Creating Compelling Content

Compelling content is the cornerstone of any successful marketing or communication activity. If you’re having trouble articulating what you want to say, let me pick your brains and transform your ideas into content that draws audiences into your world, using an easy-to-understand form of global English. Whether you need help crafting content for an article, a paper, your website, a speech or presentation, for your online channels or for something completely different, I can help.

Business Storytelling

No, I’m not suggesting that you start your next communication campaign with “once upon a time…” Sharing information in the form of appropriate business stories, or using anecdotes and stories to bring an idea or concept to life, is something that the best leaders and communicators do naturally, and it’s a skill that can be learned. I bring my years of oral storytelling and business communication expertise together to help you uncover, refine and tell stories that will engage, motivate, inspire and drive action.

Presentation & Public Speaking Skills

If you need to stand in front of an international audience and present an idea, pitch a project or talk about a new initiative, you need to make sure that both your content and your delivery are perfect. This is difficult in your native tongue and if you have to do it in English, it can be doubly difficult! I offer support and coaching to help you plan your presentation, craft your content and learn how to draw on your natural strengths to deliver a powerful speech or presentation in English. I also offer presenting and public speaking workshops for teams .

Cultural Intelligence

On the surface, it may seem that your team, suppliers, clients and peers share the same ideals, values and beliefs. In reality, we all have different beliefs and value systems that hide “below the surface” and that can cause significant communication problems if ignored. I offer cultural intelligence assessments and cross-cultural training programmes to help people understand their own set of values and those of others to improve communication, efficiency and performance.
