The ability to speak with confidence & authority is the MOST valuable professional skill you can have.

But most people struggle with their speaking confidence.

They ...

  • get nervous and tongue-tied
  • think aloud and ramble, or
  • simply feel like an imposter

Here's the thing ...

Speaking is a SKILL. Not a talent.

Which means it can be learned!

It's not about natural abilities, charisma or 'born-with-it confidence'.

EVERYONE can learn to speak with confidence and impact.

Hi 👋I'm Cat Matson ... 

... and I've been speaking, presenting and facilitating for more than 25 years. But not in a boring, rigid or even rah-rah way. In an authentic, natural, grounded and connected way. In fact the most common feedback I receive on those post-event survey forms is “I love how real and approachable Cat is”.

My speaking career started at school, on the debating team, where my favourite debating position was third speaker negative; in other words, minimum prep but maximum impact required. Then I spent 5 years working with probably the most challenging audience you can imagine; young people. And not compliant young people, but young people who were disadvantaged, dancing with the juvenile justice system and who were thought to be ‘unteachable’ and ‘un-tameable'. Turns out EVERYONE can learn and grow if they have good teachers who know how to connect with them.

The bulk of my career has been in ‘professional circles’; senior roles in local councils, business advisory, coaching and consulting, industry leadership, marketing and events.

My ability to speak with passion, confidence, authenticity and authority, to audiences of 1 to thousands is EASILY the most powerful skill I have in my professional toolkit. And it is the 'secret’ to what others see as a career of significant leadership, impact and success.
