Hi, I'm Emma,
I am the founder, creator and senior coach of Speaking at Work.
Welcome to our virtual training and coaching space. I started this company after working in the corporate space for 10 years growing a small business. I loved it and regularly spoke to large audiences, headed up pitches for significant business and coached our clients on how to present. I was a confident speaker, in fact I loved speaking in front of an audience. Then I had a career break when my children were born and gradually that confidence leaked away - my voice began to disappear.
So, me being me, I enrolled in a 1-year, full-time Masters in Voice, at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. It was transformative. I rediscovered my voice and with it a passion for helping others find and use theirs to maximise their potential, take up opportunities they are turning away and helping businesses get their message out there. I love being able to combine the development of the individual with a wider business strategy.
We offer training and coaching at all levels of development; if you can’t find what you are looking for, give us a call and I am sure we can start creating the right course for your team.
This year we have developed and delivered corporate training programmes on Advanced Presentation Skills for IT Professionals, Presence and Impact for Women, Storytelling for Business, Conflict Resolution, Embodied Leadership, Interview Skills, Voice for Business, as well as coaching speakers for TEDx Events. The specific content varies but the approach of working to aligned the body and mind so that effective communication feels effortless remains constant.
