Bob’s expertise in public speaking and being able to convey those skills to others is fantastic. Bob has helped me on a number of occasions with preparing for speeches and it’s been invaluable. I genuinely can’t recommend Bob highly enough!

Jillian did an amazing job in linking her personal story and experience to the business context that those people encounter on a daily basis. The power of Jillian’s approach is that it can talk to any culture, background and experience.

I engaged Bob to provided me some support and guidance for one very important presentation that I was delivering the the US. Because of his support and guidance I had the confidence to accept an invitation to speak in Dubai for the same organisation! Bob made it happen for me and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is doing a presentation.

Jillian was invited by the Women in the Bank network at the Bank of England, to deliver a motivational and inspirational speech about how to get ‘the best version of you’. Jillian’s talk was engaging, captivating and the feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive. Jillian used her own moving story to provide advice on how we can all achieve what we were born to do, using some simple steps, starting with realising what your strengths are and overcoming perceived weaknesses. She spoke in a very relateable manner for the audience and everyone was able to take something away from the talk”
