Jamie Chapman

Principal Coach

I’ve been a Principal Coach at LSW for over a decade now! It’s been a source of tremendous pride and fulfilment to have helped clients get jobs they might not otherwise have got, overcome nerves when presenting, and become the very best speakers they can possibly be. Over ten years, I’ve seen the techniques we’ve pioneered work and, in many cases, transform people’s communication. It’s why I genuinely love working here.

I qualified as a teacher with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and hold their Licentiate Teacher’s Diploma (LLAM Hons). I have some 24 years’ experience in working with both international and UK clients on Accent Softening and Effective Communication. I’m also a professional actor (having won a scholarship at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School) and have worked in the West End as well as being in the regular cast of various television serials (most notably, the Emmy award winning ‘EXTRAS’).

Jamie is a particularly brilliant coach, who gave me the tools to not only speak more coherently but also the confidence to present to big groups. Shortly after the training I presented training to 80+ people at work. Would recommend.

Freddie T - April 2021

This was probably one of the best investments in my professional career. I took the Effective Communication course with Jamie Chapman. Jamie will look very closely at your particular traits and customize the program to make sure you get the most results. He is a fantastic coach.100% worth it, can’t recommend it enough!

Victor G-A - July 2020

Without a doubt, the best investment I’ve made in myself. The team at LSW are fantastic- from the administrative office to the coaches (worked with Jamie and Gilly). The manuals they provide are invaluable and very well written, and the audio guides are very useful references and for practice. I started with 10 sessions, then bought 5 more and have invested in 3 more. I’ve bought more as the value add is very clear, I feel happier with the way I sound – and that was my main aim. I’d recommend LSW to anyone who is looking to be more confident in their speech and communication, the investment is well worth it.

AJ - July 2020

I am working with Jamie Chapman now and highly recommend him! He is a fantastic teacher and coach! Every week I look forward to our session because these sessions are fun educational and very practical. Jamie teaches me to speak with such a magic spark that makes people listen to me and trust me. These tools that Jamie teaches help me to be in control of how I feel when I speak and this changes the way I behave and appear. I find this work on our communication skills necessary for everyone and I have already recommended Jamie to a couple of my friends. Thank you, Jamie, I am glad that I have found London Speech Workshop and started working with you. Look forward to our next session!

Julia Y - June 2019

I can recommend LSW after having a great course with my tutor Jamie Chapman. Jamie was so quick to understand my problems making me aware early on what my main challenges and opportunities would be. Together we worked on making great improvements to the way I speak and present myself to others. Amazing results and good fun too!

Ben Stewart - July 2020

Jamie is a a fabulously fantastic teacher. He sets a high expectations that will be achieved very soon. He is well prepared and organized. In other words a master exhibiting expertise in every minute of his lessons throughout.

Yakup - July 2019

I can only recommend LSW to anyone willing to improve their pronunciation. It’s been a transformative experience, and Jamie has helped me to improve my pronunciation and soften my accent enormously. My only regret is not having taken this course some years earlier.

Jamie is absolutely brilliant. He made our sessions very enjoyable, and he quickly spotted where my issues were. Additionally, I truly appreciate his honesty because it made me understand there’s no secret recipe, only constant daily practice.
