Rachel Hankey, Director

Rachel is a trained, professional actress who has been working in the industry for over eighteen years. During this time she has developed her voice, confidence, self-awareness and understanding of how to ‘work’ an audience.

Some years ago, she was asked to use her performing and public speaking skills to help teachers improve their confidence and engage with their students. Soon other companies began to ask for advice in public speaking, from delegates speaking at conferences to individuals wishing to develop interview techniques.

Rachel began to realise that many successful and otherwise confident people found it inhibiting and stressful to stand up and speak in front of others – be it to an audience of one or a thousand. She became fascinated by the art of public speaking and created ‘SureSpeech’ as her reputation grew.

Why Choose SureSpeech

SureSpeech specialises in communication skills. We do not offer other kinds of training; therefore you are guaranteed a trained expert in presentation and communication skills, we are not just ‘excellent trainers’.

Our trainers are professional actors, which enables them to transfer their performance/communication skills to businesses. What can business people learn from trained actors? Well, business people and actors face similar demands: For a start both must communicate what they are saying to their audience with clarity and conviction. Not only must they convince their audience that what they are saying is important, but also that they themselves believe in it. Actors rely on technique to convey their messages; SureSpeech teaches you these techniques and how to use them in your business.

Whether an ‘audience’ of one or a thousand, SureSpeech can help you become a more confident communicator.
