Sam spoke at our Grow your Career Your Way event, it was great working with him as he took time to really understand the event and then build the content collaboratively to ensure it was relevant. The session was scored 4.2 out of 5 amongst attendees, we really enjoyed it, some great insight and food for thought.GemmaGoogle
The course’s speaking tips and techniques were peppered with plenty of war stories from the sharp end of comedy makes for a more engaging experience. Also, I can see that there is a need in the era of the millennial for corporations to show their softer side, be more friendly, natural and humorous and perhaps less starchyRogerLloyds of London
We used Smirk Experience to speak at our Strategy and Positive Change Away Day and the feedback has been fantastic. Sam met with us beforehand to drill down in exactly what we were looking to achieve and then created a workshop that not only met but surpassed our needs. The session was great fun but also full of practical tangible tips for the team to use. We’re already looking forward to working with Smirk again.ZelinaThe AA
We found working with Sam to be fun and informative, helping our players both on and away from the playing field.
We’ve recommended him to others and invited him back for another session.LeeFulham Football Club
Sam provided useful insight into how to leverage comedy to gain confidence not only in the workplace but in general. A lot of our attendees had been out of the workforce for a few years rearing children and needed a confidence boost to either make the leap back or even start their own business. We’ve had great feedback from Sam’s seminar with attendees saying they feel energised and motivated.MoniqueThe Motherhood
Sam’s session was really well received. Attending delegates have been sharing their experiences and learnings with colleagues who weren’t there.
A fresh look at the age old issue of connecting with clients.RobAdobe
I was blown away by the presentation by Sam last week and, on reflection, felt the urge to make it a public recommendation. Sam is not just your average speaking coach, he delves into evolutionary psychology, provides great anecdotes and discusses the pitfalls you may encounter all while keeping a smile on your face with his trademark humour.ChrisEx-Exeter Chiefs player and RPA delegate
The feedback has been fantastic. Public Speaking is so important in this industry and Sam’s unique approach inspired the team, helped them to look at things from a different perspective and generally invigorated us to get up and do more talking!
It really is a training session out of the norm, hilarious but with real knowledge and experience at its heart. The transferable skills from the comedy circuit to the business meeting are there for all to see, and very, very useful.JohnRocket Media Agency
I was always acutely aware that I was progressing despite and not because of my public speaking skills, but Sam has opened my mind. He listened to my story, identified what needed to be addressed and showed me a series of exercises and mindsets that have helped immeasurably.
We practised with a specific pitch in mind, where we not only went over what I needed to address but he also gave me a few one liners to use that worked brilliantly. We won the pitch and I can recommend him to anyone with any public speaking concerns.Group HeadLondon Media Agency
