Our Coaching Programme: THINK. WRITE. SPEAK.

After many years working with leaders on their speeches, we've distilled our experience into a comprehensive coaching programme. We offer two bespoke versions of this programme: one for individual clients, and another for small groups.

Individual Coaching

Over three face-to-face sessions – either in person or on Zoom – we'll guide you through the whole process of writing a speech. We'll support you on the exciting journey from first thoughts to final delivery.

By the end of our time together, you’ll be ready to confidently deliver your carefully crafted speech on the big day.

Small Group Coaching

We've adapted our individual coaching programme for groups of up to four people. Over three sessions, each participant gets the chance to work on their own short speech.

Clients who've experienced group coaching tell us it's made a real difference to the quality of speeches and presentations across their organisation.

What people are saying...

Jon Restell, CEO Managers in Partnership (MiP)

"Working with you both helped me to unlock my message. Your collaborative approach and skill invited me to think more carefully about what I wanted to say and what I wanted people to do. That is more strategy than speechwriting! Then the truly fun bit was turning the message into the images and words that might make people look up from their phones. I'd recommend you to any leader who wants to make a mark."

Professor Dame Clare Gerada OBE, formerly Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP)

"Thank you for helping me to find my voice and tell my story."

Ian Merrill, CEO Tempo

"In my role as Chief Exec of a growing organisation, with an increasing public profile, I recognised that improving my public speaking was really important – I wanted to be better at getting our message across. Working with Martha and Martin helped me do just that."

Poppy Jaman OBE, CEO City Mental Health Alliance (CMHA)

"What I love about working with Martha and Martin is that the speeches are my words, my narrative, my tone of voice – so authentic. Writing using their coaching approach and trusting in the process is part of the journey. I have grown in my thinking, developed my skills in talking simply and effectively. Each speech has given me content that I have been able to use in multiple ways for different audiences."
