As a leader, you have a lot of plates spinning, whether you're a director, senior manager or team leader. There's so much for you to be on top of and then there are the presentations, tricky conversations and talks with your team in the mix too. It's a lot!
Right now you may be feeling uncertain that you can influence and inspire at all levels within the organisation, as well as externally.
You may enjoy public speaking, but especially if you've just been promoted you may not feel so confident in your new role as there are more eyes on you.
It may be that you're now required to do more speaking, even at large conferences and you need to truly engage your audience and be remembered for all the right reasons.
You may be worried about how you come across as a leader.

"Thanks to the skills and tools that Julia has taught me, I really believe my public speaking has moved onto a whole new level. Her approach was based on a true understanding of my needs and areas to improve.
I found her ability to read my emotions and body language to be quite something else and this really helped her to adapt her coaching to suit me personally. If you are looking to improve both your speaking and knowledge of yourself, I would highly recommend Julia to you".
Jed Ramsay, Project Leader

“The presentation in Krakow went really well. Everything I had hoped for. I was confident from the start and did not feel under pressure and the audience (about 150) really got involved. Looking back over the sessions we did together I really believe that my improvement in public speaking would not have happened without your input.
On reflection I can identify many things that you helped with but two really stick out: your confidence and your willingness to address problems immediately and head on. These are invaluable lessons and I am very grateful to have had the experience of working on these things with you and am honestly excited about the potential to put them into action elsewhere.
I hope we get to work together in the future”.

Here is a case study of Kathryn Ellis, who I coached on the “Step into your Power” Programme:
“As part of my profession in advertising I do presentations all the time. I had always thought I did ok, and experienced nothing above the expected mild nerves. But upon completing an MA research on the under representation of women in advertising agency creative departments I was invited to talk in various forums – from my workplace to large industry conferences. Every time I experienced excruciating nerves, I had sleepless nights, my delivery suffered and I hated the experience every time.
When I was invited to speak at a major industry conference in front of 250 people and press I knew I had to remedy this situation. I wanted to give it my all and share my passion with the audience.
"I couldn’t mess this one up, it was too important. This is why I sought support".
I happened across Julia whilst searching the Internet. I knew I wanted one to one coaching, not the same old presentation training. Upon my enquiry Julia was prompt to respond. We had a really helpful telephone consultation and I really liked her style. She seemed to understand my situation right away and make a great assessment of what I needed.
"I felt she really got to know you and your subject matter."
This was not a “one size fits all” approach.
Julia helped me craft my content and perfect my delivery. Together we put together an extremely engaging and impactful talk. I presented my information in ways I would have never thought of, and they really worked. She coached me with grounding and breathing techniques, which helped with nerves.
"We walked through the entire experience so I felt prepared".
By the time my talk came around I was pumped, passionate and ready to go. I had an amazing reception from the crowd, with a queue of people waiting to speak with me and invite me to appear at other events. I felt I really connected with the audience and most importantly I felt happy with my performance, something I had never felt before despite receiving positive feedback.
"Since that talk things have really taken off for me.".
I have been featured in social media and articles written by trade press and key industry figures. This has really raised my profile and is starting to build me a network of amazing people. I have been asked to do many more talks. And now, instead of dreading them I cannot wait!
Thanks so much Julia, I couldn't have done it without you!
