Become a confident, engaging and influential speaker in every situation

Public Speaking, Presentation Skills & Influencing Workshops and Coaching to Help You or your Organisation…

  • Think and speak coherently, competently and professionally
  • Overcome fear and resistance in front of groups, large or small
  • Prepare easily in less time with clear, easy-to-use systems
  • Engage and influence any audience – even unmotivated ones – using easily implementable techniques
  • Make impromptu speaking a natural event, not an ordeal

As well as helping people come across as clear, credible and authoritative when presenting (public speaking), I also help them to be confident and influential when:

  • Speaking up in meetings (personal speaking)
  • Having conversations and dealing with colleagues (private speaking)
  • And for individuals or groups in current or emerging leadership roles, there’s my Speakers Confluence™ program

Online coaching and training options are always available.

Some of the organisations who've trusted me with their public speaking and presentation skills training

If you need to present – or speak up at work – your comfort level will vary from avoidance or “I stuffed up again!” to something like “My skills are great, I’m just looking for an expert outside perspective, polish and fresh ideas”.

I’ve spent 12 years helping clients gain either the confidence they need, or polish their skills with techniques they perhaps didn’t even know existed until we started working together.

Located in Australia, I work with people all over the world – recent and current clients are working with organisations such as the UN and Deutsche Bank.

If you’re in a leadership position, or want to be, Speakers Confluence™ is what you’re looking for. It combines confidence and influence, the bookends of my Accelerated Speaking Results System (see below). Within the system there are content, engagement and impact – and they’re all vital. But to create the results you’re looking for in the world, you need Speakers Confluence™.

You can stand confidently in front of others, knowing that what you’re doing will work. From content structure and through-line, key messaging, Q and A, right through to slides, impact and influence techniques.
