Are you an entrepreneur with a fantastic product or service?


Do you love what you do? But dread the moment when you have to go out and pitch to clients?


Or maybe you don't dread it but would really like to improve your skills.


In six weeks you can develop confidence, clarity, purpose and presence in your pitches. Build stronger client relationships and create enticing calls to action.


Clients have taken up opportunities they would have previously turned down, created compelling pitches and made sales they didn't believe possible.



Stop missing out on opportunities and start making an impact with your pitches.



This course has been designed and is delivered by qualified professional voice coaches with decades of experience of live and virtual coaching.



In a nutshell:

You will have techniques to channel nerves and anxiety before every pitch.

You will gain personal and professional confidence.

You will still sound like you but clearer and more confident.

You will have quick ways to prepare yourself and deliver confident pitches.

You will start taking up the opportunities you are currently turning down.

That means more of the kinds clients you want.




The nuts & bolts:

You will have access to 5 hours of instructional video that you can work through at your pace, downloadable documents to support your learning, live group sessions, 1:1 coaching with detailed targeted feedback.



What this is not:

This is not about sales techniques - you can have the most effective techniques available to you but if you can't effectively connect with your audience your ability to really solve their problems and develop long term relationships will be limited.

Storytelling for Business

Registration opens soon...


 

Emma has made me realise (and analyse!) just how important good communication is to us all, in all walks of life. I could not recommend her highly enough…”



Emma has 12 plus years’ experience in coaching communication skills in the private and public sectors. She is able to draw on skills developed in clinical practice as a Speech and Language Therapist, in Sales and Marketing in Global Pharmaceuticals, from being Director of Operations at an Event Management Company and crucially, from her MA in Voice Studies from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, providing her clients with cohesive and relevant training and coaching. 

Working with Emma was a big confidence boost.

... at a time when I needed to prepare for a video presentation.


I found Emma to be warm, funny, empathic, encouraging, highly professional and very knowledgeable.


The work we did together was supportive and immediately practical. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Emma and I'm certain I will be using her skills again in the future.



Wendy Rose

ICF Master Coach


It really has been life changing for me.

...when I came to talking about my work, my nerves often made talking about my work difficult and very uncomfortable. Even though I would plan what I had to say, I would easily loose track or stumble / rush through a talk.


After the programme, I feel much more confident about my ability to talk effectively about my work. I am able to remain much calmer using the many techniques offered. 


I though this was a an exemplary online learning experience!

I don’t think that the benefits of the training are restricted purely to my business...

“I had always considered myself to be a relatively confident communicator as I deliver my own workshops, however, Emma made me realise that there is so much more to the art of presenting. She is incredibly knowledgeable and personifies in her own delivery all the skills you are aspiring to learn.


I had live Zoom sessions with Emma and they were as close to being in the room with someone as you could get. She invested an incredible amount of time into pre-session videos that put the onus on you to invest and prepare making sure we were accountable and unable to just drift through the sessions. This ensured I gained the maximum from the training.


I don’t think that the benefits of the training are restricted purely to my business, they will help in all areas of my life. Emma has made me realise (and analyse!) just how important good communication is to us all, in all walks of life. I could not recommend her highly enough…”

Frequently Asked Questions:


How much time will I need to invest?

There is about 5 hours worth of video ranging from 5 min- 25 mins. Some of the exercises you can complete within that time frame. Others you will need to take more time.

Some of the exercises benefit from daily repetition but it is up to you when and where you do this. Or, if you do it at all!

As with most training the more you put in the more you'll get out.


How will you support my learning?

Each module is made up of videos explaining theory, practice and exercises for you to access and complete in your own time frame.

At the end of each module you will book yourself into a coaching session to review your learning, receive peer and coach feedback and set the scene for your next module. So on this course you will get three sessions of coaching, with at least 10 mins one-to-one in each session.

Some of the lesson there are downloadable documents that will assist you in completing the exercises.

You will also have email access to a coach for the duration of your course should need clarification about any aspect of your learning.

You also have the option to purchase additional one-to-one coaching sessions if you feel that would benefit your learning.


Actors are just pretending why would you use theatre skills?

Actors are trained to have stage presence. A good one can stand and breathe and do little else and still capture you attention.

We take the training that actors receive around physical and vocal presence and apply it to business scenarios. Effective actors find the real truth of a situation and when they do it has the power to move us.

As an entrepreneur you want to authentically connect with and influence your audience, moving them towards your ideas, product or service; presence and truth with do just that.


Are you going to make me pretend to be a tree or melting ice-cube?

Absolutely not!

We use theatre theory and practice but we also blend that with business theory, organisational psychology and coaching practices.

We will move around and use our body, breath and voice perhaps in ways you haven't before, but always with the end goal in mind of creating engaging, impactful pitches.

You will also be able to do all the exercises in the privacy of your own home or meeting room.


Is there a test?

No. There are no tests and in fact I would encourage you to ditch the idea of right and wrong now they aren't helpful concepts. If we think we are getting things wrong the body and voice tense up which is the opposite of what we are aiming for.


I am quite good at pitching, is this the right course for me?

Because of the group and one-to-one coaching offered as part of this course a range of expertise is welcomed - as you will get feedback that will be appropriate to your skill level.

However, if you are very experienced you may be better with a different course. Why not book in for a complimentary Clarity Call on the coaching page to determine the best course for your needs.


I am just starting out in pitching my own business or ideas, is this the right course for me?

Definitely. We will support your learning and development over the coming weeks.

However, if you are very in-experienced you may be better with a different course. Why not book in for a complimentary Clarity Call on the coaching page to determine the best course for your needs.
