When speaking clearly is essential, you need 1-on-1 Leadership Coaching

When speaking clearly is essential, you need 1-on-1 Leadership Coaching

If you have a unique medical issue, you don’t see a regular doctor, you see a specialist in the field you need help with.


It’s the same when you need to get your message across with crystal clear clarity in work situations. When you work with David Julian Price, he coaches you using his top-shelf speaking system called Hot-Seat Coaching.


Just as a specialist goes straight to the nub of the issues that need improving very quickly, so does the Hot-Seat Coaching method. It’s where the person being coached receives immediate feedback so improvements can be remedied on the spot. This style of coaching has an immediate and positive impact.

It’s fast. It’s direct. It’s unique.

This is why executives and leaders choose 1-on-1 Hot-Seat Coaching. The SO WHAT of this technique means that when you go back to your workplace with your newfound presentation skills, you’ll speak more clearly and with more clarity, and start to get noticed more when you speak.

You may not realise you need extra help in presentation skills training as you think you’re already speaking clearly enough so your message is understood.

However, if your opinion is sometimes overlooked in the workplace, this could mean you need to raise the bar on the effectiveness of your communication. With high-level presentation skills training, you’ll have more chance of being heard, prompting more questions and increasing engagement.

An experienced leadership coach not only knows the rules, they also know when and how to bend the rules to suit each person.

If you’d like your opinion to come across with more clarity around the meeting table or other work situations, then 1-on-1 leadership hot-seat coaching could be what you need to notch up your skills.

Understanding WHY changes are made reinforces your clarity when you speak

The difference when you work with David, is that he will help you to understand WHY you change certain things in your presentation. Once you understand the WHY of the changes, your confidence grows, because your understanding of high-level presentation skills broadens.

And not only that, you’ll understand the WHY immediately as feedback is given on-the-spot. The process is repeated throughout the session, going at the pace to suit your learning style. Your confidence grows as you build your competency levels of speaking to persuade and influence.

Coaching done this way solidifies and cements the learnings more quickly, which means the effectiveness of your presentation techniques sky-rocket.

David demonstrates. You practice. David coaches.

Past clients have found that when they’re coached under pressure, is when the magic happens. Just as diamonds are made under pressure, David keeps asking you questions – he’s mining for your hidden data – and then it evolves. Your hidden gems appear, and they are polished until they shine, just like a diamond.

David will not push you further than he knows you can go. The skills from 35+ years as a speaking coach kick in to guide you to developing presentation skills that will stay with you forever.

Global process to speaking with gravitas

  • David starts by consciously looking at the whole presentation first.
  • He then chooses one specific thing to coach you on, where the need for presentation help is the most pressing. He begins by working on the easiest thing to change that will have an immediate impact. This also has the benefit of lifting your energy so you can see and feel the results immediately. This is important.
  • Then he goes deeper into developing presentation skills. What he chooses to work on next depends on these 3 things…
  • how he thinks you will take this advice
  • what he thinks your capacity is to embrace this change
  • how much he thinks you’ll understand what the changes mean

This is really important because the reality is that a small number of people are uncoachable – ask any coach of anything – golf, finance, swimming or speaking.


For example, if David wants to change the way you use your hands, but you’re also walking all over the place, then the walking is the bigger issue. This will be tackled first, and how to use the hands will be dealt with at a later time. Often creative presentation ideas will be suggested to suit your personality, to make your keynote presentation uniquely yours.


This takes your presentation to a higher skill level as your physiology will be in synch with your voice and message. This builds congruency. This is crucial if you want to influence or persuade.

All 3 parts of the speaking equation will be in harmony, enhancing your ability of speaking clearly to your audience.

Areas that can be improved vary. Specific coaching is tailored for your needs…


    • Help on speech structure so your message lands
    • When to build in pause
    • When and how to vary the pace to ensure you have a good presentation
    • When and how to vary the volume for effect
    • Advanced non-verbal (body language) techniques that support your message

As a seasoned professional speaking coach of 35+ years, David knows what pace you can handle. He will ease you out of your comfort zone, notch it up a level, get you to practice and repeat, until you achieve the outcomes you’re looking for.


1-on-1 hot-seat coaching is recommended when you need an urgent result. Alternatively you can benefit in a group setting where you learn from watching as well as doing.


Even if you’re already an accomplished speaker with plenty of experience, David extracts even more out of you to become even better. Fast-paced, interactive, practical and insightful. I found I learnt things about how I was presenting which will help me be better in the future with a few subtle tweaks. If you’re unsure about a speaking course or mentor to pick, choose David Julian Price.

I can’t believe how David connected all modalities when coaching me. Sometimes when you’re so much in it, you can’t sit back and see it. I got so much clarity out of the coaching and really appreciated David passing on his extensive knowledge and experience. Brilliant, it was amazing.
