Sam Buckingham TV Presenter | Speaker | Public Speaking CoachSpeak with confidence on stage and screen
Tap into your truth. Speak with impact. Be unstoppable.
“I coach professionals and business owners to become confident and powerful speakers so they can grow their reputation, influence and income”.
I know you. You are smart, savvy, soulful and wise.
You have a big heart, big dreams and a big, bold vision. You want to make a difference in this world and you’ve got something important to say. You have a voice and it matters.
But for so long, you haven’t felt heard. You’ve been too afraid to be who you truly are. Maybe you’re supremely shy or nail-bitingly nervous or anxious about what it means to use your voice and speak up.
You want to light up the room with your powerful presence. You want to inspire, influence and motivate your audience to action. You want to build an extraordinary brand that people adore.
And to do all of that? You need to step up. Speak out. Be visible.
And use the power of your voice.
WORK WITH ME
Speak from Stage
What an opportunity! You and your message, a stage and an audience.
What first impression do you want to make?
Since speaking is an audio platform, you only get one chance.
What do you have to or need to say? You realise you need to know exactly what you wish to say, otherwise, searching for words from stage, or worse, using weak language simply because you are unprepared will dilute your power.
Contact me to find out how we can get you from good to great!
Condensing a life time of study or experience into a powerful 20 – 45 minute talk is not for the faint hearted.
Do you know your key message? Have you nutted out your take-aways? Who are your audience? Do you use literary devices to elevate your language so your words can be inhaled? What story will you use to distill your message?
Your message has to be memorable, otherwise, what’s the point?
How to do this is a skill of its own complexity.
Your aim is a standing ovation and I can help get you there!
Let’s face it, most business presentations are either dry in content or dull in delivery. But they don’t have to be!
Understanding and using speech craft techniques such as hooks, vocal variety techniques that add shades of meaning and flavour to your words and pattern interrupters, can help to spice up even the most boring topic.
Be known for your engagement, your humour, your impact.
Book a time with me to discuss how you can banish boredom and engage the disinterested!
HELLO & WELCOME
I have spent 20+ years working as a TV Presenter across all Australian television networks, representing an array of brands from fast moving consumer goods to national service providers and everything in between.
Most notably appearing in morning chat shows and fronting major brand television commercials, my face has become familiar with households throughout the nation.
If it’s not my face you recognise, it maybe my voice having voiced numerous tv and radio ads, messages on hold & content for information lines. My voice has been my currency for the majority of my career.
Having been formally trained in Speech and Drama with Trinity College of London, I am a soul-based public speaking expert and professional speaker coach for thought leaders, executives, aspiring influencers and female entrepreneurs.
I help people speak with impact on stage and screen, leverage their influence and become the super force they are meant to be.
“The ability to speak with absolute precision is one of life’s greatest freedoms.”
– Sam Buckingham | Professional Speaking Coach, Public Speaker Trainer + Vocal Mentor
From the stage to the boardroom to live videos and TV, Sam has a passion and skill for helping her clients maximise their influence, stop playing small and bring their words (and story) to life. Here’s a peak into her industry experience.
My Voice Over demo
“I called Sam Buckingham while preparing my very first piece-to-camera script for a global launch campaign. The gorgeous Sam sees straight through your layers of conditioning and tension, and provides a clear pathway towards your true and most rewarding form of expression.
I recommend her unequivocally to anyone preparing for an important speech, media training, or seeking connection and genuine, effective expression in their everyday life. “Annie Kendall
“Speaker training with Sam has TRANSFORMED the way I show up ONLINE.
At a personal level, the learnings have been deep and insightful, pushing me beyond my comforts, to perform more consciously. That in itself, is powerful.
If you have to even think about how you sound or come across, then that’s enough to tell you that you need Sam!”Jessica Nazarali
“Visibility is paramount for success in the online (and offline) space. Video, workshops, social stories, and more all require you to stand up and share your message. Your ability to do this well, will give you the competitive edge to stand out from the noise.
Working with Sam transformed my presentation style. Sam Buckingham is without doubt, Australia’s go-to expert when it comes to speaking and presenting.
If you struggle with your presence at all, then don’t think twice, book in to see Sam and she will sort you out.”Jane Copeland
“Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
Its refreshing to have someone on your team who has your back from start to finish and crosses the line with you. Sam delivers and goes above and beyond to do so. No cookie cutter approach, Sam was highly supportive and understood exactly what I wanted and needed to achieve. She lit the way from beginning until end and was personally vested in the end result.
I couldn’t have achieved the end result without her. I can’t recommend Sam highly enough. If you want support, guidance, authenticity AND results in the hands of someone who keeps it real, Sam delivers.”Sharon Ruddleston
