"Judith works mini-miracles in building confidence, boosting self-esteem, and improving communication skills, but can do much more too."Alan Guindi, MD, Richard Hochfeld
What Results Do I Create?
Confident Communicators. Clear, Constructive, Conversations.
Nerves and concerns don't discriminate; whether you are on the board, in the c-suite, a director, manager, or team member - everyone has situations in which they would like to feel more clear, comfortable and confident expressing themselves.
I work with leaders, emerging leaders, and team members to enhance public speaking, presentation and communication skills.
I offer tools and techniques to speak with more clarity, confidence and conviction; in any situation.
Whether online or in-person, whether your audience is a client pitch, team meeting, peer presentation, a thousand people at conference, or a one-to-one challenging conversation; everyone has different requirements and challenges when speaking in front of others.
What you need is someone who can help you understand where those nerves, challenges and concerns come from, someone objective and supportive who approaches things from a different angle, someone who won’t ignore your bad habits but help you find ways to address them, someone who can give you a clear method to follow and transferable skills for work and life. Someone like me.
BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH ME:
Individuals will save large amounts of stress created and time wasted worrying about speaking, presentations, or imagining potential conflict.
They will gain not just vocal confidence but more self-confidence, self-belief, self-worth and self-esteem. This work gives people simple and effective tools and techniques, skills that once learnt and implemented are with you to call upon whenever you need; skills that are with you for life.
A company that has a culture of clear communication will not only gain a reputation for being a better place to work, one that cares about its staff, but also bottom-line will improve staff retention and save time and money on sick pay, colleagues covering each other, re-training and recruitment.
What do I offer?
The Whole V.O.I.C.E Method™. Talks & Workshops. Public speaking and presentation skills. Coaching.
Public speaking and presentations are an important and desirable key element of what I offer with both the workshops and 1-2-1 coaching.
There is also a vital element around communication that is often forgotten. That is the ability to have a conversation that you believe may be challenging or confrontational and which might create conflict.
I am passionate about supporting companies to create a culture of clear communication, and giving people the skills to support that culture.
This is why I created The Whole V.O.I.C.E Method™ which transforms challenging conversations from confronting to constructive. This benefits mental health, enhances leadership skills, and equates to happier staff, better relationships, more productivity and has bottom line savings too.
Too many people are afraid of 'what might happen' if they express the challenges they're experiencing - so instead of saying anything they let things build until they are suffering with overwhelm, depression, or thinking about resigning - when there is no need. What they need is to have the conversation they are avoiding, but they don't know how.
Often the people affected 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 bigger personalities.
Sometimes, it is the people with those bigger personalities who don't want to appear 'weak' or don't know how to ask for help or say 'no' to more work when the task has got too overwhelming ... but they take it on anyway and don't tell anyone usually because they don't know something is wrong until it's too late and they break.
This is also why I created The Whole V.O.I.C.E Method™.
Ignoring the importance of people being able to express themselves will be costing your company in people, in time, in money, and sometimes in life.
The old-school culture of people thinking that to succeed you need to suffer with stress just doesn't work any more.
The build-up of 'little things' goes unnoticed: until something cracks.

“I would recommend Judith’s coaching service without hesitation.” (Ian Corbin Head of Operational Due Diligence)
Work with the powerful combination of coaching, performance techniques and exploring your voice vibration energy.
One-to-one sessions are perfect to make deep, lasting, personal change in your approach to speaking and communication.
This is for you whether you are you are moving into a new leadership position with different speaking and communication expectations, if you are in the c-suite wanting to freshen up your approach or reconnect to what’s important in what you do, or if you are at the start of your career and being asked to deliver your first presentations and needing to speak up and share ideas in team meetings,
Individual sessions are personal, private and fully confidential, in which we work on whatever you need. I offer a range of options including 1-3 day intensives, more relaxed speech-creation sessions and 60 or 90 day ongoing support programmes.
“After working with Judith, I had an awkward conversation I had been avoiding for a year. Not only was it effortless (thanks to Judith), the bullying behaviour person no longer holds any power over me, and I secured an annual support and maintenance contract worth £80K. Stress, anxiety, and financial security – sorted!”
(Kevin Treweek – I.T. Solutions)
