The Transformational Speakers Gym

The Transformational Speakers Gym led by award-winning theatrical director and John Maxwell Certified Performance Coach, Richard Mover creates an opportunity for everyone to practice and “work out” individual communication skills concerns, speaking issues and platforms with a professional performance coach. It also unmasks and inspires the discovery of individual gifts and innate abilities while also getting hands-on help with individual communicative limitations either self-imposed or otherwise. This process provides transformative tools to help individuals annunciate their value with clarity and confidence. It serves as an open space free of judgement, where people at different levels, from diverse backgrounds have the chance to experiment and practice speaking with direct, constructive, and creative feedback.


The Transformational Speakers Gym helps every individual who chooses to use it step out of their comfort zones, engage in creative risk-taking, and expand and enhance their emotional range and freedom of expression. It offers specific guidance and collaborative assistance with the personal development of specific speaking styles based on individual assessments. We assist in the mining, structuring, and highlighting of storytelling points while creating nuance, dimension and emotional equilibrium in the delivery. Ultimately, the Gym serves as a process to becoming more connected and captivating as communicators.


 Techniques and exercises are used to avoid self-consciousness when speaking and most importantly, to establish and sustain a deep and rich emotional connection that resonates with audiences of all kinds, cultures, and sizes. This one-on-one personalized “experiential” approach serves as a catalyst for growth, to keep individuals at all levels developing confidence as communicators and continuously evolving.


Zoom sessions are offered to both individuals and groups where they are encouraged to gather and practice their speaking with each other while a coach oversees and supervises. This procedure provides a platform where individuals can “practice” communicating while getting immediate feedback that can help them with the moment-to-moment aspects of connecting to their audience. Ultimately, adding this training enhances their ability to express themselves with more range and empowers them to resonate and connect with an intensified visceral effect. It also activates creative out-of-the-box thinking and opens fresh approaches to speaking and communication in general. The objective here is to provide you and your team with a unique option that can add tremendous value and make a real impact in the forward moving momentum in the lives, both personally and professionally of your team.

  • Improvisational techniques, increasing verbal agility, playing the positive, using imagery, imagination metaphors and analogies, discovering and/or re-igniting passion, acquiring personal presence, amplifying subtextual awareness - knowing what lies beneath your words.
