Anything is possible when you have self-awareness, practical skills, and an unshakeable belief in yourself….
A holistic, step-by-step program to help big-hearted go-getters overcome speaking anxiety, own their voice, and step into real, undeniable confidence from the inside out.
Tell me if this sounds familiar…
I feel like people don't always see the me I want them to see-especially in professional settings, where I feel that pressure to prove that I know what I'm talking about.
I tend to ramble when I'm not sure how I want to respond.
Sometimes I feel myself getting really nervous, and then I struggle to control my breath and get stuck in my own head.
When I'm put on the spot or asked tough questions, sometimes I draw a blank or clam up.
I'm afraid of messing up or sounding dumb-especially in front of clients, senior leadership, or hiring managers!
I can sometimes second-guess myself, thinking 'crap, what the hell do I know!?'. It's a struggle because I allow it to influence my thoughts (and actions) at times….
Well guess what, my friend?
You are not alone.
I am right there with you, and so are the thousands of big-hearted go-getters I've had the privilege of working with.
Brenne's coaching is spot on! I walked away with so many nuggets of wisdom that are immediately actionable. I came into this program focused on improving my speaking skills-what I found was a holistic program... helping me to embrace my value as a powerful woman who has so much to bring to others.
Before, I felt like I was never able to fully articulate my message the way I REALLY wanted to. But now, I have so many amazing tools, tips and frameworks to use! It's a really beautiful feeling to finally be able to articulate my thoughts with confidence the way I've always longed to.
Here's what you'll learn inside
The Confident Communicator…
Getting to Know Nerves & Self-Doubt
When adrenaline strikes, how intimately do you know what actually goes on inside your body? And I'm not just talking about those high-stakes moments where you're expected to dazzle an audience... I'm talking about those everyday experiences of being "on the spot" and having to prove you know what you're talking about.
Because once you understand *exactly* what's triggering your nervous system on a physiological level-and how to move through this (absolutely healthy!) chemical reaction in a way that's practical and, dare I say, freeing-you'll realize that what's keeping you from showing up as your best self is not that you're "crazy" or "not confident enough." It's just your survival instincts doing their thing!
By the end of this module, we'll turn your fight-or-flight instincts into practical skills you can use to dial down nerves on the inside, and exude genuine ease on the outside.
Exuding Confidence From the Inside Out
Once you know what's going on inside your mind and body when you're nervous, it's time to move your focus outward. We'll take a close look at the signals you're sending through your body language, vocal inflections, and overall pacing during your everyday interactions, and start to create greater awareness of how you carry yourself and the qualities you project when you speak.
Warning: this module will make you a tad uncomfortable because it'll force you to recognize your own unique "tics" and habits. But as every student of mine will tell you, it's the most essential exercise for elevating your communication skills and enhancing your presence in a room.
In this module, you'll evaluate your communication skills with a guided action challenge and self-assessment exercise. You'll determine which unconscious habits are no longer serving you, and which 3 key skills you need to integrate in order to embody the qualities you want others to see in you.
Cultivating Authentic Self-Trust
Ready to tap into your authentic communication style and speak from a genuinely empowered place? We're gonna dig into the practical mindset shifts you need to make if you're ready to stop proving yourself, pleasing others, and playing small.
First, we'll dig into how you can identify your unique driving values. Once you understand what they are and why they resonate, you'll learn to leverage your chosen values in all your communications, so you can stop abandoning yourself (and your ideas!) and start trusting yourself to speak from a grounded, self-honoring place.
The Keys to Articulating Yourself Like a Pro
Inside this final module, you'll step into your full power with some practical messaging frameworks.
We'll tackle how to introduce yourself (and what you do) like a boss-whether you're interviewing for a job, meeting a new client, or putting yourself out there in an even bigger way. I'll also walk you through my 5-step formula for outlining any presentation in half the time, but with double the impact.
Ultimately, you'll walk away with a clear action plan for how to continue elevating your speaking skills (and listening skills!) in a way that feels authentic and empowering!

You want to put your best self forward...
and make a strong impression on others. And not just in high-stakes situations like when you're public speaking, "pitching" or interviewing... but also in your day-to-day meetings when you've gotta think on the fly and articulate yourself clearly without...
There's something that keeps you from taking up space, owning your sh*t, and projecting your best self.
That pang of uneasiness when you're suddenly on the spot
Those whispers of self-doubt when all eyes turn to you
That shaky, vulnerable feeling of putting yourself out there…
This discomfort has nothing to do with how much you've prepared, how much you know, or how capable you are.
You already know what you're talking about. You know how much value you bring to the table. And you know how big of an impact you can make…
So what's the deal?
Why do you start second-guessing or "get in your head" when you're speaking up in certain situations?
I'll tell ya...
your nervous system is programmed to protect you when it senses that you're being singled out
When you become the center of attention and you're suddenly "on the spot," your primal, fight-or-flight instincts are wired to kick in-making you feel all kinds of fear and self-doubt.
You're not crazy for tensing up or getting in your head when it's your turn to speak.
And no, you're not missing some gene, or innate talent that would enable you to access confidence on-demand…
You're just a human being, trying to stay alive and out of danger.
Instead of working with your fight-or-flight response, you've been conditioned to retreat, play small, and abandon yourself alltogether when the pressure's on.
HOW ANNABELLE LEVELED UP HER COMMUNICATION SKILLS WITH THE CONFIDENT COMMUNICATOR
Can you imagine what it would feel like to be able to:
Dial down nerves and center yourself "on-demand" so you feel more in control of your own experience, and the impression you're making on others?
Embody the qualities you want to project, like trustworthiness and credibility-without faking or forcing anything?
Be more present-and less in your head-so that you can truly hear and inspire the people you're speaking to?
Well... all of this is possible for you!
I'm telling you. I've helped thousands learn how to build the skills necessary to show up (and speak up!) with more authentic confidence by way of The Confident Communicator curriculum.
Brenne gave me the tools to project myself in a way that is authentic but optimized-the best possible version of me. This included everything from my body language on Zoom, to how I can speak with intention, and tools for keeping my audience front and center. I've noticed a subtle change in the way colleagues react to me, and significantly less pushback on my ideas and thoughts than before. I've also felt more confident in my interactions, which further enhances my ability to communicate successfully.
If you want to...
Communicate more confidently, own your power, and let your natural personality shine, all you have to do is build self-awareness, integrate learnable skills, and be more intentional about how you're showing up.
A holistic, step-by-step program

This self-guided course and resource library

Consider this the elevator to take your confidence to the next level, both personally and professionally.
"I have seen HUGE improvements in the way I am perceived and my ability to quickly adapt from meeting to meeting. I had the opportunity to practice the lessons daily, seeing real time progress... I strongly believe that the large project I'm currently leading has gained so much momentum by way of being able to practice these skills in real time. Plus, I was able to apply everything I've learned to an intense interviewing process, which just resulted in my being promoted to a Senior Director role!"
We're gonna dig deep, ditch old habits, build practical skills, and firm up an unshakeable trust in yourself.
And you know what else?
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? Are you ready to seize the opportunities in front of you and actually enjoy putting yourself out there?
At first, I was very uncomfortable in high stakes communications with my bosses and other people whose approval I really wanted. After this experience, I am definitely more confident, intentional, and clear in my communications…I definitely feel more empowered.
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!
I learned so much about myself as a human being: biologically, philosophically and relationally... I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I love the easy-to-recall tips and tricks to keep in mind before my communications. I know that great communication is a lifelong practice, but now I can recognize when I'm presenting my best self, and have the tools to keep improving.
One of the most valuable investments I've made in myself in recent memory! I'm not just getting better, but building a stronger foundation that will serve me in years to come. I've also been able to help more junior women at my company, and I love that I can pass on my learnings through mentorship, which is something that's also incredibly important to me.
Brenne challenged me to completely rethink my approach to 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.
