Speak Up for Others

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 Up – Coaching

We teach you how to influence through using your voice – and your personality.

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. But sometimes they revert to the ‘done’ way. Data without story fails to engage, and story without data may 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!

If it’s media handling training you need, read on.
