EMILY EDGELEY | PUBLIC SPEAKING COACH

Helping people in Tech give more interesting talks and actually enjoy it!

DISCOVER

THE POWER

OF STORYTELLING

AS AN INDIVIDUAL, DO YOU WANT TO…

Learn one thing at a time,
at your own pace?

Master all the fundamentals
along with others?

Accelerate your transformation
with tailored support?

DO YOU WORK FOR A COMPANY THAT…

Wants some bite-sized learning
for a group of people?

Wants an ongoing learning
experience for a group?

Let me tell you a bit about my background, so you can understand why what I do is SO important to me.

After studying Pure Maths and Cyber Security at Uni and also not really loving the limelight, I totally struggled presenting at the start of my career. I was great with numbers and analysing things, but put me in front of an audience and ask me to present and I would crumble. 

I knew I had two options – either run from my fear, or face it head on.

However, I knew I couldn’t actually live a life trying to avoid any type of public speaking. 

So, I spent years learning and practising the art of public speaking and not only found my confidence, but an ability to engage and influence people as well. I then distilled, demystified and decoded what I learnt and started sharing it, so others could benefit from it too.

I now teach people (primarily in Tech) how to give more interesting talks, magnify their influence and get excited about presenting. 

To date I’ve helped more than 1000+ people across 55+ group sessions (either in-person or online). I’ve coached 95+ people privately and I’ve formally supported first time and experienced speakers across 6 Conferences.

Being able to do this for a job is awesome and it fills me with joy, every single day! 

If public speaking is something you struggle with, know that it’s not a skill you have to be born with, it’s something you can absolutely take control of and become good at. If you’d like to improve, please let me know how I can help!

UP-LEVEL YOUR PUBLIC SPEAKING WITH REGULAR TIPS & INSPIRATION FROM ME EVERY MONTH. 

What My Clients Say …

If public speaking is important to you (and really it is to everyone!) you should get her 1:1s.

Emily really focuses on you as a person, on your goals and where you are and takes you to the next level.

It really made a difference for me.

Mario

Private Coaching

My presentation went from very factual and instructive to engaging and story driven.

The Feedback I’ve received has been awesome with lots of people getting the help they need and the business getting a boost.

I can honestly say Emily exceeded my expectations!

Jason

Private Coaching

Emily is a wonderful speaking coach. I had the great fortune of her guidance and took the stage with a confidence and assuredness I had never thought possible.

I’m excited to have these new skills and to look forward to speaking opportunities – who would have thought!

Antony

Private Coaching

Emily is an amazing coach. The most valuable part of her coaching was that she taught me to use my strengths during my talk.

My confidence and ability to express my passion in a way that is relevant for my audience are my biggest transformations.

I can truly say “I am not scared or intimidated” anymore.

Tanvi

Conference Coaching

The Public Speaking Coaching by Emily has totally transformed the way I now create presentations and how to present in front of an audience.

This has boosted my confidence beyond what I thought was possible.

Jason

Conference Coaching

Emily is a delight to work with!

Her sessions were some of the best professional development experiences I’ve ever had in my career and I’m a much more confident public speaker because of her.

I highly recommend her services to anyone and everyone!

Olivia

Conference Coaching

The team loved the fresh way Emily taught us to do a presentation – it wasn’t just the same old powerpoint pack that was walked through.

The focus on business value in our presentations (and not just deep diving into the technology) has been greater after her session.

Pranita

Engaging Presenter Webinar

Emily is full of energy and very passionate about storytelling. Her pace is easy to follow, well-structured and the half-day session is engaging.

Our leadership team has definitely benefited from the practical storytelling workshop and we are now more confident articulating our vision and bringing our people on the journey with us.

Ilia

Storytelling Workshop

The art of storytelling is a critical skill for effective stakeholder engagement.

I asked Emily to weave her magic and she received a unanimous vote of thanks for her tips on structuring and delivering stories that influence or change behaviour.

If you want to improve the adoption rate of your reports and recommendations, speak to Emily.

  • So Zara has these kids sunnies. 🕶

When we first got them for her she was a baby and she wouldn’t wear them (scroll for a photo we took when they first arrived, before she ripped them off again). 

However now she loves wearing them.

So much so that the other day one of my neighbours told me (laughing) that she’d been wearing them inside (in our apartment corridor) and pulled them down her nose to take a look at him, not saying a word. Then walked off. 🤪

Such a funny one! 😅😎

  • Harley-Boo waiting patiently for some chicken to fall his way as I eat my lunch 😅

Now that I’m back to work, I’m loving having a working lunch out whilst the weather is so nice. 

Although I haven’t really been mixing it up as much, I seem to be a creature of habit and stick to the same places.

It’s a chicken super salad for me today 😋 need more protein so going off the vegetarian tangent a bit.

You back to work this week?

  • I’ve decided I’m going to try and either have breakfast or lunch out during the week.

Mostly so I get an added dose of inspiration that generally comes from a change of scenery✨

I have no more client meetings for 2021, so it’s all about getting out the final speaker assessments for my private coaching clients today. 

Do you find you’re extra creative when you work from a cafe?

  • Off to meet a Corporate Tech Giant to chat about how I can help them in 2022 🙌

Time to crack out my corporate wardrobe. It required a quick change  out of my comfy leggings and T-shirt, into jeans, boots and my pink power jacket. 👩🏼‍🎤👑💥

We clearly haven’t quite got to summer here in Melb 😅

  • I wanted to share a Harley update and it’s good news! 🥰🐶🥰

So after stabilising Harley late last week, the vets were able to do a more detailed ultrasound.

They found a foreign object in his tummy, that had punctured his bowel in two spots. This had caused the inflammation they saw on the X-ray which made them believe it was cancer!!

Whilst it was obviously really painful for him and the vets were a little embarrassed they completely misdiagnosed it, I was over the moon it was treatable!!

He’s had surgery and they identified that it was a chicken bone he’d eaten (off the side of the road the other day when on a walk). 

After a rocky few days of vomiting a LOT and not eating really for a week, he’s started to wag his tail again and eat - but the vets have restricted him to chicken of all things!! 🍗😅

Phew! So he fights to live another day.  So happy 😁💜

  • Harley’s cancer has come back again in his intestines and he’s gone downhill very quickly. He was fine Monday and now he’s at the vets in their care and they’re not sure if he’ll make it.

So for now, I’m trying to remind myself of the funnier times to distract myself from thinking the worst….. 🥺

When I left him this morning I asked them if it would be the last time I saw him. They said they’re not sure, so they let me have some time with him alone. 

I think I will get to see him again tonight but I don’t know if we’ll be taking him home or not.

If you have a dog (or any pet really) - give them an extra big hug, because you never know when it might be your last 🐶💜
