Speak to lead
As a leader it is imperative that you can connect authentically with those whom you lead.
Leadership is challenging and in the age of information we are bombarded with messages. The great leaders to emerge are master communicators.
More than merely speaking to an audience or delivering a presentation, leaders who are great communicators can respond to the audience and adapt on the fly as well as weave stories throughout to create a connection.
I will help you find your unique speaking voice. I will show you that in considering an alternative to PowerPoint and embracing the age old skill of storytelling, you will be able to reach others as you take centre stage.
Your business or career success depends on your ability to market yourself. Public speaking and presentation skills training are an invaluable investment to help boost your confidence and create tangible results.
In a tough business environment, confidence is a key to success and high-impact speaking is a way to stand out from the crowd.
There are too many ordinary presenters out there. Don’t settle for ordinary, aim to be extraordinary. Find that ‘sweet spot’ where your energy and passion connect with your expertise and knowledge – and then convey that to your audience in a clear, captivating and engaging way.
Combine your technical know how and your ability to create all the data and evidence to back you, with the magic of metaphor and the power of business storytelling.
Public speaking and storytelling for leaders is ideal for executives, leaders and entrepreneurs. Regardless of your current speaking ability, you will learn to take your skills to the next level. This workshop is typically delivered in one day. It may also be delivered over two days if your group wants to include a live storytelling session to showcase your skills.
In this workshop you will discover:
- How to create a compelling speech using an ABC framework.
- Ways to enhance your message with powerful non-verbal communication.
- The secret of storytelling to build your strategic narrative.
- How to use delivery techniques to connect, engage and influence.

Here is some feedback from a recent participant:
I presented at a conference and I had some great feedback from my manager and the conference attendees. I used a number of your techniques and told a story that engaged the audience. I just wanted to thank you for your help. Public Speaking is nerve-racking at the best of times, but you gave me so much confidence, not only for speaking but for networking and interacting with colleagues and managers.

You have all the skills you need to be a powerful storyteller. For many of us those skills become dormant. It may be because you think you don’t have any stories worth sharing or perhaps you don’t know where to start.
I believe we all have stories worth sharing. As we weave our way through the rich tapestry of life, we have many experiences and lessons learned that we can share with others.
