Katharine Collins

High Impact Communications Specialist Advisor

In today’s world where automation of tasks is becoming more prevalent, soft skills such as the ability to communicate, build rapport, influence and develop strong personal connections with our clients are more important than ever. It is no longer enough to be an “ok” speaker – whether you are delivering a keynote, telling your story to a client, or running a meeting.  You must really understand how to connect and engage with your listeners, how to tell the story with maximum impact and how to build lasting rapport. 

Kat’s aim is to work with you to help achieve this.  She have worked across all industry types in various countries and with every ability of speaker and has helped many individuals and teams step up to the next level with their communication – both verbal and non-verbal.

Kat has been a speaker coach for over a decade.  Recent clients include: Clayton Utz, working with the partnership pipeline group in Corrs Chambers Westgarth and various work within Laing O’Rourke (from helping their rising talents participants present a TED style talk, to working with the executive on individual skills).  In the past five years Kat has also worked with various TEDx events – most recently TEDxBlighStreet and TEDxFulbrightCanberra.

Kat delivers coaching via group workshops, modularised learning, one-to-one coaching or a combination of all three. She draws on her experience in psychology and research to ensure that all her programs are best-practice.  Kat has a strong focus on not just verbal communication but also on the non-verbal – in other words handshakes, stance, movement, who sits where in a high stakes meeting, eye contact, facial expressions etc.
