Using the Punchline services was great! Joy asked some thought provoking questions that really allowed me to focus on what was most important. I will definitely use their services again.

Working with Joy was the best thing I did to prepare for my book launch. She helped me distill my message for a radio audience and taught me practical, specific tips to make the most of these interviews. She was also personable and enthusiastic, which made the experience all the more comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend Punchline Speakers!

My experience working with Michael was FANTASTIC and my whole message approach was elevated by leaps and bounds, even from the eyes of my toughest/most helpful critic (my husband!) He even helped me find the joke that was just waiting to be inserted as a perfect diffuser right at the beginning. I’m SO grateful and can’t wait to connect again with you and your team. THANK YOU!!! It was truly a game-changer for me and will continue to impact how I approach my speaking!

As a journalist and videographer moving into the nonprofit field, I really wanted to expand my public speaking skills but had no idea where to start. Joy was incredibly helpful in helping me write and execute a talk, but also in helping me understand the business aspects of moving toward a freelance model as a videographer.

Every outline, talk or pitch I brought to her, she had new ideas and ways of changing it that enhanced what I wanted to say without taking away from my core message or voice. Joy has a unique gift in meeting people right where they are at. Even if you’re brand new to public speaking or don’t have any gigs set up, I’d highly recommend working with her to get started on refining your message.

A session with Punchline provided just the help I needed while filming an online course. When I wasn’t really feeling like myself, I scheduled a call and received practical feedback and a plan for how to be natural and connective on camera. I walked away feeling more confident about how to connect with my audience, what to do with my hands, and tips for striking the balance between friendly and professional.

I really can’t say thank you enough for your help with my development as a speaker. From speaking tips to my website and social media, this has been just the boost I needed. The time line you created is helping me reach the larger goal that I have had for so long and I’m excited to see where this takes me.
