Speech and stage coaching is the professional accompaniment, feedback and intervention during the course of speech or dialogue.
It aims to detect psycho-physical habits and interpretative choices that undermine a natural, deep in meaning and wide in variety oral expression. It works as such towards the refinement of listening, the appreciation of written and oral language structures, a sensitization of the speaker in the sense of a self-emotiveness that culminates into pleasure, and therefore toward the maximum impact of speech, always via the initiative of the speaker/interlocutor.
