Creating authentic, powerful speakers


Speakeasy Coaching is a Public Speaking training agency with Personality. We use practical and effective methods to make your audience sit up and listen. Being a great communicator doesn’t mean turning into someone you’re not. Our coaching encompasses your personality.  

What’s different about Speakeasy Coaching?

Do you find the Public Speaking coaching on offer to be formal and outdated? We did. Public Speaking has evolved, long winded styles of presenting are gone. You no longer have to leave your personality at the door. Effective public speakers connect more powerfully with their audience by being themselves and by adding humour.

Can humour enhance audience engagement?

The most common denominator of TED talks last year was humour. Humour keeps your audience engaged, breaks up technical language, and lightens even the most heavy information loads.


At Speakeasy, we know how to innovate your speech to make audience engagement a priority. We take a fresh approach to unleash the Speaker within to deliver a presentation that forms connections, influences decisions and motivates change. We help clients with TED talks, Corporate Business Pitches, Online presenting and Networking presentations.

How does the coaching work?

Speakeasy coaching can be virtual or in person. There’s one to one coaching and group coaching. Training can be delivered in-house or at our offices. Team development training is tailored to suit your company’s objectives and can be on a half day, one or three day basis. There’s also regular group workshops and courses including the unique four week Public Speaking course

Speakeasy Coaching will change how you feel about Public Speaking and give you the confidence and know-how to inspire your audience with a presentation style that’s engaging, memorable and persuasive.
