Public Speaking For Women
Goddess of Public Speaking Helps Nervous Speakers Become Confident Speakers
Hello, I’m Geraldine Barkworth, public speaking coach and Chief Voice of Goddess Of Public Speaking. I show professional women how to get over speaking fears and get on with making a difference, every time they speak.
Work With Me
If you are so nervous about speaking you’d rather miss the opportunity; If professional speaking is boring for you… and your listeners! You need to learn how to be compellingly relevant and inspire action; Or, if you are ready to jump outside your 1 to 1 comfort zone, speak to a bigger audience and run workshops around the world if only you knew how.
Why Public Speaking Matters Now
– We live in a knowledge economy. Ideas, people and words have power.
– Communication is a core skill. It’s essential to speak well at home, work and life.
– The Internet connects us all – your words are bigger than you – you have global reach.
– There’s too much information clutter. Cut through the blah with clear, meaningful communication.
– Your voice, every voice, matters. You literally can make a difference, one confident conversation at a time.
Since 2002, Goddess of Public Speaking has offered specialised coaching. I mostly work 1:1 via skype, locally and globally as online offers greater flexibility, privacy and convenience. My clients need brilliant interpersonal communication skills to promote, sell or share ideas, products or services. And to speak authentically without the “hard sell”, from 1 to 1,000,000.

I have to eat humble pie and say I didn't expect to learn much at your Workshop. I've done LOADS of speaker training, am an award winning Toastmaster, and thought you'd have little value to add. BOY, was I wrong. I learned so much in the short time we had together. You really disrupted my thinking about presenting. Powerful stuff. Thankyou!
...I've overcome my debilitating fear; I've brought in new business through powerful pitches, I've been commended for my ability to engage a room through storytelling without looking at notes, I've been asked to present at TEDx, and I've even recently been promoted!!!
I was looking for a unique way to learn public speaking and I certainly found it!
Working with Geraldine exceeded my expectations... In the last 18 months I've facilitated over 20 workshops and presentations both in person and online. I've learned that my speaking starts when I come on stage, not when I start talking; I've learned to give a succinct overview first and, I've learned to drop the notes..."
I have indeed found my authentic voice!
The session was amazing. I didn’t talk to my notes at all, I simply had a conversation. I engaged the audience, even I could see the mood of the room uplift. A number of people come up and congratulated me. With only the smallest of coaching from you, I have had an enormous change in my ability to engage an audience as a public speaker. You are truly the Goddess of Public Speaking!
Working with Geraldine taught me how to really connect with my audience, in a way that gets them involved. Pass the microphone thanks – I love any opportunity for public speaking now!
In just three sessions with Geraldine, I went from being an apologetic mess as a speaker to grounded, confident and loving it! Geraldine provides practical tips in combination with advice on finding your own authentic voice. Worth every cent!"
...I've begun to relish the chance to practise my newfound love of public speaking, thankyou so much.
OMG I found my voice! I don’t want to cry when standing up in front of a group and my voice doesn’t quiver anymore. I feel so much more confident, free and might I say I’m learning to enjoy the experience!"
Geraldine, you have a wonderful capacity to help clarify objectives and distil the essence of what it is that people do and offer. This combined with assisting people to speak authentically from the heart and soul instead of the mind, makes you a very effective and powerful coach! Thank you.
