Body Language is our most ancient language. And it plays an important role in speaking to an audience, to camera or to the media People judge you the moment they see you. Watch out for the 'silent signals' - you may be sending the wrong ones!
Presentations should be planned and structured (approximately) - introduction 10%, message 80%, conclusion 10%.
"Jane was wonderful. She quickly understood my needs and ran the two hour workshop to meet them perfectly. The Olympic Ambassadors were unanimous in their praise, and many said it was the best public speaking and presentation skills advice they had received. I would totally recommend Jane."

"My groom speech went very well. I stayed calm on the day, kept smiling and I came across clearly - even got a tear from my bride! Very pleased with the result. Our sessions helped massively.
I’m now regularly using the techniques and exercises…. (I learnt with you) …for my business presentations.
Thank-you again for everything."
I’ve had loads of great feedback from our team about your session (on Strategic Storytelling) – people really enjoyed it. You’ve got us thinking about our storytelling telling style and impact – it was wonderful to have you as part of the (training) day. I look forward to working with you again soon.

Thank you very much for a really great training session today. I was frankly terrified when I saw the camera, plus having to do a talk in front of my peers. I just hate anything like this. But you made it non threatening and were very encouraging, so thank you for all the advice and tips.
Thank you so much for your inspirational workshop Jane. We all enjoyed it tremendously and know we learned a lot!
Sabine Willensen Sales and Marketing Manager ‘Mountain Jade’.
I’ve spoken to audiences of up to 100 people and thought I was pretty good at what I do. Then I worked with Jane!
Jane helped me take my keynote speaking to a new level!
She helped me construct my presentation in a way that was precise, informative and authentically me.
"All it took was three sessions, and it was worth every penny.
I delivered my presentation with ease and all the feedback I received was very positive.
Jane's teaching method is systematic and gets results fast. I am happy to recommend her to anyone looking to improve their public speaking skills"

Thank you for coaching me for the wedding ceremony for my sis.
When the time came . . . . . I nailed it! YAY!
I spoke clearly and loud enough for all to hear, had full control of the whole ceremony and best of all, I had everyone in the palm of my hand.
They all enjoyed listening ..and I added my own spark to the event without stealing the attention away from the newly weds.
Just wanted to say thank-you for a great talk last night (to the PWG of 'Dress for Success') - you could have heard a pin drop, leaving the group buzzing with excitement keen to put their next speech to the test.
I for one have re-written my story and will not be shy to put my hand up in future (or will do so with confidence).
Having delivered numerous speeches in the past. I knew I was OK but I wanted to be better than OK.
After a chance meeting with Jane, I immediately employed her services as a coach.

After training with Jane, I gave my talk on Appropriate Image Presentation. They loved it. I got lots of applause and individual thanks from the members.
Thank you so much for the help you gave me and for very quickly getting to the crucial things I needed to change.
When I knew had to speak at my wedding I was dreading it. I never imagined I’d be able to stand up and speak without notes - but with Jane’s help I not only managed it I got fantastic feedback and everyone was very impressed.

"Jane was encouraging, humorous and above all dedicated. My speech was a great success and surprisingly, I enjoyed the experience." "I highly recommend Jane's services."
