At school, I was doing well academically but my school reports reveal that I was a “very nervous and shy child”. I hated speaking out loud. This held me back.
I found drama, music and dance helped me and I became interested in how the arts could improve confidence.
After leaving university, and travelling to different parts of the world, I took an administrative role in a corporate Leadership Training and Development company.
The company employed actors and psychotherapists to deliver training and coaching courses for executive level at several blue chip organisations.
We worked with many top City institutes. I gained a solid foundation and sharp insight in to the world of communication – not only from making cups of tea for a variety of leaders but also from meandering my own way through my career.

Firo B. Thomas Kilman.
Coaching & Neuro Linguistic Programming.
While I was working for this company, I took courses in NLP and Life coaching with the Coaching Academy and explored FIRO B, MyersBriggs, Gestalt and numerous training models that helped people progress effectively.
I went through great challenges in my professional and personal life which prompted me to create a programme for graduates and students – helping them beat nervousness, grow presence, manage bullies and speak with flow and confidence, particularly under pressure.
My courses have evolved and I’m always learning. Those transitional stages of life is where my work, based on goals and communication, can make the difference.
