Unless agreed with your coach, 1-2-1 coaching takes place via skype. This allows us to work across the globe and allows us to help more speakers. We also have coaches who host clients at their premises in London – Notting Hill and Stoke Newington (subject to availability). If that’s of particular interest to you, please let us know when you book.
Once you book and give us your details, we’ll assign the best coach for you based on their availability and your background. If you know our team and would like to request a specific coach, please mention it upon booking.
Booking your sessions
Once you’re booked in, we’ll put you in touch with your coach to arrange your 5 x 1-2-1 sessions. You can do this in whatever timeframe works for you, but we’d recommend you take 2 months to complete the whole coaching package, including the online course.
Please book as far in advance as possible and allow approx. 2 weeks between enrolling and booking your first session, so that you can start the online content.
Your TED Coaching Package:
As mentioned above, the recommended package is the following, although you can tailor elements to suit your needs. Please discuss this with your coach on your first call:
- TED Coaching session 1: Discovering your idea worth spreading (30min call)
- TED Coaching session 2 & 3: Shaping your talk journey (2 x 30 min calls or 1 x 60 min)
- TED Coaching session 4: Confidence, power & impact (30mins)
- TED Coaching session 5: We’ll watch, analyse and give you detailed recommendations on your talk of up to 20 minutes (60 mins)
Making the most of your TED Coaching
To make the most of your time with your coach we recommend you come to your sessions highly prepared and ready for action. With all good public speaking we recommend you ‘jump into the action’ rather than clearing your throat and the same goes for your coaching time. There is no need to do too much introducing or explaining, just get straight in there.
This will ensure you get the very best value for money.
Do I have to skype?
Our 1-2-1 sessions are typically delivered over Skype, but if you can’t or don’t want to use Skype, we can use another platform, or you can dial your coach’s phone number. Ideally you will have a webcam link so your coach can see you and the physical aspects of your communication.
Further 1-2-1 sessions
If you find that your 5 coaching sessions aren’t enough, you can book follow-up sessions at a discount price. Please let your coach know if this is your situation.
