What our clients say

I’ve worked with a broad range of clients – but what they all have in common is recognising the value of creating confident, engaging presenters. People who can positively connect with, and influence, their audiences for measurable action and results.

Below is a sample of client comments, followed by organisations I’ve worked with.

Sarah’s in-house presentation was exactly what we were looking for. Our team are experienced presenters and trainers but were looking to identify areas we could improve and help the team transition into the online space of webinars and video conferencing. Sarah’s easy presentation style suited our group perfectly.”

Judy KynastonGM - Early Childhood Australia

Friendly, welcoming environment – not intimidating. So informative; great notes. Sarah is calm, engaging, funny; very good with constructive criticism, really wants to help you and that comes across.”

Mandy KelleyManager HMH chartered accountants

Being a lawyer, public speaking is something I have to do regularly. I had previously been a confident speaker until, out of nowhere, I suffered a crisis of confidence. I saw Sarah for two sessions. She was exceptionally understanding and patient. She gave me really practical and specific strategies that worked to not only build my confidence, but to also improve my public speaking resilience, ability and skill.

I highly recommend seeing Sarah if you’re struggling with confidence and/or want a specifically tailored program for improvement.”

Ruth BarsonHuman rights lawyer, Melbourne

Sarah Denholm provided our Architect members with realistic tips on how to better pitch to clients and present at Awards and other events. Her engaging presentation allowed the audience to contribute without the pressure of forced participation – this was really well received. Thank you to Sarah and we will be recommending her to anyone in need of advice or public speaking training!”

I was able to get my confidence back using techniques suggested by Sarah.  Do this course if you want to overcome your public speaking demons. I have attended many such courses over the years, however, none of them come close to the effectiveness of Sarah’s course. Sarah is awesome! A great coach, full of encouragement and a calming influence. Her course is great, so are her techniques. Thank you Sarah”

As someone with a fear of Public Speaking, I was hesitant to have training in something that I really did not enjoy. Sarah made me feel relaxed instantly, and gave me excellent advice in all aspects of public speaking. Since her training I have conducted two training sessions, both of which went very well. Prior to Sarah’s training I would not have had the courage to do this. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking to improving their presentation and communication skills. Oh, and I did Public Karaoke this weekend – your Public Speaking training definitely worked!”
