Speaking & Impact Coaching

We coach changemakers to become great speakers

As a business leader or as a campaigner/lobbyist leading change, sometimes you’ll have to address stakeholders at short notice

Maybe to give an official statement, to speak to the media, give a presentation, present at an industry event or even claim an award. Feeling unfocused is not great for your confidence or your delivery.

We know what it’s like to encounter a difficult question or handle a challenging person in the audience. So we’d would love to show you how to respond effectively: online and offline.

Speaking & Impact Coaching

We teach you how to Speak Up! with Substance and Style!

Our lead coaches are Anj Handa, an international lobbyist and Minoti Parikh, a highly experienced Master of Ceremonies and former sports TV presenter.

Women are great at storytelling, communicating through connection as well as content. We don’t want you to revert to the ‘done’ way – becuase data without story fails to engage, and story without data can lack impact.

You’ll learn how to structure your talks, and get them across with a huge injection of your own personality. We show you how to draw in your audience by using all of your tools – not just your voice!

We have speakers for a wide range of subjects within our membership, so contact us to discuss your event.

You can also book our Founder, Anj Handa, who has a wealth of experience of social impact and inclusion.

As a professional lobbyist of over 15 years, she’s spoken in the UK and abroad, in venues as diverse at The House of Commons and the Palace in Brussels.

Anj has presented to audiences as intimate as 35 and as large as 400. Her talks focuses on three key areas and can be tailored to your objectives.

  • The Power of Connection (based on her global campaigning story)
  • Navigating the Labyrinth – Shattering the Myth of the Glass Ceiling
  • Emotional Correctness in Leadership

If it’s media handling skills that you’re looking to develop, our Associate, veteran award-winning presenter Richard Horsman can help. He trained Anj nine years ago and look how that turned out! Just contact us in the usual way to find out more.
