You're tired of being asked to repeat yourself. And you're tired of seeing 'that look' on people's faces.
You just want to be clearly understood.
You don't need to lose your natural accent, just make a few changes.
I can help you find clarity and accuracy in your spoken English, so you won't have to say everything twice.
You're good at your job, you know your stuff. But you're not always happy with how you come across.
Maybe you speak quite softly, or quickly, or the tone of your voice is a bit flat.
Or maybe you just don't feel a sense of connection with the people you're speaking to.
I can help you be a better, more confident communicator.
I read English at the University of Oxford, where I specialised in Linguistics, and went on to train in voice, diction and accents at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
As an actor I've worked extensively in theatre, TV and radio, with companies including the National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the BBC and Channel 4, so I have a wealth of practical applicable experience in how to use voice to really affect people.
As a voice and communication skills coach, I've been running workshops and doing bespoke training in presentation, communication and influencing skills for over 10 years, for a wide range of corporate clients including Google, Adidas, BNY Mellon, KPMG, PwC and Baxter Healthcare.
And personally, I know what it's like to be conscious of how you speak: we moved around a lot when I was a child, so my accent went through many changes. Wherever we were, I was the one who talked weird! But my early experiences are what sparked my fascination with speech and accent, and why I've developed a sensitive ear for how people speak.
All in all, I bring all my professional skills and a lot of personal empathy to my work as a speech and accent coach. I would love to be able to use both to help you work towards your goals as a communicator.
