Let's start creating presentations that connect and inspire.


how I work

I equip my students with the same skills used by professional actors and comedians to bring your presentations, trainings and meetings to life.


We start by getting to the root of who you are, identifying your core values to craft engaging presentations and stories that serve your rich, authentic self. You’ll stroll away with tools designed to connect, engage, and build trust with your team, your customers, and your organization. 

Sound good? Let’s set up a 30-minute zoom so I can learn more about you.

Get to know your coach

I am MERIDITH GRUNDEI, a public speaking coach and change maker and the owner of Grundei Coaching LLC, specializing in public speaking and presentation skills.

As an award-winning theatre director, producer, and former Second City improv teacher, I recognized the similarities between performing for audiences on stage every night and presenting to clients/colleagues every day. However, the latter didn't have the right tools to bring their stories to life.

So, I decided to do something about it. Grundei Coaching, LLC specializes in presentation and public speaking consultation, individual training and development, and creative team solutions using improvisational theatre techniques to build trust, empathy, and out-of-the-box thinking.

My clients include entrepreneurs looking to expand their brand by appearing on more stages and managers, leaders, and teams in both tech and medical fields. Some of my most recent clients include Amazon AWS, Merck, Idorsia, and the Iowa Department of Health.


I’d love for you to be next!​​
