Executive Coaching in Public Speaking and Communication

Our Authentic Speaking® Executive Coaching Program creates powerful communicators, helping senior executives and CEOs to develop public speaking and communication skills so that they can connect with, influence and inspire their audiences.

As a leader, you don't want to trust your development to an internal competitor or subordinate, but to a partner who is experienced in creating communicators who get tremendous personal and business results. You need someone who will work with you to overcome barriers to confidence and communication and to create outstanding presence and influence.


Peter McLean, Executive CoachAs Executive Coaches we help you:

  • Go to the "next level" on the local, national or international stage
  • When you are moving to a significant position within the C-Suite
  • To bring more "Presence" to your roles
  • Lead your organisation through change
  • Engage and Energise your people
  • Become a higher profile presence in your industry
  • Convey confidence and persuade through the media and community
  • Work with your high potential leaders to become high ability speakers
  • By giving you honest feedback
  • Ensure that you communicate powerfully
  • Use our expertise to help you achieve your goals

We have worked with numerous CEOs, MDs and high level executives and business owners to help them achieve positive and lasting change as speakers. Our Client Successes demonstrate the breadth of our experiences and the success of our approach.

Peter works with you in a private and personalised program that focuses on your needs. Together, we create a schedule that involves not only our coaching sessions, but may also involve "live coaching" at pre-determined events, stakeholder 360 degree interviews, analysis of speaking successes, speech writing collaboration and more. Coaching sessions may be held at your office, one of our offices or a convenient off-site location, or in the privacy of your home by arrangement.

Your coaching program and investment is arranged up front, as we prefer to take a value-based fee approach in all of our work - so we will agree on the overall value to you and your organisation up front and create a plan for achieving your goals. We will work towards achieving those goals over an agreed time frame that best suits your needs and the change and support required.
