Personal Message
I am a professional presenter and voice over artist and the lessons I teach my students I use myself to deliver a clear, articulate, confident and effective performance.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I work as an elocution, accent reduction and public speaking coach.
I can reduce an accent or work with you to chance an accent completely. I will work with you to improve your diction, articulation and build your confidence.
I also help develop confidence in public speaking. The thought of speaking in public can be terrifying, but for most of us it’s an important part of our job, whether it’s speaking at a conference, teaching in front of a class or just addressing your team in a meeting. Nerves and anxiety about how we speak and how we think we come across to others prevents us from expressing ourselves well.

I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Acting from Birmingham School of Acting
What kind of experience do you have?
I am a professional presenter and voice over artist with many years’ experience in public speaking and presenting. I have many years experience presenting in front of a camera, addressing large and small groups of people at live events and using my voice to tell a story and engage an audience.

I charge £60 for an hours session.
