Find your voice: present with confidence
Dissolve your fears and speak clear
Presenting and speaking to groups is part of most people's working life. An effective speaker needs confidence, knowledge and skill to convey the key message.
In this one-day small group introductory presentation skills programme you will learn how to manage your nerves, use your voice, engage with an audience and convey your message effectively.
Maximise your personal impact
Engage, inspire and motivate
Maximise your presence, credibility and impact. Find your voice, learn the secrets of master communicators and deepen your confidence. Extend your ability to connect with others, build your flexibility and improve your influence.
An advanced, small group, two-day public speaking and presentation skills programme includes tools, techniques and approaches to become confident, impactful and authoritative speakers.
Storytelling for success
Facts tell. Stories sell.
The human brain is wired to be receptive to stories. Stories engage, bring ideas alive and communicate messages in a way that people connect with. Stories add power to your presentations and supercharge your impact.
This small group one-day programme focuses on how to create, source and structure a compelling story with which to convey your all-important message, how to weave that into your presentation and how to deliver it confidently so the message is heard and embraced.
Step up, speak clear, stand out
Your voice matters. Using your voice to persuade, to compel and to motivate will dramatically improve the results you get when you are speaking, one-to-one and one-to-many.
Our focussed voice coaching takes place one-to-one or in small group sessions. You will learn how to connect your voice to your mind and body. You'll explore physiology, posture, breathing and techniques for extending the range and variability of your speaking voice.

What clients say
A selection of recent testimonials
Glen Savage was so well received at our annual Pharmacy Guild of Australia conference, we procured him for the following year as well!. His content and presentation is spot on and provides essential strategies that can be implemented in businesses large and small. A terrific presenter and we recommend Glen highly!
Kos Sclavos, Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference Chairman. Immediate Past National President Pharmacy Guild of Australia
I had an important message and I wanted to make an impact. Glen’s ‘Voice of a Leader’ programme transformed how I speak and present. With his combination of 1:1 coaching and presentation strategies I delivered my first conference talk. The amazing crowd response inspired me to go further and Glen coached me all the way to a talk on the TEDx stage. Glen supported me to craft the content, structure and delivery of my talk and was available when I needed his help. ‘Voice of a leader’… it’s too important not to discover it.
Dr Dimple Devadas - Doctor, Psychology coach, Global head of strategy WWA
Glen has a very natural and easy style which makes participants on courses feel completely at ease. He has an amazing ability to give difficult feedback in such a way that people walk away feeling good about themselves even when they have not achieved what they expected. A rare skill. He is an exceptional facilitator and an incredibly entertaining speaker. If you have the chance to be coached or trained or by Glen I strongly recommend that you take full advantage of a fantastic opportunity.
Simon Maryan, The Mind-Body Coach, Mentalist, Author and Speaker
After accepting an invitation to give a 40-minute speech at the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments annual conference, my nerves started to kick in and I contacted Glen! His personal coaching, with his logical approach to planning, his astute, perceptive insights into the finer points of public speaking and his calm reassurance all resulted in me delivering a speech of which I could be proud.
