Neil Riley

Neil Riley is a speaker, trainer and coach.  His successful career in law was ended by a severe viral illness, lasting several years.  This practical experience of chronic illness and disability has given him a profound and sympathetic understanding of the physical and emotional problems that disabled people face.  Following his recovery, he worked for the Citizen's Advice Bureau as a volunteer adviser.  His experience of counselling, advising and representing those in society has given him practical skills and insight into the voluntary sector.

Neil is a regular after-dinner speaker.  He also gives talks both on Public Speaking and the Alexander Technique to the University of the Third Age, Townswomen's Guild, Rotary and Probus clubs, Church Fellowships, Women's Institutes and Disability Groups.

Neil has developed and presented Speechcraft Workshops to Charities, the Voluntary Sector and Educational Trusts.  He is also a winner of many humorous and serious speech contests. He gives one-to-one coaching in public speaking and presentation skills.  Neil believes that the ability to speak out confidently in public is the most powerful attribute anyone can possess.
