speaking with confidence

1:1 Speaking Coaching – using Acting, Vocal, Movement and Mindfulness Techniques

The Concept

Life would be so much simpler if we were all born with effective communication skills. Unfortunately this isn’t the case, but fear not, these essential life skills are something we can all learn and if you’re in business, you really must learn.

Our fast paced ‘impress me’ digital world is full of competition. It is essential that you are able to sell yourself, your business, your services and your expertise. You may well be the expert in your field, but now you need to communicate this message to your public. Each communication opportunity is unique and you will need to be flexible with your style, by selecting an appropriate persona to suit the situation and objective.

Your public speaking, especially to a large audience, can be greatly enhanced using tried and tested acting techniques and disciplines. These allow you to be yourself, albeit a better version of yourself minus the nerves and any unhelpful mannerisms or habits which may currently trouble you.

Once you have mastered projecting yourself to your audience, it will totally transform your confidence and in turn your delivery. This is also true of more low key or smaller – yet none the less stressful – situations.

Selecting the correct persona, tone, enthusiasm and passion for the correct audience, while portraying the ever confident professional, can be a dizzying balancing act. You need to know who you are talking to before you decide what to say.

Our personalised and bespoke technique brings all of this beautifully together for you. All coaching is on a 1:1 basis using your draft content as a spring board. It’s an individual and organic experience calling on Mindfulness techniques to keep you in the moment. Acting (and even singing!) techniques to control and enhance your spoken vocal performance, timing and breathing. And movement techniques to improve your deportment, poise and body language.

Sessions take place at LLR HQ in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire or at a venue of your choice. Remote 1:1 Zoom sessions and group workshops (max 8 delegates) are also available.

“I have worked with Cheryl privately and within our business and I can say in each setting she was professional, caring and highly knowledgeable. It was great to be able to bring her expertise into both a group-setting as well as see how she worked at an individual level with me. Cheryl is reliable, personable and adaptable and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking to enhance their vocal and verbal communication skills.
