Who is this for?
85% of jobs and deals are won with soft skills, not experience.
CEOs need to pitch hundreds of times over their career. Whether it's over coffee or on a stage, how you talk about your business matters.
I coach at Start Up Incubators & Accelerators to help founders create and perform amazing pitches that give voice to their business and investibility.
I work in-house and also offer my PitchCraft! course. A complete toolkit on how to craft, construct, practice and perform a winning investment pitch.
Support your staff by upskilling their most important business talent - communication.
I teach Powerful Presenter - a course to help Executives, speak up and deliver wonderful, compelling presentations. A great presentation has a positive effect on the whole team dynamics and raises the bar of communication for everyone. It's also the number one driver for promotion and the rated most challenging yet most valued skill by employees.
So many employees suffer in silence, unable to get their point across or be seen as leaders at work. The consequences of not having a voice in the business are far reaching and demotivating.
I coach online, (one to one and in groups) to empower people to find their voice, speak up and be heard positively.
Being heard can be challenging for women & minority groups where the dominant culture is not inclusive.

What people are saying...
Neve is an excellent communicator and coach. She's made such an impact on our founders here at Block Dojo, channeling out their self-esteem, to get out of their shell and most importantly be their authentic selves! All this in just two sessions it's hard to believe! Strongly recommend her services
Neve is just beyond amazing!!
I was part of a business incubator and I was very uncomfortable speaking in public, not a good thing if you have to pitch for funding. Neve completely changed that, the results; winning multiple pitch competitions! And closing our funding round soon!
Her knowledge and experience are out of this world I would recommend her to anyone!
Neve is extraordinary. She lectures with passion that is too fierce to ignore. Her course on presentation and influencing through speaking was uniquely useful and I would recommend her to anyone who is seriously thinking about taking on any role that involves public speaking. Highly recommended!
I had a great experience with Speaker Studio. In our session, Neve was super friendly and personable, which instantly put me at ease and allowed me to fully engage in the session. The session was a great balance of theory and fun practical exercises. Honestly speaking, Neve has done more for my confidence in public speaking, than any other public speaking course I have attended, it has been truly transformational. I would definitely recommend Speaker Studio 👍
Neve was superb and gave me a confidence boost. We did a few NLP exercises together and she’s definitely helped me believe in myself more and set me on a positive path to overcome my fears. In addition to that she’s kind and warm and someone who is passionate about helping others! I admire that. Thanks Neve

Neve is a special kind of trainer. Not only is she very perceptive to the atmosphere in the room, she is also very capable in tuning into the attendee's mood and comment / reflect on this with expert ease. Honest in her feedback, and always respectful, she lets people in her classroom shine, and knows which bits of feedback to provide that increase people's effectiveness and learning 10-fold. You will come out of her training / coaching sessions with new insights, and with a clear plan on how to make it work for you. It's been a pleasure working with her.
Neve taught me techniques and different styles in public speaking and how to tailor to different situations.
I learnt how to train large and small groups and how to really make a huge impression and make sure that everything I said was understood and retained.
I have had other workshops but they never made a difference - but Neve did. She is incredibly supportive and knowledgable which makes a huge difference in the teaching process.
If you have the opportunity to learn from her I would take that in a heartbeat.
Thank you for the changes you made to my life for the best!

I have had the pleasure of attending Neves trainings on several occasions over the last years. She is a very experienced and skilled trainer, with a remarkable presence, an ability to listen and learn from her participants – and to make them the centre of the training.
Her skill, combined with her warm and positive personality makes it a real pleasure to attend any training she delivers, and I would recommend Neve for training any group of sales trainers, retail staff or store managers.
Neve spotted my potential and helped me to understand how to captivate an audience.
Thanks to her vast knowledge in theatre, she built performance art into the training - I developed skills one would only hope to accrue at drama school. Merging these skills with her forward thinking delivery techniques, my training sessions were loved by all. Theatre was at the heart of my development with Neve, and through her guidance, I was able to convey confidence and captivate an audience of hundreds.
She saw what was missing and created something great, from nested loops to spoken word I am confident that I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for Neve's skill and drive in the field.
