Mayoral Training

One to one coaching for mayor elects 

Mayor-Making Support

Having a confident and charismatic mayor who can work a room and address a crowd effectively and professionally is a bonus for any council. And one who looks for moments to subtly promote the council is even more of an asset. But how many mayor elects possess these skills innately? And how many are aware of the huge difference just a little preparation can make?

Mayor-Making Support is a one to one coaching service that equips mayor elects with preparation formulas and practical personal presence techniques so they can do themselves, their party and their council justice. 

The coaching content is tailored to the needs of the mayor elect, but it can cover:

  • Preparing and rehearsing a speech for the mayor making ceremony
  • Practicing the order of service and its responses for the mayor making ceremony
  • Scripting and rehearsing a speech for an incoming service
  • Structuring short ‘saying a few words’ speeches for public events
  • Networking skills
  • Handling awkward or surprising questions

Fees vary depending on how much support the mayor elect needs. Typically, no more than 2 x 2-hour sessions are required.
