Public speaking for corporate women 2018-01-28T10:52:14+00:00

Hey Corporate DIVA!

Is public speaking the key to building your career?

You want to be at your best whether it’s speaking to your team, in a meeting or at a conference.

You KNOW you have what it takes.

Now, IT’S TIME to build up your confidence speaking to groups.

IT’S TIME to frame and showcase your skills and abilities.

IT’S TIME to persuade, inform and make your audience sit up and listen.

Here are a few of the areas I can help you with:

  • Exercises and frameworks to help you think on your feet and speak confidently without preparation
  • Telling powerful personal and client stories that draw your audience in
  • Taking a dull, dry talk or workshop and making it delicious and delightful
  • Speaking persuasively
  • Building gravitas with body language, vocal variety and more
  • Building your credibility throughout your talk with the right language and information
  • Delivering a tightly-structured, value-packed presentation that impresses your audience
  • Preparing mentally and physically for your meetings/speaking opportunities
  • Vocal and presence exercises that ensure you make an impact
  • Developing your unique DIVA style – give your audience more of who YOU are
  • And much more…

As someone who was once afraid of public speaking, I have a gentle and fun coaching approach that doesn’t feel like hard work.

Thank you Shola for the precious & priceless gift yesterday! I have spent thousands of pounds & countless hours learning & training!
Never before have I had a coaching session so precisely & perfectly made to fit the job in hand!
That one short session got me through a very challenging speech & will serve me for the rest of my life!
