Public speaking development package (3 sessions)


I am a professional speaker who gets paid to speak and inspire an audience. I have the highest level of international accreditation as a professional speaker – CSP (Certified Speaking Professional). Only 800 people world-wide have such an accreditation.

Yet, I have to sit through many boring speeches. I watch speakers frequently who have no idea how to connect with and engage an audience. I witness multiple experts who have profound knowledge but fail to compel the audience to listen and so waste all that they know. And finally, I meet speakers who want to do well but don't know how.

I have, therefore, decided to put aside my own speaking career in order to coach others to be brilliant speakers.

If you are a CEO, politician, school principal, senior executive, academic, scientist, leader, environmentalist, or other person who wants to inspire, convince and engage an audience, then these three sessions of 1-1, personalised public speaking development are for you.

I am passionate to pass on what I have learnt from 25 years of successful speaking; starting as an academic lecturing to students, moving to the coaching of TV and radio presenters at the ABC and speaking on radio, and finally progressing to the professional speaking platform around Australia.

But wait, this is not about me. It is about you. These sessions will be individualised to what you need, to your speeches, to your style, to your personality, to your message.

I can't, therefore, tell you exactly what they will contain as I don't know you yet. It will involve what YOU need to capture the attention of your audience, to speak from the heart, to convince people, to make your dry topic interesting, to get your message across in a profound way … and more than that, to include anything and everything you need to ensure you feel confident that when you get up and face an audience you know you'll be your best.

I can also provide coaching on how to be a brilliant master of ceremonies.

Here are three main areas we may focus on for your public speaking development.

  1. Learn how to be confident so that you face your audience and capture their attention with ease.
  2. Learn how to be clear to ensure your audience knows exactly what they need to understand and take-away.
  3. Learn how to be engaging by finding interesting ways to get your message across no matter how dry your topic, and bring your information and expertise alive so it is not wasted.

I am not going to teach you lots of fancy gadgetry or how to be a techno-whizz, I am going to coach you on how to relate to, be relevant to, and engage an audience, person-to-person, heart-to-heart, and brain-to-brain.
