You want support with content, structure and delivery of your talk or talks.
You feel really nervous about public speaking and it’s getting in the way of you progressing at work or in your business. You’d like to get a handle on your nerves and actually enjoy speaking in front of others.
You have not ran a workshop before and want help planning, designing and delivering it so that you can feel confident on the day.
You want to change the way you do presentations and you may need to bring a dry subject to life! You may feel quite confident at presenting, however you know they could be more interesting and engaging so you can connect more with your audience, build credibility and make more sales.
You want to feel better about networking, particularly talking to people you don’t know. You may want help with designing and delivering a captivating sixty second pitch, building relationships and following up with people after events.
Here is a case study of Kathryn Ellis, who I coached on the “Step Up and Nail It” 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 experience excruciating nerves, I had sleepless nights, my delivery suffered and I hated the experience every time. I should have been enjoying every moment of sharing my research and instigating change but I hated it.
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 out 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 to Julia, I couldn’t have done it without her”.
