We’ve worked with some of the world’s biggest presenters – Dermot O’Leary, Claudia Winkleman, Sir Bruce Forsyth, Graham Norton, Zoe Ball. And we’ve also worked with CEOs, politicians and professionals.
We’re experts in working with presenters and professionals of all backgrounds and levels of experience.
Our tailor-made coaching focuses on bringing out your personality and we’re also experts in making sure your script works for you.
So if you want to be the best and most effective you can be, we’d like to work with you.
We offer bespoke presentation coaching, public speaking coaching and keynote speech coaching, where you get to work with the Producers who have helped create some of the world’s most successful presenters.
A Producer is the person who is hired to ‘Produce’ the Presenter – writing their scripts, giving them direction and making them come across in the best way possible.
The Presenter Studio works directly with CEOS, professionals, politicians, sports stars and journalists to bring the discipline and creative approach of television to your world.
We produce talent for a living and have worked with everyone from international sports stars like Colin Jackson and Mark Webber to entertainments biggest presenters like Claudia Winkleman and Christine Bleakley to Executive Directors of major corporations like The Prudential, Virgin Media Business, The National Pharmacy Association, Red Bull and Porsche.
We know what makes a good presenter and how to make a presentation effective, professional and on-brand. Being ‘on-brand’ works in three ways – knowing who you are, and what the brand of your business is and how they both can work together.
Everything we do is bespoke to you, your business and the type of presentation you are giving. We can work with you on a one-off basis or we can hold regular coaching sessions.
We hold 1-on-1 or group sessions.
We can work with you on a 1-on-1 basis or also hold group sessions. And everything we do is bespoke to your needs
Many of our clients hire us on an on-going basis as their chosen presentation coach, whilst others may just need a quick fix before an important event. So whatever your requirements are we can design a bespoke presentation coaching programme for you.
Presentation training can do more harm than good if it’s not personal to you. There is no ‘applies to all’ rule about how to be a good speaker. It’s all about developing your own personal style, and this is what we are experts in.
For you to get your message across in an engaging way it needs to feel personal to you. Corporate presentations can often lack any sort of personality and that’s why your message fails to get the desired result. You need to remember that you are talking to a real person, and that you are simply having a conversation with your ‘audience’. So we’ll establish your own personal style that feels honest, genuine and unique to you - this is what we call your ‘personal brand’.
Without a good script it’s almost impossible to give a good presentation. We’ve written scripts for some of the biggest names in broadcasting and CEO’s in the corporate arena.
If you already have a script to work with then great, if not we can help. But what’s important is that we work with you ensure the shape, content and language of your script works for you.
Good presentation skills are about you being as natural and engaging as you can possibly be, but they need to work alongside the brand and personality of your company. Some presenters do this really well. If you look at the likes of Richard Branson and Virgin or Kelly Hoppen they are both the personification of their brand.
Your presentation needs to be memorable, effective and needs to deliver the desired impact.
We are real creatives here so we’ll come up with lots of different ideas to help ensure we create some fantastic work together. That means we’ll examine, explore and develop every aspect of your presentation – from your delivery, to your music, to your visuals.
We’ll also help you with memory techniques, how to tell a compelling story, and we will also advise you on hair and make-up as you need to make sure you visually come across how you intend to.
We can also come down to the event and help on the day where we can advise you on all the staging and technical aspects of your presentation – from where to walk on from, to what mic to use, to how you will use the stage and space itself. Working with you in the space itself can really help us to put the icing on the cake.
Our training is bespoke to you, your brand, your company and the event you are talking at – whether that’s an internal presentation, a media interview or perhaps corporate videos.

We’ve worked with some of the worlds biggest brands– Virgin, AOL, Prudential Plc, Red Bull, Porsche, ASOS...
Our tailor-made presentation coaching is based on over 20 years experience. And we are experts in bringing out your personality, making sure it is both personal to you and works with the brand you represent.
We’ve worked with TV’s biggest presenters - Dermot O’Leary, Claudia Winkleman, David Beckham, Zoe Ball, Raymond Blanc, Rylan Clarke, Christine Bleakley…so we know what makes a good speaker.
Many of the presenters we work with present TV’s biggest programmes and events, and some are BAFTA award winning - so if you want the best in presentation coaching we’d love to work with you.
Prudential Plc are one of our regular clients. We first went in to coach two Executive Directors who had to speak at their annual review in central London.
The first Executive Director was the host for the event – linking in and out of VTs and introducing each speaker - a key role in the overall success of the two day event.
First we worked with the client on their personal brand – how do they want to come across, and also what do they want to get out of the event? Then we explored the brand of the business, the purpose and tone of the event – how do Prudential want to come across, what is their overarching message and how can we capture this?
We then got to work on the script, which wasn’t written for their voice, and lacked any personality or tone. So we re-worked the script to make it feel personal, conversation and varied in pace, tone and message. It’s also important that each of their ‘appearances’ offered something new and their script was crucial to us achieving this.
And then there was a long list of other things to work on – entrance music, use of the stage, how to remember the script, visuals, microphone technique, and how to control nerves…
The second Executive Director had to give a ‘30 minute presentation’.
Again we worked with him on his personal brand and the brand of the business. He was new to the company so this was a great opportunity for him to make his mark. Then we discussed the point of their speech, and what they want the end result to be – to inspire, to educate, to simply inform?
A script had already been written for the client, but it was packed full of corporate jargon, words and content that when put on the spot the client didn’t even understand themselves.
So we went back to basics looking at every word in their script, re-writing sections and making sure it was in their own voice and felt like a conversation, rather than an impersonal didactic ‘lecture’. Then we start to explore some of our ideas on how they can be more impactful, from how they use the audience to music to is ’30 minutes’ really necessary We came up with a really clever ‘watercooler moment’ for the end of the speech. He was someone who wanted to get people talking, it was a tough one to pull off, but he did it!
We worked on their presentation skills, focusing on shape, tone, ‘message’, personality, pace – all the things that when combined help pull off a winning ‘performance’.
Both speakers had fantastic feedback from their peers, and as a result we continue to do more with Prudential Plc and their Directors.
