You're just a landline guy/gal living in an insta-world.  Social Media can feel impersonal, foreign and scary. Or maybe you aren't fearful, but unsure where to start. If "they've" ever told you to...

  • "Build a platform”
  • "Connect with the online community”
  • "Tweet, Instagram, Facebook LIVE and PERISCOPE IF ANYONE STILL DOES!"

Contact us through your dial up and we will help you accomplish YOUR goals in YOUR voice.

  • Do I really have a story to tell?
  • How do I get people to listen?

Yes, but how? “Picture them naked” has been a public speaking tip that is not helpful for anybody. To truly KNOW your audience takes much more mental energy than just writing a speech or preparing Powerpoint. If you are:

  • A first time or seasoned communicator engaging a new audience
  • Wondering if that dad-joke is going to work with college students
  • Curious if CEO's like being forced to do trust falls
  • Or anything audience related...

...Close your eyes, we got you!

  • Hate watching yourself on camera
  • Want to truly connect and “be yourself” to your online community
  • Need to be professional as you pitch an idea or product
  • Feel like you don't know where you should land on the friend to professional scale to best connect with an audience?

"The red light is on, are you recor.... oh you are." Let's chat.

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.

Joy is a great leader and remarkable listener, laser-focused on helping me grow. She went above and beyond with creative insights, pruning questions, and practical resources—her consulting gave me peace, clarity, and a deeper vision of where I need to go.

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.
