Leadership is a Performance Art
Charts. Graphics. Videos. Messaging. KPIs. Sometimes, we are so focused on the content of our presentations that we forget the delivery and the audiences’ desire to connect. What gets lost in the shuffle is… well, the theater of it all.
The creativity behind every choice that elicits deep engagement and human connection. The crafting of a captivating story. The transformational journey offered. The transcendent tones in your voice. These are all essential to your success, because every presentation is a performance, no matter the audience size.
The trajectory of your career is determined by your voice
I am a Creative Director for high-achieving leaders who want to give presentations that move people profoundly. When you align the poetic invention of theatre with the corporate world, your speech remains alive in the memory of your audience. My mission is to bring out your creative intelligence and help you solidify your leadership voice through:
- Well-Rounded Storytelling: Focusing on physical, spacial, and emotional techniques
- Nailing the Metaphor: Determining your unique expression and producing the supportive creative elements
- Technical Production: Developing lighting, sound, setting, and wardrobe; the aesthetics informing the atmosphere

Misty Megia has helped me show up dynamically and authentically, both in person and online. Along with guidance for the strategic launch of a live program, she coached me on what I do well as a trainer and where I can improve, all with the signature Misty smile. She’s brilliant, strategic, and—dare I say—a creative genius. Thanks, in part, to the many hours we’ve spent discussing business and marketing strategy, I’ve seen my audience nearly double and my program change lives. I’m so grateful. If Misty is involved, you know it’s going to be great! Highly, highly, highly recommend!

I am a newbie to doing webinars and Misty’s generous guidance was invaluable. She made suggestions on everything from managing participant engagement during a webinar to how to angle the camera to maintain good eye contact and be seen at a flattering angle. Misty is a public speaking coach who guides with wisdom, warmth, and expertise!

Misty Megia is one of the most welcoming and collaborative directors that I have had the opportunity to work with. She does a great job of analyzing text and conveying the intention, while also being very receptive to the individual actor’s point of view. When working with Misty, an actor never feels pressured or misunderstood. The goal with Misty is always authenticity. She has a natural way of working that allows her performers to open up and really put themselves into the text to create an authentic performance.
