World-class presentation coaching
for the next generation of presenters

Eliminate the fear of public speaking with Audience Alive’s kids presentation coaching!

Public speaking is the number one fear in the world. When asked, a lot of adults refer back to earlier bad experiences having ruined their confidence. That leads us to believe that we need to spend more time teaching our young better ways at communicating so that they have the right tools to be great public speakers. If you catch kids before they have that fear of speaking in front of people, they miss that obstacle altogether and go on to be great communicators and leaders. Kids presentation training is very beneficial to your child’s development.

Got Questions? The answers are here:

Can you really coach kids to present better?

Yes, we can coach kids. Actually, it’s easier to coach kids, because we help them create a positive belief system and attitudes towards themselves and others during a period when they have a high ability to absorb. We fit the style and pace of the program to the age and situation of the child, so they just enjoy some time talking about themselves and think it’s a lot of fun. We do it before they start getting frustrated with themselves and their world, so they don’t have to “unlearn” as much as adults do. In fact, when coaching adults, we find that they refer to childhood memories of bad experiences. So if we can fix this at source we hope to create a better generation of future presenters.

From what age can you coach kids?

We believe that children are gifted and that they can do amazing things that grown-ups don’t expect them to do. We’ve coached kids in schools as early as 8 years of age. We use games suitable for their age to activate in them positive thinking, curiosity, sense of security in their surrounding, trust and confidence. We work with them to develop their confidence of being heard in front of groups of people, working on their confidence, vocal range, and body language.

How do you coach kids?

Children learn best while they play, because the new knowledge is associated with fun. We bring into our child coaching 20 years of experience in teaching through gamification, coupled with extensive knowledge of the learning process. We assess their communication style and find the best way for each of them to absorb information and we present the program in the way that suits them best.

What is the difference between child coaching and teaching or educating?

Teaching is about introducing knowledge and skills in preparation for some unknown use later. Education is typically about introducing knowledge and skills about specific values and about what’s socially acceptable. Unfortunately, this usually means that education is externally motivated for many young people. Child presentation coaching, on the other hand, is about gaining control over your confidence, mind & body to be an effective communicator. Kids see this as ‘being brave’!  It deals with the things that are important to them, not to somebody else. This makes kids coaching incredibly effective, because they can see positive results right away and this encourages them to continue, so they get better and better results. At the same time, their confidence grows, until they feel they can handle just about anything.

How long is the kids coaching Program?

The kids coaching program is over 3 one hour sessions.

In most cases, the 3 one hour sessions are enough to provide a foundation for the child for years to come. You can read more about the program here:

Where does the coaching take place?

The kids coaching program takes place over a secure zoom video conferencing call. Post Covid19 many people are expected to be able to use this method of communication, and it’s no different for kids. We ask that the call takes place in a quiet environment where the child can focus on the tasks at hand. Parents are very welcome to be in attendance but not necessary.

How much does child coaching cost and what are my payment options?

The kids coaching service, costs NZ$795, excluding GST (15%). This price includes 3 x 1-hour private sessions with the child. Parents are very welcome to be in attendance but not necessary.

Direct payment is the preferred method. Payment must be done before the first session and transaction receipt emailed to the coach. You will receive a tax invoice for the coaching.
