D’Arcy Webb – a.k.a the Speech Diva – is the Head of Voice Training for Heroic Public Speaking Worldwide. For more than two decades, she’s helped actors, performers, corporate executives, authors and speakers use their voices to connect with audiences around the world with power, eloquence and heart.
As a member of the voice and speech faculty at the University of Arts in Philadelphia and Drexel University, D’Arcy works with hundreds of new and seasoned performers to make their words resonate with clarity, precision and confidence.
Keynote speaker and retired TEDx Cambridge Executive Producer, Tamsen Webster, calls D’Arcy’s work “magic.” “She produces instantaneous yet lasting effects,” Tamsen says, “All while being the kind of person you want to hug (and do) or could cry in front of (and do).”
D’Arcy’s love of language is contagious. She believes every word is a story in itself. Her favorite words are diaphanous, ephemeral and squat. After just one session with D’Arcy, clients and students discover a passion for the power of the spoken word they never thought possible.
Amy Port is the Co-Founder of Heroic Public Speaking, where her work extends from the execution of corporate training packages, to development of CEO keynotes, private master classes and coaching.
After earning her MFA in Acting from The Yale School of Drama, Amy spent years acting professionally in theaters such as Seattle Repertory, Oregon Shakespeare and Yale Rep, and working consistently in commercials. She now applies the skills of performance that only well-trained actors know to the coaching of ‘non-actors’ looking to crush their sales presentations, to make their voices heard in TED Talk style presentations, and to take the big stage keynoting major conferences.
Geoffrey H. Garrett, a senior attorney at Byrd Garrett Wealth Preservation, said: “As a military pilot and B-747 captain over a forty-year career, I received every kind of skill-specific training and encountered every sort of teacher. I consider Amy to be, hands down, the best trainer-coach I have ever met. I cannot recommend her services highly enough."
