Feedback is a gift. Most audiences are very polite in the presence of a speaker, and applaud at the end of the talk, and say “it was great”, but the yardstick is what they actually say AFTER the event, when they leave the venue.
Our Head of Speaker coaching, Mary Tillson, when logistically viable, can come and observe you deliver a live talk, and will give you invaluable feedback around your impact, content messaging and style, and provide coaching as relevant.
Successful speakers who get booked again and again and again are memorable, relevant and make it easy for their audience to stay tuned in to their talk, and not tune the speaker out. Mary will observe your audience’s reaction during your talk, as well as her own perspective based on:
a) being in that audience
b) 20 years experience observing and giving feedback to speakers and presenters.
Depending upon the feedback she will then provide coaching as necessary.
If it is not logistically viable to attend a live talk, (if you are delivering in the Seychelles!) Mary can observe you deliver to her, via Zoom or similar, or in person again, if logistically viable.
I have enjoyed working with Mary twice so far on developing my speaking business, and I’m certainly looking forward to our continued working relationship. Mainly because she is providing extremely useful content and feedback, and partly because she is fun, supportive and positive to work with. It’s a great time right now (during COVID19) to work on your speaking business, content, delivery, messaging, and Mary is perfectly placed to help with that. Paula Reid Speaker
"I strongly recommend working with Mary. She helped me as a professional speaker to develop my speaking business. And even more important to me, Mary helped me to be a better speaker and to have more impact with my audiences. Whether your are a professional or occasional speaker, give Mary a chance to help you with her amazing, very practical and (speaker's) life changing tools and insights!" Bruno Marion Speaker
“I have had the pleasure of working with Mary on a number of client events. This has included in my role as a professional public speaker brought in to support her workshops, while I have benefitted greatly from her vast experience when developing and delivering leadership and development events of my own. Her expertise in developing meaningful, impactful and well-planned training and workshop events becomes clear the moment you start to work with her. She played a key role in helping me to stretch myself and deliver a higher quality of event for corporate clients in Europe and North America. At a time when clients are always demanding a high quality of output from events, Mary has the depth of experience and talent necessary to ensure a positive outcome and excellent delegate feedback.” Mark Gallagher Speaker
