Christine Mottram Public Speaking Lesson

Public Speaking Coaching

Voicing what matters when public speaking is a big deal, whether in an interview, a meeting of five or in front of a large audience. It’s completely human to feel charged or nervous energy around even the thought of speaking publicly. If we don’t know how to handle this charged energy, it can overwhelm us and take us into survival program states of Fight/Flight or Freeze— making it difficult to communicate. Perhaps you experience difficulties breathing, physical tension, difficulties seeing or hearing, or have trouble pacing your speech or getting your voice to carry or express how you feel about what you’re saying. Or perhaps you feel numb or disconnected and your voice comes across monotone and flat. Maybe you feel comfortable with your content but struggle to build a rapport with your audience . 

As a public speaking coach, I help you create some initial conditions for yourself that allow you to turn any “charge” around public speaking into what fuels you to speak. We explore presence and mindfulness work, body language, breathing and voice techniques, camera and microphone techniques for virtual communication, and how to handle notes and visual aids– all in the service of allowing your full self to come to the table .

Who is Public Speaking Coaching For?

Anyone who would like to connect more to themselves and their audiences as a public speaker and who uses their voice as an instrument to ‘voice what matters’. Public speaking coaching can be for formal presentations, lectures, making your voice heard in meetings, interviews, important conversations, virtual meetings and presentations, radio, broadcasting, podcasting and creating impactful social media. I have worked with business professionals, lawyers, doctors, activists, teachers and diplomats.

I offer virtual and in-person private sessions, group classes and workshops. Please be in touch if you’d like more information or to book a session.
