MEGAN HEFFERNAN, SPEECH COACH AND ACTRESS


The following is an excerpt from an interview I did with Megan Heffernan, Founder of Megaphone Communications

Megan is an actress, producer, and public speaking coach with over 25 years of professional experience in virtually every communication medium. Her gift is to inspire others to use their creative expression to find their voice and share their stories.

I wanted to explore what motivated her and to understand the unique value she brings to her public speaking coaching practice. To do so, we dug into her past, to a time when she first found her love for acting and public performance. During our time together, Megan shared an early memory that truly represents the qualities she brings to the work she does today. Her high energy and enthusiasm is contagious. 

"You could plug me into a circuit board and I could light up a city! 

Performing in front if a life audience turns on all of my switches."

When I asked Megan about her experience as a public speaker coach she shared a powerful story of helping someone that used to be petrified to stand up and speak in public find her voice and share her light. A moment of personal transformation that can only take place when we are not limited by our own fears and we allow ourselves to cultivate our creative expression.

"That moment when you find your own voice is freedom. It's ownership. It's a portal that moves the moment. It opens the door to growth and potential. One voice can start a revolution."
