Let's do this!
The 8-week coaching program that will empower you to

Embody your authentic leadership presence, and communicate confidently under pressure.

Does this sound like you?

The most frustrating part is when, deep down, I know that I know my sh*t but my words aren't landing the way I'd like them to.

I don't feel so nervous when I'm presenting pre-prepared materials, but when I'm on the spot, I tense up.

I often know what I want to say, but I have a hard time saying it clearly and concisely.

I have definitely had experiences where I straight up blacked out when presenting or speaking up in a meeting.

My inner critic can be SO loud that it becomes challenging to hear myself think and trust that I'm coming across how I want to.

Yup, That's me...


Well, you're not alone.

Our Fall cohort kicks off September 10th through October 30th, 2024

Meet Hannah

We homed in on a situation where I needed to push back on someone and disagree. I walked out feeling so much more empowered - like I knew how to handle it going forward.

I'm Brenne,

(like Brenda without the "da") and I'm a big-hearted working mom, communication coach, and "secret weapon" to hundreds of ambitious, down-to-earth women.

My goal, and "the why" behind everything I do, is to empower you to show up (and speak up!) as the you, you most want to be.

Through practical skill-building and a holistic approach to coaching, I'm here to help you find that sweet spot between conveying your credibility and staying true to yourself in all of your interactions.

Outside of work, I enjoy few things more than long, delicious meals with friends, traveling with my husband Eli, and cracking up with my daughter, Sage. 

What if...

You could trust yourself to articulate your ideas more clearly and confidently when it mattered most?

Whether you're speaking up in a meeting, having a check-in with your boss, or presenting to an audience...

What if...

You had a clear roadmap for how to work on the vague, but vital pieces of your professional development (like "having more executive presence" or "being more succinct" or "speaking with more confidence") 

So you could let go of the endless cycle of hustling for approval and instead embody the fullness of who you are as a leader and a perfectly, imperfect human being.

And what if...

You were part of a small (but mighty!) community of other big-hearted go-getters who not only want to build these skills alongside you, but are determined to help you step into the next level version of you!

A community that holds space for you to gain self-awareness, experiment, and expand into the powerful communicator you were born to be. 

Well... all of this is possible for you!

I'm telling you. I've helped hundreds learn how to build the skills necessary to show up (and speak up!) with more authentic confidence by way of this Presence Under Pressure roadmap and extraordinary community.

Because here's the truth. Those uneasy feelings that come with putting yourself out there and wanting to make a good impression have nothing to do with how much you've prepared, how much you know, or how capable you are.

Meet Valerie

I found it to be a very safe space to give and receive feedback in a meaningful way.

"I cannot recommend this experience and investment in yourself enough. Presence Under Pressure has given me the training and space to show up in conversations and meetings and in high-stakes situations in a more authentic and confident way."

- Audrey B.

Can I tell you a secret?

If you want to convey your expertise, while letting your natural personality shine, all you have to do is:

  • Understand your own physiological response to pressure-and learn practical tools for dialing down nerves

  • Cultivate an empowered mindset-and let go of the impulse to prove yourself

  • Embody the qualities you want others to see in you-and ditch the habits that aren't serving you!

  • Be intentional about the energy you bring into a room

  • Tailor your message so it's clear, succinct, and valuable to your audience

This 8-week intensive will provide you with the exact tools and coaching you need to dial down nerves, land clear, impactful messages, and get others to see you the way you deserve to be seen!

"Brenne is a life-changer. These are skills that everyone needs in order to navigate today's challenging work environments. Also, the fact that I got to do something for myself and make the time... it was a really worthwhile thing to do and I can't wait to continue learning with this community!"

- Ileana M.

Ready to start showing up to all your meetings, check-ins, and presentations as the you, you most want to be? Whether they're virtual or in-person?


8 targeted group coaching calls

I can't say enough good things about this course and especially about Brenne!

Brenne will teach you how small tweaks in your communication style can make worlds of difference in improving your credibility and how you come across. The groups are small and intimate, allowing for plenty of individual attention from Brenne and the opportunity to learn from your fellow group members. This course is for everyone, regardless of whether you typically communicate one-to-one or one-to-many.

Run, don't walk to sign up for this course!

Course Overview

Here's what we'll cover:

Week One

The exact steps to center yourself under pressure

So that when those nerves inevitably flood your system, you know exactly what to do to get your mind, body, and voice to cooperate with you instead of against you!

Week Two

The science-backed formula for exuding confidence

Hint: it's all about how you carry yourself, the signals you send through your physical mannerisms, eye contact, and vocal inflections. Warning: this module will make you a tad uncomfortable because it'll force you to become aware of your own unique "ticks" and habits. But as every graduate of this program will tell you, it's one of the most illuminating ways to elevate your communication skills and enhance your presence in a room. Once you're intimately aware of your own body language, you get to decide which habits to ditch and which to leverage, so that you're more in charge of the impression you're making on others.

Working with Brenne as your coach cannot be described accurately - it's like talking to your best friend and cheerleader, who wants the utmost best for you and actively provides feedback and challenges you towards that goal.

- Vanessa A.

Week Three

the integration: Letting your body talk

We'll practice integrating the skills we covered in Weeks 1 and 2. This is where you will feel the transformative impact of combining self-regulation skills (grounding yourself on the inside) WITH embodiment skills (signaling the qualities you want coming across on the outside). Whether you're interacting with your boss, conveying credibility in client meetings, responding to questions concisely, or engaging an audience with confidence— we'll make sure you know how to free up your self-protective instincts to tense and control, so that you can more freely and authentically express yourself on the spot.

Week Four

How to "just be yourself"

Because it's much easier said than done. And in new or intimidating situations, we often adapt who we are to what we think others want or expect us to be. It's a survival instinct meant to ensure our place in a tribe. Together, we'll unpack this conundrum and practice concrete strategies for staying true to yourself (and your authentic personality) when the pressure's on.

Week Five

The key to getting out of your head and inspiring others

We'll dive deeper into some of the specific dynamics and interactions that trip you up, and we'll leverage the power of intention to make sure you're clear on what mindset and energy you need to bring to the situation, so you can remain clear-headed, empowered, and as effective as you set out to be.

This may have been my favorite - Brenne's feedback was so helpful and encouraging, and this is when I felt my confidence really start to grow.

- Renée P.

Week Six

A little-known secret I call "reverse-engineering"

Most people think about their upcoming talk or presentation in terms of what they want to say. In this session, you'll learn how to start your preparation with what your audience needs to hear. Get ready to organize your points more strategically, spend way less time preparing, and ultimately speak in a way that's easy to follow and hard to forget.

Week Seven

The framework for organizing a compelling message on the fly

So you hook 'em from the beginning and have them thinking to themselves "woah, who's that" by the time you're done. I'll help you integrate all the skills we've covered, by giving you a speaking prompt and challenging you to deliver a mini presentation on the spot. (You won't believe what you're capable of by this point!)

Week Eight

Putting it all together

It's my job to give you the tools, but it's your job to go kick ass. Which means you need to know how to keep practicing these skills on your own so they stick for the long-haul. Together, we'll come up with an action plan for turning these tools into habits.

Meet Maria

I felt that it was life-changing.

If anything, these skills have become even more important as we've shifted to remote work.

Let's be real: it was important to know how to communicate clearly and present confidently over zoom before the pandemic. But now, it's an essential skillset.

In order to keep business alive, nurture your relationships, and serve your network, you've gotta be able to translate strong in-person communication skills to the screen.

The beauty of joining us weekly over Zoom for this 8-week intensive is that you'll get to flex your virtual communication muscles in real-time.

Not only will you learn a ton of practical skills you can apply to your in-person presentations and interactions, but you'll also get to work on refining your virtual communication style.

"I don't think I've ever gotten so much out of a course or training ever."

- Julie R.


Think: How to...

  • Set yourself up in the frame - so you can have the closest thing to an in-person conversation

  • Organize your talking points so they're clearer and more concise - given our shrunken attention spans

  • Engage a virtual audience - without becoming a voice they want to mute

  • And so much more

"Brenne challenged me to completely rethink my approach to communicating and public speaking, helping me to dial down my nerves and enabling me to become a more authentic, confident, and effective communicator. The work is not always comfortable--and certainly not easy--but you will notice a change immediately. And when others, too, begin to notice that change in you, well, that's a game-changer."

"I loved the virtual nature of the course. Even before COVID my team was bi-coastal and worked remotely on Zoom, so our course really simulated what my everyday work is like! Also, it eliminated travel time between a physical class and home/work, so it made it super easy to just set aside an hour for the class and then go back to whatever you were doing."



I only have a couple seats left

Turn everyday pressure into
grounded presence + personal power

Yep, even if you're not sure what conversations or presentations are on the horizon, or which content you'll need to prepare.

Uh huh - doesn't matter what you do or how long you've been doing it. It'll be a wonderful mix of professionals from all different industries and levels of experience. These skills apply to every kind of person in every kind of role and part of the magic will be learning from each other!

Ohhh yeah, especially if speaking publicly makes you break out in a cold sweat. Nothing makes me happier than watching people go from "hating public speaking" to genuinely enjoying the experience.

I'll be honest...

This Presence Under Pressure program will give you a lot to think about and practice. Like any intensive, it'll be challenging at times. You'll have to put in the practice to make these skills stick.

But I promise that by the time you've completed this program, you'll know exactly what you need to continue working on and HOW to keep working on it.

And because you'll have a clear vision for how you want to show up and share your ideas in the world, I'll be here to support you in actualizing that vision. You'll have me and the SelfSpoken team checking in on you and cheering you on every step of the way.

So what do you say? Are you in?

Imagine if...
  • You didn't have to guess whether or not you'd be able to communicate yourself clearly and confidently.

  • You didn't have to force or fake your way through intimidating interactions, but instead you knew the exact steps to take to get your mind, body and voice to cooperate with you instead of against you.

  • You knew what you needed to say and how to say it in a clear and impactful way - no matter who you're speaking to or how complex your content is.

  • You were more in the driver's seat of how you came across and could persuade and inspire people the way you know you're capable of persuading and inspiring people.
