The 'Goldilocks' Approach to Presence

Not too hot, Not too cold - Just right!

Do you need to build up your Presence?

Or maybe you need to 'tone it down' a bit...

I work with business owners, senior leaders and ambitious professionals to help you build the Presence that is right for YOU.


Let's work on your: 

  • Level of Confidence

  • Ability to Influence

  • and your Measure of Gravitas

  • What is it?

  • Why want it?

  • How can I have more of it?


Introducing a brand new programme

The Personal Presence Accelerator™

You're a leader in your field - or you aspire to be.

Are you a legal, financial or HR professional - or a young professional
Working in another profession?

Perhaps a business owner?

As a Barrister with a background in Employment Law - and HR Consultancy - I understand your challenges and your aspirations. 

Let's 'Raise the Bar' ('scuse the pun!) - for you and your team. We can work in person, remotely on video - or a mix of both.

The Personal Presence Accelerator™


Many ambitious professionals, business owners and aspiring leaders - though technically good at what you do - are new to the concept of Personal Presence.


You may have much work to do before being able to consider the more challenging levels.

You may need to have more self-belief (but not too much!), be taken more seriously as a professional by becoming more influential and stepping up by building your communication, people and leadership skills.


You can work on the foundation and intermediate degrees of your Presence as you journey towards Impressivity. This will help you with networking, team meetings and giving credible presentations.

That's why I have created an online 'soft' skills video training membership portal - to give you the essential Mindset and Skillset before you are ready for the Impressivity Quotient™.

Skillblazers™ is designed exactly for you and your colleagues - perhaps more junior, returning to work after a long absence or taking on a new role. It gives you the essential building blocks so that you Find Your Presence.

Developing Leadership Skills,

Exceptional Coach

Scott is an excellent speaker, trainer and MC; he definitely knows how to engage an audience. He is also extremely professional in everything he does - you're in a safe pair of hands when Scott is involved.


His support as Vice President when I was the President of the Professional Speaking Association in Scotland was invaluable; he is organised, committed and a great sounding board. His unique skillset incorporating his legal background, negotiation and communication skills also make him an exceptional coach.


I recommend you speak with Scott if you are looking for a speaker, trainer or coach to support you or your team in developing leadership, communication and interpersonal skills.

How are you coping right now?

Remote working has expanded. Are you finding it a challenge?

Some of your team might be in the office, maybe some working from home and some on furlough. It can be stressful for you - and your clients may well be facing similar challenges. 

What are you doing to keep your team engaged - and yourself motivated?

Find the balance: business focus and team support


A great way to keep in touch with your team - and your team to keep in touch with each other - is training. This is allowed under the furlough rules and is a great way to meet your CPD needs too. Let's keep it interactive - not just another awkward team get together!
