"The course really exceeded my expectations! Matt created a relaxed atmosphere from the off and this helped focus your mind on what you were there to achieve. The most valuable part of the day was how personal every step of the coaching felt - it was like having a 1-2-1 course with the support of lovely people around you. It was so valuable to drill down to your own personal anxieties about public speaking but also useful to hear about other people’s experiences. Genuinely felt by the end of the day that I had a toolkit for public speaking that was completely tailored to my ability and personality. Thank you, Matt!!"
Kate Ashley | Senior Digital Marketing Manager, Jellyfish Connect
""Matt was awesome from the minute we walked into the room, right up to when we left. He instantly put us at ease and tapped into the things that make us most nervous to help overcome them. The group transitioned into a team, all rooting for each other to be the best that they could be and supporting each other through the challenges. We all left feeling excited and empowered for the next big event. Today I presented to the whole company and I felt like people were truly listening - super result! Thanks Matt :)"
Louise Childs | Biddable Media Manager, Conversionworks
"This course is a welcome break from one-size-fits-all advice. Matt has a knack for setting the right environment and the right exercises for you to come up with your own personal solutions to your own personal situation."
Jez Nicholson | Founder of Tapirtech
"This course really took me out of my comfort zone - challenging me to reflect on what I considered an engaging speaker to be, and by encouraging me to reflect on what I need to do to embrace these elements into my own style. A truly inspirational day!"
Rachel Jordan | Lead Learning Designer at LEO
"My sessions with Matt left my mind blown as not only did he teach me the tactics to talk but more importantly how to change how I felt about talking. Within 6 weeks Matt had me up in front of roughly 20 people, giving my first ever talk that lasted 20 minutes – with no slides. Something I still struggle to believe."
Ollie Aplin | Founder of MindJournal
"I found knowing that other people had similar issues and that they didn't really show/matter the most valuable part - it was really enjoyable and has convinced me to apply to speak at more conferences."
Jay Gooby | Head of Technology at Innovate UK
"Matt managed to instantly put a diverse group of people at ease with each other which made the whole day easy going. I would recommend this day course to anyone who thinks they can't stand up and share some stories."
Anthony Prior | Founder of Bagelman
"I had 4 sessions of coaching with Matt a few weeks prior to my first public speaking event representing the company I work for Brandwatch. I was completely terrified at the prospect. Convinced I had nothing smart to say, that I would freeze on stage, stutter awkwardly or dribble inappropriately. I was basically self destructing before I'd even got there."
Katja Garood | Creative Director at Brandwatch
"Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and learnt so much I can put into practise, not just when presenting, but in meetings and everyday life. Everyone's voice was heard and the whole experience was positive, engaging and up-lifting. Matt facilitated the training brilliantly. Will be recommending highly!"
