In Jane’s coaching sessions, the aim is to motivate and enable clients to communicate at their very best level – whether that be public speaking, performance or writing.

She particularly enjoys working with writers who need to present their work in writing showcases or festivals and want to improve their presentation.

“I went to see Jane before reading one of my stories to a large audience at a literature festival.

She gave me excellent advice on delivery, timing, emphasis, body language and much more. The reading went so well that the organiser emailed me ‘Your reading just gets better and better. Brilliant performance last night.’ Much of that performance was due to Jane.”

Andrew Stevenson, Author & Short Story writer

Often people have plenty of raw talent and important things they want to say, but they lack the confidence to speak on a public platform. They think some people just have that natural confidence and others do not. When Jane performs, she regularly meets audience members who ask her…

How do you do that?

Surprisingly, a lot of performers are not as extrovert or confident as they may appear. They have simply adopted the key tools of communication that help them to deliver a convincing message. Jane believes we can all learn those skills, if we are willing to put some dedicated time and practice into the process.

Key tools for speaking in public

When standing before an audience, you need to consider the following:

  • Confidence – engage others with your subject
  • Facial expression – eye contact is especially key
  • Vocal tone – variety and pitch – make it interesting
  • Articulation – clear diction – clarity is key
  • Volume – can your audience hear you?
  • Posture – body language speaks more than you think!

In specially tailored one-2-one sessions Jane will give tips and tailored exercises designed to help improve all of these essential public speaking tools.

Each session provides space for clients to try out their ideas and presentations in a postive environment, where confidence is built through practice and constructive feedback.
