About

Alex Merry

Having spent the first 20 years of his life actively avoiding public speaking, Alex found himself co-running a charity fundraising organisation where public speaking was at the very heart of the growth strategy! He was delivering hundreds of presentations to universities across the UK and within a few years they had recruited over 250 people and raised over £12.5 million in the process. 


It was during that time Alex founded TEDxClapham, an offshoot of TED talks, where he helped the speakers prepare for the big stage. Some of those talks went on to change legislation, raise finance and lobby the United Nations. Others have been seen by millions of people across the world. 


That was when he realised the true power of writing and delivering a talk that has the potential to inspire change. Since then Alex has been coaching business leaders, entrepreneurs, athletes and academics to create and deliver presentations on some of the biggest stages in the world.

How I can help:

I run public speaking coaching programmes, workshops and training days for people that need to communicate with clarity and impact.  My coaching philosophy is simple... WHAT you say, matters.  When you have confidence in the message you want to share, it changes everything. Once unheard voices speak up, attitudes change and we evolve.

What to expect:

We will align on your goals and create an action plan for what you want to achieve whether that includes preparing and delivering a great presentation, generally improving your public speaking or presentation skills or becoming a better leader.


Here's an example of what the 8 session x 90 mins package would include: 


Month 1: Performance intelligence

- Quiet leadership: finding your authentic voice

- Stage presence: mastering the medium (online and in person)

- Performing under pressure

- The rules of engagement: owning the room

Month 2: Speech Writing

- Effective storytelling

Testimonials:

"Alex has had a huge impact on my relationship with public speaking - it’s something that has filled me with fear since childhood and not letting my nerves get the better of me has always been a challenge. Alex has transformed my confidence on stage. My delivery has improved significantly and I’m now equipped with core coping mechanisms to help me deal with my nerves. Most importantly though, I’ve smashed every speaking engagement since!" Claire Palmer, Silicon Valley Bank


"Alex is an incredible speaker coach and this course provided rigorous, hands-on insight into how to deliver a great speech. From choosing a theme, structuring, writing and refining content; all the way through to the stage. Whilst delivered 'remotely' and with a number of other participants on the course, I really felt like I was able to benefit from his thorough individual attention  - he made himself available for calls and provided a huge amount of specific, one-to-one feedback.  

I found the experience very challenging... in a great way. It has given me critical tactical strategies for pursuing more public speaking - plus the all-important confidence I was probably lacking to put my head above the parapet on a subject matter I feel strongly about, but was somewhat reluctant to jump into.  I'm 'all in' now." Jess Butcher, MBE, Founder Blippar
