Hi there! My name is Oliver Medill and I’m a public speaking coach, mentor and evangelist.
But that’s just a label.
What does this mean?
As well as speaking in public for a living, I know how important the ability to communicate – either live or on video – is, particularly in this information age, where anyone can reach out to huge numbers of people from any industry sector within seconds.
As well as this, I know that statistically, as well as through personal experience – public speaking scares the living daylights out of 9 out of 10 people.
It was recently voted mankinds greatest fear!
I care passionately about my subject
Authentic communication has been the filter through which I have seen the world for the last 20 years. it’s my mission in life to help people not just to do it – but to LOVE it!
I want people to relish the opportunity to ‘stand and deliver’ in any scenario
A little about me
I was a shy child. My early life was something that I got through rather than got ‘from’, until one day, as a young adult, I woke up to a grey life with grey prospects, that was much in need of some radical colour. I knew that I needed to challenge myself.
I knew that speaking in public was what scared me most and so, rather perversely, I realised that some form of people-facing career was what I needed!
So, after endless interviews, I ended up right in the deep end – working as a speaker for a leading agency, delivering speeches and training in mindset and soft skills to audiences large and small, week in, week out.
It was my live ‘boot camp’, where, in a live speaking environment, I would forge my skills and continue to feed my growing passion for public speaking – understanding what worked and what didn’t; what would help others and what wouldn’t.
And heres the thing
During those years, I learned that my journey in confronting “Mankind’s Greatest Fear” – going from terror to triumphant – was something that everyone deserves to experience.

The Impact Formula
I have recently written ‘The Impact Formula’, which hits the shops in January 2018.
The book revolves around the belief that public speaking – whether through a camera, or live – is something to be enjoyed!!
It’s an opportunity, not a curse – an opportunity to find your voice; an opportunity to express yourself, your beliefs, your experience and knowledge with huge conviction and authenticity.
I’d love to help you with that journey.
