Public speaking for public companies


You are the Chairman, a board member, or senior executive of a public company – but one thing you dislike most is public speaking.


Yet you have no choice but to step out in front of the cameras and microphones, or on stage.


There are investment conferences and investor roadshows, earnings calls with analysts, and Annual and Extraordinary General Meetings.


That's on top of presentations in the ordinary course of business, such as product launches, town hall meetings and client briefings. Possibly even media interviews.

So, how can you overcome any fear of public speaking and have productive stakeholder meetings, while enhancing your reputation?

Most common public speaking barriers

Even the most senior business leaders have concerns about public speaking. We solve the following problems:

  • Dislike making small talk with new shareholders

  • Dislike crowds

  • Dislike cameras

  • Dislike being eyed critically by audience members

  • Meetings aren't productive

  • Not sufficiently prepared

  • Be quicker to react with the right words



As a result of this coaching program, you will get comfortable:


  1. Hosting earnings calls, even if you dislike cameras

  2. Engaging shareholders, even if you dislike networking

  3. Facing difficult questions from institutional investors, even if you don't feel prepared or able to think quick on your feet

  4. Being your authentic self, even if you don't feel able to rise to the occasion

  5. Overcoming imposter syndrome
