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…
