These days many of us have ‘coach’ for loads of things-at the gym, a life coach, a leadership coach, a business coach and the list goes on. Why not a presentation coach?

I have developed this programme for those of you who are either too busy to come along to a series class or who would prefer to have some one on one coaching with me in a private environment.  First consultation is free and from there, if we think that there is some value in working together, we will formulate an approach.  Gain more confidence, more time through astute preparation, more impact and more connections or simply move forward toward excellence.

Investment $250-750 +gst depending on the programme duration.
