And we should all have an answer for this question if we're in business! Doesn't have to be heavy or existential - but something about what we stand for, our values.

I'm a public speaking and presentation skills coach and trainer based in Melbourne Australia. I run public and in-house workshops, coach individuals and speak to groups on these three fundamental speaking skills:
- Building confidence
- Engaging your audience
- Increasing your stage presence
I use proven techniques from a wide range of research in:
- the latest neuroscience on presentation and communication skills
- the performing arts
- mindfulness practices
My original training is in the performing arts as a Classical pianist. A successful career as a young musician, which included performing in the Purcell Room at Festival Hall London, was nearly ruined by performance fear which took hold in my mid twenties. My way back was through learning how to speak in public. (I still occasionally play in chamber music or vocal recitals around Victoria.)
I have a Master's degree in Piano Performance. I'm also a certified trainer, with my TAE40110 Cert. IV in Training and Assessment.
