Find answers to the most common questions on becoming a public speaker

If I’m not sure what my message is in my story, can Jennifer help me find it?

Yes. I listen to your story and I then ask many questions to help me dig deeper and find, in the smaller details, the profound messages for your audience. I never leave a stone unturned. The message is always hidden in the details of your story.

 

How long is a coaching session?

Approximately, 2 hours. Whether it is face to face or Skype/Zoom. A coaching session may be split into two segments. The first half is spent working on mining through your story. Once you have rewritten your story, we work on your delivery and share top public speaking tips and tricks. However, in saying this, it is always up to you to choose what you wish to get from your sessions to achieve the outcome you seek.

 

How does coaching someone overseas/interstate work?

It works just as effectively through Zoom, Skype or Go Meeting. Currently I am working with clients in over 7 countries around the world. The results are just as positive.

 

What do I need to prepare before I have a coaching session with Jennifer?

If it is possible, email me a copy of your presentation, slides or video for me to access before I book in our session. I will then prepare a list of questions for you.

 

Does Jennifer write my speech?

Can Jennifer work with my fear of speaking in public?

Yes. I have a proven method called SPEAKthrough ™, that smashes the wall of fear in speaking. I will provide you with easy to implement public speaking tips and ticks to help over come your fears.

We all at some point in our life have experienced fear or anxiety around speaking. Whether it’s professionally or personally related, how would you feel knowing you had a tool kit to dissolve your fears and anxieties? How would you feel being able to speak without the fear and anxieties that you currently experience? For the first time in Australia I am presenting an effective two day workshop around my new global venture.

In conjunction with my colleague Ranes Sangha, BSc Psychology, MSc Psychology, MA Social Work. We have created a program that breaks through the fear of speaking.

When an attendee, Lana said, “I thought it was just about the fear of speaking. I kept thinking about it and I could see that the SPEAKthrough ™strategy for life related to any type of fear, I have. Thank you so much for the workshop; it has given me the best gift for life”.

Ranes and I knew we were onto to a winner for you. SPEAKthrough ™guides you through a process and strategy to smash through the wall of fear. Instead of doing whatever it takes to avoid fear, we provide you with a strategy and show you how to make fear your friend. The result life changing. Imagine that!
