About The Speakers Gym

Hi all. We wanted to talk directly to you about why we set up our business change consultancy, our journey so far and about what makes us tick. We feel deeply connected to our mission and our philosophy. It’s the guiding force behind all of our work, the people we collaborate with as part of The Speakers’ Gym™ team and our amazing clients. We set up The Speakers’ Gym™ approximately 4 years ago. Back then we were called JC Communicate. We had a handful of clients and we were both still acting on the side. All our work was to do with Communication/Public speaking at that stage. But with a difference. We were always far more interested in what made people tick rather than what they looked like whilst ticking! Our training and our experience as actors, working within, culturally, a very hard and extremely competitive industry has been fundamental to our success so far. Why? To be an actor, to work as an actor and to be an unemployed actor means that you have to understand what dedication is. You have to come to terms with rejection and criticism every day, cutting through the noise to discover what’s constructive and what’s often deliberately destructive feedback on your life choices, personally and professionally. What do you learn from this experience? You learn the value of community and support, pushing yourself to always improve and to be forensic about discovering your blindspots. But most importantly, you learn the value of teamwork and uniting around a common purpose. You can’t put on a successful production of anything without being in service to something bigger than yourself – your audience and castmates. At The Speakers’ Gym™ we know in our soul that the combination of servant leadership and connection to a purpose are the two most important factors to longevity, happiness and success within business. It improves productivity, employee retention and profitability, which is great for the business and the board, but for the people? For them it changes everything. They become connected to each other. They become curious, inspired, willing to fight for the North star and to go that extra mile. They also become happier personally and professionally. And that’s got to be great, right? What happens when you unlock the latent potential of everyone you work with? Magic. It’s the rocket that carries your business to new, exciting destinations. We had been working across industries, from FTSE 100’s to start-ups and we saw time and time again people not being listened to. Some people talking too much and some people not talking at all. Wherever and whenever we saw this, the productivity of the team suffered and the culture of the team was terrible. And, we saw this a lot. So how could we fix this problem? It was such a waste of potential! We wrote a philosophy, a belief in a principle to improve how we do business. This philosophy may seem simple but to action it requires no space for ego and arrogance. It requires a team built with curiosity and generosity. It is as follows: Speak, Listen : Act. Speak: you have a voice, it should be heard, be generous Listen: you don’t know everything, be curious, be humble Act: be collaborative and shoot for the stars. When a business embraces this philosophy it solves its own problems, in the short and long term. It encourages and celebrates everyone’s contribution and gives all people within the organisation the space and confidence to unlock their potential. This, in combination with servant leadership and a clearly defined and articulated purpose, changes businesses and changes lives. We’ve used it. We’ve seen it. It works.

Daisy Chain Says

“At The Speakers' Gym, we not only care about delivering quality to our clients, making their lives better and their businesses more successful, but we apply the same principals to anyone who works with us. We see it as you lending us your career and that comes with a responsibility to provide you with an environment were you can excel and be happy. We very deliberately want to employ a parent. As a parent myself (I have a 5 year old and 1 on the way) I know how vital it is to dedicate my time to my family but also and importantly have something outside of them that I can feel invigorated by, as an individual. We want to support parents getting back into the work space who understand this too and are looking to sink thier teeth into their career without sacrificing family time.”
