We're in the Business of Impact

We show you how to draw on your own personality to connect profoundly and persuasively with clients and colleagues.

The hallmark of people with great personal presence is that they are themselves. We help you find your most effective natural style, and rediscover your innate ability to be a relaxed, persuasive communicator.


“We used to have a real
problem with impact,
we clearly don't any more.”


“I have been in this business
for 23 years, but the training
re-enforces my belief we
still can learn things.”


“We genuinely felt well
prepared, passionate and
ready to win; but crucially
not over coached or


“The client said our pitch was
outstanding and used terms like
‘enthusiastic, committed,
hunger, appetite’”

How We Work

We create an informal, professional environment, at your offices or ours, where you can try things out, take a few risks, and make a few discoveries about natural abilities you’d forgotten you had.

Working with individuals or with small groups, we start by looking at what you want to get out of the coaching. That business relevance becomes the ‘north star’ of our work, and we return to it continually, pinning down exactly how you will use the training in daily life.

We use techniques from drama, literature, neuroscience and business to give you a toolkit to enhance personal presence. On the spot feedback throughout the coaching lets you gauge how you’re doing.
