FIVE Strategies to become a Powerful Speaker and Effective Storyteller


You will learn how to… CRAFT a dynamic message, BOOST your confidence, CAPTURE your audience, DELIVER with power and FREE yourself of FEAR


  • Maybe your job is asking you to do more public speaking.
  • Or you secretly dream of rocking a stage and sharing your personal message.
  • Maybe you’re struggling with how to confidently pitch your business.
  • Or maybe you feel you’re not quite nailing your message in your digital platform– like social media, podcasts or YouTube.

It can be nerve-wracking trying to figure it all out on your own. And the truth is, improving your public speaking can help you in nearly every facet of life.

My career has been a journey, and thankfully, I’ve learned my way through public speaking both live on-air and at various live events.  Now, I want to use what I’ve learned to help you speak with influence— whether for a business presentation, large speaking event, digital platform, networking opportunity and/or classroom.

I am an Emmy and Murrow award-winning journalist, former morning TV anchor for a #1 rated show and public speaker.

I have literally made a living, using my voice and writing skills.

And I have so much to share with you.


Yes, there are plenty of busy seminars and big conferences you could go to for your business or brand, but none of them will offer the intimacy of this private VIP setting that really unpacks what’s holding you back from taking your public speaking to the next level.

I only invite eight people into the workshop so it remains intimate, offers high impact and an action oriented experience.

You will be able to implement the strategies we learn immediately. This workshop is designed to help you get farther– faster.


It’s a six-hour workshop created to help you learn quickly and easily absorb top strategies.

Sneak Peek Inside My Workshops…


What people are saying about my workshop…

“The first word that comes to mind when I think of this workshop is ‘wow’ … I know we all left here with so much more than we came… I thought about wanting to elevate and propel my gifts and desires and talents forward and I’m leaving here truly empowered and excited and ready to do that… so if you’re thinking about attending one of her workshops or hiring her as a coach…  I would highly highly recommend you to go ahead and take that leap, take that jump..  I’m telling you it’s going to be so worth it.” -Rebekah Sharpe, Business Development Specialist at Ford Motor Company
“This was an incredible workshop.  I’m leaving away with public speaking skills to practice and I’m comfortable with facing some of the anxieties that I’ve been challenged by.  I just feel encouraged to move forward, to have the confidence to share what I want to do… it’s just been phenomenal.”-Dr. Erv Dyer, Senior Editor of Pitt magazine (University of Pittsburgh)
“I am very comfortable with public speaking having done it thousands of times in the last 25 years as a radio host, marketing director, theater actor and more.  However, I came into the seminar open and ready to learn – something told me that Bofta was going to give me way more than I expected and she did.  If you come into a Bofta Yimam seminar expect to be amazed.  You will not only learn what you came there for but you find that many other areas you didn’t even expect to be impacted are greatly influenced by her.  For me, I came expecting to tweak my skills in public speaking positively – I knew I had mastered the skill with all my experience but I am always learning and growing so I thought that I’d make slight improvements in that area and while I feel I did accomplish just that I found that Bofta also impacted me in:
*Success skills – she is a true coach in how you need to approach ANY improvement you wish to make by operating from a solid foundation of repeatable processes that you have to consciously work on.  I had known that but she has a way of laser-focusing you.
*Customer service – Watching how she planned every single detail from the personal one on one interview she did prior to the event all the way to the way the day ran and then the communication she offered post-event should be a playbook for any company or person that wishes to be better in making their customers feel special.  I’d hire Bofta just for her skills in how to handle customers alone.  She truly sets herself apart and makes each client feel as if they are the most important person in the world.  You will truly get more – way more – than you ever could have imagined if you take a seminar from Bofta Yimam.” -Jeff B., Digital Podcast and Sales Team Leader
“I loved the workshop, you’re so easy to talk to and work with.  You made us dig deep, it was truly a breakthrough.”-Bibi Hill, Founder of Join Us Girls, Inc.
“One of the best decisions I made all year was calling Bofta to help revise my pitch. I’ve been running this business for years, and am enrolled in a high level marketing course, in addition to being a confident speaker, performer, and coach.  However, I was too overwhelmed with serving past clients to reach a bigger audience, including those who can afford my full performance and workshop packages. Although many programs will help you start a business and book your first speaking gig, few will help a seasoned professional break through to the next level. Those who do, tend to teach you all kinds of things that work for business in general, instead of helping YOU with YOUR immediate priorities. In just two sessions I was able to reframe my entire business story and pitch, so that every single piece is relevant to my IDEAL CLIENTS. Less than a week after our sessions, I’ve not only gotten through to a dozen ideal clients, but I did it by speaking to a previous client who I never pitched to correctly! I thought Bofta would help me revise a written pitch for new clients – and she did – but the real benefit was she helped me see how close I already am to where I want to be!”  -Khaiim Kelly, American hip hop artist and public speaker
