Insight into how to present to an audience who may know more than you do - a worthwhile, brief read.
I conducted a presentation workshop last month for a group at Lockheed Martin in Columbus, Ohio. We covered a range of topics, such as delivery techniques, visual aids and managing the nervousness…

Interesting article on the scientific research being done into mindfulness practises - some studies are now showing that mindfulness can be as effective as talk therapy. 
Part of my work with anxious public speaking clients can include this aspect, some people find it very useful. #mindfulness   #publicspeaking

I love yoga, and a regular practice has changed my life in the last few years. I found this video this morning and found it very inspiring: worth taking 5 minutes to watch - determination can take you a long way! Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur's Inspirational Transformation!

Good summary by Erin Gordon of a new book by Rick Carson on working with your inner critic. I spend time working with clients on their inner critic or gremlin so it's a topic I like to research!

I'd agree with Matt's thoughts on questions and presentations: well worth reading, practical and to the point!

Final 2 courses for this year in Melbourne. If you want to become a confident and engaging presenter, worth having a look.

Story
Tagline
presentation skills trainer | coach | speaker
Introduction

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:

  1. Building confidence
  2. Engaging your audience
  3. Increasing your stage presence 


I use proven techniques from a wide range of research in:

  •  the latest neuroscience on presentation and communication skills
  •  psychology
  •  resilience
  •  the performing arts
  •  mindfulness practices
Through extensive research and successful client results, I've developed a clear framework and methodology to enable my clients to reach a whole new level of confidence, clarity and connectedness around their public speaking.

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.
