Philippa Hammond

Whether you need to speak for leadership, training and business, performance and social occasions, education, employability or as a great new life skill, I can help.

The ancient Greeks knew a thing or two about public speaking. They recognised that an audience needs to like, trust and understand you before they’ll start listening to you.

And they knew about ‘glossophobia, or ‘tongue terror’ – the fear of public speaking.

Me too. I’m standing on stage about three quarters of the way through the first ever performance of my first solo show. And then something terrifying happens. A voice in my head starts saying ‘You can’t do this. You don’t know your lines. They don’t like you.’ I freeze, my mind goes blank – and I walk off stage.

That could have been it for me as an actor. But the next night I went on – and I did it. And the audience came back. And the next year we took the show to Edinburgh, to four star reviews.

I beat the fear – and so can you.

Now I combine my pro actor / voice artist skills with my corporate learning and development consultancy experience in my Confident Public Speaking training.

I’ll share the secrets actors, speakers and trainers have used for centuries to deal with nerves and develop confidence, feel, look and sound better, and craft and deliver a great message about you and your business to any audience.

Simple, straightforward – anyone can learn, with Speaking Well In Public.

What they’re saying

Feel much better about presenting … Fantastic … I can’t wait to put it into practice … Exceeded all expectations … A great day with Philippa @TalkingSpeaking learning something different!’

[Received later:] ‘ My day with you continues to pay off. On Friday I organised a Dispute Resolution Seminar for about 60 lawyers. We had speakers from all over plus some very eminent High Court Judges. I did not even get nervous this time, after all after the National Conference with over 500 delegates, why would I?!?!’

Sharon Kay, Partner Kay & Pascoe LLP @SharonLKay

‘…. I highly recommend Philippa to anyone who would like to speak confidently and well in public.”

Claire Griffin, Claire Griffin Talent Ltd

” … thank you for the help with my recent public speaking foray … I don’t think the speech could have gone better … I had some lovely comments afterwards from people I really respect, who asked how I was so calm”

Joanne Edwards, chair of Resolution
[the national family lawyers association]

A presentation skills masterclass

Professional, experienced speakers preparing to deliver:

High-stakes presentations and keynote speeches

Pitches for business, funding, contracts and clients

Yes, great content is vital – you may have prepared a slick PowerPoint, beautiful brochures and all your facts and figures neatly presented – but have you considered your delivery style?

People buy from people – not from PowerPoints or pretty pictures.

The way you present your material, how you look and how you sound, will affect and influence their response to your message.

Your masterclass includes:

A dress rehearsal, a practical dry run of your prepared presentation, pitch or workshop material to an independent impartial consultant

Honest, respectful, constructive feedback on how your material and your team will look and sound to your prospective client

The chance to identify any snags while there’s still time to fine tune, polish and enhance your material and professional, credible delivery style.

If it’s worth presenting – it’s worth polishing first.
