“Loved the community feel of the Inner Circle. It was such a magical experience to see women supporting women in such a tangible, authentic way.”

Annabelle A.


“I have found a community of supportive, like-minded women who I know I will keep in touch with.”

Valerie C.


Imagine what it would be like to...

Join an intimate, judgment-free community of women who want to explore the communication and leadership challenges we ALL face, but don't talk enough about.


Have a safe space to receive feedback and individualized coaching, so you can better handle the tricky dynamics you're navigating in real-time.


Gain a trustworthy sounding board of women from diverse leadership backgrounds, who will not only validate your experiences (because they've been there!), but are eager to provide you with the practical wisdom and encouragement you need to succeed!

Well guess what my friend?

The Inner Circle will be all of this for you, and more!

Here's what you'll receive inside The Inner Circle

(Opening back up for enrollment in early 2023)

Instead of moving through a set curriculum each week (like we do in PUP), the format will be more theme-based and exploratory, like our PUP graduate coaching calls.

You can expect LOTS of individualized coaching and community support.

Each week, you'll be invited to bring a "hard thing" (i.e., a question, a challenge, or an insecurity) related to that week's theme, and through rich discussion, role-playing, and skill-based coaching, your wise inner circle peers and I will support you in making this hard thing a whole lot easier.


90-Minute Coaching Calls Filled with Rich Discussion, Individualized Coaching & Skill-Building


A Curated Resource Hub with Key Books, Articles, Podcast Episodes, and Clips (which will only expand over time!)


A Private Text Thread (where you can receive ongoing support without any pressure to be a responsive texter!)


Lifetime Access to a Recording Library with all Coaching Calls


This Inner Circle is about more than just building confidence and advancing your skills...

Frequently Asked Questions


(like Brenda without the "da") and I'm a communication coach, educator, and secret weapon to thousands of leaders, emerging leaders, and business owners around the world.

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 expertise and staying true to yourself in all of your interactions.

Why am I so passionate about this work? Because I've been there…

From competing in audition rooms and performing on national stages to coaching executives in c-suites and speaking at major conferences, I've experienced the anxiety that comes with putting yourself out there and the intense fear of not knowing how it'll go.


I use SelfSpoken techniques to turn my own panic into power and everyday pressures into presence.


Like all of us, I'm a work in progress.


But when the waves of adrenaline or the whispers of self-doubt inevitably flood my system, I find so much comfort in knowing how to tap into my own, authentic sweet spot:


That empowering and fulfilling experience of grounding myself under pressure, landing my ideas with confidence, and staying true to who I am.
