Your confidence coach

ann-finnemoreAnn has broad and long experience of public speaking.  Following her degree, Ann trained as a science teacher and later went into medical research. This required her to present her findings to audiences at in-house groups and at international conferences.  In fact, at her first conference (of the European Society of Organ Transplantation in Barcelona) instead of the small audience she'd expected, she found herself presenting her work to a lecture theatre packed to overflowing with delegates.  They were actually waiting to hear the following speaker who was presenting major research findings and so came early for seats, resulting in Ann speaking to an audience of over a hundred people.  

Since leaving research, Ann has delivered talks on policy This email address is being protected from spambots.

Through teaching roles, she has also lectured to students of all ages.

Ann understands and has experienced the transformational process of going from a nervous speaker to a confident presenter and, as an accredited coach, has the skills to teach others how to go through the process quickly and effectively.  She attends a number of business networking meetings in her local area and is happy to introduce clients new to networking to these groups if required.


Confidence coaching can be done as part of your life coaching, or can be undertaken as a bespoke programme to fit with a pre-determined timescale – ideal for preparing for a specific event.  Contact Ann for details
