As the founder of Copywriter Pro, a successful copywriting business, Stephen wanted to start scaling his business and produce videos for social media but most importantly record a digital course that he could start selling.
Stephen is a confident and engaging speaker when it came to in-person presentations but the idea of speaking on camera just seemed a bit much!
Stephen approached us for some coaching and successfully completed the Breakthrough Virtual Speaker Programme, 1-1 coaching programme.
I went through some of his course modules and gave him specific feedback, Stephen then learned about the tech side of online presentation skills, took a deep dive into the confidence module and then spent the next few weeks learning and practising presentation skills on camera and receiving feedback and support from me every step of the way.
Stephen went on to record a 21 module copywriting course and launched the Copywriter Pro Academy. You can take a look at his courses here: https://www.copywriternorthampton.co.uk/copywriting-courses/
Here’s what Stephen had to say about the coaching with me:
“I’m so pleased to be writing this testimonial for Sarina Mann of Breakthrough Public Speaking. Before taking asking Sarina for support, I was, like so many, terrified of video presenting – for me, far more frightening than live public speaking. I was uncomfortable and self-conscious about how I looked, how I sounded and what I should be doing with my hands. The whole process of video presenting filled me with a mixture of fear and revulsion. With an online course close to launch, I needed to address the issue – fast.
From day one of Sarina’s 1-2-1 training, things began to feel different. Sarina’s skill, expertise and patience soon came into play. It started with improved confidence. Before long, with practice and Sarina’s unflagging support, the different elements of video presentation began to fall into place.
Sarina also taught me how to structure presentations and how to make the most of the available technology – microphones, cameras, lighting and subtitles.
Thanks to Sarina, I’m now confidently recording a series of copywriting courses. The difference that Sarina has made has been to transform the process from a nerve-jangling chore … to a pleasure!“
