Target your audience and articulate your message with confidence and authenticity.
Communication is the key to developing and maintaining personal and professional relationships for a lifetime. It is a critical component in defining an effective leader.
It’s not just what you choose to say but how you say it.
Your voice and body speak louder than words.
Your professional presence can inspire others and change outcomes. Developing your individual potential and structuring your performance teaches you to be mindful, reflective, and vulnerable – core traits of Authentic Communication.
Vincent has been a tremendous help not only with my public speaking and presentation skills, but also with my executive presence and overall leadership capabilities. Through my work with Vincent, I have become a more effective communicator and confident leader. My meetings are always engaging and leave me with something specific to put into practice.

My name is VINCENT METALLO, as an executive communications coach, I help highly skilled professionals find their voice and deliver their message.
With over 25 years as a professional musician and coach, I have developed a process of preparation, practice, and performance for leaders in every industry who seek to communicate their messages to a variety of audiences.
Executing clear strategies of observing, listening, and responding to set the pace, shape, and sound of the message.
Synthesizing these techniques is the key to mastering the art of authentic communication.
Vincent has worked closely with me across a range of skills from enunciation to movement to narrative succinctness that has dramatically improved the quality of the presentations I design, both one-on-one and to 8,000 person auditoriums.

Listen and Observe
Good communicators are also good listeners. When you listen well, you gain a clear understanding. Listening fosters trust, respect, and openness. Active listening is an integral part of coaching others. Ask questions that open the door to what people really think and feel. Pay close attention to what is said — and what’s left unsaid.
Find Your Voice
Are you sounding like someone you’re not? Who you are, where you come from, and what you value must be the essence of your communication. Be vulnerable and share your authentic self. Don’t disguise yourself. People will never willingly follow someone they feel is inauthentic.
Communicating information, thoughts, and ideas clearly, and frequently, provides consistency. Keep processes open and transparent, and find ways to help smooth the path of communication for your team or organization. Take the time to connect with your community.
I highly recommend Vincent Metallo. I engaged Vincent to help with both virtual presentations and executive presence. He was able to coach me not only on the presentation itself but also on voice, variety of inflection and tone, and how to adjust my current skill set. Through his coaching plan, I was able to find my voice, learn new body language skills via zoom, and additional tools in telling my story. Several people have provided positive feedback and I can certainly notice the difference in my overall communication.
