Learning from Theo was a life-changing experience. He makes you feel so relaxed, creating a very easy environment to learn in. I now feel I have more authority and integrity in every social and professional situation.

“I would definitely recommend classes with Theo! He tailored the lessons to my needs, keeping a good balance between pronunciation and intonation exercises. The atmosphere was relaxed which enabled me to ask any silly questions without feeling judged. Theo helped me not only to soften my accent but also showed me some really interesting techniques that allowed me to improve my presentation skills.”

“Theo – thank you so much! It's been an absolute pleasure to work with you. I saw vast improvements in my effectiveness as a speaker from day 1 and am very proud of what we've achieved over the last couple of months. In fact, the transformation has been so remarkable, I'd rather keep you secret ;)”

I first came to train with Theo in the hope of perfecting my British accent and refreshing my overall communication skills which were on the wane due to little use.
It's my firm belief that businesspeople in particular or anyone whose job makes great demands on their speaking skills would benefit immeasurably from Theo's training.
I had such a wonderful time whilst training with Theo. He is inspiring in every sense of the word.

Theo continues to provide evolving solutions to my public speaking challenges. So far he's enabled me to confidently engage large audiences of business leaders as well as high value executive meetings within my own organisation. As well as introducing him to colleagues and their teams, I continue to mine Theo for ever more valuable insights!

“My experience has been nothing less than fully rewarding, challenging and lots of fun. The lessons were filled with new, mind-opening concepts concerning the English language which I could practice with the help of a wonderful teacher, Theo. He helped me let go of taboos and misconceptions, making me realize that every one of us can improve greatly.”

L
Laura

What attracted me to Theo is not only his public speaking skills training but also that he could help with my accent - my strong foreign accent made me self-conscious and was knocking my confidence down when speaking in public.
Theo is brilliant at putting me at ease - working with him is always fun. I no longer avoid presentations or dread pitches - in fact, I view them as an opportunity to practice my (newly acquired) skills.
