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.

  • 🦆 🌱 I’ve started to spend a few quiet minutes sitting right by the river in the mornings.

Instead of simply walking by, I’ve been loving being still and taking in the sights, smells and sounds.

To say it’s been good for the soul is an understatement 🌱🦆💜☺️

I have to credit Zara (and these lockdowns) for helping me slow down and enjoy the little miracles of nature and life (even though ironically she actually struggles to sit still ha!) 🥰

Have you found you’ve connected more with nature since Covid hit?

  • I ran a 1.5hr workshop today for Tech Conference speakers.

One of the many tips I shared was the amazing benefits of deep breathing.

1. Calms your heart rate 💜
2. Reduces stress levels ☺️
3. Makes you think clearer ⭐️

Do you know how to do deep breathing?

We learn it instinctively when we’re babies but then some of us unlearn it as we go on in life.

It’s simply about breathing so that your belly expands when you breathe the air in and that your belly goes in when you breathe the air out.

Are you naturally a shallow or deep breather? 

I know I’m naturally a shallow breather, so this is a conscious effort for me! 😬

  • Friday reminder:

Being nervous when presenting in front of others is called being a human.

We need to stop feeling embarrassed and ashamed for being human.

Yes, you can want to minimise it. I totally get that. But seeing it as something to be ashamed about will only make the anxiety and nerves worse.

If you can learn to accept that it’s OK to have some level of nerves, you will actually find you don’t get as nervous.

It’s the pressure we out on ourselves to be perfect that creates more anxiety.

If this resonated, save this post so you can come back to it again when you need the reminder!

  • 🔢 How do you tell a story with numbers?

Earlier today I ran a Storytelling Webinar and that’s one of the things I shared with a Finance Dept. 

It’s probably not what you’d traditionally think of storytelling.

However…if you recognise that *finances* are a vehicle that gets people from Point A > Point B. 

That means instead of just presenting the numbers / figures, you should present the full story as a 3-Part Structure, with the people (Characters) included!

Eg
1. Point A - Who is facing what issue(s)?
2. Finances - What’s the current state?
3. Point B - What will this result in?

This then leads to the question, what needs to be done, if anything, in order to make sure you get to Point B as quickly as possible?

It’s a much more relatable way of sharing figures and it’s more memorable too. 🙌

🙋🏻‍♀️ Have you ever seen finances presented this way? What do you think!?

P.S. If you’re curious about getting a similar session run for your team / department, let me know!
