This workshop helps participants focus on their personal style as a leader, and the steps they need to take to up their gravitas and influence in front of their specific audiences, whether it’s the Board, Executive Committee, or a key client meeting or pitch. From there they’ll learn powerful leadership tools and leave with a personal list of next steps they can immediately put into action in meetings and teleconferences. Participants tell us they have far more influence, calm and confidence in meetings, and build trust and impact with audiences both internal and external so they can win business and sponsorship for their vision.
Find Your Voice and Inspire Your Audience
2 day workshop: 2 half days or an individual coaching package
Many leaders feel secret anxiety when they are invited to speak to large audiences. This course shows them how to overcome internal barriers to find the speaker within. The course reveals that there’s no such thing as a “natural” speaker – everyone has a quietly confident, authentic speaker within if they know where to look, if they know how to prepare, to find their stories, and to rehearse. This session shares with participants the essential steps to finding their voices as speakers and succeeding in the spotlight. Participants tell us they feel confident to accept speaker invitations and get great feedback from audiences, to the extent that they start to enjoy speaking at events, knowing they can get the butterflies flying in formation and their message to resonate.

“On behalf of the Weightmans Wednesday Committee, I’d like to say a huge thank you for taking the time to speak yesterday. We really appreciate all of the effort you made and for putting on such an engaging presentation. The feedback has been fantastic and you received a resounding set of ‘excellent’ scores for your presentation and the subject matter. I’ve also heard a number of people debating on whether they are a ‘Cat or Dog’ in the office this morning! Something that I believe will soon be a global concept! So thank you again. I am personally very inspired by the work you do and hope to work with you again in the future”.
“Just a quick note to say that I just got promoted to Director of Leisure! Part of the reason for it was because the area team were really impressed with me and my leadership and gravitas!! So thank you for the brilliant coaching… It has had a direct impact on my life (I still practice by the way)”.
“Thank you for delivering such a great event yesterday to our Pearls members, the feedback we have received so far has been excellent.”

“Thank you so much for such a fun and interesting session today. We’ve had fantastic feedback from attendees!”
“We ran a short evaluation survey for those that attended the large session you facilitated. There were numerous comments about how useful people found it, together with comments about how they will now focus on their breathing, pausing, and being more cat/dog! In short, the results shows that 96% of delegates found the session useful, and 97% would like to see more of that type of session…these are absolutely brilliant results!!”

“I am in a trade mission with UKTI and the mayor of London. I won the pitching competition in fintech – I have discovered the cat in me. I even had to do the pitch in front of the press, only podium was a bit high for me but did not deter me.
Thank you again – you were certainly instrumental in my development in public speaking”.
