My coaching has two parts, access to online videos which guide you through the process of crafting an impactful talk, and one-on-one or group training sessions where we dig into what you have learned and how that applies to your unique story.
The online video platform is a resource you can use again and again for future talks you may want to give.
I have been a curator and speaker coach for TEDxRuakura for the past 6 years. In that time I have helped over 50 speakers craft their talk to deliver inspiration, and impact from the stage. The process that I have developed over the past six years work for business owners, non-profits and start up entrepreneurs.

I highly recommend Chris Hanlon for public speaking coaching as he gave me a lot of clear, direct, guidance while pursing my TedX speech in 2020. Most important was his heart to support myself throughout my public speaking journey. Forever grateful! - Adele Hauwai (concealed information)
Chris's experience with preparing people to speak at TedX is extremely valuable to entrepreneurs like myself. As an entrepreneur we survive on our ability to sell our ideas, team, business and even ourselves. So knowing how to speak in front of people and communicating effectively is one of the most important things we can invest in. Chris has helped my team members and I understand this value more intimately and given us tools which help us be better entrepreneurs. - Josh Faraimo
Chris was my speaker coach in 2018. He was pivotal in getting me stage ready for Tedx Ruakura and delivering the closing talk of the day to an audience of hundreds. Having never given a memorised talk before, I had a lot to learn and Chris was the consummate teacher.
I recommend Chris to anyone wanting to push themselves towards a signature talk, or wanting to hone their speaking skills. He knows his stuff, he’s direct but fair and the process he teaches, works. - Michelle Howie (concealed information)
I attended a 3-day Signature Talk Workshop with Chris and although I present frequently, I came away with so many gems that I have now incorporated into my talks and received a great response as a result.
Whether you are looking to refine their craft like me or just gain the confidence and skills to speak in public, I highly recommend you get in touch with Chris. - Luke Taylor
I recently had the pleasure of attending a workshop that Chris put on to introduce us to the concepts and processes that go into developing and rehearsing a Ted talk. You will be unsurprised to learn that every one of these 10-15 minute talks have dozens of hours invested in them. I was impressed with the coherent and methodical approach Chris put forward and have confidence that this process will yield a solid presentation that will be valuable to my company and my career. - Andre Prassinos
Chris was my speaking coach for TEDx Ruakura. He was very knowledgeable and was good at communicating effective ways to communicate. Chris was also great at speaking publicly about public speaking. All good signs! He helped me a lot throughout the process, and my career will be much better because of it. - Timothy Young
Chris has an amazing amount of knowledge, skill and experience when it comes to training, coaching and public speaking. He has always been a visionary of the next big step in learning and training, he piloted and introduced many of the virtual learning tools I still use today years after Chris left Spark. I still remain in contact with Chris and regularly meet up for inspiration and ideas. - Karl Hartley
