Our company started life back in 1998 when Duncan Holmes (Boo) and Jonathan Bacon formed a partnership and created a course that blended two worlds: the world of business and the world of theatre.
One day, having left their jobs at Lloyds of London and a travel company to train at the world-renowned London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, Boo and Jon were reflecting on the challenges common to both worlds and came to the realisation that the business world had a lot to learn from the theatre and vice-versa. Combining their skills and experience from both worlds created the perfect recipe for their first “Power of Speech” course.
20 years later, all our courses and coaches still reflect the subtle combination of these two worlds. Our courses are high-energy and impactful whilst remaining true to the business world of today. This carefully balanced approach is what makes an immediate and noticeable difference.
