepared for academic presentations and radio appearances. I was amazed how much better my voice sounded after just a few sessions... Additionally, Sandy's manner and techniques made the experience fun. I unequivocally recommend Sandra!!
You are a highly gifted coach and a tremendous encourager. I now have a significantly greater level of confidence and I am amazed at the level of improvement I continue to see each time I speak. The techniques and exercises you taught me are extremely helpful.
I did two events this month and was congratulated for my ability to remain cool, calm, and collected in front of an audience. The event was a hit. I was told I presented the information with impact which captivated my audience. Thanks for your help. Your guidance was instrumental in a successful outcome.
Thank you so much for all your incredible guidance. I would not have had the skill or confidence without your assistance.
I am so blessed to have the opportunity to learn from you. You opened a hidden door for me.
I owe my poise and ability to speak in front of a large audience to you.
Words can't begin to describe the gratitude that I have for Sandra and the work she does. I've struggled my whole life with a voice that was very soft and was tired of people saying that they couldn't hear me. I had always thought that was just the way things were and that nothing could be done about it. Finally at age 27 I got up the courage to call Sandra. I was immediately put at ease by her warm, professional manner and her understanding of what I was going through. We went to work immediately and she taught me the basics, showing me how I was breathing incorrectly and not using my core. We did floor exercises and a bit of yoga to help me find my optimal pitch. By our second session, I was already well on my way to having the stronger and more resonant voice I had always wanted. I learned techniques that I can use every day to sustain my clearer, richer tone. I'm so glad that I decided not to settle for a voice that I didn't love, and am thankful to Sandra for giving me the tools to find the voice I've always envisioned for myself.
...You are a natural teacher... Thank you for helping me bring my skills to a new level...
When I am on the pulpit, I always find myself channeling your teachings - I hear your voice telling me to unlock my knees, to breathe, to firm up my articulation. Your valuable pointers on preaching and insights on sermons have all been a great help...
Finding Sandra was like striking gold. She is the only voice coach who actually did help me reduce my Scandinavian accent and managed to do so in a shockingly short time, but what's more, she helped me take my career as a TV and video talking head and host to a whole other level. With Sandra, I mastered a "barely there" accent, developed my voice quality, and, as we videotaped our classes, learnt how to truly shine on camera, no matter what my topic - not to mention that I had so much fun working with her, I never wanted our classes to end! I use the techniques I learnt from Sandra daily and I also have her on speed dial, as I now never start a new gig without coaching with her first!
Excited but nervous about the upcoming event to introduce the press to my new book 'Designers Here and There: Inside the City and Country Homes of America's Top Decorators' I turned to Sandy for guidance. She gave me excellent exercises to alleviate my jitters and enhance my delivery, and filmed me so that I could improve my presentation. I'd recommend her to anyone anytime!
You are a fabulous perceptive teacher...I'm truly grateful for your patience and kindness..I recommend your classes 100 percent.
I am so grateful for our sessions together. You have taught me so much and it was a genuine privilege to meet such a talented and caring person as yourself. Anyone who works with you and gets to meet you is very lucky.
The skills you taught me continue to inform my rabbinate to the great benefit of my listeners.
It could be a turning point in your life!
