At Gravitas Method™ we are experts at helping you to speak so others listen. Whether you are worried that you don’t have enough authority in meetings with senior people or that you feel worried about an upcoming presentation, meeting or panel, we can support you. We will share powerful and practical techniques to support you in building your natural gravitas. You will learn how to express yourself clearly with passion and confidence. As you ground yourself and trust in your values and find your voice you will gain the authority to speak so others listen.
Clients typically tell us that we help them to:
- Learn how to overcome anxiety
- Learn how to influence challenging people and win sponsorship for your ideas
- Find your grace under fire
- Find calm and control in the spotlight to speak with confidence and gravitas on panels and in key pitches and presentations
Like gravity, gravitas is about oppositional forces – your roots and wings. At Gravitas Method™ we will help you to use the grounding force that gives you influence and authority, the uplifting force that gives you energy and wit. We will show you how to use these qualities to truly find your voice and command the trust and respect of others.
Caroline and her team also run coaching and training for top talent within organisations.

A recent testimonial
I just wanted to let you know the panel went really well today. I felt well prepared and even managed to look into the audience! The patio and dragon breathing were particularly helpful. Lots of positive feedback. I’m so grateful for your support. Practicing and talking it through with you made all the difference.
All best, Susanna Wilson
A huge, heartfelt THANK YOU! The team got a great deal out of the day.We covered such a lot, and all agreed we had learned loads of useful tools to put into practice. The relationship triangle exercise transformed our role playing, and got us questioning what information was being processed, and how, in ways we hadn’t before.
The team have already begun to do group ‘mind mapping’ sessions using the case studies we were working on with you, and all agreed they will be putting these techniques into practice!
