Public Speaking For Women

Transform Your Speaking Fear Into Speaking Fabulous!

Hello, I’m Geraldine Barkworth, a public speaking coach. I specialise in showing professional women how to get over speaking fears and get on with making a difference in their world, every time they speak.

Work With Me If…

You are so nervous about speaking you’d rather go to the dentist… or you need help with crafting a meaningful message that makes your heart sing…  or if you are ready to reach a big audience, if only you knew how.

Why Public Speaking Matters

  1. We live in a knowledge economy. Ideas, people and words are power.
  2. Communication is a core skill. It’s essential to speak well everywhere.
  3. Information is cluttered. Cut through the blah with a clear voice.
  4. The internet connects us globally. Your words go beyond you.
  5. Your voice matters. Make a difference, one conversation at a time.

  • 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..."

  • 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!

  • 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!"

  • 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!"
