OBERLIN, Ohio & BRUSSELS - July 18, 2023 - PRLog -- Author of The Joy of Public Speaking, Matthew Cossolotto (aka The Podium Pro) announced today that he is launching a speaking business, complete with a new website (, demo video, and an inspiring lineup of Personal Empowerment Programs (PEPTalks) based on all three power tools in his Triad Empowerment System -- habits, speaking, and promises.

Cossolotto's high-level leadership communications career spans the corridors of power and influence on both sides of the Atlantic. He served as a speechwriter for top officials at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, and for the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. He also worked as a legislative assistant for Congressman Leon Panetta. In addition, he has coached and penned speeches for many corporate and academic leaders – from the Chancellor of UCLA to CEOs and other senior executives at GTE (now Verizon), AT&T, IBM, Pepsi-Cola, MasterCard, LaFarge, and many more.

On his new website, Cossolotto explains his speaking and coaching focus: "I help leaders and aspiring leaders become more authentic and compelling speakers and adopt empowering success habits so they can advance their careers, enhance their leadership skills, and make a positive difference in the world by reaching their peak potential… on and off the podium."

Cossolotto's Personal Empowerment Trilogy: Reach Your Peak Potential
The Joy of Public Speaking is the first book in Cossolotto's personal empowerment trilogy. Two additional books are coming soon: Harness Your HabitForce – which highlights the seven essential habits of SUCCESS – and Embrace Your Promise Power – featuring an extensive foreword by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series.

The Joy of Public Speaking: Turn Stage Fright into Stage Delight
Cossolotto stated that his initial focus will be on finding clients and venues for his PodiumPower! public speaking and coaching programs. With that focus in mind, Cossolotto is contributing a series of articles for Brussels-based Together Magazine called the Public Speaking Master Class. Here's a link to the Winter 2022 edition of Together Magazine: Cossolotto's first article in the Master Class series begins on page 39.

A Promise to His Mother
Cossolotto's journey as a personal empowerment speaker and author began with a promise he made to his mother. As he recounts it:

"I made a promise my mother on her deathbed that I would finish writing a book she had been encouraging me to write and dedicate it to her memory. She looked up at me with tears in her eyes and said: 'You do that, Matthew. You do that. This makes me very happy.' I'm proud to say I kept that promise. That heartfelt promise put me on my current path as a personal empowerment author, speaker, and coach."

Targeting Large Organizations and Events in the U.S., Brussels, and Beyond
Cossolotto said he will target his marketing efforts on a wide range of corporations, government agencies, NGOs, and other large organizations and events on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond. To book Cossolotto as a virtual or in-person speaker, workshop leader, or speech coach, visit
