Speaking and Communicating

I just love talking and presenting!

I share with you the techniques and tricks I learnt to be a confident – and enjoyable to listen to! – speaker, whether 1-1, to a team, on video, or on stage.

With my media training and some 180 public speaking engagements behind me, I share how to be storytelling, body language, tone and pace,  presentation tricks to start speaking with confidence and influence.


Like any set of skills, leadership qualities are a mixture of an innate set of personality traits and what is learned.
But nothing is set in stone.
Even if you struggle with empathy, delegation or confidence we can work together on building these traits to be a better leader.
We will explore your strengths and areas to improve through a series of assessments, discussions and action plans.
Then we will practice them.

Michael is a fantastic coach and really helped me when it came to changing careers…..and the advice he gave me to help me find my future path has been invaluable. Highly recommend his services!” Laura B

Michael is a modest man so I should like to blow the trumpet for him. Vast business experience over the years of dealings at all levels and at the human level a deep understanding of the types of personal issues that most of us experience and have to cope with alongside our business obligations.” Simon D

Working with Michael was a life changing experience. He helped me to reach new heights in my career and is trustworthy, always encouraging, and a patient and insightful guide. I can’t thank Michael enough for the impact he’s had. I’m eternally grateful”. GM

Michael was great. He brought humour and fun to the coaching and opened my eyes to my potential (I was suffering from terrible imposter syndrome). I found my self belief and confidence, learnt some new skills, and have really started to accelerate my professional ambitions ” BB
