Being self-deprecating could backfire, so it's best avoided in the opinion of lovably British communication coach Jon Torrens, who explains the details of this risky technique.


By reducing stress and fear, I make giving talks enjoyable.

Using my experience as an introvert, stand-up comic and video games designer, I deliver short, fun but effective training to create successful, confident speakers. I work with both companies and individuals.

All my training is currently online. I can use Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Hangouts or Skype.
