Have you ever dreamed of becoming an engaging and influential speaker or presenter?


  • Knowing you can have the audience hanging off your every word…
  • Knowing you can speak with confidence & authority at work…
  • Knowing you can be confident and competent on camera anytime…

Have You Ever Had One of These Challenges?

  • You struggle with a fear of public speaking in front of a live audience
  • You really hate the way you look or sound on camera or audio recording
  • You avoid shooting video because you sound unsure or unprofessional
  • You can’t seem to articulate your ideas very effectively…
  • People don’t seem to fully comprehend your ideas when speaking
  • You need to  learn better speaking skills, but not sure where to begin 
  • You have a high pressure job with limited time to train, so you need results fast!
  • You require confidentiality because of your celebrity status or job position
  • You are required to do Media Interviews sometimes, and need help….

You are in the right place!

There are solutions.

All of these issues are really common, and in fact years ago I was in the same boat too. I was unskilled as a speaker. I had no training or experience standing in front of a large audience and had no idea how to engage or control a crowd during my early performances. I would sometimes walk off stage beating myself up for doing such a bad job…”


If this sounds like you…

  • You feel uncomfortable in front of an audience…
  • Your mind goes blank the second you get in front of the microphone….
  • You speak too fast, or ramble…. then get off stage as fast as possible!

Look, I get it.

There is nothing worse than having to be in the spotlight for work, when you don’t feel ready… or knowing you don’t have the confidence or skill to pull it off successfully.

Thirty plus years ago, I was in the same position.

However, after 35 years on stages all over the world as a speaker, singer and actor, things very different now. I have spoken in front of small crowds of a few hundred, to entertaining / educating up to 20,000 people at outdoor events. 

As a speaker , coach and mentor, I have mastered on camera performances and media interviews which have propelled my career faster than I could have imagined. 

Speaking with Confidence, Clarity & Conviction can hugely impact your life.

A lack of good speaking and communication skills can make or break your career FAST.

Module One: 

The Mindset and Psychology of Public Speaking.

This is where we break any habitual ways of speaking that are disempowering your spoken message.

We eliminate negative cultural or family conditioning that has been holding you back, and instead develop a new blueprint of confidence so you can start to sound like the person you were truly meant to be – A Leader!

Module Two: 

Reverse Engineering Confidence with Improv Training.

Improv and Self Confidence training helps build confidence and competence from the inside out.

Once you identify the speaking patterns that are holding you back, you can start to speak off- the- cuff any time you need, with confidence and clarity.


Module Three:

Breath Management and Control for Public Speaking and Work Presentations.

This module is the foundation of all voice work. It works on helping you master breath control and breath management for all speaking tasks.

Lack of breath control is one of the biggest factors that inhibit our ability to speak with confidence. After this module, you will never sound breathless or run out of air ever again!

Module Four:

Is the next step in the foundation of voice. 

Building the sound of confidence into every word you say gives you more influence and authority every time you speak.

Increasing your vocal range, improving articulation, learning how to project powerfully, building a resilient, powerful and attractive voice that you will love for the rest of your life.

Module Five:

Advanced Patterns of Speech.

Now that the foundation has been covered, we move onwards to the advanced patterns of speaking.

What does a leader sound like? What sort of vocal patterns do you need to master? What sort of questions do we need to ask to engage our audience?

This module is all about finessing and fine-tuning your speaking patterns when speaking in public so you can appear more competent and engaging to your audience.

Module Six:

Crafting Your Message for Your Audience.

This module teaches you how to craft and hone your speaking presentations for the specific platforms you need to speak on.

Regardless of whether you need to write a Keynote Speech, a Ted talk, a Motivational speech, a powerpoint presentation, a media interview, a website video…

You choose your platform, and I will show you how. 

Module Seven:
