With 25 years experience as a technology global CEO and Executive Director Peter Russell-Smith founded Talk Big.
Executive Coaching and Mentoring managers is a crucial part of all leadership roles. Peter finds it especially rewarding to successfully coach management and sales teams to develop strategies to grow their business, make their numbers and to deliver operational excellence.
Through the course of his career, Peter led, coached and mentored leadership teams in Europe, Asia, the US and UK. Often team members disliked presenting, some had an intense discomfort with public speaking, to the point of avoidance. Time and time again, public speaking anxiety and lack of confidence were apparent. Naturally Peter developed a specialisation coaching professionals to reduce their fear of public speaking and gain the courage to be good public speakers and presenters.
Talk Big now offers group public speaking classes, presentation skills training and one to one coaching (for business and for individuals) with a focus on eliminating fear and anxiety from public speaking to enable you to deliver your best presentation yet! Peter is based in Kilrea, Northern Ireland and works with teams in the UK, Ireland, Europe and the US.
