Come to this course and learn how to influence and persuade your audience so you can achieve your personal and business goals. Learn how to master your own public speaking talents to become a more influential, interesting and impactful presenter. You’ll give a 6 – 7 minute presentation each week, be given coaching and feedback by me, and each presentation will be video’d for you to view via a private link afterwards. Come along with your own work presentation each week, or learn to speak about topics which either interest or bore you 🙂 depending on what your current needs are.
There are three main areas of focus, and all the coaching is personalised for your specific needs:
1. Control: Build confidence, comfort and dealing with any nerves and self-consciousness (if this applies to you). Think clearly and calmly and avoid ‘rambling’ or mind-blanks
2. Frame: Learn flexible, effective frameworks to structure your presentation for clarity and impact. Sharpen and refine core messages
3. Engage: Own the space – deliver with impact, authentically. Persuade: sell your ideas effectively. Build presence and authority and learn how to create high audience engagement
“Sarah takes her participants on a journey which allows them to play out different styles of structure and techniques in a non-judging environment. Benefits: increased reassurance; greater awareness/perception; clearer communication. Sarah has sensational insights, ability to let conversation run, and just a great operator.” – Ben, ANZ banking
“Working with Sarah is enlightening, thought-provoking and fun. No matter how much public speaking you have already done, she has much to offer to hone your skills and boost your confidence. Sarah’s suggestions are clear and easy to grasp yet always based of a wealth of knowledge. I’ve greatly enhanced my own confidence and clarity through working with Sarah and I would recommend her highly to anyone who is looking to improve their speaking skills.” – Karen Humphreys, Head of Junior Royal Northern College of Music, U.K.
You’ll be given clear systems to:
- understand your own presentation personality and how best to work with it (you won’t be forced into any stylistic ‘box’!)
- gain stronger presence and charisma: own the space (even if you’re naturally shy or introverted)
- deliver dynamically and flexibly, and enhance your vocal presence: how to work with your voice
- act like a leader on stage
- refine your storytelling for maximum impact, without rambling or uncertainty over what to add or subtract
- use two specific social relatedness models to build high levels of audience connection and engagement
- understand how the best presenters create and deliver their presentations (I show you how they do it, so you can replicate what appeals to you)
My story. I really struggled with being in front of an audience: firstly in my original career as a Classical pianist, and then when I started to speak in public. I was truly awful: self-conscious, shaky, sometimes incoherent…and I suffered from mind-blanks. So I decided to learn what works – initially to overcome my anxiety, and ultimately to find out how to speak with authority and presence. And I’m not special: I just learned the tools and practised them. You can do this too.
Overall course benefits. Your competence as a speaker is a major gateway to influence, impact, increased profits, higher income. You’ll have less stress, less wasted time and energy – and greater job satisfaction and peace of mind. Come along with your own prepared speech each session so you can practise it and be coached on what’s most important to you. You can extend your comfort zone in a safe space where you can try the new, proven techniques – and receive feedback, encouragement and support. You’ll also be recorded on video each week and the video sent to you after each session.
Course Uniqueness. All of this took me years to learn; you can come along to 3 sessions and implement this valuable information. Learn through spaced repetition, which is how our brains learn best. I’m beside you all the way with email and phone support, because I’m totally committed to your success. You’ll also receive comprehensive handouts.
Plus there’s my 100% money back guarantee. If the course isn’t for you, ask for your money back after the 1st session, no questions asked.
So come to the Influence and Persuade Your Audience Course in Melbourne, and learn how to have greater influence and power as a speaker. Book now by clicking on the full payment or 3 instalment buttons at the top or bottom of this page. I look forward to working with you.

I would highly recommend Sarah, and would use her services again without hesitation. She gets great results, is personable, and expert at what she does.” – Helen Boileau, Director of Legal Network. Legal Recruitment Specialists.
“The techniques and the facts behind the them really provides support and belief. Sarah’s training: very good – very interesting. No boring bits!” – Liam Moir, IT problem manager at Superpartners
Last year I was overseeing the management of a group of 20 projects for a large Melbourne-based company. Sarah was engaged to improve the presentation skills of Project Managers who were expected to present their progress to the CEO and senior board members regularly, and felt unprepared for the task ahead of them. She came into the group, quickly established rapport with all the staff and was able to assist them in a very short timeframe. There was noticeable improvement in the way the staff presented themselves and their confidence grew rapidly.
We felt very privileged to have been able to work with Sarah and I believe that the skills each person gained will stand them in good stead in many roles throughout their careers.” – Lynette Jordan, ICS Pty Ltd
‘Sarah Denholm was the guest speaker at the Whitehorse Business Group’s ”Speaking for Business” Seminar. Sarah led a very interesting and informative session that received an overwhelmingly positive response from our guests. Her presentation was well summed-up by one guest, who said that Sarah “certainly practices what she preaches”. We would highly recommend Sarah to any organisation interested in learning more about public speaking.’ – Amanda Paterson, Deputy Chair, Whitehorse Business Group
“Very useful, practical and interesting information. Hearing Sarah’s own experience created trust and, from my observations, gave the group, including myself, a sense that Sarah really did understand each persons fears and insecurities when it came to public performance. This, combined with the simple, effective physical tools and other tips resulted in a very comprehensive and effective presentation. Would recommend Sarah highly.” – Centro Retail participant
