“The work I’ve done with Tom has helped me see myself more clearly as a business owner than any of the work I’ve done with other business coaches, and I’ve worked with quite a few business coaches in my journey.
Because business coaches always want to talk about tactics and strategy, Tom has helped me see my business with a new perspective that has been really powerful and I can tell it is going to be really pivotal!”

“Never has it been more important to get connected with your voice and on-camera presence. As a healthcare professional, coach, and serial entrepreneur, it’s critical to communicate in a crystal clear manner about my advice and offerings.
After a 15 minute call with Tom, he completely changed my approach to approaching my on-camera presence. Not only did he give me actionable strategies, but he also helped me come across as more human while connecting with my audience on a whole new level that fostered trust and engagement.”

“Public speaking, teaching, and presenting, go with my role, something that I have historically avoided due to faint-inducing anxiety that comes with standing in front of an audience.
In one session, Tom walked me through connecting with my own inner resources while practicing standing in the anxiety zone in front of a big audience. Tom’s approach and masterful skills helped me successfully confront a public speaking gig the following week.
I have no doubt that working with Tom will lead to a more authentic, empowered YOU in any performance capacity that comes your way.”
– Jed Schwalm M.Ed, BCBA, Executive Director Atlantic Behavior Services, Inc. (Maine, USA)
“Tom is a dynamic and vibrant coach who knows his craft and has a knack for feeling and seeing what someone is struggling with and then kindly, compassionately, and also directly, giving the guidance they need to help themselves move forward.
In working with Tom, I’ve had the joy of starting to realize, often in the hour or two just after a session, more clarity in how I need to be looking at the story I tell in my work, and how I can immediately apply new strategies to practice how I tell the story of my business (my brand) as I continue to lean into it.”
Ellen Wyoming DeLoy, Portland, Oregon (USA)
“Working with Tom was such a transformative experience. I was able to find parts of myself, of my personality, of my business, my way of communicating things, that I was not fully aware of. And they were inside, all along, of course, but I was blocking myself.
It’s one of the most amazing experiences that I’ve had and I am beyond excited that I had this opportunity, that I was able to work with Tom, to learn from Tom, to grow. And my business is thriving because I can fully be myself.”
Gracia Burns – Accent Coach (Austin, Texas USA)
“I’m a strategist and coach and all my work is online at the moment, and I wanted to really understand how to perform better to be able to engage better with my clients, to listen better, and really feel comfortable in my body and with my presence in my meetings.
Working with Tom through his one to one coaching, and also through his embodied process digital course, I was able to get even more comfortable in my body, and in front of the camera, and so now when I’m engaging with my clients, I’m even more confident and come across more professionally, I can hold the space better in the meeting, and we get better results and outcomes.”

“My name is Robin Rayner and I am a theatre, live event and digital content producer. I’ve known and worked with Tom for a number of years, and have always been a huge fan of his passion, his creativity, and his ability to nurture and inspire brilliant performances as a director.
Over the last year, I have done far less public speaking than I would do normally, spending much more time on zoom. Now that the theatre world and the world as a whole is opening back up again, I was becoming increasingly nervous about getting back to it.
So I decided to work with Tom to focus on some preparation for radio, and also some upcoming on screen interviews.
Tom focused on the key talking points that I wanted to bring up, getting to the heart of what I want to say and helped me structure my potential answers. We also focused on the importance of storytelling. A beginning, middle and end, not just listing facts or key talking points, which is what I was doing. These weren’t exactly scripted, but it meant that I could clarify what information was important, what I really wanted to talk about, and the rest of it could kind of be pushed to one side.”
“It just gave me the freedom to speak confidently and not second guess myself during these interviews.
He also gave me some great tips on how and where to focus my attention so that it was really specific. And also just to let go, and speak freely, coming from a place of honesty, which was much easier to do after I’d done all the preparation.
These sessions completely shifted and refocused my approach to not just public speaking, but also leadership, and leadership skills. It gave me much more confidence going into these interviews and also zoom meetings, production meetings since.
“The training that Tom offers I believe is crucial to developing skills that all successful business leaders, public speakers and performers need. We trust people that are passionate, that clearly know what they’re talking about and speak with confidence. These are all skills that Tom can really help with and support , he can does that in a really nurturing, supportive way.”
“When I first approached Tom about working with me, I was new to lecturing, and quite nervous about speaking in front of large audiences. I’ve suffered from performance anxiety, and new opportunities for public speaking usually filled me with incredible dread. I spoke to Tom about my career ambitions.
I work in academia, and lecturing is an important aspect of my job. In past experiences, my nerves left me with a mind that often blanked out when processing thoughts on stage. As a result, I have been unable to improvise, or move off script. I know that public speaking is a practice that will get better with experience, but working with Tom allowed me to build confidence in my own abilities. Conversing openly about my anxieties, and locating them through body work practices helped me to ground myself in preparation for speaking.
Tom provided me with valuable exercises and a program that helped me to focus on the lecture itself, without getting lost in the stress of performing. Our sessions remarkably changed the way I now approach public speaking. I have developed a valuable toolkit for understanding and processing my anxieties.
I would recommend this for lecturers, business managers, entrepreneurs, presenters – anyone who needs to speak in front of large audiences as part of their career. These sessions will help you focus your communication and perform to the best of your potential.
Tom was organised, professional, experienced, and importantly, he was empathetic. After my first lecture, I already feel more confident in my own abilities. Thank you!”
