Have you ever stopped to consider just how effectively you communicate?
For our founder, Chris Edmondson, communication skills have become a passion (perhaps even an obsession) studied over a long and broad career.
Starting in construction engineering and mining (where the preferred communication method was often fists), Chris developed a fascination in how effectively (or how ineffectively) we communicate.
Moving into engineering research and finally high-technology sales, Chris started to notice patterns in how different styles of people communicate and interact. For his sales team, communication was often the determining factor between success and failure.
A chance introduction to a global public speaking organisation started Chris on a journey from uncomfortable nervous rookie, to an enthusiastic passionate speaker.
The next logical stage was to support others on that same journey and so Be A Great Speaker was born.
With clients from a wide range of sectors including corporate, SMB, public-sector and personal, Be A Great Speaker have helped countless others to overcome their barriers, improve their skills and communicate (in whatever way) more effectively.
Our style is often referred to as direct but above all else, down to earth.
We are firm believers in ‘practice what you preach’, and deliver keynotes, lectures and workshops on a variety of communications topics.
