A mentor or trainer is perfect for various situations, including:
Board Directors: Mentoring allows senior executives to take stock, discuss any issues, ideas or challenges with someone with no ulterior motive!
Senior Management: Presentations skills coaching can provide consistent, non-judgemental support and encouragement to help managers rise to new challenges and improve their overall effectiveness. Have a look at a case study of one of our clients who recently went through this process.
High Flying Executives: For managers that are on track and being groomed for leadership positions, training can provide encouragement to overcome obstacles, think more strategically and develop long term goals.
Middle Management: The people more important than any other aspect of the business for keeping staff engaged and motivated. Mentoring can help them recognise their areas of weakness
Newly Promoted Staff: The people who are expected to run things smoothly despite having little or no experience. Coaching can provide a valuable safety net and sounding boarding to help them work with new responsibilities whilst at the same time building their confidence and hitting targets
Long Serving Executives: Coaching can unlock latent potential, re-energise and re-focus, whilst helping them recognise and reconsider their often natural resistance to change
Uneven Leadership kills: When an executive’s weakness is causing low morale or internal conflict, coaching may be the best way to help that person recognise their weak spots and figure out how to turn them around
Specific Performance Problems: For the leaders of divisions that are behind in planning or unlikely to meet business targets, coaching can highlight new outlooks and different prioritise, whilst helping those involved give themselves a reality check and regain focus

In the meantime, happy presenting!
Think about the speakers you admire, and you’ll notice that they share a common trait: they have all mastered how to use effective pauses. The humble pause is often overlooked, but it really shouldn’t be …
The presentation is your chance to shine. You are away from the constraints of just answering questions.
“What’s your X-Factor?”
Treat it as your opportunity to show others what makes you unique.
Recently we ran an event for the 40 members of the global sales team of a multi-national, working with them to ‘Tame their Public Speaking Monkeys’ and help them increase their confidence when presenting.
