I teach people how to enjoy speaking, using skills learnt from my time as a stand- up comic.
My students gain confidence through practical exercises in writing, speaking and approaching the whole communication process creatively.
I’m a former professional stand-up comic and computer game designer, providing bespoke training to enable you to win pitches, give high impact presentations, and have meetings with no wasted time. My philosophy is based on my stand-up comedy experience:
Be creative, convincing and concise.
Confidence when speaking in any situation, such as presentations, networking events, pitching and interviews.
My sessions are interactive and fun. My time as a stand-up comic taught me a few vital elements which I like to include:
- thinking creatively
- questioning the status quo
- having fun
- practical, applicable lessons
- no psychobabble, buzzwords or other nonsense
One-to-one coaching to enable you learn how to write and speak creatively, enabling you to give presentations that are compelling, enjoyable to deliver, and highly memorable. My approach is the antidote to 'death by Powerpoint'.
By the end of the session you will know how to:
- write and edit for a solid, memorable structure
- deliver with enthusiasm to engage your audience
- improvise to create a unique experience every time
- deal with nerves and adapt to unexpected events
