Is this for you?

The Speaking Coach flagship six-consultation coaching programme is designed for those who have to deliver and deliver big. We tailor the content to your needs and priorities.

You may have to present a keynote at a conference, deliver a formal presentation, or take a new idea to some important stakeholders, whether in person or online.

This is for anyone who wishes to improve their communication skills. This is designed to allow you time to develop your skills naturally as we can cover a lot more in six consultations than in a single learning engagement. My six-week program gives you time to reflect and prepare between consultations, so you can bring what you have done back to the following consultation and we can work on it.

Is this for you?

Individual coaching consultations are suited to people who struggle with public speaking, have anxiety around the thought of it, and don’t know where to start.

If you wish to improve their public speaking skills, whether it be in the workplace, at social occasions, or as part of their studies, this is for you.

Designed to give you flexibility on how many consultations you wish to have. While private coaching does not provide an opportunity to practice in front of others it can be useful in some circumstances including:

  • when you have an important speaking engagement coming up and you don’t have time to do the six-week ‘Speaking toolkit’ course
  • if you are working on a particular aspect of your speech writing or delivery technique (e.g. how to structure a presentation or how to improve your body language)
  • if you would like a brief introduction to some tips for presenting prior to enrolling in our six-week course or group workshop

Talk to me if you are interested in private coaching. Normally one to three consultations are sufficient.

One-to-one coaching, face to face, or via zoom

*For your convenience, we offer consultations via zoom. They cover most of the same material as the in-person coaching, provide the same speaking opportunities, and are designed to be highly interactive (you won't be ‘taught at’).
**Additional fee for Speech NZ exams, payable directly to Speech NZ.

Learning outcomes

On completion of our six-week ‘Speaking toolkit’ you will be able to:

  • speak in public with increased confidence
  • identify the characteristics of effective presentations
  • utilise physical and vocal skills to enhance your presentations
  • use relaxation techniques to help release tension
  • develop effective presentations

Free consultation chat

I offer a free 10-minute phone chat so we can discuss your specific challenges and goals in public speaking.

Why? Because I know attending a public speaking workshop is a significant investment of time, money, and energy, and so I want to help you understand what will work best for you.

It may be that you’re best suited to go straight to our six consultation package, but it also may transpire that you’re better suited to have a private consultation or two with the Speaking Coach to help you become comfortable with some of the fundamentals of public speaking and the associated mental techniques first.
