Consultancy & Public Speaking


The Prioritising People Partnership is the bedrock of my consultancy services.  Your people are your number one resource and will have a large hand in the future success of your business, so it’s crucial they’re on side and up to the task.

This culture change programme involves us working together on an ongoing basis, for a minimum period of six months, to help you improve employee engagement and develop your people.

Turning the tide

Employee engagement issues commonly stem from a lack of clarity or the absence of common goals, which can cause a disconnect between different parts of the business and negatively impact individual teams.

Significant organisational change is often the underlying cause of the breakdown in communication. Rapid growth, changes in management/ownership, or a family business being passed down, can negatively impact staff morale and performance. When change happens quickly, or unexpectedly, the ripple effect can be even more severe.

That’s why it’s important to have a culture that champions employee engagement, to keep everyone pulling in the same direction.

An employee engagement strategy

Once we have the plans in place for the future direction of the business, we’ll be ready to tell your employees and get them excited for what the future holds.

Here’s a brief insight into how we’ll go about this:

  1. Vision (notes: use icons for each of these 5 aspects)

What does success look like to you? What are some quick wins we can take advantage of?

We will work together to define where you want to be.

  • Strategy

We’ll consider how we’re going to make your vision a reality and set about putting the goals in place to develop your people and culture.

  • Development

We’ve been busy putting the plans in place and now it’s time for action! This is where the vision and big ideas really get road-tested and implemented by your management team. For this stage to be successful, we recommend the Courageous Leadership programme to develop your managers ability to lead change.  [Download the brochure]

  • Monitoring and celebrating

We monitor the progress of everything we’ve done and how your people have developed since we started implementing our plans. We can adjust as necessary and review our goals; and of course, we’ll celebrate the successes we’ve enjoyed – an important part of staying on track.

  • Sustainability

We’ll analyse the partnership in detail and see how we can improve on everything that we’ve achieved so far.

A true partnership

For the Prioritising People Partnership to be a success, I need to immerse myself into your business and really get to know your people to make change happen. To do this effectively, I can’t take on every client. I’m selective to make sure I can devote the time needed to get us to where we want to be. It’s a tailored relationship put together just for you, not a tick-box exercise. I’ll be your coach in every sense of the word – there when you need me.

Contact me today and let’s start laying the foundations for an exciting future. Just call me on 01254 443460 or 07896 950017.

Public Speaking

You are your number one tool when it comes to promoting your business. But to get all the benefits that come with putting yourself out there, you need to overcome your fears.

Designed to build your confidence when promoting your business, my Courageous Communication Programme will make sure you leave a lasting impression on prospects and close more business. Your senior management and any sales-focused individuals will benefit too.

It’s not about a confidence boost, it’s about building sustainable confidence that stays with you for a long time. It’s about changing your perception and mindset when it comes to public speaking and all things self-promotion.

Fear public speaking? You’re not alone

Did you know that glossophobia, or the fear of public speaking, is the number one fear people have – ahead of a fear of spiders, and even dying?! That’s how hard it can be for a lot of people, even in the business world. The people who seem to exude the most confidence are often those struggling the most on the inside.

I’ve had to overcome this fear for myself; I was terrified of public speaking 10 years ago. Now, I’ve hosted local business awards with over 250 in attendance and spoken at international conferences with over 1000 delegates. If I can do it, so can you. I want to help you get to a place where you thrive in front of an audience and you’re always excited to tell people how your business can help them.

Courageous Communication – The Programme

Over a 2-day programme delivered at your premises, I’ll show you and your team how to confidently get your message across. Whether that’s speaking at a conference, presenting in meetings, or delivering company briefings; I’ll help you increase your impact.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Create a confident connection with your audience and grab their attention
  • Create a positive first impression with the right body language
  • Learn to be more natural and relaxed to overcome nerves
  • Build your personal credibility, backed by evidence
  • Deliver with energy and enthusiasm
  • Structure your pitch to persuade
  • WOW your audience and create buy-in
  • Handle tough questions and audience members while maintaining composure
  • Think on your feet to respond to objections
  • And of course; overcome your fears

Designed to help your people on an individual level, the programme offers one-to-one coaching for up to 8 people. On completion you’ll get digital materials to keep and refer to, and each person will receive a certificate confirming their attendance.

Is it for you?

Do you prefer business to come to you rather than going out and fearlessly bringing it in? Do your employees keep themselves to themselves? Do you simply believe that you’re not good with people…?

I’d love to speak to you and show you that change is possible.

Businesses are simply a collection of people, so how you communicate will have a large bearing on your success.

It’s time to show how passionate you are with confidence, build your influence, and help clients identify with you so they choose you over the competition.
