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.

Old-fashioned lecture halls generally had one aisle down the middle of the room. And old-fashioned speakers were trained to develop their side of an argument, then give voice to the other side, before coming to their final synthesis. These speakers stood on one side of the stage to make their case, moved to the opposite […]

Say your name and tell us some things.” Ugh. Another slog through a forest of biographical facts and resume trivia. The first guy […]
