About My Company

MK Harby Public Speaking is a company which provides coaching  for presentation, interviewing, speech and performance skills. This company was established in 2007 after having worked as a professional actress and musician for over twenty years.  I have a Theater Degree from Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, IN. My background in Theater and Music includes work at The American Repertory Theater at Harvard University, The Public Theater in Boston, MA and The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, NY.  I serve clients in the Monmouth County and The New York City area. I currently am the Head Speaker Coach for TEDxAsburypark where I help speakers give the talk of their lives. I run workshops for the students at Allied Health and Science to improve the speaking skills of future healthcare professionals.  I work closely with the team at Project Write Now to help the talented writers perform their works on stage. I also conduct Public Speaking Workshops which are available to help your staff communicate more effectively and connect with their clients.


What you should know about me and how I coach:

There is no way around it.  You will have to practice if you want to become a better public speaker.  Having been a music teacher for the past decade, I apply the same idea of practice to my coaching. My practice is based on practice.  I believe that there is no such thing as a superior public speaker, rather a speaker who has dedicated time and effort into practicing more. It is achievable to become a very good public speaker if you are willing to put in the work.
