“Firstly I would like to thank all of the team at Project Charisma for helping me find the confidence that I thought I had lost.
Since 2020 I have struggled with self-doubt and believing that I am good enough at what I do. As lockdown eased, I was approached to speak for the local stroke association and discuss the benefits of exercise and wellness. I would have been happy doing this and been very excited at the opportunity the previous year. Not now! The fear crept through me at the thought of standing up discussing my specialism in front of other practitioners and patients.
I realised I needed some extra training and to find techniques to help me overcome this newfound fear. I was not allowing fear to stop my progression. I researched public speaking and found that Project Charisma was offering a workshop not far from me. I knew I wouldn’t regret the decision, so I instantly booked the programm.
I woke up the morning of the workshop and felt hesitant. As I walked through the doors of the building, Edward, one of the trainers, greeted me. He was friendly and instantly made me feel at ease as he walked me to the main room, where people sat talking and getting to know each other.”
“At the beginning of the workshop, I was dreading delivering my final speech to the group as I didn’t really believe what I was saying. With the inspirational support from the trainers, wise words and digging deep within myself, I changed the whole speech last minute.
Thanks to Project Charisma, as the Managing Director of my business, I feel confident in delivering talks, inspirational talks and workshops of my own within my industry. I now pitch to commissioners such as public health England, the local councils and other businesses and organisations.
Within the past few months, I have been commissioned by two organisations. I believe this is all down to my experience and knowledge learned through the training with Project Charisma.
Thank you to Project Charisma, I have found my inner voice and skills to stand out. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend anyone with any doubt to book on and find their voice.”

“Ed is an excellent public speaking/presenting coach. He made what can be a scary topic for many, very accessible. The workshop was professionally conducted, tailored to individual needs, and most enjoyable.
Having worked as an agent representing high-profile celebratory public speakers, and having delivered numerous paid keynotes myself, I have encountered and attended many training sessions over the last twenty years. The training with Ed was every bit as good as the very best training I have witnessed. Ed is an asset to the university, and many professors and PGR students could benefit from this training.”

“It was really informative and useful, the activities made me think a lot about how to improve my general wellbeing as well as specifically my confidence and self-esteem. I learned a lot about myself – and had good time too!
Eds’ professionalism and kindness was outstanding and made me feel comfortable enough to not only take part but enjoy.”
Nela Blinkhorn, Student’s Union VP at UCEN
[Ed’s] ability to engage with the class was first rate. His classes were very enjoyable and enlightening. He ensured the students all interacted & had a very good command of the room.
The students learnt a great deal and many said his session was their favourite. His enthusiasm was infectious and the students fedback that their confidence to speak in public had increased.
