"Christopher helped me understand that whilst there are many strands in a story, it is important to focus on a few select ones. He helped me to distil down my thoughts to those that were most interesting, and most relevant to the subject of the day. I was really petrified of speaking without speaking notes. The coach helped me gain comfort with cue cards and manage my fear in that way. I was able to free myself from the notes and therefore be much more natural and authentic and speak from my heart. As a result, I am far more comfortable today as a speaker, am happy to speak now without a full written speech and just cue cards. I have way more confidence."
