Watch a snippet of Elliot in action at Real Networking Egham in October 2018

 

Annik Petrou started Speaker Express after she kept feeling stuck with no confidence and frightened to speak up about her ideas because they might sound ‘silly’ to others. Annik has delivered training to hundreds of entrepreneurs and knows how to make you FALL IN LOVE with pitching & speaking. Companies she worked with got highly desired investment, were accepted on accelerator programmes, won pitching competitions or went on to speak on TEDx stages. Her clients include technology start-ups, high-end corporates and the recently funded business voted ‘Best Dragon’s Den Pitch Ever’.

Elliot Kay is a series entrepreneur who has built three successful businesses. He has a unique knowledge of what makes a great stage presence AND how to utilise that to build a profitable business. At Speaker Express, Elliot helps stretch speakers to reach their full potential. He spends most of his time as a business mentor, working with businesses to grow them strategically. Speaking is a big part of his marketing strategy; he has accumulated 6,000 hours of stage time speaking globally to audiences across Europe, Africa, US, and the Middle East, and he brings that expertise and experience to his training sessions.

 

What others say about Speaker Express training:

‘If you have a BUSINESS it’s a must for you to be able to speak from stage. You will develop material that you can use for your speaking engagements and experience what it is like to embody being an incredible speaker. As a result of that I progressed with my speaking in a short amount of time.’ – Marina M., Effortless Living

‘The euphoria you feel after speaking is directly proportionate to the fear you felt before.’ – Colin Firth, Actor

‘Brilliantly executed with passion, love and professionalism. I left feeling empowered, inspired and loved. When I arrived I thought I was a good speaker as I have delivered a lot of small speeches and workshops, by the end of the day I self-actualised I am not. I felt safe in the environment they created, I dropped my inner critic and opened myself up to being more daring, vulnerable and to learn, grow and improve with everyone else who was there.’ – Tony S., Author, Speaker, Human Behaviour & Cognitive Specialist

‘I teach people to use their voice more effectively and have been to other speaker training communities in London that don’t match what Annik offers at Speaker Express. My recommendation will always go to Speaker Express as the place to train because of the opportunities, the community and the professional feedback to the speakers.’ – Emma C., Voice Coach & Impact Consultant

GUEST SPEAKER TOPIC: “How to make your website work for you”

We are so excited to have Deborah Boyle from Receptor-Your Web Doctors coming to talk us about how we can get the most out of our websites and the Dos and Don’ts when we want to increase awareness at our website.

Do you feel like your website has sunk without a trace? Does it feel like a bit of a waste of time or maybe you’ve never got any business from it? Maybe you need to think about why you have a website in the first place and is it for the right reasons? We will also work through how to get your site more visible, for free and with minimal effort.
