Hillary Wicht is a voice and presence expert. As an executive coach specializing in the psychology of influential communication, she has been sought by the Stanford Entrepreneurial Program for her work in the psychology of pitching for profit and tapped by the Wall Street Journal for her work on the impact of gender communication styles in the corporate realm. Hillary uncovers the various ways in which verbal and non-verbal cues impact the psychology and neuroscience of a listener to strategically influence the way others perceive who we are, what we are capable of, the value we bring to the table and our ability to move people to action.
Hillary first learned about the power of voice and presence as a stage actress and voice performer. As a session singer she has shared her voice with people like American Idol Winner Kelly Clarkson, Broadway star Idina Menzel, Hip-hop Legend LL Cool J and Rock n roll hall of famer Leonard Cohen. As a voice over talent she’s done commercial projects for companies such as McDonalds, Mattel, AT&T, and Toyota.
Coupling her performance career with her academic background in behavioral psychology lead her to further exploration in Somatic Leadership Coaching, the psychology of body language and the psychology of influential communication, allowing her to uncover deep patterns of speech and behavior.
Hillary now supports leaders in the boardroom, courtroom, in high-stakes conversations and on the stage to leverage communication cues to generate greater influence so that their messages are heard, their purposes are valued, and the right people take notice.
