Hi, I'm Olivia Mitchell

I help introverts become confident and engaging speakers

Most public speaking advice is “one-size fits all”.

And most of it is written by extroverts. That means it doesn’t always work for those of us who are introverts.

15 years ago, I became a public speaking coach – by accident.

As an introvert, I’ve developed approaches to public speaking that work for introverts.

I work with fellow introverts, helping them develop their confidence, their presentations and deliver their message to the world. 

I have two gifts for you, depending on what you are most interested in. Of course you can download both.

If fear of public speaking is your issue…

If you’d like help planning your talk…
