All the work that I do is confidential and I would never betray a confidence. But I am proud that clients have sent me these comments:
Thank you so much for all your hard work with Ben. His presentation was fantastic. And I know that is down to the confidence you imbued him with. You were a star. Just think what a joy you have brought to that man’s life – he finally got his dream to make his speech to a national audience and he had the confidence to deliver it with gusto! That is no small thing you did for him.
I really hope we can work together again, I thoroughly enjoyed it – I love your techniques and learnt so much. Whenever and wherever I have the opportunity to work with you, I certainly will!
– Programme Director Holocaust Memorial Day Trust National Commemorative Event
I delivered my speech yesterday and it was a great success.
Thank you very much for your help. Your tips on releasing tension, on presentation and on highlighting the text to maintain energy and emphasis were invaluable.
I will do more speaking now.
I will be in touch for further help.
Thanks again, Best wishes,
– David Venus, David Venus & Co.
Thank you for your support and patience over the past months. The work we have done together was very helpful and enjoyable at the same time. It was a great pleasure meeting you and I hope we stay in contact in the future. With my best regards.
– CEO Pernod-Ricard
Dear Alan, a belated thanks for your help and support – we did well – to time and well received. As an informal double act, we were quite different from most other presentations (no bad thing) and the chemistry was tangible.
Thank you for your help – given how ill prepared we were the night before the action, your assistance and comments were invaluable.
– Director, Leading Multi-Family Office
Hi Alan – I applied your techniques in my event just before Christmas – and I enjoyed it too! Some positive feedback from the audience (over 600). I was conscious to focus on breathing, pause and using silence – as well as standing back on my heels – all seemed to work well! The preparatory exercises really helped too.
I would have no hesitation to recommend your services to others.
– Michael Easton, HR Director Elekta Limited
Alan is a wonderfully friendly person and took the time to get to know me, my personal goals and motivations for seeking voice coaching. He worked with me patiently and was always willing to tailor the sessions to what I wanted to get out of them. If you’re looking for some one-on-one voice coaching, I would highly recommend Alan.
– Krishna Srinivasan
Can I say a massive thank you for your attendance at the Student Media Conference recently. The feedback from your session was outstanding and the students who attended genuinely enjoyed it and found the workshop hugely insightful and useful. They particularly enjoyed your style of training and the topics covered during the session so thank you.
– Jak Curtis-Rendall, Queen Mary University of London
I found the sessions with Alan quite transformative. In consequence, I have much more confidence in meetings and interviews, and feel that I am getting a great deal more out of my voice day-to-day. Thanks, Alan!
– RH, Senior Civil Servant
Thank you for such an inspirational session.
I had so much fun that I completely lost track of time, something that doesn’t happen to me very often.
I must say you are a great start to a weekend – instant mood lightener. I’m looking forward to the next time!
I came to you because although I feel confident, I suspected I didn’t sound that way. The techniques you’ve taught me have definitely helped me with interviews.
You made me feel very welcome. And I left feeling I’d really achieved something.
You certainly listened to what I wanted and concentrated on those needs.
I feel I have made great improvements to my voice and my breathing.
I liked the fact that you seemed very quickly to pick up on my particular needs.
I just wanted to say thanks very much for your guidance on my speaking quest. Through practice and exercises I was able to deliver a fantastic toast and also a best man’s speech in the same weekend. It seems like a massive wall has come down for me and I am very appreciative of your help.
For the first time I was able to really look at myself, at how I presented to others. And to focus fully on the best and most effective way to reach an audience – without feeling nervous, without doubting my own abilities, and truly believing in myself as a trainer.
I have been doing my exercises and it has helped a lot. My meetings are going very smoothly.
People asked me how I had made such a huge jump from my previous speech!
I loved presenting with good clarity.
The speech was a smashing success. I received compliments all around!! A handful of people cried and one guy said…that was one of the best speeches ever, your wife will remember that forever! Everyone was shocked and impressed. I don’t think people expected what I delivered.
The simple act of you saying that there is nothing physically wrong with my voice was a real help. I now feel more confident and at ease in using my voice, even after just a few weeks.
