Video confidence case study

How I helped a client find his video confidence

He’d had a major shift from a public service role to the health and beauty world, including membership organizations, and how needed to boost and polish his public speaking in person, on camera and online.

After much research he found me – and as he wanted to support a local provider, requested a clarity call.

He explained that although he was very confident in conversation and in business situations, on camera was a different matter.

He felt he just didn’t do justice to himself, coming across in an unnatural and disengaging way. And he wanted to do something about that, to be ready to show up on video to speak to his industry.

Nerves, uncertainty, lack of practice and unhappiness with results so far were the main issues.

Together we planned a personal development programme of five online 1-1 sessions, covering

Nerves and confidence building

Personal impact – looking and sounding good on screen

Planning and preparing a video shoot

A Learning to Love Linkedin session

Practical video making assignment

Now video is a major part of his personal and professional presentation skills, helping him to speak to his industry with clarity, confidence and credibility.

Confident Public Speaking case study

How I helped a customer build her confident public speaking skills for business

She’d been promoted into her dream leadership role. She’d been great in her previous role with the company – and the assumption was she’d step up naturally into her new persona, delivering presentations and briefings, chairing meetings, giving inspirational addresses … all with no training or support round developing these new skills.

Thing was … she had a secret. She was petrified of public speaking. Avoiding it, shying away from challenges and opportunities, so she’d never given herself the chance to develop the skillset.

And now, the spotlight was approaching fast and there was no escape – she was going to have to step up into it.

And that’s when she found me 😁. I’m Philippa, an actor and learning and development consultant specialising in training confident public speaking skills for leadership, training and business. I’ve supported so many business people as they’ve learned how to feel, project and inspire confidence and leave a great message about their business.

Together we worked on nerves and confidence, personal brand and personal impact, plus a tried and tested method of planning and preparing any presentation for any audience. Then top tips actors and public speakers have used for centuries to look and sound better when standing up to speak. It was such a pleasure to work with her.
