PERSONAL

My name is Victory Ram and I am passionate about creating magnetic, effective, and confident communicators. Through individual coaching and group workshops, I help professionals to eliminate their fears about communication, discover and own their message, and to love communicating.  

 

But, heads up: I am not your average "communication coach". I'm coming from a completely different perspective/world: the world of pageantry.

 

Ok, don't stereotype me. I'm not here to turn you into a pageant queen or throw glitter all over your social media. I am here to share the lessons I learned while competing about confidence, public speaking and communication skills, creating and maintaining a successful personal brand, marketing yourself, and much more. Trust me, a lot of what I learned in the competitive world of pageantry has made me into the business woman I am today. 

I chose my "line of work" because I got tired of watching people stumble and freak out when given the opportunity to speak. Whether it was a job interview, elevator pitch, a presentation for clients, or even a speech at a wedding - it just became too painful to watch people have near meltdowns when even thinking about communicating.

So here we are. I have created a multi-faceted approach to serving others: I coach, I speak, I help create. My services are for anyone who needs it:  moms, dads, recent grads, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, speakers, authors, doctors, whomever. If you want to become a better communicator, understand your strengths and weaknesses, enhance your life/community/world, or truly love communicating and want to do it with confidence...then it is time to work with me! 

It is time to work with me if you:

  • Want to create an elevator pitch that says who you are, what you do, and acts like a magnet to draw people to your cause;

  • Have a speech or upcoming presentation that needs confidence, flair, help with delivery, or edits;

  • Desire to hone your presentation skills, including your body language, facial expressions, etc;

  • Want to discover your personal message and learn how to share it with others; 

  • Want to develop your confidence when communicating with others in interviews, speeches, presentations, and more.

COVERAGE

I have always been committed to the idea of personal empowerment...even though I started as a pageant coach, I've never strayed from the idea of empowering others to be victorious in everything they do.

 

So, you'll see a lot of glam-ish pictures of me when it comes to coverage, but the message is still the same: no matter where you come from, no matter what you aspire to do...I am the coach for you!
