Who I help

Is this you?

My clients come from a range of industries. I’ve found that they tend to be:

  • Managers, directors or executives
  • Working for multinationals with a diverse cultural workplace
  • From a technical background. Including engineering, IT, science, R&D, finance, accounting, tax or other process-based disciplines.
  • More introverted than extroverted
  • Successful in their field
  • Intelligent and well-educated
  • More comfortable talking with other technical people
  • Open to professional advice
  • Motivated to take action to make change

I help clients who face these scenarios. Are some of these statements true?

Fail to make an impact while speaking:

  • Look very nervous while presenting often just reading from the screen
  • Cannot handle very direct, tough questions with confidence
  • Ineffective when called upon to make a case
  • Avoid putting recommendations forward
  • Feel under pressure when you need to speak without preparation
  • Improvement in communication skills required before further promotion considered

Struggle when facing senior managers:

  • Nervous while presenting to senior managers in meetings or conference calls
  • Fail to make an impact and influence important stakeholders
  • Under pressure when speaking with senior executives from non-technical backgrounds
  • Struggle during teleconferences – especially with international executives
  • Frequently cut off by other managers and interrupted while speaking
  • Stop giving data-heavy technical presentations to non-technical people
  • Increased frequency in communication with senior managers following a promotion

Unable to get to the point while speaking:

  • Need to be more concise and to the point when giving briefings
  • Find it difficult to get to the main point in a short time
  • Unable to express their ideas in a concise way
  • Has very good technical ability but cannot hit the main point without talking for a long time

Unaware of how the audience perceives them:

  • Although in a senior position, not regarded as a valued business partner
  • Team members assess the executive low on motivational ability
  • Unaware of their audience’s reactions
  • Unsure how to connect and build rapport with your audience
  • Prefers to write a report and email it rather than pick up the telephone

Worried about an upcoming high-stakes public talk:

  • High stakes client-facing presentation has been scheduled
  • Representing company at public events or conferences

I don’t work with everyone. Engagements can only be successful with clients who are willing to be responsible for working towards their success as well. Clients will be most successful in working with me when you:

  • Are motivated with a driving ambition to improve
  • Have a clear goal or target
  • Take action and complete assignments
  • Are open to accept constructive feedback and take action on it
  • Are willing to try new methods
  • Don’t make excuses
  • Are proactive about asking for help
  • Have a desire to project strengths more clearly to senior management
  • Love to learn and want to have fun doing it

My experience has been built across cultures and industries. I work across a diverse range of industries. This means that I bring a wider range of perspectives, insights and approaches to all my clients. I tend to focus on these industries:

  • Industrial
  • Fast moving consumer goods
  • High technology
  • Retail
  • Finance
  • Professional services

I also have experience with these industries: engineering, logistics and global sourcing, environmental protection, publishing, automotive and government.
