Strategy, Storytelling & Speaker Coaching from a TEDMED Speaker Coach

The Storytelling Process
Stage 3: SpeakerCoaching

SpeakerCoaching is the StageCraft of a speech - the paper-free delivery, the timing, the pauses, the body language. Distilling and delivering the key messages and identifying what to emphasise and what to leave out. The handling and identification of questions. Transforming speakers from good to great. This is intense 1-2-1 training preparing focused and motivated individuals for high-value/high-risk events.

This ranges from being a SpeakerCoach at TEDMED (the health and science arm of the TED family) to working 1-2-1 remotely or in person with people from organisations around the world.

These are often career changing events that could include TED, TEDMED, or TEDx speeches, Investment Pitches, AGM speeches, End of Year or Mid Year internal communications session, appearances in front of a Select Committee, a Senate Hearing, a UNGASS (United Nations General Assembly Special Session), Interviews, Partner Panels or a commencement speech at your alma mater.

I have been helping people tell their stories and present better on stage for 24 years and my underlying 10 step MessageCraft® process helps eliminate risk and mistakes.

...the early rumblings of your own power as a speaker. 

“I knew without question that I’d picked the right coach. He was doing just what I’d asked him to do… Peter’s seismic approach to speaker coaching can make you feel as if there’s earth moving under that once-stable place you were standing. You can view that as a danger, something outside your control, and run away from it. Or you can view it as the early rumblings of your own power as a speaker, and run toward it.”

Peter's coaching obviously worked...

“Peter was an OUTSTANDING and no-nonsense coach. He showed me how to sell my experience at an interview. The interview. For THAT job. Investing in Peter’s coaching obviously worked because I was successful and am absolutely over the moon with my new role. He also guided me through the process of negotiating my salary up which saw an increase of over 35%. I would highly recommend using Peter if you are seeking a new role.”

"I haven’t been spoken to with such refreshing honesty in 15 years. I probably haven’t learnt that much, that quickly in 15 years either."
