Women in Sales


with Amy & Michael Port


We don’t have to convince you that excellent communication and performance skills are essential to executive presence.

As a woman crushing it in B2B sales and marketing, you know that.

We’ve worked with countless women to help them rise in their companies due to succinct communication, clarity, and confidence.

We can do more together than we can alone.

Propel toward your goals, as you command presence and influence others in company presentations as well as to clients and future customers.

You have the power to improve all of your one-on-one interactions with internal and external executives.

It’s not about being “one of the guys.” It’s about performing in a way that is honest for you: someone who can learn and utilize performance techniques to show you are worth more than evaluative adjectives like “nice” and “polite.”

You’ve got this.

MArk Your Calendar

March 7th & 8th, 2018
Heroic Public Speaking Headquarters
Lambertville, NJ

Join us for our two-day event filled with interactive group sessions, quenching your desire to finetune your executive presence. Learn skills that will take your interactions to a level where you will stop speaking and start performing, all while building a foundation for transforming the way (and amount) you sell.

Then, participate in our laser coaching sessions to transform into the ultimate communicators. Yes, “ultimate communicator” might sound like a superhero term, but the only thing you’ll have to wrestle with is the pursuit of mastery--and you’ll relish in that. The combined elements of group sessions and laser coaching guarantees to maximize your time to thrive for anything from daily interactions to keynotes.


Demonstrate to your future leaders and key team members that they are important enough to invest in their professional development.

Employees are more likely to report promotion within two years when guided by managers and senior leaders on how to advance … yet recent studies showing that women are less likely to receive advice from leaders on how to do so. Heroic Public Speaking Women in Sales will give women the foundation for how to execute these conversations in their everyday performances, conveying messages in a way that is more clear, concise and persuasive.

With such clarity, leaders will crush more sales team revenues.

Become an even more lucrative place for women to work, grow, and thrive.


Michael and Amy Port

After Amy Port earned her MFA in Acting from The Yale School of Drama, she spent years acting professionally in theaters such as Seattle Repertory, Oregon Shakespeare and Yale Rep, and working consistently in commercials. Amy 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.

Michael Port has written six books, including Book Yourself Solid and Steal the Show. He's been called an “uncommonly honest author" by the Boston Globe, a "marketing guru" by The Wall Street Journal, a “sales guru” by the Financial Times, “a public speaking phenom” by Jonathan Fields, and “the best public speaking coach in the world” by Lewis Howes. His books have been on the bestseller lists of the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Publisher's Weekly, and have been selected by Amazon and 800-CEO-READ as "best books of the year."

As co-founders of Heroic Public Speaking, Michael and Amy work like directors in theater rather than typical speaking coaches. In fact, Scott Stratten, with typical cynical ambivalence, went to watch Michael and Amy lead a masterclass, after which he remarked, "I was mesmerized watching you two coach public speakers. I'd pay admission just to witness it. It was like watching art being made.“

In 2017, we opened the doors to the Heroic Public Speaking Headquarters. Of course, there are breakout rooms and a large space to rehearse. But beyond that, when you are here, we want you to feel at home. We have comfy couches to sprawl out at as you create content and a coffee bar to get you up on your feet. With glass walls conference tables, and spaces to store your luggage galore, we've thought of how to fill up each nook to make your lives (and your travels) as accessible as possible. It’s versatile to intimate group conversations and larger rehearsals. In short, HPS HQ is a beautiful space to work, be inspired, and expand your craft.

HPS HQ is in Lambertville, NJ, a quaint historical town brimming with artists and hiking trails. It's equal distance from both Philadelphia and Newark airports. A place bursting with delicious food and independent shops, Lambertville encapsulates a blend of charm and community.


  • “I have grown up being around some of the most powerful, influential human beings on this planet and you both are phenomenal leaders that I hold in the same category. I learned so much by simply being in your presence and valued every minute. Thank you for being our "game-changers" and supporting us on our mission to raise the bar. My personal commitment is that I will get in front of the two you to receive the coaching I need to become the master communicator I must be in order to take this company where I envision it going.”

  • “Amy and Michael Port are gifted coaches, and the very best of people: big hearted, honest, encouraging, and kind. For every ounce of effort you put in, they give back in tons. And the results are immediate, and long-lasting. If you ever have a chance to work with them, make it happen. They'll make you work, to be sure, but they also make you *want* to work, to realize what they see in you. No wonder they want to help people change the world -- they do it every day, in their own inimitable way.”

  • “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.”

  • “As a "voice of authority" speaking to business leaders, I am always working on ways to hone my message and better serve buyers and clients. Working with Michael and Amy Port over the last few years has given me specific strategies that have me showing up in an authentic way and closing more business. I recommend Heroic Public Speaking to anyone wanting to concisely get a powerful message across - whether one-on-one or in front of a corporate audience.”

  • “While I consider myself a solid public speaker, I have seen a breakthrough. A great number of people came up to me after Amy's training to tell me that this was the best training they had ever attended. And the real proof? We broke a firm record in the number of appointments from seminars sweep; I attribute these results to Amy's guidance. There are definite revelations from her training that put money in my pocket: more appointments, and thus, more clients.”

  • “Amy helped me more than anyone to be a performer. I always feel that working with her for ten minutes gets me farther ahead than working on my own for 10 hours.”
