A few brief sessions with Sheila impacted my public speaking immensely. She taught me to think about my audience and break down my thoughts in a more digestible manner. She is one of the most remarkable voice coaches I have worked with. She really took the time to understand my background and give me the most meaningful feedback!

Sheila Dugan Voice & Speech Studio

I began working with Sheila recently to improve my public speaking and voice skills. My career is in sales and I felt I needed professional help to elevate my skills in these areas to stand apart and deliver better presentations.
Sheila is a PRO. It was clear at our first session that she fully understands the technical aspects of how to correctly use one's voice. As well, Sheila has an outstanding feel for what the audience needs from a presenter to deliver stand-out presentations. Sheila's approach is to the point (which I appreciate) while also encouraging. She is very good at quickly identifying technical and stylistic problems so that sessions are well spent on solutions and improvement.
My skills as a presenter have improved greatly as a result of Sheila's training. I also have a clear understanding of how my voice works and how to use it correctly.
There are few true experts in any field of work; Sheila is an expert!

Sheila Dugan was able to diagnose my voice/speech/accent problem and efficiently help with that during the first online session we had together. She identified the challenges I had, and suggested the ways and exercises I could do to remove these challenges, which I did successfully! I am a physician from Europe, who worked in science and healthcare at a well-known and respected institution in the USA for few years. English is not my mother tongue. I had an accent, and was talking more from the throat than the mouth, which was a bit of nuisance during the public talks I needed to deliver. She could understand the anatomy and physiology of how I talk, and use my voice and mouth differently than English native speaker would, hence she showed me how I did it differently and how could I improve my voice and speech while talking publicly in English. The online session was recorded, so anytime I wanted to practice more or something new, I could go back to it and exercise. Very helpful and efficient ! Recommend her also to expats who live in the US, and need the diagnosis and management of their voice or speech.

Sheila Dugan provided extraordinary assistance in helping me to refine my accent and articulation. My native language is Spanish, but I have lived all over the world and acquired an unusual accent. Previous attempts to improve my articulation failed when the instructors were unable to discern the origin of my accent. Sheila’s method is highly personalized, so my unusual accent was not a problem for her. From the instant we met, she used her approach to help me clarify my goals and what I needed to do to achieve them. I was very impressed by the depth of her knowledge and her ability to communicate exactly what was needed. In addition to the personal coaching, she provided written materials that were very helpful. I teach at a university and my students noticed the changes in my articulation immediately. I had given up on clarifying my accent until I met Sheila. She is an amazing professional and I give her my highest

Sheila is an AMAZING Public Speaking Coach! She has really helped boost my confidence when it comes to speaking, which has always been one of my biggest fears. When I attend an event and I’m asked to speak on stage or when I chat with a friend on a podcast, I’m comfortable speaking my truth! Sheila really listens and points out exactly where I can improve, allowing me to become more clear and concise when talking to others.

I was referred to Sheila Dugan by another Executive Development Coach. When I told my wife that I had been referred to a voice coach, she informed me that Sheila Dugan was who she worked with concerning her singing voice a couple years back. Those two positive referrals gave me terrific confidence in Sheila’s abilities, but great reviews also set one up for high expectations. Well, my expectations were exceeded. I love that Sheila listens, asks pertinent questions, and then provides no-nonsense advice. I absolutely appreciate that attitude. We had four sessions and I will probably reach back out for a refresher in a month or so. She is fast, efficient, and an expert consultant who is task focused to get her clients where they need to be. I am an experienced, hard working professional who is difficult to impress. I love having a high quality resource like Sheila Dugan in my toolbelt. Thank you, Sheila!

I am a Research Scientist specializing in planetary geochemistry and carbon sequestration and was recently asked to give a speech at graduation for women in prison. I reached out to Sheila for help improving the speech to ensure that the message I wanted to share was conveyed in such a manner that all educational levels were able to take something I had to say, apply it to their own life and learn from my experience. Sheila was instrumental in helping me reword scientific portions of my speech so it was more easily digestible. Her ability to break down my speech and illustrate the importance of emphasizing and pausing at key moments, really displayed her knowledge of how to deliver a great speech. She is an amazing teacher who is able to constructively provide critical feedback. She drastically improved what I had initially written. I highly recommend Sheila for your public speaking needs!

I can't thank Sheila Dugan enough for giving me the vocal presence and presentation skills that I have to work with now. I went from sweating over "no-camera" Teams meetings, to proving my ability to lead and present in my company's meetings within a month of working with Sheila. I can't personally think of a class with a higher career ROI, highly recommend.

Sheila was phenomenal. I felt at ease with her immediately. I utilized her expertise to become a better speaker and communicator, both professionally and personally. After just a few sessions, I as well as others, noticed a big difference. I highly recommend Sheila's services. She has a wide range of knowledge, expertise and experience to address and improve a very wide range of issues.

Sheila Dugan took the time to carefully prepare for the public speaking training she gave our participants so that she could really individualize her coaching to be as effective as possible. Her one-on-one coaching was extremely insightful and very powerful. Sheila pushed our participants to be their best and didn’t settle for less. Everyone said they received very useful advice that they will carry on with them for all their future public speaking engagements. We will definitely have her back. I would recommend Sheila to anyone wanting to hone their skills. We were lucky to find her!

Dear Sheila,

At CEAM’s August board meeting earlier this week I gave a report on our parent training that included a glowing section on you, your training and how you connected to our parents. In a nutshell, I told them how amazing you are. I must have really sold you because one of my board members, has asked for your contact information. This man is a great guy who has served on the CEAM board the whole six years I’ve been employed here.

So our board member is copied on this email and I hope you will both consider yourselves introduced.
