This speech from Shakespeare’s Hamlet was the inspiration for our company name when we launched in 1998.
We felt then and still do now that this quote perfectly encapsulates what we aim to empower our clients with: we want their words to flow “trippingly off the tongue”, with fluency and fluidity.
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.
25 years later, all the Speak The Speech 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.

Our objective is simple: we aim to give every person we coach consistent excellence.
Honesty and authenticity are the cornerstones that underpin our coaching.
Our mission is to make people the best that they can be and to provide consistent excellence in communication.
We aim to transform people by listening to their needs and giving them knowledge, skills and techniques that will help them to be the best they can be at all times.
We are flexible and can deliver our courses either face to face or online.
And this was never truer than when talking about speaking in public. It is very hard to be an effective communicator if you lack confidence. By breaking down fears and helping to build skills, we empower our clients to have that all important self-belief and turn their negatives thoughts into positive ones. Most of our clients leave the training feeling slightly taller than when they arrived!
Most of our clients have knowledge in abundance but don’t always have the ability to communicate that knowledge. Without clarity, even the greatest ideas run the risk of getting lost in a stream of complicated and unintelligible business language. So we provide a range of structural templates to suit different occasions; templates that ensure that thoughts and messages are easy to digest and are memorable to all that hear them.
Most of the great actors, painters, dancers, athletes and speakers rely on two things: talent and technique. We can’t help with the first but we can certainly help with the second! Having the proper technique to fall back on is imperative when the pressure is on and it feels like the eyes of the world are on you. We have those simple but highly effective delivery techniques to pass on that enables our participants to speak consistently well in any situation.
Our clients come from all corners of the globe and range from graduates right through to CEO’s and senior politicians as well as many professional sports organisations and teams.
Our combined experience covers plethora of sectors from Finance, Legal, Construction, NGO, Technology, Sports or Leisure.
