Work With Me…

“I could have listened to you all night

How would it feel to walk off stage after giving a talk and have someone say that to you?

Followed by other people saying things like…

“You are so inspiring”

“Your message really touched me”

“I sooo need your help”

“You made that look so easy”

Can you imagine being that person? Can you feel the exhilaration, the pride, the satisfaction?

Even if you can’t feel that right now, I know you really want to. It’s why you’re here, reading this.

I’ve met many women like you over my eight years on the speaking circuit.

Women who are absolutely brilliant at business, 100% believe in what they’re doing, but when it comes to the thought of standing up, speaking and having all eyes on them – they want to run and hide in the nearest dark cupboard that locks, from the inside.

You would love to confidently walk on stage and speak from your heart, but you just don’t think you’ve got the talent for it (perhaps you are somewhat to the introverted end of the spectrum).

Even if you did, you’re not sure you have anything worthwhile to say (or that people would actually want to listen).

And, the few times you’ve tried this speaking thing you weren’t exactly a success (dry mouth, red face, sweaty armpits, pounding heart and worse, forgetting your words  – bring back any bad memories?)

If that is you then you are in exactly the right place, because you are just the person I got into this business to help.

Because here’s the thing…

Your fear of public speaking is holding you back.

It’s standing in the way of you making that huge impact on the world that you were put here to make.

It means you’re avoiding speaking opportunities that could spread your message to people who really need to hear it (and no one is best served by that – least of all you!).

And, your fear is also limiting the amount of abundance that flows your way – so we’re talking clients, income, and fulfilment.

But, and I need you to hear this, no matter how afraid you are right now, we can transform your nerves and anxiety into fuel for you to become the most amazing speaker you can imagine.

Just like that one at the top of this page.

I’ll let you in on a little secret…

No one begins as a naturally talented speaker – they learn how to become one.

So if you have had enough of playing second fiddle to your nerves and anxieties around visibility and being in the spotlight, and are ready to call in those big business dreams, then this is something I created just for you.


‘You –  The Brilliant Charismatic Speaker’

My signature programme ‘YOU – The Brilliant Charismatic Speaker’ is a transformational experience that will take you from knock-kneed, fearful and frustrated to a woman whose presence on stage is magnetic, inspiring and galvanising.

When we’re through you will know how to:

  • Hook your audience from your very first words
  • Write an engaging, on-target speech
  • Build presence and connection with your audience
  • Use gestures, body language and eye contact to best effect
  • Use your voice and enhance its natural inflections
  • Use any notes you need unobtrusively
  • Channel your nerves and use them for greater impact

Which will ensure you feel:
Confident that when you walk out on that stage, the audience is going to be wowed!
Excited to receive speaking opportunities and bold enough to ask for them!
Proud of your ability to face this fear – and overcome it!
Relief, mixed with joy, that you’ve got the skills to take your business to a whole new level
Comfortable being in the spotlight (and free from your fear of visibility)

I know right now you fear being judged, of it all going wrong, and you just don’t want to put yourself in that vulnerable position. I get it.
But our work together will release those fears, arm you with tools, techniques and strategies to handle all those awkward moments, so that you can feel safe to step on stage, be who you really are, and flower in the spotlight.

Dolina Hendry“Aly was highly recommended to me by two people on two separate occasions. I didn’t know who Aly was and I was sceptical she could help me. I had booked myself out to do a forty five minute talk at the ‘Best You’ Expo in London and other than do a short two minute network pitch I had no experience of public speaking at all.

You could say I felt a lot more than just nervous. Aly worked with me over a number of sessions to free me of my anxiety, help me to get the my talk knocked into shape and bring it to life. I delivered my talk on the day to an audience of over fifty people. This was a huge step for me.

Before I started I felt nervous, but with Aly’s support I felt strong and powerful, I knew this was something I had to do. To put into words the gift Aly gave me – she taught me how to channel the nerves and stand in my power, and to use the space on stage effectively I didn’t stand behind the lectern and half way through I abandoned my notes and found myself speaking freely. I felt confident and I delivered my speech with the all the passion that I have for the subject.

I totally forgot about the nerves and loved being in front of an audience, there was a camera in my face the whole time as my talk was filmed, but even that didn’t phase me. I can hardly wait to get back out there.”

How the programme is structured:


First, we meet over Skype or at an agreed location for a half-day intensive, where we do a deep-dive into your business, you, your speaking needs and our priority areas of focus over the next six weeks.


Depending on what we identified as areas of improvement in your half-day intensive, we will use these 1-hour sessions to work on:

Voice exercises: using all my performance knowledge of the mechanics of the voice, I will help you to strengthen the tone, depth and clarity of your voice. I will also provide you with MP3 or video recordings so that you can practice in-between our sessions.

Your speaking style: gestures, eye contact and body language are all non-verbal ways for us to engage and continue communicating with our audience, so we will look at your style, how you can take up more space on stage and connect more deeply with your audience.

Speech writing: getting your message across in a clear, structured format; using your own story to inspire your audience; and naturally sharing an offer from the stage, are all things we will cover if you need them.

Your mindset: how to channel your nerves; how to set yourself up for a successful talk; how to build your belief in yourself as a speaker.

Bonus Support

Email support throughout the six weeks – so that you’ve got someone in your corner for those last-minute speech questions or pre-talk jitters.

Review and feedback on three videos you may choose to supply to me as you progress with your speaking – so you can be sure you are progressing quickly and easily.

In-person observation of a talk: if you are speaking at an event during our time working together, I will come and observe you in action, and give you written feedback that will help you improve your presence and performance even more. (And if you’re not there yet, I can guide you on how to go about getting speaking gigs.)

(NB. I am willing to travel up to one-hour from my home in Kent. If you wish me to travel further afield then we can negotiate an additional fee to cover my time and travel costs.)

You don’t need to stay standing in the wings and wish you were that person up on stage holding the audience in the palm of their hand – and wondering how they do it and why you can’t.

You can be that person now. It is your time to shine.

Your investment to become a woman who wows audiences, sells from the stage and has a whole lot of fun while she is at it?

Alison Nixon Testimonial“Working with Aly has been transformational. I have been avoiding speaking in public for a long time. I first came to Aly engrossed with Fear and anxiety about my first talk to a group. She kindly reassured me that it was a fantastic opportunity and that I would be 100% ready and excited for the talk once I completed preparation needed it for.

She taught me how to write and deliver my first talk. She walked me through the entire process and taught me the skills I needed to succeed. Her individualized approach has helped me find my voice and I was able to get over my fear and I am proud to say that I did my first talk.

Aly’s approach is like no other. She is by your side the entire journey and she really cares about your success. She is motivating, encouraging, inspiring and believes we should be proud to share our message to the world. I believe working with Aly is vital in order to get past your fears of speaking and to help achieve your goals. Thank-you, Aly”

Be the very best you can be on stage

Still curious about the process or my background? Then take a look at the FAQs below. If you still want to know more, feel free to email me at


I have no experience in public speaking, do I need to get some experience to benefit from working with you?

No, we start where you are and work with what you have. A blank canvas is good and, believe it or not, you will already naturally possess some of the skills you need to speak in public. It is about accentuating the positive and eliminating the negative.

I have public speaking experience but I have fallen into a rut and some bad habits can you help me?

Absolutely! Inspiration, enthusiasm and creativity are all we need and a willingness to improve upon what you already have.

How do I know if your style of coaching is going to suit me?

We won’t until we talk, which is why I offer an initial Discovery Session first so that we can explore your needs, what you are looking for, and whether we think we are a “good fit”. There is no pressure for you to work with me, I want us both to enjoy the process!

Can you guarantee to transform me and my speaking ability within six weeks?

No matter how bad you think you are right now, the reality will not be anywhere near as bad as you think. With my help and encouragement transformation can take place. I can’t guarantee results as the outcome depends on how willing you are to make changes. But mindset is something that we will work on too so that you can embrace this new experience.

Should I just join a Speakers Club or Toastmasters to improve my speaking?

Speakers Clubs are amazing places – I have been a member of one for a long time. But being a member of one is a slower process of learning. Working with me is a six-week, hands-on, intensive experience that will get you up on stage feeling confident fast. So it really depends on how quickly you want to start becoming energetically irresistible to your future clients.

What makes you different from other public speaking coaches?

I work on multiple levels to ensure you become magnetic. I help you understand the value of speaking; how to use your own story to sell and inspire. I help your clear unconscious blocks to confident delivery and help you discover the natural blueprint of your voice and how to use it to best effect. Also, I help you to access your unique ability to connect and build rapport naturally. So my service is bespoke, and I help you become a powerful speaker by harnessing your own unique strengths and talents.

Is it worth the investment?

Being able to address a large audience is priceless. There is no faster way to spread your message and reach more clients, which leads to more income faster, and, ultimately, more fulfilment.

Can I pay by instalments?

Yes, let’s talk.

I am OK with speaking in public, I dont suffer with nerves, but I need help with body language and gestures. Can you help?

There is always room for improvement as I am sure you appreciate and sometimes changing the way we do something within our speaking can make the biggest difference. Let’s have a chat and see how I can help you.

I need help with writing my speech can you help with this?

Absolutely! I have a package just for you: Getting Your Message Across

How far do you travel to work with a client?

I am willing to travel up to one hour from my home in Kent. If you wish me to travel further afield then we can negotiate an additional fee to cover my time and travel costs.
