Want to influence people and get ahead in your industry? Then you need to be able to communicate effectively.

Are you a level 94 Presentation Ninja or a level 4 Pitching Peasant? Whatever your skill level, I can help you.

I’ve learnt how to engage audiences with writing, delivery and improvisation. Simplicity is vital – I won’t use ten words when one will do, and I demonstrate EVERYTHING. Need to level up your writing skills? We’ll nail that. How to achieve confidence? I’m on it. Improvising and handling tricky questions? Got it covered.

I learnt these skills from doing years of stand-up comedy, so I can teach you really effective techniques in a way that’s actually fun. My style provides the best learning environment for introverted, technical people who mistakenly assume that communicating effectively is something they’re simply not good at.

What My Lucky Students Have Said

Jack Griffin – World Art Manager, Criterion Games, Electronic Arts

Jon was an excellent coach and mentor, and his depth of experience in public speaking was clearly evident. His feedback was always precise and extremely useful, and I was able to put it into practice successfully in a presentation shortly after for visiting students. Jon’s attention to detail, positive approach, and light-hearted and approachable manner were very motivating and instilled confidence in myself and other members of the team.

If you want to improve your communications game – whether you want to get better at presenting, public speaking, networking or selling, Jon is your man. I have learned so much from Jon over the past couple of months and he has transformed my public speaking. An added bonus is that working with Jon doesn’t feel like work at all, in fact it’s a lot of fun. So if you have the opportunity to work with Jon, then I suggest that you do so, immediately.

You can’t fault Jon; his unusual approach to tailor sessions to individual’s requirements makes you come away both satisfied and wanting more! The best public speaking and confidence coach I’ve had the pleasure to meet. Highly recommended.

Pete Ellis – Level Designer at Guerrilla Cambridge

Jon is a superb communication coach. His approach to teaching is fresh, exciting, interactive, and above all else, memorable.

I went to Jon to get help with confidence during presentations and public speaking, and this is exactly what he delivered. I have attended so many sessions that teach you what to put in your presentation, but none of how to act and deliver them. This is exactly what Jon taught us, effortlessly filling a gap in the market with his knowledge and expertise in public speaking and stand-up comedy.

Best of all, he got us to actively try out the techniques he taught, including how to deal with interruptions or setbacks. This experience in this session was invaluable and has given me extra confidence to deal with public speaking that I have already used since.

I highly recommend Jon as a Communication coach for anyone looking to improve their presentations skills, delivery and public speaking.

Jon whipped us all up into a presenting frenzy with his enthusiasm and ideas – I hope to apply everything I learned in the coming months.
