About Me: Martha Leishman
We specialise in interview skills training. We can also design and deliver training on communication with teams of actors, skilled at role-play and feedback. A professional actor and voice-over artist, Martha’s coaching is informed by live performance techniques.
Do you need practical help with your presentations?
Would you like to be able to speak in front of people with confidence?
If you are looking for support with your presentation then we can help. Based in the west end of Glasgow, we offer specialist coaching support for successful, confident presentations and interviews. We will work on your speech looking at both content and delivery. By building your speech together we can help you find your authentic voice. We ‘rehearse’ prior to your speaking event, in the way actors rehearse with their director before performing on stage. We support your training with performance techniques to strengthen your delivery and help build rapport with your audience.
Our coaching process can help you gain confidence, find your strengths and passions and enable you to make presentations that resonate with your audience.
If you are looking for role-play training then we have a team of actors on hand, skilled at playing ‘real’ characters. Together we can help you make memorable training events. With our team of actors, based in central Scotland but able to travel over the UK, we design and deliver scenarios from appraisals and interviews to consultants’ meetings, and offer motivational and developmental feedback. Whatever the skill for development, we bring a dynamic experiential role-play intervention to develop the confidence and learning of our participants.
HELP WITH PUBLIC SPEAKING
Would you like the confidence to be a larger than life version of you? Actors have their own rehearsal time and their own director before going on stage – why shouldn’t you? We can input techniques and skills that support your interviews, enable you to influence or speak powerfully in public.
