    The Good News

The ability to speak well in business is essential if you want to be taken seriously. However many people are afraid to step out in front of an audience and talk. It doesn’t matter how bright and capable you are, if you can’t present yourself eloquently and with confidence, you are unlikely to receive the recognition you deserve. An engaging presentation does more than deliver a message: it establishes you as the 'go-to' guru in your field and raises your professional profile.   And the good news is that the skills to speak in front of strangers can be learned.

People who speak well and communicate confidently earn 81% more!

It never ceases to amaze me that intelligent, bright and capable people, miss the skill that is guaranteed to position them as being eloquent, worthy and valuable. They fear public speaking. Seldom do they stand to deliver. Seldom do they say anything at all. Seldom do they get the recognition they deserve.
When it comes to public speaking training you want someone who not only knows the theory, but in involved in the 'doing' at a high level. I can help you whether you are a beginner, a more accomplished presenter or a seasoned speaker; whether you have to deliver at a corporate annual conference. or you have to speak at a special occasion. People who speak well and communicate confidently, earn on average 81 % more than those who do not! according to SpeakerBank.

Speaker Masterclasses

When you attend one of my high-energy sessions, you’ll have lots of fun; in the process transform your speaking skills and learn how to:

  • Overcome the fear of speaking in public
  • Project a powerful image
  • Fine tune speaking competencies such as presenting, performing and platform mechanics
  • Develop your topic
  • Ensure people listen
  • Love the sound of your own voice (and getting others to love it too)

You will leave with the courage, knowledge and skills to be a better presenter than you ever imagined.

Why should we choose you?  

As well as being qualified to train in presentation skills, I have hands-on experience as a business owner and professional speaker, so I know from personal experience what works, what doesn’t and why.

I am a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association UK & Ireland. In 2011, I was a board member with the portfolio for membership mentoring and CPD. 2014 saw me take on the role as the first ever National Co-President and represented the association both nationally and in 6 international locations. 

Incidentally, if you are looking for a trainer to help you build a tedious slide deck of boring bullet points, I am NOT the coach for you.  If you are looking to create a memorable POWER-PACKED PRESENTATION, you have come to the right place.

Captain Positive encouraged the audience to improve their presentation skills by using props, making their messages authentic, the power of three, and story-telling techniques. As soon as she took the stage, the audience was enthralled.
