“As a presenter for a few years, you tend to think you know it all. Then you meet someone like Steve Dawson and realise that you don’t. Steve has proved invaluable in my personal journey - gently guiding, never condescending. His agenda was simple: Helping a presenter to have gravitas with a good old dollop of humour. Deliver the story and never, ever make it about yourself.”
Paula Malai Ali - Presenter, Fox International Channels
"With Steve's background in sports journalism, solid experience and genuinely positive personality, it was very productive and pleasant to work on my public speaking skills. I had a lot to catch up on, but within 2 one-hour sessions in Singapore, he managed to gave very efficient and pragmatic advice which have helped me a lot since then. With his great personality and open mindedness, Steve is a delight to work with and I felt the difference right after my first session. Hence, I booked another session on Powerpoint presentation skills. I would recommend Steve's coaching session to colleagues and friends."
Julen Pradels - SVP, General Manager, Christies
"This is what I learnt from Steve: Presentation is a learnable skill. In the ten weeks I spent with Steve, he took time to observe me and provide actionable practice."
Harry Lee - Vice President. Actuarial reporting, Prudential Assurance
Steve is a fantastic presenter, sharing his experience and combining it with role play, letting you understand and feel the importance of the subject."
Thomas Abouleish - CRO SEKEM Holdings, Eygpt
Steve's course was certainly very beneficial and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
The timing was perfect as well, right after the training I had to do a short video clip for International Women’s Day and I constantly kept his pointers in mind during the filming (trying to channel him.. what would Steve say"
Sylvia Xu - Commercial Manager, Fugro
"I'm very happy with what Steve and I achieved in our one-on-one sessions, especially as I have gained so much more confidence. I've never received so many concrete tips; and I use them, not only when presenting but on a daily basis - for example when pitching an idea to my team.
Loes Schrijvers - Global Learning Manager, Unilever
Steve's experience is second-to-none, and yet he still makes time to mentor and train. He is an absolute professional who pays attention to detail, and goes the extra mile to provide the potential he sees. He is disciplined, firm but finds time for a laugh. I am ever so grateful.
Nikki Muller - TV Presenter, 2015 SG50 National Day Host
"He skilfully brings all his years of experience into the session, leaving you wanting more."
Kevin Patel - MD, Formula 10 Hospitality Group
"Formula 1 is a very technical sport; I understand it very well. But that doesn't mean I convey my knowledge easily to others. Steve has shared his techniques, such that I now speak English rather than F1-ish. He's vastly experienced, but he's also patient, approachable and very easy to work with."
Alex Yoong - Ex-F1 driver and motorsports television pundit
"I had terrible nerves which affected my ability to speak in front of a crowd. With Steve's help and advice, I'm now able to control my nervousness much better and speak in front of key people."
Alvin Yeo - Director ICT, Asia Pacific, Cognita
“Steve is a knowledgeable and engaging speaker. He has an excellent presentation style, and has the ability to make you feel at ease and eager to learn. Within 45 minutes Steve provided us with strategies, tools and knowledge that we could all take and put into action the very next day.”
Candice Golding - Executive Assistant to the CEO at Dr Jones & Partners Medical Imaging
Steve is an incredibly encouraging coach who focuses on the strengths of those he trains. He is willing to set aside additional time to go over practices with detailed comments and corrections, and listens to concerns.
Rachel Genevieve Chia, Journalist at Singapore Press Holdings
Thanks for the enjoyable sessions!Steve trained my team in the art of public speaking and made a superb job. He is very intuitive, ‘gets’ people and really wants to help them improve. Highly recommended.”
Frederic Blanc-Brude - Director

"Steve has been incredibly generous in providing me with his advice and support. From picking the right words, style and tempo needed in delivering the message, to dealing with high-pressure situations."
Rhysh Roshan Rai - Football Television Pundit
"I benefitted so much from Steve's coaching, which was tailored for my abilities, schedule and audience. Steve made my messages both clear and impactful. I really enjoyed our sessions and it is amazing how much calmer I feel when presenting - plus, the feedback I've received from my audience has been great!"
Grace Chen - Head of Group Investor Relations, CapitaLand
"Among the things I learnt from Steve were the importance of getting pronunciation right and being relaxed - they equate to credibility and audience engagement."
Steve Lai - Presenter, Channel News Asia
Steve is a fantastic coach, direct, empathetic, constructive and positive all born our of his own vast experience of speaking. Steve made a major impact on my presentation, stripping what I thought was already minimal to sparse and enabling my LinkedIn masterclasses to have more impact, be more engaging and win me more clients. Can't recommend Steve highly enough, worth the investment.
