ABOUT

MIRIAM CHANCELLOR, DIRECTOR

In a competitive marketplace, technical skills are not enough. The ability to communicate and present effectively, among other soft-skills, is the secret of high-performing individuals.

Miriam coaches clients to overcome the challenges of public speaking to enable them to achieve their professional goals.

Miriam works with a range of clients, from entrepreneurs to leaders of global organisations. 

As well as running workshops for corporates, Miriam coaches several of New Zealand’s leading C-Suite executives.

Through her years of training, Miriam has identified the small changes that make an enormous improvement to a person’s presenting style. She now seeks to share that knowledge with you.

 

 ONLINE VC Workshop

Level: Beginner - Intermediate

A three-part online presentation workshop that teaches the fundamental principles of effective communication via video conference.  

 

Each module: 45 minutes, including Q&A. 

 

With ‘working from home’ now a standard practice for many businesses, employees across a wide range of industries are now required to communicate via platforms such as Zoom, Skype and Microsoft Teams, as a substitute for face to face communication.

Although convenient, these technologies give rise to challenges—it can be harder to connect with the people we’re communicating with, the environment is less immersive, and the impact can be limited.

In order to compensate for these limitations, clear and confident communication is more important than ever.

To help you overcome these changes, naked audience has launched a three-part online presentation workshop that teaches the fundamental principles of effective communication via video conference.  

At the end of the workshop, you will understand how to:

1. Run an effective, purpose-driven and engaging online meeting
2. Communicate clearly and confidently
3. Incorporate practical techniques to overcome challenges of online and offline communication
4. Avoid the common (and often detrimental) mistakes of video conference
5. Maximise impact and online presence as a speaker

TESTIMONIALS

As a professional service organisation, our people are our greatest asset. From the outset, Miriam has worked with us to devise a coaching plan that responds directly to our needs and delivered it in a way that has been both approachable and direct. With an expert understanding of her subject matter, Miriam has been able to influence and improve the way our most senior leaders communicate. We’re now rolling out Miriam’s programme organisation-wide and would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

- Mr X, Head of Marketing and Brand 

Naked Audience recently delivered a three-part online workshop for various levels of client-facing staff across Publicis Groupe in Australia and New Zealand. We had approximately 50 people attend from across our different creative and media agencies. The engagement during the workshop was excellent and the feedback we have received has been positive. This was a case of "How do you get the basic things right and its really quite simple!" and it was delivered expertly. Thank you so much for the sessions. Simple, clear and effective sessions. We will definitely engage Miriam again to deepen our skills in this very relevant area of communication.  

- Michael Rebelo, CEO, Publicis Groupe ANZ

As a busy executive, I have been increasingly expected to present and speak in public. It has become a key skill execs in this day and age need to have.  I chose to seek out who was best qualified to help improve my skills and decided to engage Miriam from Naked Audience for one on one personal professional coaching. It's been an incredibly positive and rewarding experience with Miriam providing tailored structured feedback and advice that has honed in on key areas of improvement in a professional non-confrontational way.  I highly recommend Miriam and Naked Audience to others who may be time poor and need focussed and professional guidance to get the best results for them.  Amongst a myriad of options for ongoing development being a great communicator and presenter should be a priority for those looking to develop professionally for their careers and personally.
