ON A PERSONAL NOTE

Thank you for coming to my website and enquiring about my services.

Around ten years ago I was quite possibly the shyest person you could ever meet. I could barely speak to my own mum without breaking into a sweat! I didn’t do well at school or college when I was younger and had to drop out of university due to severe depression.

I managed to pull myself back into work and after some time an opportunity arose in the company that I was working for at the time to deliver some training and I jumped at the chance. Then realised I would have to speak in front of people :O

Over a solid six months I transformed myself from an insecure, negative, depressed, and overweight loner into someone who actually had a chance at a future.

Ten years later I have won several awards, completed my degree in business management and achieved the top score in the cohort, managed to convince a beautiful woman to marry me, been promoted several times, started my own business and persuaded a FTSE 100 company to pay for my degree!

I know what it takes to make a mind shift from social recluse to confident go-getter, and I understand the fast route to go from terrified speaker to sage of the stage!

I’ve made all the mistakes and now I teach others to conquer their fears and deliver professional and engaging presentations that are persuasive and emotive.

When I’m not helping others to create their winning stories and presentations I create my own narratives and stories using real life case studies to create blogs, short films, and mini docs.

I look forward to working with you 🙂
