How Delivery Coaching Will Help You...

The aim is to come across as eloquent, confident and conversational. You also want to look like you’re having fun.

Every client we work with has different delivery challenges to overcome (nerves being the only constant) but having watched presenters at work for over a decade, we’ve identified a few key factors in delivering your speech like a pro…

This is the linguistic area concerned with intonation, stress and the rhythm of your speaking. It’s what adds life to your speech. It can change an average sentence into something magical.

As a Scot, If you know you’re prone to a monotone style (and so many people are) we’ll work at reprogramming your brain and experiment with the undulations of your delivery.

If you have a flat style of speaking, pretend you’re telling a story to a toddler. Get expressive. Become playful.


Talking too fast is a big problem. Rushing your delivery makes guests feel uncomfortable and creates a nervous atmosphere for everyone.

Equally, talking too slowly and formally, can make the speaker seem robotic.

So, how do you strike the balance between authority and confidence, and sounding like you’re playing a podcast at half speed? Well, with our help!

It’s a biggie. As well as sounding relaxed, you need to look relaxed. An audience picks up body language cues.

  • Are your shoulders back?
  • Do you look relaxed?
  • Is your chin upwards and your head tilted towards your guests?
  • Are you using your hands?
  • Are you using facial expressions to full effect? Facial expressions can add an extra layer of humour so we’ll work on this
  • Are you smiling? Other than any dearly departeds, we hope you are smiling throughout.

A conversational style includes pauses.

A pause is essential when you expect laughter, and you should never talk over it once it lands. Speakers often move on from the joke too quickly and don’t give their audience a chance to react.

So, we’ll practise your pauses.

After each thank you, take a second to make eye contact and nod your head towards the person you’re addressing. After delivering a romantic line, take the time to look at your partner and smile. These moments can feel just as meaningful as the words themselves.

Eye contact increases trust and connection, so we’ll rehearse this too. We’ll imagine who you’re specifically addressing throughout the speech.

Crucially, look at your partner when you’re talking to them.  Allow this moment to breathe for added effect.

We’re rated ‘Excellent' on Trustpilot for a reason...

All I can say is that I was able to deliver - and then some. Every joke landed and the slightly risky audience participation elements went down a storm. I could not have asked for a better outcome.
Delivery coaching was 5*. It wasn't just obvious stuff, I really learnt a lot about how to give a funny speech and we were able to make some adjustments on the fly based on what worked in the speech when it was being delivered and what didn't.
My Delivery session was so helpful, so much crammed into an hour and then further support afterwards with notes and some minor amends. Heidi knocked it out the park again, having helped with my groom’s speech last year.
