Does your job or leisure time involve public speaking?

Could you benefit from improving your style, delivery or ability to communicate with your audience?
Clear Pronunciation can provide you with the range of skills that you need to drive your message across, whatever the context, in a memorable, entertaining and informative way.
With a background in corporate communications, I turned my attention to helping both native and non-native speakers of English improve their speech and articulation, as a pronunciation and elocution coach.
In tandem with accent reduction, I also prepare students for the LAMDA exams (in which I hold a Grade 8, Gold Medal in Speaking in Public') and equip clients with the dynamic presentation techniques and strategies they need to ensure that their content is presented in a compelling way and that their audience is fully engaged.
After a career in public relations spanning several decades (during which I wrote dozens of speeches and presentations), I retrained as a teacher of EFL, specialising in pronunciation.
I work with clients from all over the world and from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, to ensure that they are fully understood 100% of the time.
As a LAMDA Gold Medal holder in 'Speaking in Public', I can also help clients to develop better speaking and presentation skills, whatever their area of expertise.
Speaking is a physical skill and the foundation of high impact communication is excellent articulation combined with appropriate modulation. This means employing pace, pitch, pause, volume, power and intensity effectively.
Correct breathing is the key to voice projection and for many clients, this is often the starting point. Without adequate support, your message may never reach its audience!
A good presentation, speech, talk or lecture depends on a dynamic combination of well-structured material and good delivery. The latter is not just about voice, but equally determined by body language and 'presence'.
I encourage my clients to work on individual speeches or presentations (both prepared and impromptu) to develop and refine their ability to deal with whatever presentation requirements they encounter, whether in their professional or social lives.
