How often do you hear people say – I do this because its my passion? I’m not even sure exactly what “a passion” is, Let me tell you a story.

When I left school, I worked as a welder in the shipyards, I hated it. I moved to London and worked on building sites for a while, I hated it. I became a telecommunications engineer, I travelled the world and enjoyed what I did, but at the time, I had no vision that I was doing anyone any real good.

I became a social worker, I loved it, but the stress levels didn’t love me back. I became a trainer, teaching people computer skills, I loved it. My boss sent me to a public speaking club, because he was too cheap to pay for a presentation skills course, something clicked. The round of applause I received after my first speech, made me realise, that this was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

Perhaps I went on a bit of an ego trip. I became a competitive speaker and have won nearly every recognised speaking contest in the UK. I loved the crowds, I loved the applause and as you can see from the photo above, I loved collecting the trophies.

But then something else happened, people recognised my success and my expertise and asked me to help them improve. Something else clicked. Seeing someone, who came to me with little skill, deliver a highly polished presentation was a real buzz. Getting feedback from people saying their conversion rates had gone up made me feel really proud.

Finally I had found something that I loved doing, which also made a difference to people. It wasn’t just the Public Speaking I enjoyed, Speaker Coaching gave me a massive sense of fulfilment and is now primary business. If that’s what a passion is, then I do this because its my passion


Having won over 100 competitions, many of them for Speaker Coaching, I can justifiably claim to be among the top coaches and speakers and in the UK. If you want to benefit from my skills then please get in touch via the contact page or call me +44 7785 933 309

I can provide Speaker Coaching to people at any level of expertise, from those who have a deep fear of Public Speaking, right through to those who are already experts but need that extra something to make them stand out from the crowd.

There is a standard programme which is suited to beginning and intermediate level speakers, and I offer bespoke programmes for the more advance Professional Speakers. I also offer short focussed coaching sessions to those who have a single purpose, like a wedding speech or a business presentation.

Everything I do is based around you, so even the standard programme will be tailored to your needs. This is real coaching and not a video programme.

There are many facets to Public Speaking. Whether it be writing your speech, creating your slides or making the final presentation, I can offer you an existing solution, or design a bespoke programme that directly addresses your needs.

Most clients opt for a bespoke coaching service as everyone’s needs differ. Speaker Coaching Programmes can last anywhere from a few weeks to a full year, or even longer, if you have an ongoing need. I can also offer short intense courses for groups or individuals who have a need to learn fast.
