ABOUT HEROIC PUBLIC SPEAKING
What We Believe
We believe that a speech has the power to change the world and the people in it—including the speaker.
What We Do
Heroic Public Speaking helps speakers with transformational ideas leverage the power of performance to move audiences (and themselves) to think, feel, and act differently. Simply put, we help speakers deliver best in class performances so their ideas take hold and spread.
Who We Do It For
- Professional speakers and soon-to-be professional speakers.
- Entrepreneurs who use speaking to build their brands and book more business.
- Mission-driven people who want to advance a cause or lead a movement.
What We’ve Built
Heroic Public Speaking is considered by many to be the preeminent public speaking and communications training company in the world. We're a small company with headquarters in Lambertville, NJ, founded by a husband and wife team.
Who We Hire
It's easy to say we care … but we really do. We work hard, and we do it together. We know that no one is perfect and that sometimes non-traditional hires are the best hires. In fact, most of the people working at HPS, including the founders, currently do something different than they did in their previous jobs or what they were originally trained to do. Bottom line: we want you if you produce results, and we want you to be happy while doing it.
ABOUT THIS ROLE
We Need a Performance Coach (Contractor Position)
Heroic Public Speaking is searching for a top-notch performance coach for our students. Our students are non-actors that learn the craft and pedagogy from acting in order to create transformational keynote speeches.
You will work at Heroic Public Speaking HQ a few days every month, coaching students in large group sessions and one-on-one private sessions. You will also do virtual performance coaching over zoom.
Experience coaching non-actors, while not essential, is a plus, as is an ability to speak to why communication and performance matter in everyday life.
Specialty in storytelling welcomed.
The roles and responsibilities for the Performance Coach will be reviewed with every new adult cohort with a positive student experience and engagement in all HPS programs and events.
EDUCATION & QUALIFICATIONS
MFA in Acting or Directing, and/or proven performance coaching track record. While we seek individuals with substantive training in the performing arts, we also seek an individual that can thrive working in private coaching sessions and a pre-set curriculum alike.
YOU NEED TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGY
Especially after the pandemic, we’re a company that values and embraces technology; you must be comfortable learning and using modern processing and communication applications, like Google Suite and Slack. And, for virtual private coaching sessions, you must be willing and able to record and distribute your sessions from Zoom.
If you haven't used some of these platforms, don't let that discourage you. Our savvy team members were able to pick these platforms up right away.
Commensurate with experience.
LOCATION AND WORK HOURS
While our team is currently remote, the person filling this role will eventually be required to be on location at Heroic Public Speaking HQ in Lambertville, NJ.
