Brilliant Public Speaking in the UK: training from International Coach and Film and TV Professional.

Methodology

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 specialise in coaching people to excel themselves professionally and helping them live happier, confident and self-determined lives. I cover two key areas:

PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE
Public speaking, Interview coaching, presenting to groups, speaking well in meetings, acting rehearsals, presenting in front of a camera.

Over the course of twelve years I have coached people towards performing better in the corporate world and the entertainment industry. And I have been running a consultancy dedicated to this coaching and my unique methods since 2011, delivering 1:1 video coaching and bespoke in-person corporate communication workshops.

My personal development/wellbeing coaching work is aimed towards those suffering from symptoms of CPTSD, inner critic control and NPD abuse. I work with specific therapists in London delivering this specialised life coaching service.

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.”

R
Robin

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.”

P
Pei, Project Manager.

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.”

H
Hugh

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.

M
Mick

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.

G
Grateful Parent.

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!”

D
Deborah

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.”

K
Kent

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.

G
Gianmarco

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 ...

Interview with Pimmi

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you start your personal development? What motivated this choice?
Pimmi — I started my Personal Development Consultancy in 2011. Previous to that, I had been working in the film and television industry and worked a lot with performers. After this, I was running another business where public speaking was something I needed to do to promote the work I was doing. I realised that much of the work we did with actors, such as exercises and techniques in rehearsals and between shots, would be really useful to anyone looking to improve their communication when speaking in public, during meetings, or in interviews. So I adapted some of these techniques so that anyone could use them and merged them into self designed programs.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Describe your own understanding of "personal development" and what can it bring in the short and long-term?
Pimmi — Personal Development is to me all about growth, expanding your knowledge base and your emotional intelligence. I think of it as acquiring new tools of self awareness and growth in order to gain the best out of life and keep up to date with the way our world is evolving. It's all relative, and perhaps personal development is much more necessary in today's world than back in the day. There's an eagerness now to appear capable, successful and to stand out. Nowadays we are also inundated with information, especially digitally, and at work people are expected to know more and to be able totranslate that information quickly, also to a wider forum: gone are hierarchical boundaries when it comes to knowledge sharing. As people get promoted, they have to become socially savvier, presenting information to everyone, face to face, digitally, via audio conferencing, to large groups - this all presents massive challenges to people who haven't been trained to perform, who are growing up in a world that relies more and more onartificial social platforms in which to interact. And the situation is similarly challenging in social spheres, no less when it comes to dating.


In the short term, personal development programs provide skills that are highly valuable in people's professional and personal lives: skills that help peoplesocially integrate faster, perform better and produce more efficiently and effectively. In the longer term, they can help to develop a deeper emotional intelligence, enhanceself esteem, core confidence and self awareness, as well as an assurance of one's place in this world that has become so much more open, smaller and accessible. Personal Development helps people broaden their outlook too and can give a feeling of moving forward,ultimately helping an individual achieve greater career satisfaction and foster stronger social bonds.
QUESTION 03 | 08
What are some practical tips to help improve self-confidence?
Pimmi — I really believe the inner critic is a malady affecting the majority of people and it can be a huge contributor towards self-sabotaging and low self confidence. So I think engaging in exercises to reduce the inner critic, and eventually learning to silence it and change the inner dialogue, helps incredibly in recognising one's strengths, skills, capabilities and self-worth. A balanced self-confidence can grow well in that internal environment.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Do you think a teacher can learn from his students? Is there a lesson where you have experienced this?
Pimmi — I often learn things from my students. Coaching is a great way to share insight, because discussion is so often part of a session, and many of my clients have a perspective on the world that can really inform me too. I have worked with people from all kinds of industries, from finance to steel, entertainment to politics - and their experience is always for broadening my mind.


Not forgetting to mention, Coaching is shaped by both client and coach discovering doors of awareness that the client did not realise were already there within them. That old cliché about the answers already being there is true. A coach often unlocks that awareness in a client, and if you remain open to that process, it can offer a valuable insight into different issues and ultimately help you refine your own service.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What personalities do you admire; who represents personal and professional success in your opinion?
Pimmi — I think personal and professional success are inter-related. What people do with their professional success - particularly to help others - makes an impact on me and denotes their overall success to me.


As a former documentary maker, I was once fortunate to interview the Dalai Lama, a long time role model for me in terms of his outlook on life and humanity. He describes himself as a simple monk, but he has an extraordinary mind and a brilliant humour. I admire how devoted he is to the Tibetan people and to fighting for Tibetan autonomy from China.


I am also inspired by people who have used either their experiences of personal struggle, or the professional success and public platform they have achieved for greater causes, people like: Tarana Burke and Malala Yousafzai, on gender equality and women and girls' rights, or former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his wife Tracey, who used their wealth to open massiveanimal sanctuaries for abused animals and animals saved from slaughterhouses.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What are your hobbies and what benefits do they have on your motivation?
Pimmi — Photography; animal welfare; meditation; literature: fiction, social and current affairs blogs; travel; world film; collecting first edition books and music; long walks.


I enjoy past times that keep me in touch with new ideas in the world, exploring my own creativity and those that have a therapeutic element, all of which keep me inspired, positive and motivated.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Who are your classes for, specifically? Is this domain open to all?
Pimmi — They are really open to all. But people who benefit are normally committed to investing in their own personal development and in moving forward in their lives. They need to feel comfortable having online training, as this is how I deliver my coaching sessions.
QUESTION 08 | 08
Being a Superprof requires some adaptability. Tell us about your methods in adapting to different individuals.
Pimmi — Each client I work with has a different background and an individual skillset and capabilities, so naturally my approach has to be adaptive to their needs. I focus on their natural strengths and their personal aims to tailor the training so that it would best serve them. This ensures it is targeted and relevant and also keeps things interesting for me too.
