Speak, lead and communicate with grace.

Grace represents a respectful, feminine energy that holds just the right amount of space.

It’s the ability to listen and speak with equal measure in a confident, collaborative manner.

My mission is to help female thought leaders share their expertise with authenticity and grace so that they gain the recognition and respect they deserve on local and global stages.

From the initial stages she has been incredibly professional, clear and helpful in tailoring the program to suit our requirements. Her content & techniques have been impactful. Her warm and gentle approach combined with her credibility makes her unique and engaging throughout the sessions.

I am Emma,

I have had a gloriously squiggly career, starting in pharmaceutical sales, then training as a Speech and Language Therapist. After a short and sweet affair with the NHS, I became Operations Director in a successful event business, before finding my true passion and training as Voice Coach at the prestigious Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Having worked in the public and private sectors, incorporate and in start-ups, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to help women, like you, raise your visibility and credibility at work. I do that through helping you find and use your authentic voice as well as helping you cultivate thoughtful leadership, so that you can earn respect for your expertise, gain recognition for all your hard work and be rewarded (with pay and promotion!) for your results.

When I am away from my desk you will find me at the beach with the kids and the dog, messing about in the sea, or swinging in my garden chair with my nose in a good book. I bake an incredible chocolate cake but am allergic to the stuff! I discovered I was dyslexic when I was 46 and it was such a relief!! The highest place in the world I have ever been is Machu Picchu in Peru.

Let's speak

Frequently Asked Questions:

How much time will I need to invest?

Find and free your voice is all audio - so you can binge it in a weekend or luxuriate in it over a month.

Influential Leadership is a three month programme. We meet every other week for 90 mins with videos, exercises and homework to do in between each session.

With TEDx we meet once a week for 90 mins for the first month - when we are focussed on producing our messy manuscript. For the following two moths we meet every other week for 90 mins as we begin to focus on delivery.

Some of the exercises you can complete within that time frame. Others you will need to take additional time to complete.

Some of the exercises benefit from daily repetition but it is up to you when and where you do this. Or, if you do it at all!

As with most training the more you put in the more you'll get out.

How will you support my learning?

Each module is made up of videos explaining theory, practice and exercises for you to access and complete in your own time frame.

At the end of each module you will prepare for your coaching session to review your learning, receive peer and coach feedback and set the scene for your next module. So on most courses you will get three sessions of coaching, of between 1-2 hours, in a group, with at least 10 mins one-to-one in each session.

Some of the lesson there are downloadable documents that will assist you in completing the exercises.

You will also have email access to a coach for the duration of your course should need clarification about any aspect of your learning.

You also have the option to purchase additional one-to-one coaching sessions if you feel that would benefit your learning.

Are you going to try and make me into someone I am not?

Definitely not! The whole purpose of this training and coaching is that we amplify the very best of your natural communication skills and give you new tools and strategies to extend what you can do into more areas of your work and life. Authenticity is key to real connection with your audience.

How do I choose the right level for me?

Why not book in for a complimentary Clarity Call on the coaching page to determine the best course for your needs.

Actors are just pretending why would you use theatre skills?

Actors are trained to have stage presence. Great actors can do very little and still capture your attention. Effective actors find the real truth of a situation and when they do it has the power to move us.

We take the training that actors receive in relation to physical and vocal presence and apply it to business scenarios.

As a speaker you want to authentically connect with and influence your audience, moving them towards your ideas, product or service; presence and truth with do just that.

Are you going to make me pretend to be a tree or melting ice-cube?

Absolutely not!

We use theatre theory and practice but we also blend that with business theory, organisational psychology and coaching practices.

We will move around and use our body, breath and voice perhaps in ways you haven't before, but always with the end goal in mind of creating engaging, impactful conversations, presentations and leadership.

You will also be able to do all the exercises in the privacy of your own home or meeting room.

Is there a test?

No. There are no tests and, in fact, I would encourage you to ditch the idea of right and wrong they aren't helpful concepts when it comes to working on your communication delivery. If we think we are getting things wrong the body and voice tense up which is the opposite of what we are aiming for.
