Would you like to speak clearer, present effectively and improve your career prospects? I offer a highly effective online personal coaching called ‘Brilliant Public Speaking’.
It is ideal for people looking to maximise their potential for effective communication when presenting to both small and larger groups. It is also ideal for professional learners of all backgrounds.
If you need to speak in meetings, conferences or address larger audiences to deliver speeches and lead presentations, then this is ideal. It is also perfect for those practicing for other types of public speaking: from wedding speeches to journalistic piece-to-cameras or rehearsing acting roles and auditions.
If you suffer from nerves, have low confidence in your performance ability, or believe you have poor vocal tone or a presenting style that lacks authenticity or impact; if you have problems memorising your script; a shaky voice; poor eye contact and tend to go blank when you start speaking, this training will address all of that and filter out the techniques that are not helping you, replacing them with those that are better suited to you. But this is more than just about teaching you new tricks: in my years of experience of working with various people from actors to business leaders to graduates, professional public speakers and trainers, I have designed a method that incorporates building emotional resilience and reducing the inner critic that holds most people back. I focus strongly on building core confidence because it is that which helps my clients deliver better performances and continue to develop.
The method is structured by me but is adapted to the different needs of my clients. Sometimes my clients might not be exactly sure which area of voice training they need to improve upon. So, I spend time listening acutely to their speech or performance and then work out what the key issues are as well as their natural strengths to help them develop a relaxed, personal style. From these, I can then base all kinds of self improvement that suits their needs, from: clear articulation, vocal projecting, developing a more attractive voice, how to sound more interesting and less flat, better body language, vocal strengthening, and understanding what gravitas is and how to embody it.
My coaching style is very involved and detail oriented, focused around self designed exercises, discussion, role play practice and useful techniques that my clients can continually practice outside of sessions. I take time to analyse my client's needs and the skills gaps they have, and I adapt each session to their development, so they always feel they are moving forward. I believe it's important to regularly check in with my client's thinking, to encourage them to determine the direction in which their training should go and for them to self assess their progress.
I conduct personal online video coaching sessions via Skype, Facetime, Zoom, Whatsapp etc. Each session is one hour and courses are usually four to eight hours.

I would strongly recommend Pimmi to anyone who is looking to gain greater confidence in public speaking. In a very short space of time I now feel much more confident when presenting to an audience. This is down to the way that Pimmi is able to work alongside me to structure my presentations. Now when I do the 'live' presentation I know that I have prepared something that the audience will be able to follow easily.”
There are coaches and then there are true coaches: Pimmi Pande is one of the latter. She has the technical knowledge and personal skills to help you achieve your vocal goals. Her coaching helped me achieve mine.”
Pimmi is an incredibly nurturing coach, whose encouragement and support helped me through a presentation I was dreading. She was skilful at picking up areas where I needed improvement and offering useful techniques in public speaking. I really appreciate the progress I have made and happily recommend Vocalise.”
Pimmi was immediately able to pick up on my areas of weakness, but also my strengths. In just a few sessions her sessions helped me to improve on the former and make the most of the latter. She has given me useful techniques to deploy when speaking publicly, and also provided the support and encouragement that I needed to grow more self-confident when doing so. I very much recommend Vocalise.
I would highly recommend Pimmi as a vocal coach. She is experienced and motivating and a pleasure to work with. From the very first session she put me at ease and has been inspirational since in helping me achieve my goals. Each session has been personally tailored to my needs, picking out just those things I need to focus on, while leading me in a step-by-step progression of improvement. She is never short of ideas to help overcome difficulties... communication difficulties I've encountered.
I am amazed how quickly you tuned into my son's personality and captured his interest. I am grateful that you put so much heart in the lessons, and that you made the lessons energetic and fun for a teenager. He has made tremendous progress with his speech, and that has had a positive influence on his self confidence and his social interactions. Had I known the process would be so much fun for him, I would have started years ago. Thanks again!”
The sessions I had with Pimmi enabled me to approach the Interviews with much more confidence and it gave me the tools I needed to do well. The role play helped to think about how to behave and answer in different situations and I was given some tough questions I didn't expect. Afterwards I definitely felt ready. I am so pleased the Interviews went smoothly and I did actually get the job as well! I warmly recommend Vocalise. I definitely learnt a lot.”
I was put at risk of redundancy. Due to my mature years and not having done an interview for 15 years I was very apprehensive. I had already had number of interviews with little success. Pimmi showed me several steps and processes which helped me address my barriers and develop simple strategies. She was understanding, very helpful and made me feel positive about my abilities. After just two sessions, I had another interview and was successful in securing a new position.
I would warmly recommend my Coach as she is really experienced and motivating. She could quickly understand my specific needs for public speaking, presentation and communication purposes, and come up with useful training exercises. I was very satisfied with the progress made during my training, and the improved quality of my performance as a public speaker at conferences and roundtables.
My Coach has reinforced my self esteem, working with my strengths ... pronunciation and public speaking are a couple of areas that we have worked extensively on with etraordinary success ...
