January Book of the Month

Our January book of the month is “Goodbye Glossophobia – Banish Your Fear of Public Speaking” by Esther Stanhope. 

Esther Stanhope is an international speaker, impact Guru and former live BBC Producer dedicated to helping clients and their staff to become more confident and charismatic leaders.

Esther began her media career in television and worked at the BBC for 20 years. An experienced “Live” BBC producer, Esther has worked with many Hollywood stars and ‘Big’ names and personalities and interviewed 4920 celebrities since starting out as a radio reporter 25 years ago. She knows just how to get the best performance out of absolutely anyone.

Esther has helped more than 8000 professionals, business leaders and politicians speak with confidence and has spoken at events and organised away days all over the world including Tel Aviv in Israel, Budapest in Hungary and Zurich in Switzerland.

Glossophobia is the fear of public speaking and Esther’s book is for you if you –

  • hate having all the eyes on you
  • would rather stick pins in your eyes than speak in public
  • think “Oh ****” in the Q&A after a presentation
  • need to be more visible to build your career and your business
  • dread the thought of introducing yourself round the table (creeping death)
  • need confidence to do it and help NOW!

Whether you’re in the corporate, public or creative side of the world, this book helps you smash any presentation and feel confident. Esther Stanhope shares her quirky secrets so you can stand up, speak out and be yourself.

“At some point in our careers we all have to address an audience of some sort. This book is packed with real life tips from someone who spent her life behind the camera (at the BBC) coaching others to be at their absolute best.”
Vanessa Vallely – Founder WeAreTheCity, Speaker and Author of Heels of Steel

Copies of the book can be ordered from the Amazon Website. For more information on Esther’s speaking work please see her webpage here on our site.


We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
