Mel Sherwood

Mel Sherwood is a pitch and presentation specialist on a mission to help ambitious entrepreneurs and business professionals to take centre stage, embrace the spotlight and present clearly, confidently and credibly. After seeing so many business people doing themselves a disservice through ineffective pitches and presentations (or avoiding public speaking completely), Mel felt compelled to share the tips she has learned over a lifetime of being on stage.

Through her interactive keynotes, masterclasses, workshops and coaching she reveals valuable tools and techniques that support individuals and organisations to design and deliver winning pitches and presentations.

Clients include large government organisations such as Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Development International, SMEs from advertising agencies to software companies, as well as individuals who attend her popular public courses and one-to-one coaching sessions.

An Australian who has called Edinburgh home since 2006, Mel is the current President of the Professional Speaking Association UK and Ireland (Scotland Region). She is a multi-award winning speaker and a qualified trainer, mediator and NLP Practitioner. Combining over 20 years’ experience in business with a background as an actor, presenter and singer, she loves helping her clients to transform their lives and businesses through improved communication skills.
