WORK WITH ME

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

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

I’ve been offering individual coaching and consulting in public speaking and presentation skills for 12 years (with many years on stage as a classical pianist before that).

I coach at every level: whether you’re starting out, moving into a new role, or already in a leadership position. You may be leading yourself, a team, or organisation.

I support you to learn the skills that you need: from beginning the process of confidence-building, right up to high-level, consistent confidence and influence (through my Speakers Confluence™ program).

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 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. 

Learn more about each service through the links below, or comparison table at the bottom of the page.

You can also book a free 20 minute Discovery Conversation where we explore what you’re looking for and if/how I might be able to support you.

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

Speaking Strategy Breakthrough Improve Your Public Speaking

Speaking Strategy Breakthrough – one or two lasered coaching sessions

One Session. A Strategy Session is for you if you’re new to (or revisiting after a break) speaking or presenting, and need a specific foundational skill or ‘refresh’. Or you might be anxious.

Invest an hour, and I guarantee you’ll leave with clarity, tailored advice and techniques, 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 in between sessions. We’ll have time to explore different options.

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

You’ll leave with energy, clarity and certainty for your own specific 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 to truly embed the tools and techniques in front of others. And you present twice every week: impromptu and prepared.

You’ll leave the course 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 Improve Your Public Speaking

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 – your choice


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

Speakers Confluence™ Intensive – 6 hrs (1 day, 6 x 1 hr or 4 x 1.5 hr sessions)

This Speakers Confluence™ Intensive is for you if you’re already competent but don’t always feel that way. You want to be consistently confident and increasingly influential when you communicate:

  • Giving presentations
  • Facilitating or participating in meetings
  • 1:1 conversations

The ratio is tailored for your own 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.
