About Jayne


Jayne is one of the most sought-after trainers in the business, whether she’s delivering one-to-one speaker training for a corporate CEO or celebrity athlete; preparing lawyers for a webinar; helping pitch teams to win new business or working with an individual on confidence/personal impact issues. Jayne’s training draws on a unique mix of experience and expertise – live continuity announcing on BBC television; reporting/presenting business news on BBC World television; fronting corporate programmes for blue chip companies; facilitating large and complex live events, and writing for newspapers and magazines. She started her working life in corporate and financial PR and spent several years in-house, managing a law firm’s corporate communications. Her BBC Television series on Mexico was nominated for a BAFTA; voice-over credits include Sony and Channel 4 and she has written for Conde Nast Traveller and Good Housekeeping. She learned journalism at the LCP, has an acting diploma from the Royal Academy of Music and a Modern Languages degree from Cambridge. What makes Jayne’s training particularly valuable is that she continues to work regularly as a voice over artist, presenter and corporate Comms consultant, alongside her training work. Add to that Jayne’s exceptional people skills and you’ll see why clients find her to be “inspirational”, “invaluable”, “empathetic” and “effective”.

Training Theory


Jayne’s courses are for anyone who wants to improve their communication/presentation skills, and learn the techniques to be able to perform to their very best ability (even those who are not naturally gifted). Unusually, rather than offering a one-size-fits-all approach, Jayne’s courses focus on the individual strengths and weaknesses of the participants and are tailored precisely to their objectives, whether they are looking for guidance for themselves or so that they can better support their spokespeople. The aim is to give them the confidence to be in control of media/presentation situations. These might include radio, TV, print/online interviews; conferences; webinars; panel discussions; Q&As; new business pitches.

Specialisms


Jayne’s sessions take the form of hands-on, interactive workshops built around realistic exercises (filmed/recorded and reviewed). Jayne’s approach is highly practical and logical, based on the 25 years she has spent in front of a camera, a microphone and an audience. Being an effective communicator is a skill (rather than a gift) which can be acquired – Jayne gives attendees a range of techniques, strategies and advice which lead to immediate improvements, tangible results, in the training room. And all of this in a lively, constructive and supportive atmosphere with some fun along the way. While each course has a particular focus, in line with the needs of the attendees, there are topics which are covered in all sessions, including: * Efficient preparation * Message planning * Structuring content for maximum impact * Using memorable language * Developing a personal ‘brand’ * Confidence – dispel the myths * Rehearsal techniques * Performance tips * Dealing with nerves * Being in control. Post-course support Jayne provides a 6-month programme of post-training support to all attendees, to encourage their on-going engagement and commitment. This involves email communication to check on progress; support for subsequent presenting/speaking opportunities; sharing examples (articles, clips) of good/bad practice. Attendees are thus able to consolidate and develop what was learned in the training room. Jayne is a skilful, intuitive and imaginative trainer who derives huge satisfaction from transforming the way people communicate. People with all levels of experience and all levels of seniority leave Jayne’s training with increased confidence, new skills and a smile.
