CONFIDENT PUBLIC SPEAKING
Be interesting, authentic, individual, confident...
... And remembered!
Confidence in Public Speaking is much easier to achieve once you have better access to your own authenticity - who you really are - and start being yourself.
It's the most overlooked aspect of presentation, yet the most effective way to make noticeable and lasting improvements, and your greatest tool.
Whatever your current level of skill, experience, training or qualifications, engaging your authentic self is the essential component which will make all the difference.
You may already have presentation skills and experience at speaking in public which you want to improve - it's just a matter of feeling in control, sorting out those last couple of issues and being able to prepare and deliver what you know you're capable of - every time.
If you're new to public speaking, you're in for a pleasant surprise! It doesn't need
to be as daunting as you expected. An authentic approach will enable you to deliver to your strengths once you grasp the simple truth that 'you are enough'.
If you want to focus on general skills training, preparation or delivery, tailored personal coaching will give you transferable skills and exceptional results.
A stronger and more confident speaking voice, and skilful presentation, will help you engage your audiences, and combined with complementary body language,
clear thinking and all-inclusive planning, you will feel confident in your abilities.
The skills you develop will stay with you for a lifetime.
If you would like to prepare for a specific project or speech, your skills development will be dependent on your lead time. If your deadline is looming, you'll need a fast-track approach to prioritize and optimize what you can achieve in a few sessions. Setting ambitious yet realistic objectives can be more fun than you might think!
If you're ready for a more in-depth approach, working on accessing your authenticity will transform your speaking and presenting and take it to a new level.
The results are always positively life-changing and everyone will notice the difference. It's a relaxed, safe and completely confidential approach which involves talking, setting new goals and trying everything out in rehearsal, as well as in practice in your own public speaking and presenting situations.

Many people have a fear of public speaking or feel nervous in front of an audience. Sometimes it's a particular venue, layout, type of audience or the size of the audience which makes them freeze, shake, their voice wobble, lose their place
or go to pieces, when normally they're fine.
But fear is only something your mind invents about the future - it's not 'fact' because it hasn't actually happened yet! - So there's still time to turn it around.
If you find yourself recalling a particular speech or presentation you felt was
a disaster, it's time to finally set it aside and move on!
A few presentation coaching sessions can make all the difference and help you
get your confidence back.
A Presentation Coach can help you identify the triggers which cause you to feel worried, insecure or uncomfortable, and overcome any obstacles to success
so your confidence is restored, and you feel calm and relaxed when you present.
People tend to choose an experienced professional Voice Coach when they want to improve their ability to hold an audience's interest, speak more confidently
and articulately, or to overcome their anxiety or fear of public speaking.
If you want to say what you mean and connect with your listeners, remember
your words and speak naturally, authentically and confidently, why not call Karin

Karin Karian, B. Ed, Dip Com, NLP
Whether it's a speech, public reading, lecture, presentation, demonstration,
board meeting, briefing, sales pitch, press interview...
...classroom teaching, an informal talk, briefing, performance, exam, competition,
You tube video, voice-over, audio-visual project or general telephone manner...
...or simply a general desire to improve your voice and your overall skill
and confidence levels when you speak...
Karin can help you use your voice safely and expressively, create great presentations, incorporate natural and effective body language, and even learn
to accurately predict the response you're likely to get.
You can also learn to handle the unexpected, from hecklers to equipment breakdown, and use your own personality and style to put everyone at ease.
Sometimes just changing one thing can dramatically affect the response of your listeners, and with practice you can learn to build winning rapport with everyone.
By being more authentic, honest and natural you can easily turn a good speech into an extraordinary and memorable presentation event.
Even a one-off session will make a difference to your presentation skills
This is achieved by a combination of physical techniques, mental concepts and emotional intelligence and awareness.
As your confidence grows, so, too, will your audience's interest, and your words will be remembered, valued and referred to long after the event.

It's worth a quick call with Karin if you're undecided which coach to book - It's important to find the right coach for you, so talking to one or two without obligation makes sense.
In the end you will probably go with your gut, so the most important thing you'll want to find out in advance is whether you have rapport and a sense of respect and trust with each other.
Karin is always happy to have a chat about what you need - it's reassuring to hear a friendly voice who understands exactly where you're coming from and can offer some instant suggestions.
She will help you build a great reputation for giving exceptional, engaging presentations and to become a confident authentic speaker who will leave your audiences loving you and wanting more - every time.

“She is definitely the best. She works out what you want, she shows you different ways to
get it, she hands you the tools and watches over you while you work out the best way for you.
I guess it probably depends on your issues and how sceptical you are, but the solutions are
so simple and it makes sense.
"It works for everyone – I’ve sent several people her way and they’d all agree. You can’t argue when you get results and you watch the reactions and you realise you had the ability to do whatever you want all along but you just didn’t quite know how to get at it.”
"Thanks for all your help. The speech went down a storm." Matt
"Karin Karian is one of the top voice coaches in the UK. I would recommend her to anyone - she's the best professional coach we've worked with and her training and advice gets extraordinary results right across the board." H G, Business Owner
