I gained a first class degree in Performance and am a qualified teacher. I predominantly work in coporate training and adult education as a performance teacher and coach.
I am a member of the business training team at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, specialising in public speaking, presentation skills, confidence, personal impact and classroom presence.
I have worked as a communication skills coach and personal development coach for the NHS and many business and non-business individuals.
My training draws upon many disciplines from acting training, to communication theory and the Alexander Technique, working to increase your self awareness and awareness of others or helping find clarity on a particular issue or concern.
My experience and skills lie in creating and delivering innnovative training courses for business, education and third sector organisations in presentation skills, communication skills, team building, soft skills, voice and body and public speaking.
I run, with a partner, my business Opposite Leg Ltd which provides these courses - have a look at the link to our testimonials page below.
I also offer one to one coaching for all public speaking concerns from wedding speeches to work presentations.
I am an associate trainer and coach for RADA Enterprises, the business training and personal coaching department of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
