CONFIDENCE IN THE SPOKEN WORD
Be confident that you are getting your message across effectively. Learn the techniques necessary for engaging your audience and creating impact. I'll help you finesse your content, pace and tone of delivery, give you tips on body language and how to establish rapport. Practice sessions are filmed and critiqued to bring out the best in you as an individual.
Replace interview nerves with confidence.
This session involves learning techniques that will enable you to demonstrate your abilities and not only take control, but enjoy, the interview process. Whether for a job interview or a university application, we will go through anticipated questions, body language and how to put your best and true self forward.
Being interviewed by the media can be a daunting and nerve-wracking experience. Having 15 years experience of conducting interviews for BBC News, I can tell you exactly how to come across well, get your message across and handle difficult questions for all media outlets, whether live or pre-recorded.
All sessions are bespoke and totally dependent on your needs. They are normally carried out in your place of work or where you will be making your presentation if possible. Coaching for interviews can be carried out at a location of your choice.
SHORT COURSE OF PERSONALISED SESSIONS
When preparing for a seminar or public speaking it it advisable to have a series of three one hour sessions that are at least a day apart. This gives you time to rehearse and learn. Firstly we would look at the content together, whether this is your notes, power point presentation or a discussion about what you want to say. Then we rehearse and I film, playback and give you a critique. We work on the salient points and then rehearse, film and playback again.
ONE OFF INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS
These are best suited to individuals preparing for interview, whether it is for school leavers, university or job applicants. It gives you an opportunity to rehearse and to have some honest feedback about how you come across. I give tips on how to overcome nerves and to make sure you not only answer questions impressively but also ask the right questions yourself. For university applicants I can also help to prepare personal statements which are often used as a basis for interview.
Group sessions are a good introduction if you have several employees or school leavers who want to learn the basics of presenting, how to interview or be interviewed effectively and techniques for building a rapport with clients. Sessions normally include role play where the participants have a chance to practice. These sessions do not lend them selves so well to filming the individual but are very helpful in boosting confidence and team-building.
Having worked in television and radio for 20 years, as a producer and video journalist for BBC TV News, I have considerable experience in interviewing people and identifying the clips that will be used for broadcast.
My background gives me a unique expertise in being able to assess how and why people come across well when speaking, and how to make a point effectively.
I’ve interviewed Prime Ministers, industry chiefs and celebrities, as well as very nervous, camera-shy lay-people, so I can teach you how to vary your technique depending on whom you’re dealing with and what the audience is.
My focus is on the spoken word and how it is presented, a skill developed through experience in script writing and news reading. I give personalized training which provides the tools you need to bring out the best in your performance.
