My philosophy

Independent

I work for your best interests not those of a political party.

Unique

I have spent years developing my own system specifically for civic leaders.

Bespoke

You are not an off the shelf leader so you won’t get off the shelf service.

Personal

Building relationships is at the heart of everything I do.

The Complete Support Package

Supporting you through the most exciting challenge of your life

It is one of the toughest jobs in local government. Your council will try to support you, your family will try to support you. The problem is they don’t really know what you are going through. Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who’s been there. Someone who has gone through it.

The support sessions are very flexible. We’ll schedule monthly calls but I know that the life of a civic leader is rarely predictable. When you need to talk, you need to talk. I understand that. When we speak, we’ll discuss what is going well and what you’d like to do more of. We’ll look ahead to things that might be important or difficult. We’ll help you get a handle on what you need to focus on.

And yes, I’ll ask what isn’t going well. I won’t judge you or tell you what to do. I’ll just try to help you find your way through it because I’m only interested in supporting you.

You are supporting an entire community, let me support you.

  • When I found out I was going to be mayor the first person I called was Duncan. Duncan’s system really helped me prepare for office. It gave me the confidence to aim towards some big goals. But more than that it gave me the confidence to stay true to myself and do what I know was right. He put me at ease but he also helped me be the best mayor I could be.

  • I have no hesitation in recommending Duncan because of his fresh outlook on life. He was an innovative and successful mayor. He challenged perceptions and updated what people thought their mayor could achieve. I know that if you work with him he’ll help you to see how to make a real impact on your community and will guide you towards making the most of the fantastic opportunities you will have.

    Lesley Legge former Chair Oxfordshire County Council
  • I have found Duncan to be an exceedingly friendly and helpful individual, as well as being full of enthusiasm and positive energy as a speaker. He has a marvellous ability to engage a room when delivering a speech, and a warm and personable character.

The difficult speech

Helping you prepare for that tough speech

Over three sessions we’ll cover developing, practising and perfecting your speech.

We’ll start by developing what you are going to say. I’ll help you consider the purpose of the speech and the audience that will hear it. Then we’ll craft it using your own words. Then we’ll work out the best way to practise it. I’ll give you some tips and tricks that will save you a lot of time. Finally, we’ll perfect it. We’ll iron out the little glitches and polish it up so it really shines.

Sure you get a great speech but best of all you get a real confidence boost. You’ll be a better speaker at the end of the process.

This speech is important. Get the help you need.
