A Kerryman at heart, with a passion for great communication, is offering to help people become more confident when speaking in public.

Mike Kelly from Speak the Speech, is a London-born actor and coach with a lifetime of visits to Ballinskelligs, South Kerry, where both his parents are from.

At the heart of what Mike does is communicating well under pressure. Those times when there is a little more at stake and it’s not enough to just say stuff, we have to deliver.
Mike’s journey into the world of great communication began 25 years ago when he earned a place at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).

"This is where I really learned about being at your best when all eyes are on you. Being prepared, dealing with nerves, being laser-focused in the build-up to performance. I also learned how to breathe!"

Mike’s three years at LAMDA led to roles in London’s West End and numerous TV and film credits including 'Silent Witness' for the BBC and 'The Martian' with Matt Damon.
"I made the discovery 10 years ago that so much of what I do is transferable to the work-place and have never looked back. Now, of course, I do this in the virtual world too."
How does this help you?
Since then Mike has coached many hundreds of people around the world.
"I could never have dreamt how impactful, enjoyable and empowering this work can be. The focus now is the virtual world. The camera can suck the life out of us, we lose confidence in our online presence, we switch the video off…..and the list goes on. These sessions are for real working people with real challenges. They will leave feeling far more confident in how they come across. They will have the gift of consistency."

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
