James Bryce: Becoming a more articulate, confident speaker at work and in life

Available on these channels and more

In a job interview, a presentation at work or a difficult conversation with your team leader — are you getting your message across? Communication skills are not just for public speaking. They are how you express yourself to anyone, anywhere.

How can you speak clearly, confidently, yet still as your authentic self? That’s the topic of my conversation with James Bryce, CEO and founder of Speech Intelligence. James coaches leaders to improve how they communicate. He’s also developed an AI-powered app, Speech Intelligence, that provides feedback. You talk for a couple of minutes, receive a score and personalised feedback — and try again! Find out more at Speech Intelligence.

The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Flashes+Sparks.
