We take a holistic approach to helping folk communicate their message.  Whether in a conference, on a zoom call or in a pitch for funding, we help folk find out what they want to share, who they will share it with and then work out how they do so in a personal, confident and informed way.

Our Skills Training includes:

  • Presentations

  • Public Speaking

  • Media Interviews

  • Pitching

  • Listening Skills


We bring a deep understanding and experience from across private, public and third sector work to help you and your team create a strategic approach to your message which will not only improve your communications but also your ability to connect with those who support you and those whom you wish to work with and for.

Specialist support includes:

  • Development of communications strategy

  • Crisis communication planning and response

  • Core message development

  • Vision, values and purpose support


Encouraging teams to talk, listen, hear and understand each other can sometimes be easier said than done.  Using a wide variety of techniques, we offer a bespoke and personal service to ensure that your time together is productive, engaging and maybe even a little bit fun! 

Events supported include:

  • Team Days

  • Conferences

  • Conversation zones

  • On-line work


We have considerable experience in working closely with individuals to help them find, hone and share the messages that matter to them and the causes they are part of.  Whether they are leaders, volunteers or folk whose lived experience informs others, we offer a personalised service that can inspire, inform and change the work that you do.


While we love hearing other people's stories, our founder Ishbel Smith has provided key note speeches in a wide variety of events.  Always seeking to capture the heart of the message of the occassion, she brings a creative, engaging and story filled approach to this element of our work.
