Who is Valentine Palmer?
Some people are naturally sceptical about the results I achieve with those from all walks of life who have a major problem when it comes to communicating with others. Channel 5 and the Terry and Gabby show was no exception. They set me a challenge. I was to take a young lady with obvious vocal and personal communication problems and turn her into a star. Furthermore, they gave me just 24 hours to achieve this. Watch and see how I did it.
HSBC invited me to their Canary Wharf HQ to share some of my tips and techniques with those who had recently joined the bank. Many of them were concerned about fulfilling a customer-facing role and, after my presentation, told me how helpful they had found it.
As well as a coach and a performer, I’ve always been a writer. In late 2011 I was commissioned to write a book about my great uncle, Second Officer Lightoller, the only senior officer to survive the sinking of the Titanic. It was called, Titanic …And The Strange Case of Great Uncle Bertie, and was published in time for the 100th anniversary of the great ship’s loss on 14th April 2012. While researching for my book, I came across the possibility of an extraordinary conspiracy. I have now woven this amazing story into the fabric of my new novel, Conspiracy, which will appear later this year.
I’ve been several things, other than a coach, but that’s what’s helped me to be a unique coach, able to help my many clients from around the world with their voice and presentation challenges.
