Why Choose Us?
Sims Wyeth & Co. brings a unique blend of experience and strengths

Experience

I am an executive coach, business writer, author, and speaker. I began my adult life as an actor, and taught theater, and voice & speech at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, the Michael Chekhov Studio, the Actors’ and Directors’ Lab, and the University of New Orleans.

My acting experience informs my work with clients. Like actors, speakers need to be stage-worthy, know their material, and create trust and belief in who they are and what they say.

Strengths

I strive to understand the unique challenges that each individual client is facing and develop personalized strategies for each presenter, always taking into account my client's temperament, subject matter, target audience, and the forum in which he or she will speak.

I write a weekly column for Inc.com, and have been published in BusinessWeek, and C2M (Consulting to Management). My newest book, The Essentials of Persuasive Public Speaking, was published in 2014 by W.W. Norton.

Speak to create understanding

Speak to create understanding

When you talk to people who oppose your point of view, choose your words carefully.   I remind you of Goethe’s quote:  “Every word uttered evokes the idea of its opposite.” The odds are high that those on the other side of the argument will reflexively fasten onto an offensive word, which could cause them […]

I believe that scientific medical presentations need to be more dramatic. After all, doctors are talking about life and death. Yet many doctors speak like test pilots: flat as a mashed potato sandwich. It’s the culture of intrepidness, as if all medical professionals were Steady Eddies who stuff fear and face cold, hard facts with […]
