Speaker Coaching and Mentoring

  • Are you interested in taking your public speaking to the next level?
  • Do you want to break into the world of professional speaking?
  • Are you keen to be a more engaging, dynamic and memorable speaker?
  • Do you want to become more confident when speaking in front of an audience – be it a formal company presentation, or a weekly team meeting?

Whether you are wanting to break into the pro speaking circuit or feel confident presenting at a weekly meeting, I can help.

With more than 25 years as an event manager, and nearly 15 of those managing large international conferences, I know what an event manager wants in a speaker, and I know what an audience expects.

As a coach I can help you clarify your speaking goals, work with you to set actions, and keep you accountable and moving forward.


For those wanting to raise their profile as speakers, or start getting paid gigs, I’ll share with you what I’ve learned throughout my years of developing conference programs, mentoring speakers and booking keynotes.

Together we can work on:

  • Marketing and promotion;
  • Why you should be working with speakers bureaus, and how;
  • What to charge;
  • Setting up technical riders;
  • Delivering an engaging presentation that will leave audiences buzzing
  • Audience followup and getting your next gig

Working via skype, location is no barrier, and I currently have clients I work with across Australia and New Zealand.

Here’s what one client, Scott Peters – Professional Speaker, based in Auckland has to say about working with Davina:
