What are your biggest achievements to date?

My greatest achievements are seeing and stepping into the possibility that I am someone who can make a difference to others, achieving some of my off the scale ambitions as an opera singer and my family.

My own baptism of fire as a public speaker was while I was at school. I wrote and delivered speeches to over 600 people and received coaching to help me do this. Truth be told, I was never sure of my own voice and it took me many years to get comfortable with it.

I started helping people with their business presentations when I was teaching English in Paris. I learned on the job… Gradually I evolved towards soft skills training and in 2004 I became a training consultant in the leadership development field. By this time, I was fortunate to be considered an expert in public speaking and designed and delivered public speaking workshops to people from all walks of life in the UK and internationally.

I have also worked as an opera singer in some of the world’s greatest opera houses and draw on all my experience to make a difference to everyone I work with. I am committed to helping others connect with their own greatness through their public speaking.

What Do You Love About Coaching?
