My approach to presentation training
Your team will improve when they stand up. Preset to their peers and try new things. Public speaking transformation starts when people have a growth mindset. And work in a culture which celebrates learning in public.
Aka, your people embrace leaving their comfort zone.
While studying for my PGCEi at Nottingham University in 2019, I learned about the Zone of Proximal Development. The ZPD is “the space between what a learner can do without assistance and what a learner can do in collaboration with more capable peers.”
Our presentation training session is about creating this space for your team. So they can demonstrate their current level. And then improve from peer feedback and on-the-spot coaching.
As I learned to ride a bike, I remember watching my older brother and friend. They struggled to balance without training wheels. After a while, they got bored and went off to do something else. I had a go. Before my parents could believe it, I was riding my bike alone. My older brother and friend were soon doing the same when they saw me. Inspired first by my brother, I learned to ride my bike. I then inspired him. We were moving through the ZPD.
This is what we want for your team.
Before focusing on presentation training in 2013. I worked in advertising for five years as a creative director in Beijing. At Ogilvy, DDB, BBDO, DMG, EURO RCG and PAE.
Before advertising, I taught graphic design for three years in Beijing. As well as freelance design work in events, retail and digital.
But it all started in 2000 with my first job at Spiral Productions in London. I designed and animated interactive games for museums. At the Science Museum London. Explore @Brsitol, Dubai Chidlrens City, and the Singapore Science Centre.
I look back now and see how this was a formative experience. Working in information design and visual storytelling was a solid foundation. It set me up for my later focus on public speaking, presentations and pitching.
And what got the ball rolling?
I spent an incredible four years at Kingston University studying graphic design.
I love what I do
A good friend asked me after I told him about my decision to focus on presentations. “But what happens when you get bored and want to try something new?” he asked.
“I won’t, I told him.” And all these years since, I am proud to have trained professionals in these organisations.
The VW Group China, Google Shanghai, BMW, The British Embassy Beijing. Innovate UK, Hull School of Business. Software Cornwall, TechSouthWest Startup Studio, Brunswick PR, and Digital Catapult.
As well as hosting online and in-person 170+ PitchClub events.
After working with 1000’s of professionals, I have felt it when people really feel it. When they have time to reflect. Observe their peers. Share feedback, and then have another go. Thats when they improve.
Let’s do this for your team.

It helps but isn’t essential. I can help you develop them. However, please note this extends the scope of the project
Whichever format suits your team. I have facilitated both as well as hybrid. Being in the same room for at least one session is perfect. I have hosted over 150 online training sessions, and they are very effective. Online sessions should not be longer than 2 hours.
It depends on your goals. They are not essential.
Bring an active presentation to the session. We can use it to structure the practice sessions. However, this needs preparation time and can expand the scope.
We discuss your needs in the discovery call and alignment meeting. The training has to be relevant to your goals.
