You, The Charismatic Speaker
My Signature Programme
A half-day programme, supported by 4 subsequent individual online sessions, which 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.
“I could have listened to you all night”
How would it feel to walk off stage after having given 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 soooo 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 during my 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 onstage and speak from your heart, but you just don’t think you have the talent for it (perhaps you are somewhat towards 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 kind of person I came 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 the huge impact on the world that you were put here to make.
It means that you’re avoiding speaking opportunities which 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 have created just for you.
Through this personal coaching…
We will establish what your personal speaking requirements are, what you need to address and formulate a plan of work which can include any of the following, where you will learn how to….
- Hook your audience from your very first words
- Write an engaging, on-target speech
- Build a 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
AND you will 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 have the skills to take your business to a whole new level
- Comfortable being in the spotlight (and free from your fear of visibility)
What my Clients say
“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 to do a forty-five minute talk at the ‘Best You’ Expo in London and, other than having done 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 my talk knocked into shape and bring it to life. I delivered my talk on the day to an audience of over 50 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 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 this coaching 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.
FOUR SKYPE SESSIONS
Depending on what we have identified as areas of improvement in your half-day intensive, we will use these 1-hour sessions to work on:
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, also providing 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.
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.
How to channel your nerves; how to set yourself up for a successful talk; how to build your belief in yourself as a speaker.
Email support throughout the six weeks – so that you have 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 to 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.)
You don’t need to stay standing in the wings, wishing you were that person up onstage holding the audience in the palm of their hand – wondering how they are able to do it and why you can’t.
You can be that person now. It is your time to shine.
