Coaching, talks and resources to help you become an effective communicator
You don't need to be an Oscar winning actor - you just need tactics and a chance to try them out - with an experienced supportive coach
Explore what is going on in your mind and other people's minds and how to engage listeners with your 'pitch' without losing your authentic voice.
Video is proven to be effective - use it for building relationships and credibility - don't let a 'no good at it' mindset stop you! It's like any other skill - /tactics/practice and feedback.
This pervasive, joy-leeching self-doubt needs spotting and managing - I know from experience. We can cover it in 1:1 coaching but I also offer workshops and talks.
A little about my experience
I understand the value of having objective feedback and being able to try things out in a safe and supportive space - as an actor it is what I get when working with good directors!
There are so many transferable skills between acting and business communication - all involving an audience of some kind of course. Plus - I used to be shy!
First step of the coaching journey
Let's arrange a 30 minute consultation/mini-coaching session - no charge. We get to know each other. Once I know more about your coaching goal then I can write up a proposal for your consideration should you wish.
Submit the contact form below and I will respond within 24 hours. If you would like to communicate by email in the first instance then give me your email detail - if you would like me to phone you - then give me the best contact number.
What is on your mind?
Speaking in a way that engages and inspires an audience is a business skill essential.
We work on all aspects of public speaking to ensure you are using what you have in a the best possible way. We look at how you will resonate through story and engage through a clear flowing structure. We work on finding your voice and using it effectively. Use me for a crafting your content and rehearsing or working on managing a fear of public speaking.
Overwhelm is a big issue for business owners, entrepreneurs and start-ups - as well as those in leadership roles within organisations. Clarity is the antidote for overwhelm and an essential requirement for effective communication.
We will do the forensics! You take things back to basics, deconstruct and find the links, the clear objectives and the tactics to ensure your internal and external communication is in a healthy state.
Recommend Director's Chair Coaching
Ever had that niggling voice in your head that keeps telling you that you are not up for the challenge or others are somehow more worthy than you?
How about the pervasive and irrational kind of self-doubt that has you staying up all night to create something perfect - because anything less will have you found out as the fraud you are! (That is your brain playing tricks).
There are various ways in which self-doubt presents itself and many knock-on effects that you need to be aware of and have tactics to manage. I have an area of special interest in 'impostor syndrome' - delivering talks/workshops and a weekly newsletter. It is a topic that normally comes up during coaching - because it is a human condition.
What can coaching do for you?
I’ve made a start of banishing irrational fears.
Highly recommend Trisha and her approach to all those professionals who are wanting to improve their presenting and videoing skills. You might,like me, get to enjoy it. It is I believe an essential skill in today’s business world and doing it well is important.
The structuring of content, believing in less is more, and the techniques to adopt to improve your delivery of the content matters in equal proportions, I found invaluable. My journey continues but at least I’ve made a start of banishing irrational fears.
Trisha has helped to me come up with new ways to describe what I am all about
I was introduced to Trisha because I wanted to get a whole lot better at that one thing a lot of us dread the most......Public Speaking! Dun dun dun! I am now into my second run of sessions with Trisha and it has been a great journey. She has helped me understand breathing techniques and many other tools to help engage your audience. I have always found it difficult talking about my business and myself. Trisha has helped to come up with new and exciting ways to describe what I am all about. Communication is key to any business, so if you are serious about succeeding you should really give some sessions with Trisha serious thought.
I felt like my audience was really engaging in everything I was saying.
I had never networked before. We worked on the 60 second pitch. Trisha is very experienced and really helped me nail this. The next time I pitched I felt confident my audience was really engaging in everything I was saying.
Trisha peels back the layers.
It’s not everyday you meet someone like Trisha, but when you do, you’ll wish you met her much sooner!
Trisha has the ability to effortlessly capture and keep the attention of an individual, a table or a whole room. When it came to addressing my own presentation skills, for me it was a no-brainer to seek coaching from her.
