Our Coaches – Nick Blakeley
All our coaches are voice professionals with years of experience both in voice, communication and teaching and training. They are handpicked after an extensive interview process, for their ear, their expertise, their warmth and that special je ne sais quoi! Every one of our coaches has gone through extensive training in The Serlin Method™ in addition to their own training.
Having been quite shy growing up, I stumbled across the joy of communication after reluctantly agreeing to enter a Public Speaking Competition. To my surprise, instead of being a painfully awkward experience, I thrived off the enjoyment of making people laugh! This pushed me to study Drama and English at Bristol University and then to train at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, after which I began my career as an actor. I’ve been lucky to work in some lovely places such as the National Theatre and West End, as well as tour shows around the world.
Alongside this, I developed my career as a communications coach, helping people to find their confidence and enjoyment in communicating. I truly love being part of the journey for my clients and seeing how the tools we offer can transform them.
