I am passionate about teaching and training and bringing out the best in someone. I have a bubbly and enthusiastic personality and this comes across in my teaching. I am able to provide you with testimonials from happy students, should you wish to see them.
I teach public speaking and presentation skills and work with the body, mind and voice as I find this achieves the best results for people. I have completed many drama courses over the last fifteen years and performed in several plays. I am qualified as a NLP (neuro-linguistic programmming) Coach and have coached people for the last twenty years working as a Probation Officer in London, a Life Coach in Bristol and a Public Speaking Coach.
I have been teaching public speaking and presentation skills for over five years, although my coaching, drama and qi gong experience I have gained over the last twenty years informs my work. I work with individuals to help them overcome fears, boost their confidence, find their voice and speak with impact and gravitas so you can really get your message across.
I help business professionals build their confidence and skills for delivering powerpoint presentations working with both the content and delivery as well as giving advice on using slides which will add to rather than detract from the presentation.
I also coach people who want support when giving a wedding speech, whether it's the father of the bride, groom, best man or someone else. Again, I can help with both the content and the delivery, to ensure you feel at ease, confident and are able to connect with the audience and hold their attention.
I am flexible and creative in my approach and will tailor my teaching to your individual needs. I am happy to teach people on an individual and also a group basis. With public speaking coaching, teaching small groups works well.
