In advance of my first ever public speaking gig, at a high profile event, I booked one to one coaching sessions with Chris Cooper.  They were invaluable.  Through working with Chris I learned so much in such a short space of time that I was able to pull together a well-structured and powerful PowerPoint presentation and deliver my talk with confidence.  It clearly paid dividends as I received some fabulous feedback.  This is a direct quote from one of the delegates:

“First time?!  Thought you created a clear, engaging and informative talk.  Have to say that, today, no other speakers I have seen have actually got the audience to interact with our own thoughts (rather than simply talking to us and asking rhetorical questions only) 😊 “

YAY!  Thank you Chris for your encouragement, support and for believing in me.  Sarah J Naylor
