What people say...
Mel Kenny – IFA, Radcliffe & Newlands
As a reasonable speaker that could do with some training I attended the Ginger Training & Coaching public speaking course hoping to up my game a notch. Whilst public speaking is supposed to be the number one fear, Sarah’s endearing, energetic and fun style draws you in and motivates you to improve. She has an impressive sense of organisation about her, her workshops are innovative, charming and very useful. I have no hestitation in recommending Sarah and her ability to improve your presentation technques.
Steve Allott – Managing Director, ElectroMind Ltd
As an experienced speaker, I started working with Sarah to help me in three aspects of my business life: conference presentations, networking and training delivery. Her workshops and 1-2-1 sessions have vastly improved my ability to speak to large groups of very technical people, to be a smooth ‘Master of Ceremonies’ at conferences and to deliver short and sharp ‘elevator speeches’ at networking events.
Since Sarah was involved I have moved my performance up a league. Sarah has provided me with tools to help overcome just about any problem I may encounter with public speaking – skills which have ultimately led to more business. Sarah is unique because she really listens to her customers, gets to know what they want and delivers a really personal experience, which moves your speaking abilities forward at a pace you can cope with and enjoy.
