Public Speaking For Women
Confidence. Authenticity. Credibility.
When it’s your turn to speak, does your voice tremble, your mind go blank or an inner voice whispers: “You have nothing of value to offer”?
Our clients are smart, creative, thoughtful women often described as “quiet achievers”. They are professional self starters who need to influence yet struggle or avoid public speaking. To move forward, their voice needs to be heard.
Public Speaking Coach Geraldine Barkworth has helped hundreds of people transform speaking fear and avoidance into cool, calm and connected confidence in front of groups. She coaches 1:1 by phone and skype, facilitates workshops , retreats and offers online self-help courses.
I have to eat humble pie and say I didn't expect to learn much at your Sexy Communicator 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!"
