I can tell you that your own presentation for Using your voice and physical presence to make an impact in meetings. scored 100% as excellent for both content and delivery! Delegates also commented that they felt they would have benefitted from a longer session, which is praise indeed as they were obviously engrossed in the subject.

I thought Susan “got it” and went with the flow of how everyone was feeling about how they present or simply to increase assertiveness and confidence in everyone”
Susan’s workshops and lunchtime activities proved very popular with our members and received excellent feedback. She combines confidence building techniques, vocal coaching, team-building and self-expression effortlessly into a learning and sharing experience for the participants. Her warm personality enables and encourages even the shyest of people to participate, whilst her polished professionalism directs and manages the more confident amongst the groups: everybody takes part and everybody comes away feeling not only that they have learned something about themselves, and achieved something, but also energized. In terms of building group rapport and mutual/communal effort towards a ‘team goal’ I have rarely seen anything so effective.
I would not hesitate to engage Susan’s services again at our future events and highly recommend her.
I interviewed Susan for The Confident Mother online conference. Susan was a fabulous speaker. Susan was able to demonstrate how we can do very small easy tweaks to the way we stand and the way talk to project more confidence through our voice and our body language. Not only did we all have great fun during the interview, the audience learned so much, and we just loved her fun way of presenting. I would love to invite Susan back to other events in the future. Thank you Susan – I still sing “That’s Neat, That’s Neat, I really love my Diva Feet” every time I think of you!
I think the combination of my executive coaching and voice coaching led to me feeling the benefit of the voice coaching in a very short space of time. I was clear at the start what the issues were for me and where I most lacked confidence. Susan is very helpful at getting to the nitty gritty of what the problem really is in a non-threatening way. For example, I was convinced that my strong accent was getting in the way of me making points clearly at meetings
From my very first session I was given practical exercises, hints and tips to improve my speaking. As ever, sometimes what you need to do seems very obvious, but yet until you are told it, it’s not in your conscious.
During my course the areas we covered included engagement, posture, body language, content, dealing with nerves, performance, finding my niche… and many many more.
At the beginning of the work I scored myself on my proficiencies in the areas I wanted to cover. I scored it again at the end of the course and the improvement was incredible.
If you are looking to improve your speaking, then please talk to Susan. She has significant experience in this area and shares very openly.
I first met Susan at the Meeting Show in 2015 after attending one of her sessions. I found Susan engaging and insightful from the very start of her session and was really keen to find out more about her and how the Executive Voice service could help me.
As a manager of a large team in a corporate company I was keen to acquire the right tools to deal with difficult conversations and situations as well as to increase my confidence and assertiveness day-to-day, so I signed up for five one-to-one sessions with Susan.
Susan has a lovely warm persona which makes you feel at ease and comfortable instantly, and gives you confidence to let your guard down and be yourself. This helps you make the absolute most of each session. The sessions are well structured and planned out as well as being varied. It was apparent from the start of my first session that Susan is very knowledgeable in her field and after an initial first conversation could quickly pin-point my focus areas, while she was also very quick to pick up and understand my role in the industry which I work, and this gave each session more substance.
I have noticed a huge difference in myself – Susan has taught me so many tips and tricks to meet my objectives and more. I feel so much more confident in dealing with the daily demands of my job, am much more aware of my posture, voice, body language and how I come across in general. I really can’t recommend working with Susan enough!
“I bought Susan in to run a team vocal session as part of a team building day I was running for Sadlers Wells development team. Susan run ran a fun group piece of work building on the work we had done in the morning. She was able to join the group and lead them through developing their own jingle even though she had not been privy to their work in the morning. I look forward to running similar workshops with Susan. In summary Susan is a conscientious professional person who knows her subject well. She is very personable and can adapt to situations. I am happy to speak to you if you would like any further information”.
I met Susan at a networking event and her personality and expertise was immediately clear. Following our chance encounter we had a 1:1 session in which she empowered my voice and has given me lots of tips and advice on how to present myself in future. Her ‘freeing the voice’ and ‘charisma’ techniques is truly an inspiration.
I also attended a one-day workshop where she encouraged everybody to participate in the exercises and you noticed the positive changes immediately. Everybody’s comments were empowering and with the ‘small’ tips Susan gives, you can see “big” changes.
I cannot recommend Susan more highly!
Susan delivered an engaging lunchtime training session for our Focussed Women Network [RBS] on communicating with confidence. Her session was both practical and uplifting and very well received by our members. I would happily recommend Susan for her communications training,.
We were delighted to welcome Susan to our clic+ club event as a guest speaker in July 2016. The subject of the clic+ lecture was ‘event planning’ and Susan delivered a 30 minute thought provoking talk encouraging our event organiser attendees to work and communicate with their suppliers at all times through the event planning process. It does seem common sense but Susan took the time to talk about the smallest details (giving some first hand examples) that can get missed that have a huge impact on the success of an event. We wish to thank Susan for her valuable insight
My experience of working with Susan has been fantastic. I had a series of individual vocal coaching sessions with her and she really took the time to get to know me and to understand what I wanted to achieve.
The exercises were practical and insightful (as well as fun and boundary pushing!) and helped me holistically improve the way I communicate. Progress was measured and celebrated throughout.
In a relatively short space of time, with Susan’s support, I have made some big changes and it feels life changing. Susan is truly an expert in her field and is amazing to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
