Our Coaches – Kate Bowes Renna

Book With Kate

Kate Bowes Renna

Principal Coach

I’ve been coaching clients to help them access their unique communication style and overcome their imposter syndrome and critical voice for the past 20 years. Through training and role play I help people achieve their communication goals by giving them tools from my experience as a classical actor. I worked on stage and screen for a number of years, which has given me extensive knowledge of presence and flexibility and an understanding of how to overcome nerves when we’re under pressure. This interest in the impact our mindset can have on our delivery led to my fascination with behavioural psychology and neuroscience.

I regularly coach on the senior executive programs at the Said and London Business Schools where I work with business people from across the globe on how to be more effective leaders through their communication. In their feedback so many of them say that it was the day they were dreading in the course, but the one from which they took the most! In 2019 I completed a course in NeuChem – a neuroscience coaching technique – with the ILM (Institute of Learning and Management). In 2020 I presented a webinar to a group of 200 people who had been furloughed. I have worked globally across all sectors, both private and public, from start-ups to Sainsbury’s, PR to the Palace, architects and actors to airlines.

I was absolutely delighted with the speed of progress made during the sessions with Kate. Even within 5 sessions, I felt as if I had made significant progress towards my objectives, but also established a framework from which I can continue to develop. I would add that Kate’s personality, clarity and enthusiasm (all valued attributes when interacting on video calls) really supported my development. Whilst the sessions were structured and punchy, they were also tailored to provide a really helpful focus on some of my weaker areas. Ultimately the technical improvements Kate helped identify and nurture have translated to an improved level of confidence. I couldn’t recommend Kate highly enough.

Oh, the London Speech Workshop – every session was like a little gift of knowledge and skill!

I wish I could tell you my full story with every detail and demonstrate all the skills I have learned from LSW. The best part is that the course is personalized, unlike many online courses and books. Then you also have the opportunity to turn this knowledge into skill.

Cannot recommend highly enough!

Kate is professional, fun and knows how to give feedback in a non-soul crushing way as a goal to help you improve! We had three sessions together and I gained more confidence and techniques working with Kate but she also helped me recognize my speaking style and how to improve on areas connected to me as an individual and my area of work. I learnt a lot from Kate, which I have used for speaking engagements and I have received positive feedback. I feel like I have more style now! I would recommend Kate and also would work with her again.
