Michael has been instrumental in every talk or pitch I delivered over the past 18 months or so. Every time I start out with more confidence that I now know what I’m doing.

Lilia Tarawa
In our coaching sessions Michael helped me identify what I was going to say, how I was going to say it and how to condense my life story into the allotted 18 minutes. His immense knowledge of human psychology was vital to creating a talk people 'couldn't stop watching'.

Emily Blythe
Michael helped me to craft my talk to suit the knowledge base and interests of my audience. He made me aware of tone and speed of delivery and then worked with me consistently until I was confident on every aspect.

Isaac Giesen
Growing up with dyslexia I find it very hard to express what is in my head to on paper. Michael has been the big boss and great help in helping unravel the stories and ideas in my head.

William Trubridge
I was oblivious to what I had been communicating through body language, or to the subtleties of tempo and eye contact. Michael Philpott opened my eyes to all of these and more vital parts of speaking, and did so in the space of only a couple of sessions working together.
