Carolyn Crawford has been a corporate presentation and communication skills coach for over 24 years, is a global online presentation skills trainer and an Amazon best-selling author of the unique graphic guide to business presenting, ‘Presenting To The Max’.
She has worked with almost 12,000 people across a vast array of industries and at all levels of those businesses, combining an elegantly simple toolkit with direct personal coaching to ensure business people are fully equipped for every presentation and can deliver them with authenticity and power.
Whether coaching CEOs to present their financial markets and industry conference presentations, teams for major pitches, or thousands of business people from all walks of life, it’s absolutely clear to Carolyn that (a) education, expertise and experience alone do not automatically endow one with the capacity to convey their thoughts effectively and (b) more importantly, noone need suffer with overwhelming presentation nerves. We all have the capacity to be fearless, to step up, to own the floor, to feel in control, to lead the audience, to imbue our presentations with full conviction and to change the world with our ideas.
