A gentle way in to public speaking training

For some people, working with a group on public speaking doesn’t feel appropriate. It may feel too daunting, or perhaps you just want to take things one step at a time. Individual coaching allows us to explore the speaking landscape at a pace suited to your personal needs and interests.

A safe space to explore

There may be underlying issues you feel are holding you back. Many of us have had challenging experiences in the past – perhaps the way we experienced communication growing up, or maybe a particular presentation that didn’t go as well as we’d have liked. It can sometimes be helpful to explore what’s happened and look at new ways to move forward.

Developing specific skills

Everybody is different, and in a group environment it’s not always possible to work in depth on the needs of one person. Individual coaching can give you the space and time you need to develop a specific skill or skill set like speaking loud enough, learning to pause and breathe, eliminating ‘ums’ and ‘ers’, identifying a key message, answering questions, etc.

Preparing for a speaking event

Weddings, TED talks, key-note presentations, pitching for investment … If you’ve got an important event coming up, practice is essential – and getting feedback on your rehearsals can really help strengthen your delivery. You can also try out new ways of doing things, be filmed to see more objectively how you’re coming across, and get so familiar with your material that you can relax and really enjoy giving your talk on the day.

If you are considering individual coaching, do just get in touch. I offer free 15 minute phone consultations where we can discuss if and how coaching can support you.
