Many leaders and senior managers are daunted by the diverse challenges of delivering effective presentations. Despite this feeling, business leaders are often required, by nature of their job, to step up and give traditional presentations, or share verbal content in new formats such as podcasts, webinars or video conferences. On occasion, individuals may be promoted or hired into a senior role with very limited experience of, and confidence about, delivering strategic presentations.
I transform business leaders into confident presenters and public speakers. Clients are evaluated and then supported as they discover their own signature style and learn how to engage and connect with any audience through their personality rather than by adopting a `professional’ corporate persona.
These individual coaching sessions deliver results quickly. My diagnostic and uniquely creative approach get to the heart of the matter. I eliminate nerves by identifying and teaching only the most appropriate and effective techniques to resolve the pain points of everyone. I also provide a personalised action plan, based on objective feedback, that can be used immediately.
Here’s how it works:
- An initial 30-minute ‘chemistry session’.
- 2-hour intake meeting, establishing desired outcomes and challenges to be met.
- Between 2 and 5 sessions, each tailored to the individual’s needs and objectives.
- Honest, supportive feedback and championing to instill the confidence required to present in any situation.
Unlike many coaches, I am trained in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) techniques that help people to relax, express their personality and show their authentic personality. This in turn allows them to build connection with the audience. I have a history of working with leaders and enabling them to become confident, engaging, powerful speakers.
For nervous speakers who are committed to change, the NLP ‘fast phobia cure’ is particularly effective. Within just 1 hour, fear of public speaking can be hugely reduced or eliminated altogether.
In any team, skilled presenters project a natural authority. They get things done, building followership from the inside out.
When team members pitch to a C-level audience, those senior decision-makers need ideas to be presented fluently and concisely. They don’t have time to hang around.
Working with groups of up to 12 people, I help leaders and team members inject personality and credibility into their presentation style. They will achieve:
- The confidence to deliver their message with conviction, even under pressure.
- The ability to persuade and influence an audience of high-level executives and leaders.
- An improved level of consistency within the team.
All sessions are tailored, never formulaic – they are centred around freedom of expression to achieve connection, credibility and confidence.
Each person will learn how to deliver presentations in their own signature style. They will win over an audience simply by being themselves.
