Our Coaches – Lola Rutherford

Lola Rutherford – Senior Coach

Courses Delivered: Accent Softening, Effective Communication (incl. Presentation Skills, Public Speaking), Interview Power, & Mixed Courses.

Availability: As I deliver my sessions remotely, I can coach you from wherever you are. 

As somebody who has lost their voice and had to undergo speech therapy to recover it, I understand how crippling it can feel to not be able to express yourself properly. I know how it can affect our sense of connection and belonging at a deep level.

This is why, alongside being a professional singer (yes, I got my voice back!), I also work as a voice coach and certified mindset coach, and why I’m so happy to be one of the Senior Coaches with London Speech Workshop.
Over the years I’ve helped my clients to overcome their fears and anxieties around “showing up”, so that they can feel confident to be themselves in any situation; be it a business pitch, a meeting or making new friends.

I have worked with them to speak off the cuff in live social media situations, to craft compelling presentations, and to deliver them in an engaging manner. Most importantly, I have helped them to do this in a way that honours and expresses the essence of who they are.

I believe that one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is the permission to be who we truly are, and to openly share that with the people we meet.

Whether it’s support around public speaking or guidance with accent softening, the tools that you learn with me at London Speech Workshop will allow you to transform yourself into a confident communicator who captivates their audience in any situation (and enjoys doing it!).

The LSW is highly recommendable. It's an easy and flexible process. Speech coach Natsha Neeson was recommended to me by the LSW after completing the taster session. I agreed to go with Natasha and it couldn't have been a better match. The five sessions were insightful, knowledgeable, therapeutic, fun, and full of good energy. Natasha intuitively picked up on my subconscious goal (which I didn't communicate) as she observed my progress. This is a beautiful quality in a coach.

I had 10 sessions with them. Sam Ferree was my teacher throughout the whole immersive sessions. She is a great teacher and I can't thank enough to the London Speech Workshop for this great journey!

I took 10 online lessons at the London Speech Workshop with Kate Guest to soften my accent. Kate is a great tutor and her lessons are very efficient! She is also a very friendly and approachable person. During our lessons, Kate focused on my needs and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Kate as she is an expert in what she is doing!

I had 15 sessions with Finn Hanlon, who is an excellent coach. Finn tailors the sessions to the personality and needs of his clients and makes sure that they all get the best out of these sessions. He has coached me to become much more confident when communicating with others but, most importantly, he has helped me become more confident with myself. It has been a great experience and I am very thankful!

Working with Finn over the course of 3 virtual sessions was challenging and achieved the precise outcome I was focused on, a promotion! He was astute in his observations and diligently prepared on the topic and context. I look forward to working with him again before too long.

An extraordinary experience with LSW, from the moment of inquiring about their courses through the whole coaching time. I've been working with Finn and what a transformative and personalized treatment. Ah, not to forget about their super office team: Claire, Laura, Harry, and Niamh. I highly recommend London Speech Workshop.

I recently had the opportunity to participate in the London Speech Workshop course and I cannot say enough good things about my experience. The course provided me with a confidence boost and structure that I never thought was possible. My coach, Finn, was an amazing supporter and truly embodies what it means to be a customer-centric professional. He tailored the course to my individual needs and provided continuous support throughout the entire process. The course itself was well-structured and provided me with the tools and skills necessary to improve my presenting abilities. I appreciated the hands-on approach, which allowed me to put what I learned into practice in a supportive environment. Overall, I highly recommend the London Speech Workshop course to anyone looking to improve their confidence, communication structure and ability to connect with audience. The supportive atmosphere, knowledgeable instructors, and tailored approach make this course a must for anyone looking to take their skills to the next level. Thank you, London Speech Workshop, for providing me with such a memorable and valuable experience.

I've just completed the effective communication course with Becky and I would highly recommend. I noticed the difference super quickly within a few weeks. It's forced me into really good habits, made me aware of how I can improve, and now I have tools at my finger tips that make a real difference

In only one session with Mr. Finn Hanlon, I’ve learned far more than I imagined I would! He assessed me in a very kind way, and gave me very useful tips and tricks that instantly work - and actually I’ve never heard of these tips before! I do struggle with shyness a little bit, but Finn was incredibly helpful and warm and focused on encouraging me. I already feel so much more confident about my interview in the future. I really look forward to my future sessions with him. Thanks London Speech Workshop! 😊🙏🏼
