Speaker Coaching

Find your voice as a leader

As a leader wanting to make a positive difference, it’s vital to engage your team, colleagues, clients and stakeholders by being a compelling communicator.


You know this – yet how often have you left a meeting or presentation with a nagging feeling you could have had more impact and presence?


I believe we all have something original and worthwhile to say – and with the right support you can become an engaging speaker.


Easily the most useful coaching I’ve ever received

Virginia Sondergeld, Economist, NERA Economic Consultants

I know what it’s like to be afraid of public speaking. I started my career as a shy backroom lawyer and happy that way. Now, despite being an introvert, I’m a seasoned speaker and media commentator in the BBC and The Huffington Post, comfortable speaking and being interviewed on live radio in front of audiences of hundreds of thousands – even speaking at the House of Commons.


I’ve walked the path and I can show you the way.
