Testimonials

  • “Thanks so much.Your ‘tools and techniques’ really helped. They worked and thanks to you they worked very well. Anyone in a similar situation would be lucky to have your advice.”

    - S., Gave a reading at his father's funeral service

  • “I want to thank you for all the help, advice and encouragement you have given me. Last week I was offered a permanent job after four years of searching. I definitely approached the interviews differently. I am so pleased.”

    - J., Two sessions of job interview & presentation skills coaching

  • “Julie is nothing short of a miracle worker. She flicks a switch in your brain called ‘common sense’ which makes you both recognise and understand why all those irrational fears of public speaking amount to nothing more than wasted energy. Having artfully dodged conference speaking throughout my 15 year professional career, I called on Julie when I had finally run out of excuses and I could see it was holding me back. In just a short period of time she has transformed me from the person that never volunteered, to the person that actively seeks out speaking opportunities. Julie has single handedly had a massive impact on not only my self-belief, but also my future career.”

    - H., Four sessions of public speaking & confidence coaching

  • “Julie’s advice is not the usual common sense malarkey such as ‘be prepared’ and ‘just believe in yourself’. She gives you many more practical methods for enhancing your public speaking abilities.”

  • “I recommend Julie Howell’s public speaking workshop for anyone wanting to have a go at beating their demons. Brilliant!”

  • “Julie does not fail to impress as a motivational speaker or as a trainer. During her presentation she reminded us of why charisma and compassion are skills we all must learn to master. I’ve already passed on her details to a number of attendees who want to know her presentation secrets!

    - Giles Barker, Transport for London

  • “The time we spent in Julie’s workshop was probably the most valuable part of this working month. Julie’s relaxed style actively encouraged people to engage with her and the subject material. Her coaching rests on a solid foundation of practical experience gained over a dazzling career.”

    - Mike Bridger, Sovereign Associates

  • “I highly recommend Julie to anyone looking to invest in increasing their public speaking confidence. I learned a really valuable toolkit of techniques in Julie’s workshop that I can use to feel confident and calm when delivering workshops or presentations, in particular mindfulness and techniques for how to create your own ‘ritual’ prior to speaking.”

    - Abby Dennis, The Best of Watford

  • “I most enjoyed the interaction between Julie and the delegates and the sharing of our own individual challenges, which as a collective were all very similar. Julie reminds us of some of those simple tips and tricks we learnt years ago, but for some reason have forgotten how to access. Her workshop will leave you feeling motivated and inspired to get out there and speak.”

    - Carl Moorhouse

  • “I loved the public speaking workshop. It gave me exactly what I needed – an understanding of how to prepare for events, brilliant tips and a lot of clarity about how the mind works and how it can be set to succeed. I very much enjoyed seeing the potential of meditation as a way of focussing, overcoming hurdles and affirming belief. What I love about Julie is that she delivers knowledge in a very effective way that’s very easy to digest.”
