Together we'll tackle your nerves and refine your delivery. I'll show you how to develop your voice, breathing and body language skills in preparation for a calm, confident presentation. Sessions are tailored to the client's individual needs. I can help clients with content of presentations as well as delivery if necessary.
JOB INTERVIEW TECHNIQUE
We'll cover all aspects of the job interview from entering the room, vocal quality and tone, hand shake, posture and steering the interview in the direction that serves you best. This can be one session to prepare for a single interview, or a course of sessions during which you'll practice 'mock interviews' to prepare and improve.
ACTORS' AUDITION SKILLS
Perhaps you are auditioning for drama school or would like help with in person or self tape audition skills? I've been working with professional actors for over ten years, to help them get places in their chosen drama schools and win roles in feature films, commercials and plays. I'll help you select audition speeches, tackle Shakespeare or inject your unique personality into audition sides.
VOICE & BREATH
As a trained actor, I believe the best public speaking starts with great breath and voice technique. I will help you calm nerves through breath, strengthen your voice, develop your vocal resonance, learn diaphramatic breathing, improve vocal clarity, variety and projection through a programme of vocal exercises and training.
Make sure your pitch stands out from the crowd! Together we'll work on capturing and holding your listeners' attention. I'll help you refine the content of your pitch as well as hone your delivery skills. You'll come away from our sessions with the best possible version of your pitch which most accurately represents you and your business.
CONTRIBUTING DURING MEETINGS
For many people, work meetings can create a lot of anxiety. Perhaps you dread speaking in front of your colleagues, or feel your input is not being heard? Find your most authentic expression of authority and confidence for work meetings and more.
STORYTELLING & CONVERSATION SKILLS
Perhaps you wish you could tell a great story? Entertaining? Funny? Even captivating? This is a skill that can be learned and developed. I can help you turn weak anecdotes into killer stories, and help you practice your everyday conversation skills. Storytelling is becoming even more important in workplace scenarios too. Learn how to give your presentations that personal connection.
If you've been feeling uncomfortable in work and / or social settings, I can help you build and convey confidence through voice, body languange and performance techniques. My form of confidence building is about nurturing people to find the most authentic expression of of their self esteem.
GROUP PUBLIC SPEAKING SESSIONS
(Perfect for the office)
What you get:
A day of coaching for your team (20 participants max)
Free 45 minute phone consultation w. group leader before the coaching day to discuss goals.
Some training days can feel cheesy or even embarrassing. This is not that kind of experience. Leading meetings, presenting and pitching are necessary parts of working life, yet many of us dread these aspects of our jobs. Good public speaking technique is about focused storytelling and genuine connection with your co-workers.
My training days are about working together as a team to build confidence, learn from one another and improve individual public speaking technique.
I'll ease you into voice and body language exercises with lots of low focus group work.
Participants will have the opportunity to present in front of one another in small groups. The emphasis is on creating a safe, supportive setting in which people can step outside of their comfort zones.
My Public Speaking Days are bespoke and will be tailored to whatever aspects of public speaking your organisation wishes to improve. Eg. storytelling, connection, presence, increasing confidence, incorporating humour, including personal experience and anecdote. As a queer coach with ADHD, I have extensive experience working with the LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse communities and also run Diversity and Inclusion Workshops for workplaces focusing on better understanding, reaching out to and retaining LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse talent.
