How I help

I work small businesses, thought leaders, and subject-matter experts to expand their influence through improved communication. I partner with them to develop the right message for their audience—whether building a new website, authoring an article, or preparing for a big presentation or interview. My clients are entreprenurs, students, executives at Fortune 100 companies, and professors at the nation's leading academic institutions. They have appeared on the TEDxBoise stage and been featured in magazines such as Training + Development and Leadership Excellence. Each client is important to me and receives the same high-quality service and attention.

Your results

Some of my clients are already competent communicators, and just need an extra set of eyes on their content or a few tools to enhance delivery. Others haven't the foggiest idea where to begin writing, are paralyzed with fear of public speaking, or need to delegate the task of crafting a message so they can focus on their core business. Whichever the case is for you, hiring a speaker coach, writer, or editor ensures you will deliver your best message to your target audience. 

What my clients are saying

I was able to work with Kirsten to prepare for my TEDxBoise talk. Kirsten provided exactly the support I needed. Our meetings were tailored specifically to me. I appreciated that she didn't have a one-size-fits-all approach. I felt that Kirsten really dialed into my strengths and helped me to formulate the message I wanted to spread.

Wow! What a difference some coaching and guidance can make. I had the privilege of working with Kirsten preparing for a big talk. However, after multiple sessions working through the ideas, editing, practicing and coaching, the final presentation was substantially better due to her encouragement and assistance.

Ms. Holmberg … demonstrated a true commitment to get it right and the discussions we had with her during the content development sessions were not only enjoyable but forced us to review our security philosophies critically which led to improvement of some internal concepts.

—David L. Johnson, President, ITG Consultants

Although Kirsten is not an expert in our industry, she provided relevant and insightful comments. She improved the professionalism and feel of the website, while still maintaining our vision to reach our target audience.

Kirsten is not only a capable writer and editor, she is a great coach in the writing process. She imparted invaluable coaching which set our trajectory toward a wise writing process. She is diligent, forthright, wise, true to her word and quick to size things up. 

—Jon Strain, Area Director, Search Ministries

Kirsten's expertise and insights regarding speaking and communication were invaluable to my class. Not only did she encourage the students with practical public speaking tips that gave them more confidence, she provided them with the challenge to find their true voice.
