    My daughter Had 1st session with Ian And she enjoyed it.

  • Dawn Gaertner

    Working with Ian Davis has been one of the most beneficial elements in my children’s education. Ian has a way of drawing out students to their full potential. He is able to meet the student where they are and bring them to the next level rather quickly. His expertise and phenomenal personality makes the students comfortable and desirous of working harder. He not only helps students become phenomenal speakers, he does the more important thing. He teaches them to believe what they’re saying. Challenging students to really grasp the depth of the topic, the emotion behind the text, the gravity of the subject, their reason for speaking, Ian gets to the heart of the matter. This is what makes great communicators ... authenticity. The student no longer is afraid of speaking, rather they begin to realize that it’s a calling. I wish there was a higher recommendation level, I would give it. The five children of mine that Ian worked with are more confident people because of their time with him. And if you’re learning to speak for some type of competition, hold your hat because he pretty much brings everybody to the national level.

    When I was in high school, I competed in a national speech and debate league, and I used Called2Communicate to better my speech delivery, presentations, and more. Little did I know how useful the techniques I learned would prove to be in college and beyond! I now work in communications on Capitol Hill, and I still find myself referencing Ian Davis's instructions. Whether you're in high school, a young professional, or a seasoned veteran, you will be able to learn something from Called2Communicate.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We'll have a video discussion to fully understand the student's needs.  If I can help, then we discuss and agree on specific goals, and a plan of action.

The coaching is typically online as most students are too far away.  Some students receive in-person coaching.

We will work with whatever projects/assignments the student wants to use.  If there are none, I'm happy to provide them.

I am a state and national champion in multiple countries in multiple categories of competitive speaking/debating.  I have a 30-year career as a business executive and a professional coach.
