“What Judith does is so unique and so absolutely necessary to illuminate the whole voice behind your REAL message.”Sammy Blindell | Founder & CEO, How To Build A Brand
Who do I serve?
I am here for you.
I work with leaders, emerging leaders, and team members to use the power of their whole voice when they speak, to create greater connection, growth and results; both personally and professionally.
Everyone has different requirements and challenges when speaking in front of others; whether you are an executive, director, manager, or team member, and whether that audience is a one to one challenging conversation, a pitch, a small team meeting, a peer seminar, or a thousand people at conference.
Enhancing awareness of, and confidence in, your voice and the effect it has, helps to manage personal impact and relationships. Imagine the difference it will make when you are confidently connected to what you want to say: sharing ideas in meetings or speaking at town-halls, be more compelling delivering sales pitches, leading panels, delivering presentations, or making speeches at conference.
What do I offer?
Enhancing your confidence and skills for public speaking and presentations is important and desirable, and a key element of what I offer at the core of the workshops and 1-2-1 coaching.
However, there is also another vital element around communication, and it one one that is often left wanting or forgotten. That is the ability to have a conversation that you believe may be challenging or confrontational. I am passionate about companies creating both a culture where communication is encouraged, and giving people the skills to be able to do so.
Too many people don't speak up when things are going wrong, or when they have ideas that could create a sea-change. Often they are the hard but quiet workers and managers who diligently get things done, who love their job and don't want to 'make waves', who would love promotion but get overshadowed by those who are bigger personalities. Sometimes, they are those bigger personalities, who are so used to being in the front-line, standing up and saying 'yes', they don't know how to ask for help, or say that they're not sure they're up to this task or when the task has got too much, too overwhelming ...but take it on anyway.
This is costing both the individuals and the company. Much of the time people think that to suffer is expected, and the build-up of 'little things' goes unnoticed: until something cracks.
Some of the side effects for the individual are:
Loss of Motivation
Loss of Productivity
Relationship Tension (Personal & Professional)
Suicidal Thoughts or Actions
Some of the side effects for the business are:
Loss of Time
Loss of Money
Lack of Productivity
Increase in Sick Days and 'Sick' Days
Culture of Suffering in Silence from Fear of Recrimination
Unnecessary Resignations leading to Recruitment and Training Costs
When you need to be able to detach from emotions in order to have that potentially challenging conversation. When you want to share your ideas and show people what you can offer. When everything rides on that speech at conference, client-pitch, or presentation.
When it really counts: you need someone who looks at things from a different angle, someone objective, someone who won’t ignore bad habits, someone who can give you transferable skills for work and life. Someone like me.
By connecting what you need to say to your desired end result, by re-connecting your voice to your body, by focusing on what is really important, you will enhance your communication skills and speak with more clarity, confidence and conviction.
Save large amounts of stress created, and time currently wasted, worrying about occasions where speaking in front of others is necessary. Instead gain a life-time’s worth of tools and techniques to call on whenever you need to speak.
Practical, interactive, change-making workshops of half-day, one, or two-days which enhance skills and empower teams with tools and techniques to put in to immediate effect.
These workshops also highlight those areas which individuals would like to improve through individual development sessions.
It is recommended that a follow-up ‘Surgery Session’ is scheduled for 4-6 weeks after the initial workshop.
“A very worthwhile course, we should all be doing more of this.”
“Made the unenjoyable enjoyable!”
(Numis Securities – ½ day Workshop Feedback)
“Amazing day. Thank you so much! Great advice on managing my nerves and using my true voice. Feeling much more confident already” (Tanya – 1-day workshop)
Work with the powerful combination of coaching, performance techniques and exploring your voice vibration energy.
Whether you are in the c-suite wanting to freshen up your approach, or reconnect to what’s important in what you do, if you are moving in to a leadership position with new speaking expectations, or being asked to deliver your first presentations and needing to speak up and share ideas in team meetings; finding the reasons behind your reticence and reviving the passion behind your purpose are the keys to connecting to your whole voice.
Individual sessions are personal, private and fully confidential, in which we work on whatever you need.
I offer a range of options including luxury one-day intensives, more relaxed speech-polishing and 60 or 90 day ongoing support programmes.
I have experienced a full range of public speaking challenges, whether you have had a life-event knock your inner certainty about why you’re doing what you’re doing, are terrified of speaking in front of others, or are confident and want to improve your impact and results.
“I would recommend Judith’s coaching service without hesitation.” (Ian Corbin Head of Operational Due Diligence)
Consulting & Retainers
Grow a culture of clear communication, giving your company access to me on a regular basis.
Particularly effective as a part of a fast-track or leadership programme where your team members will be going through rapid change, facing challenges and learning how to express themselves in multiple situations.
There are various options to use me as a regular resource for any member of staff to practice pitches, speeches or work on improving their overall vocal confidence.
One or half-day monthly retainer options.
“The team were very grateful for the session as it is so easy to slip into bad habits and we agree that we will do a refresher…. I certainly feel there have been marked improvements in joint presentations.”
(Tod Davis, Director, Numis Securities – 1/2 day Workshop)
