Naria Halliwell is the founder and president of Halliwell MediaWorks - a communication and media consulting firm. Naria works with executives across a wide variety of industries (major corporations and brands from Silicon Valley to Wall Street) to improve their public speaking and presentation delivery skills. Whether speaking to the media, a corporate board, or a potential new client, Naria believes it is essential to understand the audience, develop a compelling narrative, and deliver the content in an engaging and professional manner. Through narrative development, mock scenarios, on-camera practice, and targeted feedback, Naria tailors each training to help her clients develop and improve their skill sets as needed.
Prior to launching Halliwell MediaWorks in 2012, Naria worked for over a decade as an award-winning network news producer at ABC News, where she produced everything from breaking news to hour-long documentaries to Diane Sawyer Specials. While producing top-rated segments for the network, Naria learned the art of storytelling. In addition to interviewing the latest “get” and international news makers, Naria has prepared hundreds of subjects (including authors, experts, and everyday people) for television — helping them craft their message or story for millions of viewers. Naria graduated with honors from Brown University.
