Tailored Training Programs

Helping your people to become confident, engaging and influential communicators in every situation 

Good business is about great communication. When your people speak effectively, they leverage your products, services and ideas. But if they lack confidence or skills it can cost you opportunities, time, effort and money.

Speaking to influence and motivate team members, having 1:1 meetings with clients, or persuading stakeholders – the ability of your people to speak well, with presence, conviction and energy in any situation, is a vital part of your organisation’s success.

When you work with me, you’ll get interactive, practical, enjoyable training and/or coaching programs, using the latest adult learning principles.

All programs are research-based and proven, helping over 4,500 clients in the past 12 years.

You can access workshops, training series, personal coaching and personal intensives using my Accelerated Speaking Results System (see below).

The ASR System reflects the stages of development speakers move through as they gain skills, experience, confidence and presence, and addresses both content and delivery at increasingly impactful levels.
