My Story

Public Speaking as a Pet Hate

For many years I was managing director of a PR agency and found it very stressful whenever I had to stand up and speak in public as I would get nervous and it felt so uncomfortable.  I can really relate to anyone who dislikes public speaking as it was my own pet hate. So I decided to learn to conquer my fear of presenting and I studied, read extensively, went on many courses and learnt from some of the best presenters in the world.

Today I Speak Without Fear

Today, I  to speak in public without fear and not only that… I enjoy it.  Speaking brings me the opportunity to stand up and really connect with a group of people and earn their trust.  Most times I will still feel a bit nervous before standing up to address an audience but it is more a feeling of excitement than anxiety and I am confident because I know what I am doing.

I’ve Even Written a Book

Public speaking is a highly effective way to promote my business. It gets my message across with authority.  You can now read about how to be a better presenter in my book ‘Help! I’ve Got A Presentation Coming Up’ based on my coaching experience.

I think I have the best job in the world as a public speaking coach as I am able to help people to master the skills they need to unlock so many business and career opportunities… and I understand that it doesn’t come naturally to most people, but doesn’t take long to learn to do it well given the right support.

Call me on 01925 393155 or email [email protected] to arrange an initial chat to tell me more about your presentation or public speaking needs and what specific help you want from me.

There is no ‘secret formula’, but I will be sharing with you the key steps to preparing and speaking more confidently and – most importantly – you will be applying all of this to your own presentation or speech as we go through.

By the end of the coaching programme, you will have a talk you are proud of and the confidence to go out and deliver it.  What’s more, you will be able to apply these skills and planning templates whenever you need to create a speech or presentation (or even prepare for meetings) in the future. I offer public speaking courses in Liverpool & Manchester or via Zoom.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed all of this course.  It was really, really good, very well delivered and has certainly helped me as a presenter”

Mike Grundy, Finance Director, Roy Castle Foundation

Does this sound familiar? Are you guilty of the following

  • Avoid opportunities to stand up and present because you don’t enjoy doing it
  • Watch confident speakers and envy their ability
  • Believe that good speakers are born that way and you wish you had ‘the gift’
  • Take ages preparing but still don’t feel confident on the day
  • Spend hours/days before a presentation churned up with looming dread
  • You want to take your skill to a higher level so that you get great results from giving presentations

“This has been an excellent course, one I would thoroughly recommend – I have really learnt a lot… thank you”

What do other people think?

I would highly recommend Caroline.  Following my board presentation, I was then asked to present to other company heads on my subject title and I have not doubt that this was down to the delivery style Caroline and I worked on.

Mark Timmins

Caroline is outstanding – simple as that.  A real empathy and intelligence in her approach that made her a real hit with our team.  She’s focused, committed and brings a lot more to the table than her core expertise.  Would be delighted to commend her to anyone.

I will use at least 2-3 of the tools I have learnt today in my everyday life – and definitely to prepare my next presentation.

Phil Uber

The ‘fear’ of a whole day at a presentation workshop was quite daunting. However, it was fun, informative, lots of useful tips, techniques and by the time we had all presented we had taken on board and were demonstrating what we had learnt. Anyone needing to present should attend this course. The fears have been erased!

Cath Stewart, Community Philanthropy Manager
Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside

A very helpful and informative course. Helps you deliver a presentation in a simple, structured format. Most appreciated.

Nick Horton

I really enjoyed this presentation workshop. A very positive session and Caroline taught me techniques that I will definitely use in the future. Thank you!
