One To One Coaching
One-to-One public speaking coaching is an ideal training solution for individuals who want a personal and confidential service. Delivered in Manchester and Cheshire.
Achieving Poise and Polish
The one-to-one service is very much client led. You tell me how you wish to improve and we work together until this is achieved.
Some clients want me to help them achieve a specific speech goal. This might be
- Defining and structuring a keynote speech
- Rehearsing a speech for conference
- Preparing for interview and interview presentations
- Writing and directing them through filmed presentations / videos
- Structuring and delivering a wedding speech or eulogy
- Fine-tuning audition speeches
While other clients want help to generally improve in various 'performance' scenarios. I've worked with clergymen who want to connect with churchgoers, solicitors who want to perform better in court, salespeople who want to enjoy pitching and be more successful at it, managers who've been promoted to leadership roles and need to make inspirational speeches... I also work with clients who want to soften their accents.
While I'm keen to cure the problem areas, I also make clients aware of what they do well innately and work to enhance these qualities.
Confidentiality is at the heart of this service. Clients take all the transformation credit for themselves!
“My sales pitches used to put audiences to sleep. They were too detailed and gave far too much background. Emma taught me how to make a case for the information and apply some storytelling techniques. My conversion rates have gone up dramatically.”
How the Service Works
The time we spend together varies depending on the brief.
For those who are working towards a specific speech, we might meet for 2 x 90-mins sessions. For those who want to improve generally, we might see one another six times over a year.
The coaching can happen in clients' workplaces - this is usual for those whose coaching is being funded by their firm or organisation as part of their personal development plan. But for those who are self-funding, the coaching happens at a venue in Altrincham, south Manchester.

“I considered myself a decent presenter but when I learnt I'd be giving my first speech at conference, I wanted some expert support. Emma gave me that. She helped me define my message, hone my arguments and produce laughs. I've always wanted to do a TedX, and now I feel confident enough to apply.”
