The Challenge of Breathlessness

Breathlessness was the biggest delivery challenge early in my speaking journey - before turning professional.

Best tip I was ever given to remedy…

Tip your chin down, relax the shoulders.

Straightens the airway.

Engages diaphragm.

Firm foundation for the voice.

May not feel like a deep breath, but it is.


For years, ran this drill in the minutes prior to stepping up on stage.

Made such a difference…

 In 2019 I had the pleasure of working with Simon while pitching at the final of The Venture, the most important competition for social entrepreneurs. Simon not only helped me to deliver a perfect pitch to an audience of 2,500 people, he also helped me to improve my body language and storytelling abilities.

I am very certain that I won that contest thanks to Simon's help."
