About Alex

How it all started...

Having spent the first 20 years of my life actively avoiding public speaking, I found myself co-running a charity fundraising organisation after graduating from the University of Birmingham. We built the business quickly and within a few years had 250 people working for us and raised over £12.5 million in the process. Unfortunately for me, public speaking was at the very heart of our growth strategy! I would spend 3 months each year travelling across the country delivering presentations everyday to some of the top universities in the country.

What happened next...

It was during that time I founded TEDxClapham, an offshoot of TED talks and helped the speakers prepare for their talks on the big stage. Some of those talks went on to change legislation in the UK, raise finance and lobby the United Nations. Others have been seen by millions of people across the world. That was when I realised the true power of writing and delivering a talk that has the potential to inspire change.

Where I differ from most public speaking coaches, is that I care just as much about WHAT you say as I do how you say it. When a speaker walks on stage knowing that what they are about to say is world class, it changes everything, from the way they walk on stage to the impact the speech has long after they’ve given it.

Since then I’ve been coaching business leaders, entrepreneurs, athletes and academics to create and deliver presentations on some of the biggest stages in the world.
