As humans, stories matter; and Jo has incredible knack of curating tales that better us all"

1

GET TO THE CORE

In the first phase we dive deep to get to the core of your message. I ask lots of questions, offer journalling prompts and speaking prompts to flesh out what's on your heart to share, what you care about and all the stories, research, examples and anecdotes that land your message. 

2

CREATE THE TALK

From all that I've heard I take time to create a first draft. We then enter into a collaborative process and refine the talk until it is the talk that is everything you wanted to say and the talk you can't wait to give

3

MASTER YOUR DELIVERY

Now the talk is nailed it's all abut the delivery and ensuring you feel embodied and authentic as you take the stage. 
In this phase you will receive intensive Speaker Coaching that will serve you for years to come - you'll know how to take the stage, how to move an audience, how to speak with presence and power, all the while feeling confident and at home in your own skin. . 

If you have a burning message to share
if you want to have a talk you LOVE,

that is exactly everything you have been wanting to say, 

that you can use over and over to share your message

and

you want to experience yourself as an authentic,
embodied speaker who speaks from the heart,

I'd love to work with you

TESTIMONIAL

From the very first session, it was evident that Jo possessed a remarkable talent for understanding individual needs and tailoring her guidance accordingly.
She listened attentively to my concerns and aspirations, creating a safe and nurturing environment that allowed me to explore my strengths and overcome my insecurities.

 

Jo's genuine belief in my potential served as a constant source of motivation, enabling me to push myself and discover new levels of self-assurance.

About your coach

As an actress with a wealth of experience across stages in Dublin, Scotland and Australia and a student of the esteemed Jacques Lecoq theatre School in Paris, I care deeply about storytelling and its ability to create connection.

I know how painful it is to feel like you have so much to say and yet speaking it is terrifying and know that the way to become a great speaker is to be genuinely seen and heard. This is what I am passionate about and what I offer to my clients; a space where they are free to express, where they feel deeply seen and heard and can connect with the value of who they are and the message they have to share. 

A place where they can become the speakers and ocmmunicators they know themselves to be. On stage and off stage. 

I'm a child of Deaf adults, have worked as an Auslan interpreter, presented on radio, worked as a Stage Manager in Ireland for 2.5 years (with the world's best storytellers!), delivered events in a human-centred design methodology globally for over 12 years and have spoken on topics such as Listening, Storytelling, Front of room Presence, Finding your voice, Curiosity and Personal Agency.

I have worked with clients delivering talks at TEDx, conferences, festivals and keynotes. 

Whether you'd like to find your voice or you're wanting to take the stage,  book a call, I'd love to connect.
