Thank you for stopping by!
I assume you did so because:
- You are scared before you speak
- Petrified with panic when you present
- And you dread delivering a talk!
Do you go to pieces whenever you are in front of people? FIVE WHOLE PEOPLE?
How about FIFTEEN?
Does the thought of FIFTY send you into a spin?
Do you struggle to get your point across?
Forget what you wanted to say?
UM and Arr a lot?
Hate people looking at you?
Struggle to make eye contact?
I know all about:
- Brain Freeze
- Clammy palms
- Excessive sweating
- Hairs standing up on the back of my neck
- Feeling sick
- Dry mouth
- Forgetting what I was going to say, even just a few words
- And I remember I would rather do anything than stand up and speak!
Have you ever sat in an audience and felt sorry for the person presenting? You feel their anxiety coming across and wish you could help them out? Worse still, have you ever been bored by a speaker or cringed at their amateur style of delivery?
BUT THE FACT IS
Speaking is the fastest and most surefire way to be seen as the leader of your industry.
The speaker is the one who has the most respect and attention in the room.
The person who presents is the voice we listen to. They are the one with the ultimate authority.
Of course you know this - it makes perfect sense!
What would happen if you didn't conquer your fear of speaking?
But what if you want more from life?
How can you be seen as a leader?
How do you show you are totally worthy of your fee?
How do you demonstrate you are entitled to a pay rise?
How do you win new business and secure your position?
How do you make your contacts count in a networking situation?
You just know that you have to speak up or stay put.
So wouldn't it be in your best interest to get good at it?
Speaking well, even if it is for five, ten or fifteen minutes will demonstrate you as
Fascinating – the list goes on…
So, wouldn't it be great to bust your fears once and for all? Aren't you fed up sitting in the audience or at your office meeting, knowing full well you are far better informed than the person speaking?
What if you are just OK at speaking, but know you could do better if you just gave yourself a chance?
What is stopping you?
If only you could speak, and express yourself clearly and confidently, you would be seen as the authority.
Isn't it time you commanded respect for all you have learned?
I know exactly how that feels. I used to be extremely shy. I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me whole. I literally shook with fear when I had to give a dreaded “Elevator Pitch" in front of only a dozen people. I always wanted the whole experience to be over and done with.
But now, I am a member of the Professional Speaking Association and speak confidently in front of large audiences of over a thousand people. I have spoken all over the world, including the European Parliament.
So how did it happen?
Well, I'll tell you that story when I see you on 29th September. But briefly, one day it got so bad that I simply had to turn the corner. I experienced such acute shyness that made me feel so ridiculous that I resolved to get a grip on my situation. I realized that everything I wanted was waiting for me, just beyond the mental barrier of fear.
So I set to work. I used all the training I had almost forgotten from my time at theatre school, combined it with the years of personal development I had been studying, and then added a massive dollop of my own life experience.
It wasn't easy at first, but with perseverance and steely determination, I developed my own style and then my confidence grew, and I became a Professional Speaker.
It is now my job to inspire groups of people large or small with motivation, confidence and communication skills. I help individuals from solopreneurs to CEOs in need of a quick boost. Sometimes we work on one particular presentation, or tune up the delivery style. I work with company teams from network marketing all the way to top law firms needing to improve their networking skills and connecting skills.
Recently, I helped a coach develop her talk so that she could present at local networking groups. Instead of being just an attendee, she now calls the event organiser and puts herself forward as a speaker, dramatically adding to her client list. I also just helped a CEO who is an experienced speaker, but wanted me to help tweak his style. We worked together to prepare a talk that was delivered in front of the Princess Royal!
My exciting occupation is built on the very thing I used to find so completely terrifying!
So if anyone can help you, it's me.
Because I've been there and done that.

I can't say fairer than that. So take a chance and make it happen.
I know the Castle is an utterly fabulous hotel but due to the nature of this kind of event, there will be a maximum number of attendees.
In order to make sure each person gets the attention they need for this special sort of day, we have to limit numbers.
Don't leave it until the last minute. Please make sure you get yourself a place as when we have reached capacity we will have to close the doors.
Tea and coffee, refreshments and a delicious buffet style lunch too! So you won't have to bring anything on the day.
Don't forget all the networking and valuable connections you will make on the day!
To follow up, we will create a Facebook page exclusive to your group, so that you can keep in touch and support each other as you go forward.
I can't wait to see you!
