Do any of the following sound familiar?

I often avoid ‘tough conversations’ and/or confronting
people with my honest opinion.


My coaching helps you communicate confidently and effectively to get what you want in your personal and professional life.

  • Nail your next job interview

  • Communicate effectively with clients

  • Have that big scary talk you've been putting off

  • Stop feeling like you just committed "word vomit"


Meet Louis Melendez

Before I became a communication coach, I gained tremendous experience as a sales leader at Yelp and other companies as well as an improv and live comedy performer. Whether I was handling a heckler at a live show, presenting to executive leadership or navigating a tough sales call, I always relied on the same core communication skills for a positive outcome. In 2020, I founded Have Better Conversations to teach others how to communicate confidently and effectively to get what they want in their personal and professional life.


Here’s a few more highlights about me:


  • Coached hundreds of professionals

  • Negotiated $5M+ in digital ad sales at Yelp

  • Raised $4M+ for charity at Charitybuzz

  • Conducted 400+ job interviews

  • Trained dozens of sales & customer service people

  • Cofounded the team-building experience Workflo

1:1 Coaching

Every person's communication challenge is different - my coaching is designed to help you express yourself better with your own words and in a way that feels natural and builds confidence. 

Here's a few examples of conversations that can benefit from coaching:

  • Job interviews (Both interviewer and interviewee)

  • Sales & client management

  • Giving & receiving feedback

  • Presentations & public speaking

  • Confrontations & sensitive topics

In our first strategy session, we'll identify the challenges you're facing and work on some practical techniques that you can start using immediately.
