Three quarters of us fear the one thing central to productive relationships, thriving businesses and progressive opportunities: real, meaningful communication.
From being part of that statistic and experiencing crippling anxiety, I am now an award-winning speaker coaching others to become more powerful communicators capable of speaking confidently, leading courageously and inspiring real change.
Hi, I’m Simon Day. Clients choose to work with me because I empower them to:
- speak with confidence to grow individuals and businesses;
- communicate more meaningfully and develop better relationships;
- master the craft of effective speaking and speechcraft;
- inspire others and lead more effectively.
Recently, I coached a senior director of a global company. She was preparing a challenging presentation to be delivered as part of a significant restructuring process. And she was terrified. After working with me, she overcame her anxieties and delivered the pitch with authority and clarity, preserving morale within the company at a turbulent time.
Another recent client received coaching to craft his pitch and deliver with impact. He went on to secure a four-year contract worth over £5 million.
My coaching, communications training and keynote speeches can help individuals, teams and organisations discover the power of more meaningful communication. I look forward to supporting you on your journey; get in touch and let’s get started.
