We have been inspiring communicators for more than twenty-five years. As a former BBC News Editor and a Royal Shakespeare Company Voice Coach we took the best practices from the radio, television, and theatre into the world of business.
When we started this business we had a lot of enthusiasm, a bagful of tools and techniques and a clear idea of what energetic and engaging communication looked like. We were successful and our participants immediately began to make the changes that they wanted.
However, we would sometimes find when working with the same people again that some of their skill had ‘slipped off.’ They said, ‘it wasn’t really them.’ We quickly added to our skill set techniques around identity, mind-set and beliefs, coaching skills, and applied neuroscience to help people embody their communication and leadership.
Our approach really sticks because it is built around the individual, helping them to find communication styles and behaviours that are authentic so that they don’t feel fake or they are putting on a show. It leads to real connection and delivers the true meaning behind their words as well as trust in what they say. We believe it is this all-encompassing mind and body approach that differentiates us.
Our mission is to inspire communicators to fulfil THEIR potential.

Engagement scores surrounding future vision increased 22 percentage points amongst business leaders and across the broader organization; a remarkable result in a year of change. ”Laila Gillies, Head of Human Resources,
