FORMER JOURNALIST TURNED PUBLIC SPEAKING AND PR PROFESSIONAL Jaimie Abbott will personally coach and guide you through everything you need to know about public speaking.

Hi, I’m Jaimie Abbott,

I have over 20 years of PR and media experience and I run my own public speaking, media, and PR training business. 

I have worked as a Journalist, Media Advisor, Stakeholder Engagement Specialist, PR Consultant and Public Speaking Coach. I also spent just over 4 years as an independent Councillor on Port Stephens Council and I know first hand what to do when it comes to public speaking and media interviews.

I’ve been there. I’ve made mistakes, learned some valuable lessons, I’ve appeared confident when I didn’t feel confident inside. I’ve bottled up all those lessons learned and can share them with you. 

My knowledge stems from an intense and rewarding journalism career. In 2011, I was deployed to Afghanistan, where I worked as the Chief Media Trainer in Kabul for six months for Headquarters International Security Assistance Force. It was here that I trained people from all over the world on how to master media interviews and their community presentations.

I started my reporting career with 2GB Radio in Sydney, Australia, before spending three years as a News Journalist and Presenter for Prime Television in Tamworth.

I’ve worked as a Media Advisor to a Federal MP and I’ve also been a political candidate in federal and state elections.

Now, after over two decades in this space, I’m an award-winning media professional, international keynote speaker, and Public Speaking Coach.

I have an MBA, a Master of Strategic People Management, and a Bachelor of Communication, in addition to a Cert IV in Training and Assessment.

I can help you become a better public speaker so you can master your message and best represent your community. I know the political and media industry inside and out. I’ll give you the exact techniques I’ve used to help hundreds of clients improve their public speaking.

I look forward to working with you!

Jaimie Abbott

The training sessions can be run in person, I can come to you, or they can be held virtually.

Each one-on-one booking entitles you to a complimentary session which can be used anytime twelve months after the session. You can use this to do a mock interview or a Q&A where can ask you practice questions, or you can rehearse an upcoming speech with me. You can even send me a video of you presenting and ask for feedback.
