About Me: Martha Leishman

About Me: Martha Leishman

A professional actor and voice-over artist, Martha’s coaching is informed by live performance techniques.  As an experienced and qualified coach, Martha will work with you on a series ‘rehearsals’ prior to your presentation.

Based in the west end of Glasgow, Martha’s approach is informed by her acting training at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the Guildford School of Acting and the National Theatre Studio. A qualified coach with Results Coaching and a member of the Association for Coaching, she can support you on both what you want to say, as well as how you want to say it. If you are nervous about your next pitch or presentation and need discreet and tailored support then get in touch.


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.


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.

Martha trained at the Royal Conservatoire in Scotland and then at the Guildford School of Acting. She has an MA in Scottish History from St Andrews University and is a fully qualified coach with Results Coaching and a member of the Association for Coaching.

At drama school she was struck by the power and the relevance of speaking and performance techniques for the workplace. Speech and Drama began over 20 years ago and Martha has been facilitating and coaching since then, whilst acting and recording voiceover work.
