Many people have a fear of presentations but the reality is that we’re always presenting ourselves to others whether it’s an audience of one or a hundred. The key is to know your audience, put the preparation in and then you can be your natural self. Joanna offers practical techniques and support to help individuals perform at their best in front of their chosen audience.
Testimonial – Alex Beresford – ITV Network Weather Presenter
My sessions with Jo have taken my presenting to the next level. Her coaching style brings out the best in me and her advice always rings in my ears before I go into the studio. It’s a great feeling when you put the training into action and see the results on-screen.
Testimonial – Dr. Sarah Parcak – Professor of Archaeology, The University of Alabama at Birmingham and BBC Presenter
I love public speaking and presenting, but I never quite knew how to improve. Joanna taught me how to be more confident in being ‘me’ and how to share my passion for archaeology with larger audiences.
She has a rare talent for making people feel comfortable in themselves, while publicly speaking. The skills I learned from Jo will help me for the rest of my career!
Even broadcasters and presenters have invariably started out disliking the sound of their own voice and can end up tuning in to their inner critic rather than focusing on what they’re saying. Voice coaching sessions are not just about how you sound but having the confidence to find your voice and tell your story. Joanna helps clients to capitalise on their natural talents and skills and discover the best way to express them.
Interview techniques are something we all need to embrace whether we’re applying for a place at University, a new position or in some cases reapplying for our own job. Many people spend the time worrying about the interview instead of planning and preparing properly. These sessions offer grounded and practical techniques to ensure you will perform at your very best on the day.
Media training sessions help individuals and organisations find a confident and assertive way to promote their products or people in front of the microphone or camera. Learn how to manage the message rather than let the message manage you. These sessions are practical, team building and enjoyable! Clients will leave feeling confident having learnt lots of tips from broadcast professionals.

I cannot recommend Joanna highly enough.
