Client Testimonials

“I reached out to Mel because of a lack of confidence in my ability to take part in public speaking. I certainly know how to speak but Mel helped with story composition and how to use my voice in a way that will engage the audience without making the process unsafe for me. I learnt a lot.” Danielle Bridge .

“Mel gave me many interestingly different perspectives on presentation skills as well as solid practical advice. Alison Norwood.”

“Before the course I was absolutely terrified of public speaking and would avoid it at all costs. In only a few weeks, my confidence has grown and I now wouldn’t turn down an opportunity. I learnt so much and have completely shifted my mindset.” Vicky Westmore
