Do you speak with confidence and engage your audience?
To be a great public speaker, authenticity is key. You need to be in control of your presentation and not the other way around.
A dynamic performance is one delivered with confidence, in an engaging style, precisely tailored to the audience you are addressing.
I encourage my clients to work on individual speeches and presentations (both prepared and impromptu) to develop and refine their public speaking skills and equip them to deal with any occasion, whether in their professional or social lives.
Ensure that content is both compelling and appropriately structured, whether oral or visual
Support and project your voice with the correct breathing technique
Learn how to use pace, pitch, pause, volume and power to drive your message home
Use facial expression and body language to enhance and reinforce meaning
Incorporate anecdotes, personal stories and other rhetorical devices to communicate more effectively
Enjoyable and productive

She's a wonderful teacher
“Carrie stood out because of the questions she asked and the genuine interest she displayed in my learning needs from the outset. I have benefited hugely from working with her – she is a wonderful teacher, kind, reliable and always willing to go the extra mile. She identified issues that I hadn’t been aware of previously and encouraged me to practise between sessions. Carrie is very passionate and enthusiastic about teaching and a joy to work with!”

It has made a massive difference
“I came away with an award for the second-best presentation of the day, which I’m thoroughly chuffed with! It’s mostly due to your feedback and ideas, so I can’t thank you enough. It has made a massive difference.”
“Thanks so much for the session with Chris. He did such a fantastic job. It really was absolutely excellent: so funny and just perfect delivery. Thanks for all your help.”
