YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, NY – July 15, 2011 — Matthew Cossolotto — aka “The Podium Pro” and author of All The World’s A Podium — announced an agreement with a leading global company to provide his signature “PodiumPower!” speech coaching services and workshops.

Cossolotto is an accomplished CEO-level speechwriter and speech coach who also served as an aide to Congressman Leon Panetta (now Defense Secretary) and House Speaker Jim Wright.  In the private sector, Cossolotto served as a top speechwriter and communications executive at MCI, Pepsi-Cola International, and GTE.

Under the recently signed agreement, Cossolotto will provide one-on-one speech coaching services for several executives and a series of PodiumPower! workshops.

“I’m very excited about this agreement,” Cossolotto said.  “I enjoy working one-on-one with executives to enhance their public speaking skills.  I’m also passionate about my PodiumPower! workshops.  In my coaching and workshops, I emphasize what I call “The Joy of Speaking.”  To that end, I put a premium on authentic speaking, helping leaders find their authentic voice and speak from the heart.  In fact, I like to call my book All The World’s A Podium “The manifesto for the authentic speaking revolution.”

All The World’s A Podium (signed copies available on http://www.ThePodiumPro.com) has been praised by a diverse group of high-profile leaders and executives in both the private and public sectors, including Hendrik Hertzberg, former House Speaker Jim Wright, H. Brian Thompson, TJ Walker, John B. Anderson, Lou Tice, Chris Sinclair, Sherry Mueller, and Granville Toogood, author of The Articulate Executive.
