Performance Coaching & Public Speaking Areas of Focus

Professional one-on-one lessons with award-winning Actor & Performance Coach, Philip Clarke

Communicating with your audience

No two audiences are alike. You will learn how to understand your audience and the appropriate language to use when communicating with your audience.

Dealing with the nerves

Nervousness can stop us in our tracks. You will learn how to use those nerves to achieve a great performance and how to accept them as part of who you are and redirect them back to your audience.

Stage presence

You can learn to occupy your performance space by building your confidence in your craft. How you manipulate your body on stage to capture the attention of the audience is power. Whether it is a speech or song performance, you can stand tall and strong in your space and more importantly in the memory of the audience.

Making a memorable performance

Every performer wants to leave an audience wanting more. When one has a connection with an audience, the relationship develops and it is that relationship that I will help you to cultivate. It is a process that involves first connecting with yourself: body, mind and spirit.

Know yourself and then unleash on your audience with intent, technique and energy.

Finding your personal style

Your personality is the most important tool to engaging your audience. You will gain the ability to channel the best parts of yourself into the delivery.

Executing physical expressions on stage

Your personality is the most important tool to engaging your audience. The ability to channel the best parts of yourself puts you in good stead in making a good delivery.
