Public Speaking Training 

Power Speech – Power Presence

Maximising the power and colour of your authentic voice and presence so you can speak effortlessly and confidently is at the core of every session.

Leadership Skills Training 

The Second Circle™ Leader – Embodied Transformation

Hold your ground with power, grace and availability, particularly in testing circumstances.

Speak with clarity and focused fluency so that your words have impact and prevail. Transform your nervousness into focused, effective energy – especially when everything seems to be going wrong. Incorporate confident, calm body language to bolster your impact and message.

Communications Training

Connecting with others begins with by stepping into your true, graceful, presence. Confidently contributing and listening in the present moment allows for spontaneity and ease. Feeling your power and vulnerability allows you to create an impactful, two-way emotional connection every time you communicate whether 1 on 1 or with thousands.

Presentation Skills

Move, inspire and make your presentation memorable. Discover the differences between how you write and speak to enhance the flow and natural delivery of your written words. Learn how to use technology (mics, slides, videos) to build your presentation and not detract from it.

• Energize your speaking to develop a passionate and no waffle style of delivery.
• Use the power of story to influence and inspire
• Build lean and compelling presentations
• Understand your audiences key needs

Media Training and On Camera Training

There’s more to on-camera interviews than how you look. Learn the necessary skills for being a camera-ready spokesperson or press officer. If radio and webcasts are your focus, making your vocal delivery compelling is paramount when all you have is your voice and a mic.

Complete Storytelling in Business Training: conception to delivery.

In this bespoke programme of training and coaching you develop your ability to:

Uncover the compelling and relatable story of you or your company.

Structure the story into a clear, dynamic and memorable presentation or pitch.

Present it with the confidence and clarity to move and inspire any audience.

Even if you believe you are not a natural storyteller, even if you think that the data or information driven nature of your business does not lend itself to storytelling, we distill the humanity driven facts to uncover the compelling underlying narrative of you or your company’s people, products or services and their impact on the world.

Uncover the story

We target the specific audience you wish to influence. We research and focus what really matters to them so that they your audience can see themselves in the stories you choose to tell.

We put flesh on the driest of data to get to the “so what” as far as your audience is concerned.

We mine the given information to mine the veins of storytelling gold that are always buried in any given piece of information.

We open that part of the creative and empathic part of our brains. This is where story is hardwired into us all as a way of receiving and remembering new information.

Structure the story

We learn to develop the structures of classical thought in our narrative for clarity and memorability.

We explore the archetypal story structures that underpin all stories to establish which story we are telling.

We build the chapters infusing dynamics of rhythm, tempo and tone to build a varied and engaging story arc for our audience.

We prime our story with narrative tools and hooks to create constant curiosity, generate emotion and engage our listeners from beginning to end. 

Present the story

We develop embodied presence to enable ourselves to harness the adrenaline of delivery into grounded and focused physical, vocal and mental energy to engage our audience and overcome any nervousness.

We learn to make a real two-way emotional connection with our audience.

We open and form our body language to be congruent with our words.

We build the skill to speak without the use of slides without hiding behind the podium.

ENQUIRE ABOUT TRAINING
“Having set up my own practice, i felt being capable of speaking in public with confidence was an important attribute for me to develop.
I set about finding a suitable teacher to gain the required skill. Mark Downey was recommended to me by another speech coach. We had several sessions which were truly enlightening. I found them challenging and rewarding. I hadn’t thought I’d needed so much work, so many unintentional bad habits to overcome. Mark also made me focus on my intention, in any speech or delivery of information, think about the core focus of the message you’re trying to get across; not to focus so much on the actual words but the message you want to portray. For me this was very important, especially if you have prepared something to deliver, it’s very easy to get caught up in the content but it’s the delivery and the feeling of the information you give that is important. Mark gave me a skill set which can work in any communication situation. I really think every one should engage in some public speaking coaching, whether you are actually going to make speeches or not. It’s empowering to know you are able to speak in public if ever put on the spot. In business or socially, it’s a skill everyone needs.”
“Let me start by saying that despite frequently being taken out with my comfort zone during the coaching sessions I thoroughly enjoyed them and indeed, working with Mark in general. There is no doubt that the very basic changes Mark helped me self-identify regarding posture, breathing, range and pitch of the voice as well as an emphasis on clearer articulation have supported me become a more effective, thoughtful, impactful and energetic communicator. I have found this not only benefit my public speaking when engaged with large audiences but also in day to day interactions with my team and my peers. I find it enormously satisfying to rarely be asked to repeat myself which before the coaching was an all too frequent request.”
