Testimonials

“Lin’s support has been truly revolutionary in supporting me to prepare for my latest presentation. When I was tasked with giving a TED-style talk to a large audience my heart sank. However, 2 months later and after a number of intense sessions with Lin I did it, and it actually felt like a success and I got some wonderful feedback from the audience! Lin is superbly professional in everything she does and how she has worked with me, and has also been really intuitive in getting the best out of me. All the exercises and ‘home-work’ made a real difference and I have actually just asked Lin for her time and support for another few sessions to keep improving. Many thanks Lin – it is a real pleasure and privilege to be working with you!”

Moreover she brings a positively persistent energy to her work, is intuitively able to work in a supportive and stretching way with clients, and in addition to these great strengths she also has a super sense of enjoyment and fun – all of which makes working with her such an enormous and definitely rewarding pleasure.”

Frances Green, FCIPD, HR Director, Medical Research Council


“Recently I’ve been giving a series of talks on various aspects of social media. In the last two sessions I was lucky enough to have Lin Sagovsky as one of the attendees. Although at pains to let me know that my sessions were full of good content Lin offered to help me improve my presentation technique. I had the cake, what was missing was the icing. What a revelation. I knew my presentation skills weren’t as good as they could be. I just didn’t know why, or where to start to improve the situation. Very quickly Lin was able to pinpoint the areas that needed working on and offer equally rapid solutions. In less than two hours we looked at body language, breathing, timing, staging (sight lines, lighting, acoustics), managing the audience and much more besides. All of Lin’s advice and tuition addressed my specific needs. I can’t recommend her highly enough. I have my next public speaking opportunity in a couple of days time. I’d better be good. Lin will be attending once again. If you think you could do with some help in improving your own public speaking you could do a lot worse than signing up for Lin’s free tips newsletter. It’s a good first step in the right direction.”

David Hughes, Creative Director, David and Associates


“Lin supported me to overcome my anxiety about public speaking and delivering training to large groups. Her energy and creativity are infectious and she inspires you to be playful, adventurous and generally more comfortable in your own skin and with the sound of your own voice. She is also intuitive, kind – and funny. As a result, I now find it easier to relax, be myself, and even enjoy challenging situations! Working with her was a joy and I will certainly return to her whenever my confidence needs a boost.”

Melanie Jones, Executive Coach, Said Business School

“I cannot recommend Lin highly enough. Lin led a training workshop at our global conference that was universally praised. In 2 hours she completely won over many participants who were reluctant to acknowledge the value of “soft skills” training . Many felt the training was transformative, and were eager for more coaching from Lin. One of my team members has had individual sessions with Lin and is quickly developing advanced communication skills and an enhanced business presence.”
