WORK WITH ME

To become a confident, engaging and influential speaker in every situation

Ready to positively reinvent your speaking, influencing or presenting skills?

I’ve been offering private, individual coaching and consulting in public speaking and presentation skills for nearly twelve years (and had years myself on stage as a classical pianist before entering the speaking world). I coach at every level, whether you’re in corporate, small-business or an entrepreneur, helping you with skills from confidence-building to influencing and advanced delivery.

I’m always positive and encouraging, but will also give you clear feedback that cuts through directly to what you need.

You’ll never be forced into a structure or box which isn’t ‘you’ (unless you choose to be!). Every part of the coaching process works with you to maintain your authenticity and natural strengths, and your vision and goals are always respected. 

I’m particularly good at working with clients who are introverted but who need to be extroverted when they present. 

You can learn more and visit each individual service through the links below. And you can also book a free 20 minute Discovery Conversation where we explore what you’re looking for and how I can best support you.

Accelerated Speaking Results System: where do you sit on this staircase?


NEED A BURST OF FRESH OR RENEWED CONFIDENCE, CLARITY OR POLISH?

Speaking Strategy Breakthrough – one or two lasered coaching sessions

One Session. A Strategy Session gives you a fresh perspective and tailored advice and support.

This session meets you exactly where you are: whether you’re afraid of public speaking or presenting, or are experienced and are looking for an expert outside perspective to further refine your skills.

Invest in an hour with me, and I guarantee you’ll leave with clarity, tailored advice and techniques to work with, and new – or renewed – energy and belief around your speaking skills.

Two Sessions. Speaking Breakthrough gives you tailored advice and support, and techniques to practise and test in between the two sessions. We’ll focus on what you most need, with time to explore different options.

Whether you’re nervous about public speaking or presenting, or are experienced and are looking for an expert outside perspective, we’ll shape and map out what you need. You may even learn skills you didn’t know existed!

You’ll leave with energy, clarity and certainty about what to do for your own specific speaking scenarios.


PREFER TO LEARN AND PRACTISE CONFIDENCE AND ENGAGEMENT SKILLS IN A SMALL GROUP COURSE?

Complete Presentation Skills Course – 5 weeks

Come to my small group course in Melbourne, and you’ll positively change how you feel about public speaking, as well as learn every foundational skill you’ll need. This ‘fundamentals’ course will give you different, proven tools to manage any speaking fears, as well as all the basics of great presenting.
The course runs over 5 weeks so that you can really embed the tools and techniques in front of others. And you get to present every week, twice: both impromptu and prepared.

By the end, you’ll leave with more confidence, clarity and ability to engage any audience in any situation.


MADE THE DECISION THAT NOW’S THE TIME TO BECOME A CONFIDENT AND ENGAGING SPEAKER? 

Accelerated Speaking Results – 3 month program

This is where you get comprehensive support to work with your vision, goals and challenges, with the space to truly test and implement.

You might want to ‘own the space’ and project confidence, competence and professionalism. Or work over a period of time on an important conference or keynote presentation. Or you might need to finally deal with your fear of public speaking. Perhaps a combination of all three – the choice is yours.


NEED TO BECOME MORE INFLUENTIAL AND IMPACTFUL WHEN YOU PRESENT, OR IN YOUR POSITION AT WORK?

Influence and Impact Intensive – 6 hours (1 day or 4 x 1.5 hour sessions)

This is my highest level of coaching, and it’s for you if you’re already a confident and competent speaker, in a position where you need to influence, inspire and lead. You know that your ability to positively influence people has a major impact on the outcomes you achieve.

When you’ve reached this level, you’re already proficient at doing much of the skills-based work: this is more about who you are being – a way of being that’s with you all the time. This coaching is for you if you  want to move into the truly influential and accomplished sphere when you communicate, both in presentations and conversations (the ratio is tailored for your own personal goals).

We’ll focus deeply on giving you high-performance, research-based principles and tools tailored to achieve your highest speaking and communication goals. You’ll become even more effective at winning people over to your ideas – whether that’s clients, internally to co-workers, upper management or the board. Or externally at a conference or other event.
