Finn Hanlon

Senior Coach

Being in control of how we communicate in any given situation is the single most powerful tool we have to affect change. I became a communication coach to support positive and lasting change.

With a background in teaching, performance skills and a wealth of hands-on business experience, my coaching style couples practical sessions with a science-based approach to learning and behaviour. I have supported individuals and teams – from tiny start-ups to multinational organisations – on topics including brand, pitching, leadership, impact & confidence, presentations, networking, voice & accent, conflict, managing nerves and so much more…

But no matter the session title, at the heart of all this exciting personal and professional development is YOU. My joy as a coach is finding out about you – how you learn and what your ambitions are. This is where we start and this is where we realise the positive, lasting change you want to make.

Having trained as an actor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, I have worked around the world with renowned companies and directors in theatre, TV and radio honing my skills as a storyteller and becoming fascinated with how we connect our stories with every audience member. After settling back in the UK with my family I trained as a teacher and taught in some of the most challenging English schools, developing my expertise as a teaching and learning specialist. In response to a need within the education sector, I co-founded Edisodes, an online learning platform that supports schools and students across the globe.

As a communication and leadership coach I use my varied professional background and expertise to support individuals in achieving a range of personal and professional communication goals.

I have used this company’s services regularly for employees and clients over the years. They’ve been consistently professional, diligent and often outstanding. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone

I can highly recommend London Speech Workshop, the teaching is professional, very effective and also quite fun. I greatly enjoyed my lessons and made significant progress.

Kasia H - August 2019

One of the best learning experiences I’ve had! I am from Argentina and I currently live and work in London; the London Speech Workshop Accent Softening course was just what I needed to feel more confident in myself. Thank you LSW for all that I’ve learnt. Highly recommended!

Julieta O - July 2019

Finn Hanlon is an amazing coach. I have had two sessions with him so far and learnt so much already. He listened to my particular struggles and showed me how to get over them – for example pausing to create emphasis and putting the spotlight on the audience instead of me, to make me feel more confident and less nervous when speaking to a group of people. He offers the perfect balance of kindness and empathy, mixed with constructive feedback and tips for improvement. Would recommend Finn to anyone looking to feel more confident and get more out of their interactions at work and home. Thanks LSW!
