Celia speaks on speaking skills, sales and persuasion in a way that is amusing, engaging and refreshingly original.

Under her brand, Speaking Success, Celia has developed 4 ‘pillars’ of skills that form the foundation of speaking success – iPrepare, iPresent, iPromote and iPersuade. All of her speeches and workshops draw from The iPersuade Principles.

If you add her trademark humour to that mix, Celia delivers a twist on communication skills that will liven up any conference or event.

Celia’s ability to combine her messages with drama, energy and skill is incredible. Her style is captivating and very powerful, several days after the conference her message is still ringing loud and clear in my head.

iPresent: How to be a more engaging speaker

Celia reveals the ‘terms of engagement’ that come from understanding both the psychology of people and the discipline of performance.

She uses her life as a performer to inform this presentation skills training and claims that ‘anyone can speak’ but that most people simply ‘don’t know what they are doing.

Audience takeaways are:

• Understand how to be more engaging when you speak
• Learn how to structure your content so that audiences listen
• Gain the confidence to be relaxed and informal on stage

iPresent can be run as a 1- or 2-day workshop using elements of iPrepare to increase confidence, or elements of iPromote if people need to practice pitching. Please ask for The iPersuade Principles brochure if you are interested in booking a workshop.

Celia also coaches at a senior level on presentation skills and speech writing. Please ask for more details.

I just wanted to say a quick thank you for not only keeping me entertained but also for giving my enthusiasm a huge boost. You reminded me that regardless of the pressures of the job, I can step outside of that a create my own clarity and communicate well and this will still have an impact.
