STRATEGIC CONSULTING


You may have a brilliant idea. You may have a great product or service. You might be an accomplished leader with an amazing team. But have you worked out what makes you truly different? What makes you unique? And how you can communicate that to everyone who needs to know?

I will help you work that out. I’ll then create and shape a narrative that will anchor your story in your purpose. It will clarify your strategy and articulate it in a way that will resonate across your organisation. And it will help you share the very best of you with the world outside.

MESSAGE & NARRATIVE DEVELOPMENT


The world is full of messages. It’s crowded. It’s noisy, complex. People are easily bored and can be cynical. You need to earn their attention and hold it. Getting your message to compete has never been more important, or more challenging. And your story deserves to be heard.

Understanding your audience – and what they want – is the first step. Then we’ll work out what you need to say to get the cut-through you desire. I’ll help you tell stories that are authentic, anchored in purpose and will resonate among all your audiences. Your message won’t just land. It will sing.

PERSONAL IMPACT & PRESENTATION COACHING


When you communicate, authenticity is everything. You need to be yourself. Because being yourself is the bedrock of trust. Without building trust, you’ll never achieve the impact you deserve. We’ll work out where you are coming from and where you want to take people. We’ll work out what you need to say and how you need to say it.

I’ll help you understand your natural strengths, so you can make more of them. Together, we’ll address the things that aren’t doing you any favours. You’ll still be you. But you will be a better version of you, telling your story with authenticity, authority and real impact.
