What Our Clients Say

  • Graham kindly coached me on the delivery of my recent wedding speech - something a groom wants to look and sound his best at, especially in front of his wife, friends, family and a large crowd of inebriated in-laws. Not only was he professional and sensitive to my anxiety, he was also patient with my mumbling and public speaking inexperience. Graham highlighted the words I needed to pause upon and corrected the speed at which to speak. He taught me how to carry the sentences, remember the verse and deliver a good joke. This greatly improved my confidence and considerably contributed to the exceptional results on the big day. My speech would have been somewhat disastrous without his much needed input and I would recommend his thoughtful tuition to any nervous speaker or up and coming crowd pleaser.
