Asperger's Superheroes Speaker

It would have taken me 2-3 years to learn what Scott helped me to achieve.

I recommend Scott if you want help to deliver an engaging, informative and impactful presentation on video.

Working with Scott has been an excellent experience. He's such a personable guy and passionate about impact.

We refined my presentational style. The open and measured feedback he provided was invaluable

Take Your
Speaking and Presentations 
from Nervous Wreck to Shining Star

1-2-1 coaching

or practical, interactive workshops

You can become an impressive, confident and engaging presenter or contributor.


Whether it's speaking up in meetings, facilitating challenging teams or making important presentations, we can tweak - or indeed even transform - your delivery and your Presence.

Even a 5-minute speech takes a lot of time, energy and preparation - and, of course, practice. You've got to squeeze a lot in, in a short time - without rushing or overloading your audience. 

I've coached contestants in 5-minute limit speaking competitions. Including winners!

I'll send you occasional snippets too.

So, go on - ask me a quick question about your upcoming presentation and I'll email you a personal response!

Spirit of Joy Award

Saturday @ PSA Inspire 2019-369.jpg

Delighted to be presented the 'Spirit of Joy' Award in memory of PSA President Joy Marsden who we sadly lost during her year as PSA National President.

The full presentation video is awesome - and even though it's completely showing off, you can see it here.

I was surprised and humbled - and utterly honoured to be presented with the Award by Joy's husband and son.

World Champion Debate Trainer

I was very fortunate to have been extensively involved in JCI (Junior Chamber International) - a voluntary network of about 180,000 active citizens aged 20-40 years from 100 countries and territories all over the globe.

As well as being National President of JCI Scotland I thoroughly enjoyed the cut and thrust of Debating. I was able to use my training as a Barrister and add in the more 'knock-about' and fun aspects of thinking on our feet - against some extremely competitive young professionals from a range of professions. 

In these team competitions, I became champion of JCI Glasgow and JCI Scotland and we went on to also become European Champions (pictured, in Poitiers, France 2005).

Though only a mere European Champion I went on to train a number of World Champions - in Scotland, Ireland, England, Denmark, Norway and Australia!

Fast-Track Your
Speaking Success

Speaking on stage or on video

to any audience - large or small


 even from your spare room... 

As a qualified Barrister, I've been speaking and presenting for many years.

I would love to help you to 'raise the bar!' (pun intended!).

That might mean overcoming debilitating nerves, helping you craft a well-structured speech or just working on making your delivery more engaging.


What kind of presentations do you deliver?

  • promoting your business in a short talk

  • delivering a message to your team

  • running a workshop or seminar

  • workplace presentation​

  • a sales pitch

If you had more impact, more engagement or more impressive delivery - what difference would that make to you?

Deliver an Engaging, Informative and Impactful Presentation
on Video

Andrew Marsh

Asperger's Superheroes Speaker

Thanks to Scott's help I won the PSA Scotland Speaker Factor 2020 competition - on video - and represented them in the national Professional Speaking Association UK & Ireland final.


Scott's gentle yet probing nature was ideal for me to get the best out of my talk. He helped hone it into shape in a sympathetic way, allowing me to use my own words and deliver the greatest impact.

We also worked on delivery which enabled me to overcome nerves.


I would happily recommend Scott to anyone wanting to get the best from their words to deliver an engaging, informative and impactful presentation.

It would have taken me 2-3 years to learn how to do what Scott helped me to achieve.


I became a confident speaker in my student days, winning team and individual trophies in 'mooting'.


You've probably heard of the saying 'a moot point'? Well, 'mooting' is a legal debate for law students - and that's what led to me deciding, as a law student, to become a Barrister instead of a solicitor.

It also led to me becoming European Debating Champion and training World Champion Debaters.

Scott is a passionate, enthusiastic and professional trainer. He has impeccable people skills and can make you feel instantly calm and confident.


His sessions are always imaginative, interesting and fun and the feedback we receive is always of the highest accreditation.


Building my confidence in Speaking and Debating resulted in me taking on the role of JCI Edinburgh President in 2014 and has greatly helped me in running my own business as an Independent Financial Adviser.
