Speaker coaching

How we talk about our work matters. Often, those with the most confidence, rather than the best ideas get heard. Similarly, the best researchers are not always the best storytellers.

With this in mind, we coach your experts to become more compelling communicators. We know how to help passionate people tell their stories and share their work in a way that is simple, relatable and accessible.


We support them to retain local realities and refine their focus while cutting through jargon to convey compelling messages about their work to each other and the world.
