Coaching Programs - Individuals

A Coaching Program is crafted for individuals seeking to become powerful communicators.

We begin with assessment and setting goals through an interview and discussion with you. This can also be tied into feedback from colleagues and assessment of videotaped presentations that you have already delivered.


The Program's intensity will be designed based on your needs and desire for speedier, dramatic results.

Typical programs may have an intensive period over a number of weeks and/or include meeting at least once a month for 2-3 hours over the program duration. Programs often run over a six-month or longer duration.

We devise a schedule around your speaking engagements such as presentations, meetings, awards nights or your AGM. This way, you are working on real presentations through your coaching. By taping the results, we also have your results for analysis and feedback, so that you can make tremendous, evidence-based improvements over time.

Shorter sessions may be scheduled for rehearsal immediately prior to that important event. These may be conducted at the site for your presentation.

During sessions, you will speak under the coach's guidance - sometimes on a topic that you have prepared in advance, sometimes on impromptu topics. You will be videotaped frequently and use this tape for real-time evaluation and improvement. Your coach will be seeking to use your own natural strengths, passions and experiences throughout, so that you can be authentic and persuasive for your audience.

Coaching Programs - Teams

Team Presenting presents its own unique challenges in sales, proposal presentations, competitions and conferences.


We begin with assessment and setting goals through discussion with the chief sponsor or team leader. We can assess team delivery in its current form - through observation or video analysis.


A team program focuses on the interplay between team members, strengths of individual members, stage/area usage, support and delivering a strong central message.

We work with the team to examine issues of energy and enthusiasm and consistency of message.

Many of the Program elements of individual coaching may be included in team coaching, dependent on need and urgency. Time allowing, formats and structures may be prepared, the team may be videotaped and rehearsals may be organised in a preparatory environment or on site.

Additionally, team leaders are coached in being the bridge between presenters, shoring up arguments/positions and helping their team to perform at their best throughout the presentation.

A Partnership

For best results, we should work with your team well in advance of the required event.
