Business Person of the Year – again!

Business Person of the Year – again!

I’m absolutely delighted to have won Business Person of the Year for the second year running at the East of England Business Champions 2013 on 17th October, 2013.

The judges’ comments focused on the consistency of the business model – my “public speaking monkeys®” approach to training – and growth brought about by sustained innovation.

After launching Simply Amazing Training in St Albans, I expanded the presentation skills training to Bournemouth too in order to spend more time with my parents (and live by the sea!). Working between two locations has allowed the business to reach even more individuals and businesses who want to face their public speaking fears.

Simply Amazing Training offers presentation skills training for teams, and one-to-one coaching for business people who want to communicate effectively and easily, every time. As well as face-to-face training, Dee Clayton Ltd offers home study courses, based on my self-help book, Taming Your Public Speaking Monkeys – Building Confidence for Public Speaking and Presentations. I help nervous presenters to see their fear in a different light, so they can present effectively in team meetings, at conferences, or to clients; and also work with more seasoned presenters who need to up their game, for example, if they are delivering a keynote speech at an industry conference.

I’m thrilled to retain my title. It’s always nice to have your achievements recognised. But ultimately, I love what I do, which is helping others to learn to see their fears differently in order to achieve their goals.
