COMMUNICATION TRAINING

"Good communication can help you get jobs, gain promotions, negotiate the challenges of home life, and strengthen relationships with family and friends".
(Emma Serlin, The Communication Equation)

ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT PUBLIC SPEAKING AND EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

When clients come to see me and state that they are not good speakers and that they are terrified of speaking in public, I like to remind them that Barak Obama was once considered a relatively poor orator, and that this could be an issue when running for president. On the same note, it is interesting to watch Michelle Obama's progression as a speaker from 2008's presidential campaign trail, to the speeches she gave in support of Hillary Clinton nearly a decade later. It is clear that her power as a speaker grew exponentially. The great speakers of our time have all worked hard to hone their craft in order to become the inspiring figures we like watching and listening to today.

 

Good communication is a skill that requires time, effort and diligent practice to truly master. 

MY APPROACH TO HELP YOU BECOME CONFIDENT COMMUNICATORS

The mission of a powerful speaker is not only to convey information clearly, but to appear influential, confident and authentic to their audience. I draw upon a wide range of voice, movement and acting techniques that have been customised for the workplace. I aim to provide individual clients or groups with practical tools and strategies to develop their verbal and non-verbal communication, business confidence and executive presence.
