We'll show you how!

Up Front is all about giving you the tools and confidence to deliver brilliant presentations every time. We turn endurance into enjoyment !

We work with groups and individuals training and coaching them to deliver presentations with confidence, credibility and power. We embrace, harness and grow everything that makes you uniquely you, liberating people to be the very best version of themselves – no sausage making factory here! It’s not about perfection. We believe everyone has all they need to grow and change, we unleash the sometimes hidden potential.

All our training and coaching is designed with a balance of input and experiential learning packed with practical, tips, techniques & ideas. Learning & growth is achieved in 4 ways – input, modelling, experience & feedback. We draw on techniques from the worlds of theatre and NLP (neuro linguistic programming).

Our style is energetic and fun, with a serious intent using a range of approaches to develop self awareness, technique and competence. We know that people can be really stretched beyond their comfort zones when they feel relaxed and able to trust. The space we create is both high on challenge and support to maximize growth and learning.

If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you.
If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you!
