Founder, Communication Coach 

Teri Goudie

Teri Goudie is an international media coach and communication strategist. She is a former ABC News journalist and newspaper columnist. Goudie is proud to be on call with some of the most influential and dynamic leaders of our time. Her approach is energetic and the results are long lasting. The goal of each session is to surprise and delight with unexpected value and inspiration.


Goudie emphasizes the importance of putting powerful ideas into a few well selected words and building brand reputation through the power of storytelling. Outcomes, not output, is the goal. Clients should be able to measure communication success through business results, loyalty, and behavior change.


She teaches the need for comparative proof points, and the joy of personalizing even the most complex information. During her sessions, people learn how to crystallize their story and create the ultimate one-minute elevator pitch.


Goudie graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She is married to ABC News reporter Chuck Goudie and has five children. She is an avid marathoner, triathlete and mountain climber. Goudie loves film, literature and dedicating her volunteer time to family causes.
