Master the art of public speaking through storytelling & pronunciation
Public speaking for executives and students for whom English is a second language
Welcome! If you are reading this page, there’s a good chance that you are a successful executive who is thriving in this country. You have a job and you are respected. However, you may not feel totally confident when speaking English, and you have so much to say. You want to give presentations and have people hang on to your every word.
Perhaps you are an international student and are seeking a job in this country. You’re nervous about job interviews, and about your communication skills in general.
You have both come to the right place.
Most public speaking coaches work with native English speakers on their public speaking. Speech pathologists often work with non-native English speakers on accent reduction. I am one of the few communications coaches in the Melbourne and Geelong area who specialises in the needs of people like you, for whom English is not your mother tongue.
Together, we will use a unique, targeted approach with three parts to help you become great public speaker:
- Your pronunciation
- Your voice
- Storytelling (we’ll get to that in a bit)
You speak English fluently, but certain sounds may give you difficulty, and you feel that people sometimes do not understand what you are saying. Together we will identify those sounds, and with enjoyable exercises that you’ll practice at home, you’ll start speaking more clearly after our first session.
Does your voice communicate all that you have to offer? Great speakers use their voice like they use an instrument. We’ll work on your voice as if it’s a violin as we practice your intonation, pitch, and other crucial vocal tools.
Just as important: I am committed to making you a great storyteller.
Your success in public speaking through storytelling
The world’s best communicators have one thing in common: they are great storytellers. They understand how to use stories to create a powerful bond with the audience.
If you don’t have a powerful story to tell, you will not gain the trust, or interest, of the audience. This is true, no matter how well you speak English!
If you can master your story, you can master the world
Whether you are giving a paper at a conference, presenting a sales pitch or writing a business email, you need to be a great storyteller
I am a public speaking and communications coach who will help you craft the story you need to tell.
What form will your story take?
- Speech or business presentation
- An elevator pitch to help you network
- A CV or a job interview
- A piece of writing: annual report, business emails, etc.
- Website or social media copy
I can help you become a master storyteller so you can let the world know all you have to offer.
