Training

professional communication training with Myles Pollard

My career as an actor is dependent on me performing confidently in an extremely high pressured environment to deliver sincere messages. This involves highly tuned listening skills and an ability to be in control of my emotional state (nerves).

When auditioning for roles or at work on film and television sets, I need to build rapport quickly and comfortably with actors, directors, producers and casting agents to deliver clear messages and relaxed performances.

Anyone can present and communicate clearly and confidently. If you understand your message impeccably, have a strong reason for sharing it and can control your emotional state, then your message can be conveyed with ease and authenticity.

Communication Training Content

My workshops explore the following elements of effective communication; building confidence, body language, first impressions, public speaking, managing emotional state (nerves), finding your authentic voice (authentic selling), active listening/observation and building rapport. When people are fully relaxed and in control of their emotional state then their authentic personalities shine through. They are then positioned to clearly articulate their thoughts and feelings confidently. This engages people and builds rapport.

Having facilitated these modules for many corporate clients over the last decade, I’ve designed a more kinaesthetic approach that has far less chalk and talk, is fun, challenging and filled with experiential learning.”

Myles is sensational! He engages with the audience exceptionally well. Myles encouraged introverts to get the confidence to stand up in front of the audience and speak from the heart, and stay composed.

It is one thing to stand in front of an audience and deliver a speech but it is quite another to take the audience on a journey. That’s what Myles Pollard does.


I spent some time with Myles learning how to capture an audience and make them feel part of a conversation. How to understand and develop the purpose of an address and use purpose as a basis for building a sense of purpose with the audience and perhaps most importantly understand myself as a speaker.


Myles Pollard is a superb communicator. He understands the art as well as the power of speech and connection with audiences. He has a commanding presence yet a soft touch and would make a great contribution whether it is in training, acting as Master of Ceremonies or taking on the responsibility of being a guest speaker at a special function.

Myles gave us some great techniques to use when presenting so that we can engage with our audience and process adrenalin. He drew on his personal experiences to make us feel comfortable, taught us how to prepare and deliver content comfortably and explained clearly where we could improve. The skills acquired can be used when presenting to audiences, business partners and board rooms. We would highly recommend a day with Myles if you want to present with confidence.

Myles is professional, approachable, and flexible. Nothing was too much trouble and he understood what we were trying to achieve. Able to connect fundamental acting principles that would improve communications within our franchise setting; understanding the need to communicate at all levels of our business with confidence and clarity. The team left the day inspired, and with a quiet confidence that they could apply what they had learned easily. Highly recommended if you are after communications training that ‘sticks’.

I was just a few days away from a critical interview in my career and I knew that I still needed to find a way to improve my ability to present well and appear more confident. I work in the Financial Services industry in New York and I scheduled a 90 minutes session with Myles online. I wasn’t sure how much I would be able to absorb in just one session, but Myles’ approach was methodical and walked through all of the problem areas I’d previously experienced. He outlined a framework that helped me prepare for my interview in advance and also control my performance under stress during the interview itself. The session far exceeded my expectations and quickly helped me perform at a higher level. Myles is an incredibly talented actor and an engaging communicator, but I’d add to that list that he’s also a terrific teacher. I’d highly recommend seeking out his guidance on communicating effectively and performing under stress.

Its an easier approach as a professional surf photographer that has been trying to push his own limits in waves of consequence than the thought of public speaking, far less nerves, never anxious, the heart rate will increase slightly thinking about the wild life that has visited the area in the past, give me a swim in the middle of the ocean any day of the week than put me on the stage in front of an audience.

The last couple of years, opportunities have arisen to face the unthinkable, talking, workshops, sharing thoughts on stage and to be very honest it’s a scary proposition even thinking about it, I have bumbled my way through it, never happy with my performance and how I have felt leading up to the presentation.

To become better at what you do, certainly takes practise, public speaking is no exception, as a result I decided to get professional guidance from Myles Pollard and take a one-day course in the art of public speaking, I should have done this two years ago, I am so grateful for the incredible information, the knowledge, the experience and the tools Myles shared, while still a little nervous in front of a crowd I am far more relaxed and now look forward to the challenge of my performance, cheers Myles, beers on me.

In a few short hours, Myles Pollard’s workshop gave me a boost of confidence and skills in how to discover, improve and make best possible use of the power of my own speech. Using his experience and training as an actor and orator, Myles led us through several techniques which I was able to put into immediate practice in a range of speaking situations and scenarios, both formal and informal, with great effect.

Recently the IDEAS Principal Collegial group had Myles Pollard present a workshop titled ‘Presenting with Confidence’ . This workshop focused mainly on persuasive communication techniques. The practical workshop was very engaging from the minute Myles entered the room. The level of Principal experience in the room was high however every single participant felt they left with many more ideas, skills and techniques from the half day session.

Myles was a fantastic facilitator of this workshop. He was well versed in the topic, well organised and his presentation had good flow. I would highly recommend his workshop to any corporate group seeking to improve their presentation techniques.

Elders recently asked Myles to run an intensive workshop session with some of our experienced WA managers. We wanted Myles to focus on their presenting styles, helping them build on their diverse strengths and confidence within their roles. Myles ensured that he was well prepared and had an understanding of our business, the culture and challenges our staff may face.

From the beginning of the session, Myles captured the participants attention and it was an enthusiastic, engaging, interactive workshop. We were pleased to receive a lot of positive feedback from our staff. They unanimously agreed that it was a worthwhile experience and they now feel more confident and equipped with the tools to take their presentations to the next level.

I can highly recommend Myles in what he offers to corporate business and look forward to working with him again in the future.
