Who it’s for
The Speakers Confluence® group course is for you if you’re a competent professional and:
- You’re expected to perform confidently, and know you can do a great job – but you don’t consistently feel that way
- You’re in a new role where you’re seen as an expert – but can feel like an imposter
- You need to be influential to change opinions and gain action during presentations, conversations or meetings
- You want to be able to influence regardless of your position
- You’re still too concerned about what people think of you – and that’s frustrating
- You’re looking for new strategies and tools to engage your audiences
Choose what you want to focus on

How the course works
- You deliver a short prepared presentation in each session (your choice of content)
- You’re videotaped, with link sent to you privately after the session
- You practise a short impromptu ‘think on your feet’ concept each week
- There’s lively group discussion, sharing ideas and feedback to move you forwards faster
- You get feedback from people in other industries with different perspectives, adding to your toolkit
I had a great experience working with Sarah over the last couple of months on the public speaking and executive communication skills. Sarah’s knowledge of the field is extensive, and she continuously went the extra mile to address my specific questions. Looking forward to working with Sarah in the future.
What you’ll learn
The Five Pillars of Speakers Confluence®
Learn proven mindset and behavioural tools to build and maintain confidence when you need it. When you’re deflated, uncertain or need a boost.
Walk that line between “being yourself” and adapting to situation and environment. How to modify your style and be versatile when needed.
How to get back on track in real time when knocked off-course. In Q and A for example, or when ambushed in a conversation.
Demonstrate persuasive, influencing and positioning skills of yourself and your content. Learn a suite of strategies.
How to engage your audience with specific tools, plus the right amount of energy and variety. Present with presence and gravitas.
I encourage anyone looking to develop their interpersonal skills to reach out to Sarah. I cannot recommend her Speaker’s Confluence program enough as it’s helped me gain the confidence and skills to have more engaging interactions.
She has the ability to tailor courses to your specific needs so you can target and hone specific skills rather than a generic overview. 10/10 recommend!
You’ll be re-energised and engage in new ways with your presentation and communication skills, and you’ll learn techniques you’ve never considered before!

Course content relates to my Speakers Confluence® individual client program
After coaching individual clients in this work and being asked to run it in a small group format, this course is the result.
You get much of that content, plus:
- The ability to test and practise skills in front of others: get immediate feedback in a safe environment
- A small group experience where I can cater to your own priorities, learning needs and styles
- A lower price investment than working with me 1:1
I really struggled when I started speaking in public, and was truly awful. Self-conscious, shaky, sometimes incoherent…with mind-blanks. (More on my story here.) So I decided to learn what works – to overcome my anxiety, and ultimately to speak with authority and presence. And I’m not special: I just learned the right tools and practised. You can do this too.
