Coaching. Technology. Community.
We’ll help you
be the shiniest
version of yourself
every day, in
your own way.
You’re sweating because public speaking gives you heart palpitations. Or maybe you’re a rock star subject matter expert whose ideas fall flat because your message isn’t being heard. Or perhaps you’re on the verge of a promotion or have a presentation at a conference coming up and you don’t know how to rehearse. Or you simply want to show up as your best self when speaking and communicating with others.
Now, imagine yourself actually enjoying the opportunity to get up and speak in front of others and the process of preparing to present at an event is exciting and fun. Imagine you’re confidently presenting, with little or no fear, but something goes wrong - you stumble on your words or there is a technical issue - but you’re now ready to tackle any “what if’s” that come your way and your performance and presence shines, despite a few stumbles.
This is why I created Studio G
I'm Kerri Garbis, Founder and CEO of OVATION, a communication skills training firm for business professionals.
As a professional actress, I supported myself for many years in between my gigs by coaching and training business professionals in presentation skills. Then, almost ten years ago, I started Ovation to employ professional actors in between their gigs and empower business professionals with the best presence and speaker development available. A few years into business, serving large corporate enterprises, I saw that the one-and-done learning experience can be fantastic, but getting those good habits to stick and stay in people’s muscle memory requires hands-on, ongoing support.
Because people develop in different ways and on different timelines, I created a virtual solution that provides live, ongoing support, self-paced learning, a supportive community, and AI driven metrics to help people just like you – the busy business professional who wants to get better but needs the convenience of on-demand coaching and support.

You can share all of it for support, words of encouragement, wisdom, and a lot of “likes” from peers and enthusiastic Ovation coaches. When you engage with the community, you connect with other professionals on a similar journey of development. You’ll brainstorm different ideas you want to put into action and share challenges.
