Aly Harrold

Public Speaking Coach

Aly Harrold is an award winning public speaking coach and professional speaker working with women who feel the need to find their voice, be heard and be more visible whether within a corporate setting or as an entrepreneurial business woman.  She is the creator of a successful coaching programme taking the nervous and anxious speaker to a place of vocal confidence and empowerment.  Aly considers it to be a gift to work with someone who did not even believe it was possible for them to stand up and be heard and taken seriously for what they have to say. They come to understand and realise that being an excellent speaker elevates them above their competition and in the eyes of their peers and associates. So often nerves and anxiety around speaking will prevent someone from moving forward in their career and going after a promotion.
