If you have presentations to do at work, if you're thinking you would love to say poetry, stories or comedy routines from a stage, if your best friend just asked you to be his best man and make a speech for his marriage...

If you're starting up a business, if you're thinking of standing up for a cause, if you want to be heard in social settings...

If you want to become more assertive and confident,  to express yourself more and better than you do...

Organic speaking is the way! 


Why this word: "Organic"? 

Firstly because it reflects my values: I like what's ethical, respectful of the environment, sustainable... 

Secondly, because I value authenticity and simplicity. Speaking "organically" is being true to who we really are. 

Thirdly because I am found of Taoist philosophy. They say: "Follow the natural way". The way I lead training sessions is a "let's go with the flow" way. Everyone progress at their own pace, work on what needs to be worked on in the present moment, everyone learns from everyone. 


Sometimes I define myself as a story teller, sometimes as a performing artist, sometimes I am a spiritual clown, sometimes I am a natural philosopher, sometimes I am a gardener, sometimes I have an identity crisis. When you're an artist, that's quite normal. I am also an artist when I teach. 


How about becoming a confident speaker, get your voice heard and tell the stories you want to tell? 


 Every other week or so, I send a newsletter crammed with useful tips and thoughts about human communication, public speaking, confidence building, emotional intelligence... written and shared in a spirit of organic growth. Sign up using the form below and welcome! 

Delivery trumps content is the one top tip:
A wonderful bunch of roses offered with arrogance will never beat a disastrous bunch of sloppy marguerites offered with a blush or a smile by a child or a lover...

Thank you!  :-) 


About me:  I have been performing as a public speaker, story-teller and comedian

for more than twenty years, mostly in France. 

 When I arrived in the UK in 2008 I could hardly hold a conversation in English...

When I was at school, I was so terrified when sent to the blackboard that I couldn't perform even the simplest operations!

I have walked the path...

l am raconteur, a gardener and a philosopher

I am also a bit of a maverick.... and I am a trainer

I have a degree in psychology which gives me additional insight into the communication process. 

For more about me: Read this excellent blog post written by Evie Prichard in the Vrumi Blog: Here


 In Organic Speaking Sessions, everyone gets three to five times on stage and gets feed back to practise on the spot. Thus, everyone can see the difference between "Before" and "After" getting feed back. 

 We laugh a lot as well. Serious work doesn't have to be done with sadness...
