Your stories are unique and individual to you, and so may be the help you’re looking for, so although I offer some core programmes, they can be tailored to meet your needs.
These outlines are therefore here just to give you an idea of how we might work together. Very rarely do 2 clients follow exactly the same format or breakdown of time.
A 60 min one-off session aimed at helping you find your everyday stories and the learning behind them that you can go on to use in your speaking.
This is for you if you’re
· wondering where to start finding your stories
· not sure which part of your story or stories to use
· need help with finding the learning behind your stories
Together we work through a series of topics to help jog your memory to find those hidden stories that make you who you are, explain why you're doing what you're doing and help convey the message you want others to hear.

"My "one minute" for networking has always made me feel uncomfortable as I mumble and stumble my way through it. But in only an hour Rachel gently coaxed my stories out and made them into multiple one minutes that will engage my audience and hopefully bring me business. Let Rachel bring out the storyteller in you too." Mercedes Evans www.mercedesevansphotography.com
Designed to help you prepare for a specific talk, whether as a one-off presentation or one that you will use again.
Although the structure of your programme will be adjusted to meet your specific needs, this example gives you an idea of how it might work:
Session 1: Crafting your story
Session 2: Polishing your script
Session 3: 1st rehearsal
Session 4: the Final rehearsal
The timing of the programme will depend on your deadline, and is normally scheduled within a 3 month period.
Within that 3 month time frame, I offer script reviews and email support.
This is for you if you want coaching over a sustained period of time.
One month you might want several hours of my time, the next you might not want any.
As one of my priority clients, I will do my utmost to accommodate your requirements when needed, while you stagger the cost of your coaching over either 6 or 12 months.
Whatever help you’re looking for, let’s start with a conversation about what you want to achieve and how I can help you do that.
Story Telling for Leaders
Newly promoted to a leadership role and feeling daunted by how to engage your team?
Want to inject some life and energy into an otherwise dry presentation?
Looking for training to inspire and up-skill your team, to help them stand out from the crowd?
Great leaders share their vulnerability and make themselves real to their people, as well as demonstrating their competence as a leader.
Sharing your personal stories is a great way of doing that. But which stories, and how do you do that?
That’s where I come in.
Whether you’re looking for a training course, a group coaching programme or individual coaching as part of a leadership development programme, let’s start a conversation to see what you need and how I can help.
Sometimes the greatest testimonials for speaker coaching come from the audience:
'I had already written my first keynote speech when I contacted Rachel for coaching and it included some of my stories. I wanted her help to make it the best it could be because I was feeling anxious about presenting it. Through our series of one to one sessions, she helped me take it to a much more professional level. She gave me so many useful tips on crafting the stories and also on my delivery, and was also great fun to work with and super supportive! The speech went really well and has already led on to other things. Job well done, thank you Rachel.'
Barbara Cosgrave, Business Style Expert. www.barbaracosgrave.co.uk
'I am an experienced trainer who needed to take my presentations skills up a notch for a high profile 'gig'. I asked Rachel for help. It was well worth the investment. Her expertise, clear feedback and coaching very quickly improved my speaking, my body language and the phrasing of my content. Most importantly, I am far more confident now. If you’re planning on doing any speaking, you definitely need a session with Rachel. She really knows her stuff.'
‘As a friend of R’s, I of course already knew her story, but you helped her tell it so beautifully. I was really moved by the way she told it in her presentation and I know she feels that’s down to you.’
