Ariadne Laurenns

Ariadne Laurenns Confident SpeakA qualified English language coach, Ariadne is a passionate believer in the power of authentic communication and as anyone that knows her will tell you, she lives and breathes this passion in her day to day life and communications .

She brings to the team her many years of experience in a variety of roles in Theatre, Radio, Coaching, Research, Account Management, Telecoms, Marketing and Sales

Ariadne engages with and most importantly ‘listens’ to each and every one of our clients and documents their/their team’s specific requirements and challenges. Her skills as a listener and documenter allow us to design and create a unique & bespoke training experience for each of our clients.

As Director of our Training Department, Ariadne manages and coordinates our busy team of skilled consultants and oversees the successful delivery of all of our training programmes.

Her chief focus is always on the client, supporting them through out the training process and making the whole experience as enjoyable, easy and stress free as possible; from the initial call right through to the post delivery stage.

Ariadne says;

“The first conversation with a new client always feels like the opening chapter of a new book and for my part of it, listening is key!

I am always acutely conscious, particularly in those early stages, of the trust that we are building with the client. They are effectively putting their communication success and even the success of their career in our hands. I feel honoured to be part of a team that delivers on that trust time and time again!

By far, the most rewarding part of what I do has to be, hearing back from our clients about the transformation our training has had on their confidence and ability to present and speak in front of an audience. To know that we have made a difference and have helped them to become the communicators that they were always meant to be, is a truly wonderful experience. Job satisfaction doesn’t get much better than that!”
