I believe confidence is the ‘secret’ to being noticed - seen, appreciated and trusted. Confidence comes from being prepared and believing in your own capability to succeed.

I love coaching people to develop and refine their professional personas ready for promotions, boardroom presence, pitching exciting new ideas, and any other persuasive communication situation.

Pitches and Presentations with Powerful Impact

Do you have an important pitch, presentation or speech coming up?

Don't want to be boring?

Don't want to sound ridiculous either?

Pitches and Presentations with Powerful Impact coaching calls help you focus on what you want to achieve - the impact you want to have, the change you want to effect in your audience.

Before you open up Keynote or PowerPoint to create the slides, let's work out what you really want to say and the best way to share your message with that particular audience in that particular setting.

How will you command their attention?

How will you keep them engaged?

How will you make it easy for them to appreciate the value of your ideas and choose to change their thinking, their behaviour, their attitude?

Then we can look at what the slide deck and speech script will include, and how you can work impressively with the slides to deliver a compelling, credible and confident message.

More about Leanne

I'm an experienced corporate communications professional who helps people in business communicate with confidence.

I've built a successful career on influencing audiences in effective ways that add tangible value to existing brands and new commercial opportunities.

I've worked for iconic Queensland health and education services, in the public and private sectors, as well as with numerous start-ups, small businesses, and not-for-profits. Now I run Presence Communications – a training and services consultancy which

helps individuals and organisations communicate effectively and be noticed positively for their efforts, achievements, and innovations.

Clients enjoy working with me because I become familiar with their needs quickly and provide them with sound advice.

I'm proud of my track record of advising boards and senior executives on communication strategy.

I've been a faculty member at QUT and Griffith universities, guiding undergraduate students in their development of highly sought-after graduate attributes. I also ran ‘boot camps’ and ideas competitions for postgraduate students and postdoctoral academics at The University of Queensland and five other Australian universities, to help them engage effectively with internal and external audiences.

Right now I'm an active member of the Ipswich and Queensland innovation ecosystems, sharing my communication, training, and facilitation expertise with Fire Station 101 and emerging regional start-up and innovation hubs. I joined the board of the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2016 and I connect with many business and community people in this role.

I'm also interested in offering my services on Wiserr
