In a survey carried out with experienced Middle and Senior Executives designed to determine what they fear most, public speaking came out on top (death was 8th on the list).
With presentation skills identified as a key factor in business success and career advancement, this shouldn’t be the case.
Ahead in Speaking was started when Adrian Peck met Simon Gray in December 2013.
Adrian is a Trainer and Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a Sports Hypnotist, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Certified Business Coach. Since 2008, he’s worked with elite sports people across the UK, including World and Olympic medallists to empower them to overcome performance anxiety, deal with nerves and ultimately to win.
Simon is a Chartered Accountant, Entrepreneur and Business Leader who is required to give regular presentations to the business community on a variety of topics.
Simon explains: “Presenting is not easy – nerves, anxiety and disempowering self talk have all played their part in throwing me off course in the past. Having attended one of Adrian’s workshops my eyes were opened to a new way of approaching public speaking, which now enables me to deliver consistently with confidence, clarity and certainty. I was so impressed, I had to get Adrian’s message out to the business community and approached him with the idea of forming Ahead in Speaking – the rest as they say is history!”
With extensive experience in designing and delivering experiential training using the latest thinking on people development, Adrian delivers stimulating and active learning that delivers instantaneous results.
Utilising powerful tools including visualisation and state management to overcome fear, Adrian now empowers business people to be great communicators as both public speakers and in everyday business situations.
Ahead in Speaking offers a professional, empowering and innovative approach to successful public speaking and advanced communication skills.
Overcome your fear of public speaking and learn the tools and techniques to deliver with confidence, clarity and certainty.
