Saskia Shakin


Public Speaking Coach, Saskia Shakin, has been changing the way people look at public speaking for over 30 years.

She believes that ALL speaking is public speaking (unless you are in a closet muttering to yourself), and that everyone is equipped to do it. All that is required is an open heart and an open mind. Her motto is, "If you can speak to one, you can speak to 100." Her approach is simple: storytelling is stronger than fact-finding; and authenticity speaks louder than words.

Her clients have served on the Council of Economic Advisors in the White House, Expert Witnesses in front-page litigation, CEO's in corporate America, and Leaders of Non-Profits, not to mention normal mortals in the Arts, Public Policy, and Philanthropy.

Her book, "More Than Words Can Say: The Making of Inspired Speakers" is a compilation of her adventures in a career that never ceases to surprise her. It can be ordered on her website:
