Core program


When It Matters is an intensive communication coaching program that will transform your relationship with your voice and body and allow you to show up, speak up and deliver, whatever the situation.

Practice being unprepared

This is coaching for people who want to be great speakers: excellent at spontaneous communication and at ease embodying the message they’re here to share.

Who’s it for?

  • Passionate change-makers with something to say, but who get flustered when the pressure is on
  • People with a purpose and a desire to communicate it with your whole self
  • Straight talkers alienated by business jargon and superficial chit-chat
  • Big thinkers with a message to share and a will to make it count, even under pressure.

If you’re ready to lose the anxiety, find your voice and make it heard, I invite you into a space were you can practice that bigger version of you; to take off the mask and de-cloak the brilliance that is you. Emerge unashamed, unafraid, and relish standing rooted in what really matters.

It’s not about presentation it’s about being present.

different about When It Matters?

Most presentation and communication skills programs work top down, teaching you techniques you can implement to improve your presentations.

How are you showing up?

When It Matters works in a deeper way, getting to the core of your response in high-stakes speaking moments and addressing these unhelpful states and the thoughts that create them. Rather than relying on tools and techniques, I’ll lead you to the heart of who you are and how you do things best.

Then together we’ll anchor this in your body and voice, so whenever you need to show up and speak up, you’re in touch with your message by being in touch with yourself.

There’s nothing to remember, and everything to gain, so you can get forget the anxiety and get on with saying what needs to be said.

How can you bring your whole self to the speaking moment?

How can your body enliven your message?

Which words would you marshal to your cause?

Show up. Step up. Speak up.
