Conference speeches can be a nerve wracking experience – but it doesn’t have to be!
Speaking at a conference, industry event or company away day is a great opportunity to shine in a large group, but for many people it is also very daunting. I can help you to prepare, rehearse and deliver a great presentation that you will feel excited to present rather than anxious.
When there is a lot riding on the outcome, one to one coaching will give you extra confidence that you are going to do a great job.
Together we create a great conference speech. I will help you

- brainstorm ideas to add punch to your presentation and greater impact to your message
- learn and rehearse your presentation and give you valuable feedback to enhance your delivery
- create powerful visuals and slides that synchronise with your talk and add interest
- understand how to manage and control your nerves to give your best performance on the day
