“You really helped me to overcome my performance nerves and deliver the speech in a way that was confident and natural.” – Mark D
“I cannot express strongly enough how much one hour coaching with you helped me in my reading. Everything you taught me, worked. From being a story teller not a speech giver; to looking forward to it, enjoying it and being excited rather than nervous about it; from the way to emphasise and contrast certain words and extend vowels; to the physical breathing and warming up exercises. Thank you for giving me the confidence and ability to do so.” – BH, January 2020
Content and delivery. The two sides of the public speaking coin!
A great speech delivered poorly has no chance of hitting the mark. But with a great script in hand, it is amazing how quickly you can transform your public speaking.
Need some help?
Want to hold an audience’s attention without boring them?
Want to learn techniques to help deal with public speaking nerves?
Want your speech to be memorable in the right ways?
Once you have a script in place (something we are more than happy to help with!) we can make a huge difference in a single coaching session of 60-90 minutes.
Our one-to-one coaching sessions will ensure you’re at the very top of your game. We’ll help you gain the tools and techniques to ensure that your content is given the platform it deserves – to guarantee an engaging, authentic, memorable and professional delivery.
We can offer sessions with specialist coach Alys Metcalffrom as little as £125 + VAT.
Alys has developed the skills of a range of individuals, from those speaking at social engagements – weddings, funerals, birthdays, anniversaries and after dinner events – to helping industry professionals at the top of their corporate fields.
Some clients request a series of coaching sessions (and in some cases ask us to visit the venue in advance).
If you have any questions about the sessions, or to book visit our contact page.

What session is right for me?
A single session can focus on your immediate needs for a particular event and give you an introductory taste of what can be improved.
A programme will focus on your specific needs and make you a better speaker over a series of sessions. These can be done in person as well as over Skype.
What will happen during the session?
Just as no two people are the same, each session is unique and tailored to your specific needs. By all means, please feel free to come in with something specific you want to work on, however Alys will also identify any particular areas of improvement to focus on during the session. At the end, you’ll be given a Top Tips For Delivery A Speech pack, containing helpful suggestions and exercises to take away with you.
How long will a session last?
We recommend at least an hour for a session. However, depending on how much improvement there is to make, certain clients prefer repeat, or longer sessions.
Where do the sessions take place?
Either at our London offices (in Highgate) or Alys is able to travel to you.
“The writing and delivery training was pitched at just the right level. I was impressed at the huge improvements we all made over the two days, particularly as most of the course was filled with “light-bulb” moments. No matter the level of experience of writing and presenting papers, etc., I believe this course is essential and will heartily recommend it to colleagues who might be considering whether to attend. This will help to drive real change in the culture of the company.” – Rob F, Sept
