"Rose Sawkins helped us enormously with our speeches;
over the course of several meetings she transformed
a daunting prospect into an enjoyable one.'

- Stephen & Christophe. London 2015

'A PEACH OF A SPEECH' was conceived last Winter when, after 10 years of my having trained and coached public speaking skills (for commercial, public and charity sectors in the main), some friends, a gay couple who were about to marry at long last, asked me if I might help them in the writing and delivery of their speeches . . . or, as it turned out, in one 'peach' of a joint speech!

The great adventure of co-creating this rich, most amusing - and moving - speech; the journey through these two men's lives, both as individuals and as a couple - not to mention as public speakers - was both welcome challenge and a treat. I got to see how much of a surprise, how much joy - and of course the tears - that the time and care invested in such a special offering brought to a wedding party. 'The boys' speech!' - this was a big talking point when the eating began.

Seeing the change in a person who wishes to enjoy, rather than fear, public speaking is something from which I derive genuine professional satisfaction. I seek to inspire in each client a desire to give life to both the composition and delivery of their speech (and/or reading) - and provide the tools to give each word depth, zest and real sparkle! Plus, of course, I want him or her to offer us great stories too!

To keep my own 'performance self' lively, I still also freelance as actor-reader in both commercial and therapeutic contexts (some of which is work in association with speech & language therapists). Since many people wish to overcome a huge and very common fear of speaking, including that of having to give a reading off-the-page at an event, and often also struggle even with the sound of their own voice, this work is a useful 'add-on' in a public speaking & speech writing coaching service.
